Yankees fall to Red Sox in extras

The New York Yankees fell to the Boston Red Sox, 5-4, in 11 innings on Friday night at Yankee Stadium. 

Jordan Montgomery started on the mound for New York and surrendered three runs over six innings while striking out four.

Boston jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead in the top of the first as Rafael Devers drilled one into the Yankees bullpen in right-center for a two-run home run.

In the bottom of the third, Giancarlo Stanton drilled a three-run home run into the right-field seats to give New York a 3-2 lead. 


However, the Red Sox answered in the top of the fourth as Christian Vazquez smacked one over the left-field wall to tie the game, 3-3. 

In the top of the seventh, Bobby Dalbec hammered one over the left-field wall to put Boston back on top, 4-3.

The Yankees knotted the game in the bottom of the ninth on Isiah Kiner-Falefa’s run-scoring fielder’s choice. That ended up sending the game to extra innings. 

The Red Sox plated the winning run in the top of the 11th on a wild pitch by Michael King. 

The Yankees will try to bounce back on Saturday with Jameson Taillon on the mound. The first pitch is set for 7:15 p.m.
