Red Sox 5, Yankees 6: Just the longest sigh imaginable

The Yankees tried to give the Red Sox an opportunity in the first when Montgomery made an error on a slow roller from Rafael Devers and Gio Urshela booted a ball from Xander Bogaerts (it was ruled a hit, but I disagreed with that scoring) to put two on with one out.

This time, Alex Verdugo led things off with an infield single before Devers reached on an error when Gleyber Torres just straight-up whiffed on an easy toss into second base.

The bad news is he loaded the bases while recording only two outs, leaving it up to Marcus Walden to take care of Gary Sánchez and hold this lead.

It was a bizarre (to put it nicely) decision to use Walden here, and sure enough Sánchez cut the Red Sox lead in half with a ground-rule double out to the right field corner.

Weber came back out for a second inning of work, and it took no time at all for Luke Voit to smack a base hit into left field, giving the Yankees their first lead of the night.
