Joe Girardi tried to shake things up tonight. Instead, the Yankees gave him more of the same, and the manager watched the last few innings from the clubhouse. In what was unmistakably the low point of the season thus far, the Yankees were shutout 6-0 by the Red Sox. Jorge Posada asked to be taken out of the lineup, Girardi was ejected for shouting at home plate umpire Mike Winters and the Yankees lost their fourth in a row. It’s their longest losing streak of the season, and they’ve now lost eight of their past 11. CC Sabathia hasn’t pitched well in three straight starts, and this time he could only limit the damage so long. Adrian Gonzalez’s three-run home run in the seventh put the game well out of reach for a lineup that’s struggling regardless of batting order.
