So I’m sitting here reading the AP story on the Sox/Yanks spring training game…was today a slow news day??
The Red Sox blew that comfortable lead just as they had done last Oct. 16 in Game 7 when they squandered a 5-2 lead in the eighth and lost 6-5 on Aaron Boone's solo homer in the 11th.
On Sunday, the Red Sox gave up a 4-0 lead as the Yankees hit four homers -- two by former Boston first baseman Tony Clark and one each by Jeter and Ruben Sierra. Clark and Miguel Cairo each had three hits for New York.
Mariano Rivera, who pitched a perfect third inning, got the win just as he did in Game 7 when he finished with three shutout innings.
Here’s what I’d like you to do in the comments section. Do an AP writeup of yesterday’s game, with the following changes: Score was 11-7 Sox, Pedro/Schilling/Lowe got bombed for 4 runs in the first 2 innings, and the Sox came back against AA/AAA pitching.
