What might have been the most impressive thing about last night’s epic win over the Red Sox is the pitching — for both teams.
The Yankees and Red Sox have two of the best lineups in baseball, stacked with All-Stars, World Series Champions and future Hall of Famers.
These two teams are accustomed to playing long, high-scoring games, but last night only two runs were scored. Both starters lived up to expectations, and the bullpens surpassed expectations. Any hitter in either lineup is highly capable of hitting a homer, but all pitchers — except the last one — avoided the longball and escaped 19 situations with runners in scoring position.
