A bad day that kept getting worse

Joba Chamberlain went on the disabled list, Russell Martin was bothered by a sore back and first place in the American League East went to the Red Sox. Obviously this wasn’t a good day for the Yankees. A.J. Burnett gave Boston a big early lead and the Yankees lost 11-6, their seventh loss in eight games against Boston this season. Jorge Posada wasn’t available because his son was having surgery, Boone Logan had another frustrating relief appearance and both Francisco Cervelli and Eduardo Nunez both managed to be hit by foul balls on a day when nearly everything seemed to go wrong for the Yankees. Mark Teixeira was healthy and Derek Jeter moved one hit closer to 3,000, but highlights were few and far between today.
