Payback in the Bronx

The Yankees got their revenge when CC Sabathia drilled David Ortiz in the fourth inning. Ortiz got his revenge when he led the Red Sox to a seven-run seventh inning that buried the Yankees in an 8-3 loss at Yankee Stadium. The Red Sox have won eight of nine games against the Yankees this season, and they’ve swept back-to-back series in the Bronx. Ortiz had never been hit by a pitch in 697 regular-season plate appearances against the Yankees, but Sabathia hit him after Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez were hit by pitches earlier in the game. At the time the Yankees had a 2-0 lead on Curtis Granderson’s two-run home run. The Yankees led the American League East three days ago. Now they’re two games behind Boston.
