The Boston Red Sox weren’t able to complete the three game sweep in New York City but I will stay take two out of three games against the Yankees at this point in the season. On Thurday, the Red Sox seen the Yankees come from behind and score the final three runs of the game to win 3-2. Jason Giambi hit the game winning single off of Justin Masterson in the ninth inning.

Maseron ended up with the loss dropped his record to 4-4 on the year. Red Sox starting pitcher Jon Lester threw the ball pretty good as he went 6 2/3 innings while allowing five hits and zero runs. Hideki Okajima gave up a two run home run to Giambi in the seventh inning and that is when the Yankees tied the game and really put the pressure on the Sox.

Jacoby Ellsbury and Jason Varitek both had a rbi for the Sox. As a team they struggled at the plate but it could have been the whole get away day deal and they just wanted to get the series over, who knows. Hopefuly they bounce back on Friday however.
