Everyone expected the Sox and Yankees to battle for the AL East championship right through their series at Fenway Park on this final weekend of the regular season. They were swept the first year, and only won a single game the second year. Red Sox relievers have been the problem - especially down the stretch in September, when they posted a 4.84 ERA that was the worst in the AL.
Prior to the season, Sox manager Alex Cora saw this kind of potential in Xander Bogaerts and says he told him to just be a more aggressive hitter at the plate. "Simply stated, the New England sports world is a better place if the Red Sox are playing the vaunted Bronx Bombers in the American League Division one week from today". "They were hit around". Yes, Judge and Stanton contributed significantly to the total, but they did not lead a lopsided charge to the record.
And part of that was because they just kept winning.
The Yankees scored six runs in the fourth inning against Cuevas to take an 8-0 lead and cruised to an 11-6 victory at Fenway Park.
On Thursday, the Yankees also hit four homers in a win over the Tampa Bay Rays, matching the 2005 Texas Rangers for second in single-season homers.
The starting pitching was also strong, led by Chris Sale, who was likely headed for the AL Cy Young before an injury limited him to 14 innings in August and September. But it's Yankees-Red Sox, so it can't actually be meaningless. Cora is hoping that knuckleballer Steven Wright will be useful in long relief. Boston added three more in the second inning. If the Sox face the A's then it would be either Eovaldi or Eduardo Rodriguez.
'I wouldn't have thought it got to me that fast with a fan throwing it, ' Stanton said.
That doesn't inspire confidence among Boston fans. Betts helped the Red Sox earn an 11-6 win when these two teams last met on September 20.
"He needs to be better", Cora said.
"Everybody is going to have struggles throughout the year". And it feels like the teams are overdue for a playoff matchup, as the best rivalry in baseball has not been featured in the postseason since 2004. "I think it's fine on both sides". That followed a poor stretch, where he went 0-2 with a 9.16 ERA in four starts.
NY tied the record Friday night with four homers in an 11-6 win over the Red Sox. The Red Sox have no clear setup option ahead of closerCraig Kimbrel, with journeyman Ryan Brasier and the inconsistent Matt Barnesmost often getting the call.
