But Mitch Moreland hit a two-out, two-run single with the bases loaded to cap off a four-run seventh inning and lift the Red Sox into a 7-6 lead on their way to a 31st come-from-behind win of the season.
Pomeranz appeared to tweak something, and manager John Farrell chose to remove him from the game after he attempted two warm-up pitches. Addison Reed earned the win in relief and Craig Kimbrel picked up his 29th save. It was first launched in New Hampshire in 2010 and now runs in all five New England states outside of Massachusetts.The $1,000 Red Sox Service Scholarships are awarded to students based on academic performance, financial aid eligibility, and demonstrated community service. The Sox lead the Yankees by four games in the AL East, but that could all change this weekend. This defeat will need to be forgotten quickly as the same two teams square off again tonight. Their division lead is back up to five games, they have the American League's best record since May 21, and they're a season-high 19 games above.500.
Trying to keep the momentum going, the Red Sox next turn to their greatest asset. So, the Yankees should still take comfort in the fact that they have plenty of time to regroup, but this will be a tough one to get over.
"We're pretty good at it this year, it seems like", Moreland said of Boston's flair for the dramatic.
Sabathia has owned the Red Sox this year and Sale is Sale. There is no doubt that the Sox are enjoying the space they have put between themselves and their rivals and they look forward to doing more damage.
"With them being the next-closest team, to get that win and kind of separate ourselves a little bit more and start the series off on the right note, yeah, it's a big one", Moreland said. They are the ones that are following us, so it's nice to gain some ground there.
"There's no question we miss those two guys and really looking forward to their return", Red Sox manager John Farrell said.
The Red Sox took a 3-0 lead on home runs by Rafael Devers (with a runner on base) and Christian Vazquez off Yankees starter Jordan Montgomery.
Kahnle, who proved to be the costliest for the Yankees to acquire in their seven-player deal with the Chicago White Sox, could not stem the Red Sox rally.
