Yankees fall apart in Boston

The Yankees had a bit of momentum, plus their best pitcher on the mound, but an across-the-board letdown sent them stumbling to a 6-1 loss to the Red Sox this afternoon at Fenway Park. Hiroki Kuroda allowed double-digit hits for the first time this year. Lyle Overbay botched a double play that would have prevented the first three Red Sox runs. Alfonso Soriano was double off second base in a full-of-potential second inning. The umpires appeared to botch two calls, ruling a Red Sox runner safe and a Yankees base stealer out. It was far too much for the Yankees, who got just two extra-base hits and went 1-for-8 with runners in scoring position. Six Red Sox had multiple hits, and a three-run fourth — when Overbay made his error and the umpires made one of their questionable calls — put Boston in control. Of course, this has been another day largely overshadowed by the Alex Rodriguez saga, which turned ugly once again with Rodriguez’s lawyer making bold accusations in a New York Times interview.
