Yankees lose another one

For just a moment, there was a real sense of late optimism in Yankee Stadium. A triple and a wild pitch had pulled the Yankees within two, and a gutsy double steal had moved the tying run into scoring position, but when Jorge Posada grounded to second base to end the eighth inning, the place fell silent. A 5-4 loss to the Red Sox was just the latest in a string of disappointments while the Yankees continue to search for offensive consistency. Bartolo Colon walked off the mound with a standing ovation and a 2-2 tie in the seventh, but Joba Chamberlain allowed a go-ahead sac fly and game-changing two-run homer. ┬áThe Yankees chances to rally were cut short by Nick Swisher’s strikeout and Posada’s grounder in the eighth, then by Mark Teixeira’s game-ending popup in the ninth.
