Ouch! Yanks Drop 2 of 3 to Boston, Fall From First

Loss Rubber Game Late with Blown Save from Mariano

(Boston, MA) – The slump against the Red Sox continues.  The Yanks (69-44) fall to 2-10 on the season against them, this time losing a tough one late on another blown save (5th) from Mariano.  Scutaro pounded a 2-2 pitch off the monster and would score on a Pedroia sac fly to tie it while Phil Hughes lost it in the 10th.   The Yanks wasted a very nice outing from Freddy Garcia who matched Josh Beckett.  The promising 3-2 win vs. Lester and the Sox on Friday lost some luster after CC got beat up in a 10-4 loss on Saturday and then falling on national TV again.  The Yanks are now 1 back in the AL East with 59 to play.

Notes:  Nunez and Gardner hit solo homers to account for the Yanks runs.  Girardi announced before the game that Posada was being removed as the everyday DH due to his .230 BA.
