It was a bad night all around, the weather was as miserable as were the Yankees. The Yankees lose to the Red Sox 11 to 6 in a 90 + degree evening. Nothing was good about this night as the Yankees dropped into 2nd place behind the hated Red Sox.
Red Sox have played 2 more games than the Yankees, 1 in each column, so (technically) they are tied for 1st place. But it’s no fun to sitting in hot Yankee Stadium listening to the Red Sox fans cheering. It’s still a long season and same as last year when the Yankee beat the Red Sox in the last regular season series between them to tie the season record. That’s why they play all 162 games.
