Yanks’ would-be epic comeback falls short

The Yankees trailed by as many as nine runs tonight, but brought it back to a respectable 10-8 loss against the Red Sox.

Best of All: The Yankees smashed six homers against Red Sox pitching, four of which off Josh Beckett. Alex Rodriguez and Mark Teixeira each clubbed a pair, while Curtis Granderson and Nick Swisher added homers of their own. 

The fact that the Yankees had one crack at tying this game in the ninth inning was unbelievable. If I’m the Red Sox, I’m not a very confident team heading into the weekend.

Worst of All: Andy Pettitte was a major disappointment tonight. Yankees fans hoped he’d approach 100 pitches tonight. Instead, he exited with one out in the fourth inning after 75 pitches. He allowed seven runs, six earned, on 10 hits.

Coming Up: Like I said, the Yankees have all the momentum heading into the weekend despite the loss. I expect tonight’s high-octane offense to continue Saturday and Sunday. However, the Yankees will need a couple of good pitching performances out of Ivan Nova and Dustin Moseley if they want to clinch a playoff berth.
