Bill Belichick Marvels At Success Of 2018 Red Sox

Then Ryder is joined by WEEI insider Rob bradford to discuss the Yankees series, Sale's DL stint, and what the rest of the season could hold for the Red Sox.

He pitched six crisp innings in a win against Kansas City in his NY debut, but the illness took him out of a critical four-game series in Boston and the Yankees were swept by the major league-leading Red Sox.

"Any 10 hopper that goes through for a hit feels pretty good", the usually quiet Benintendi said, breaking into a grin.

"I know what I said". Kind of stole this one. That defeat to the lowly Orioles kicked off a losing streak that reached its fifth game with Sunday's 5-4 loss in 10 innings at Fenway Park.

Boston Red Sox left-handed ace Chris Sale, on the disabled list because of shoulder inflammation, will not return for this week's series in Toronto. But no, Cashman decided it was a great time to poke the best team in baseball with his bravado, as the Yankees rolled into town with superstars like Shane Robinson and Luke Voit anchoring a squad completely confused about how to actually play baseball.

The first pitcher to come in from the bullpen was Jonathan Holder who, well, wasn't to great to say the least.

In the 10th, Benintendi bounced one up the middle to score Tony Renda, who came in as a pinch runner to make his major league debut, to win it.

Matt Barnes (4-3) worked a ideal inning in the top of the 10th.

In the process, they turned a 5-1/2 game lead in the AL East into a 9-1/2 game edge.

"Yeah, we saw it", outfielder Mookie Betts said. Jackie Bradley Jr. scored from first on a throwing error by third baseman Miguel Andujar to send the game into extra innings. Belichick enjoyed the game alongside Red Sox president of baseball ops. Masahiro Tanaka allowed Betts' homer but little else among six hits.

Boston's four-game sweep was facilitated by Aroldis Chapman, his control astray, melting down in the ninth inning to blow a 4-1 lead.

Heath Hembree walked Shane Robinson before Bogaerts booted what looked like a sure double-play grounder, allowing two runs. Giancarlo Stanton followed with an RBI single off Heath Hembree, and Torres' sacrifice fly increased New York's lead to three. He faced several lengthy at-bats and lasted 4 2/3 innings, and he remains unbeaten since April 17.

Pearce had all four of Boston's homers in the first two games - three of them on Thursday night - but manager Alex Cora had Moreland back in the lineup at first base and he responded.

"I wish the Red Sox nothing but the best, not that they need any help from me", he added.

"The fans here, they took that as a pivotal moment on winning a championship", he said. He will square off against the Yankees on Friday.

"He's out of the woods, virus-wise", Boone said before New York's game against the Chicago White Sox. Boone said: "They hope it's a pain-free situation". "This is a test we're going through right now, there's no question".
