Clay Holmes blows save as Yankees fall to Red Sox in extras

The New York Yankees fell to the Boston Red Sox, 3-2, in 10 innings on Friday night at Fenway Park.

Clay Holmes’ struggles continued as he allowed a game-tying RBI single to J.D. Martinez with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning. The right-hander has now blown three saves in his last 11 appearances.

Lou Trivino served up a walk-off single to Tommy Pham in the bottom of the 10th.

Both of New York’s runs came in the first three innings. In the top of the first, Anthony Rizzo drove in a run with a double. Aaron Judge crushed his Major-League-leading 46th home run of the season over the Green Monster in the top of the third.

Domingo Germán started on the mound for the Yankees and tossed six innings of one-run ball while striking out four.

The Yankees will try to snap their three-game skid on Saturday as Frankie Montas will make his second start with the club. The first pitch is slated for 7:15 p.m.
