The Boston Red Sox salvaged the final game of the 3-game series by blasting the Yankees 9-2. Jon Lester (9-3, 3.07) was once again excellent, and Big Papi and Manny Ramirez both woke up and were devastating.
Sidney Ponson (6-2, 4.59), who had been very luck in his previous starts, gave up 7 runs on 10 hits in 4 innings. Dan Giese, whose job is to replace a starter who failed, finished the game (4 innings, 2 runs).
Pretty bad ESPN game, with an hour delay due to rain.
The Yankees do win this series, though. They remain 3 back from the Tampa Bay Rays, and 2 back from Boston. In the Wild Card race, they are in 2nd place, 2 out from Boston.
