For the first three innings, Aaron Cook looked good...in fact ridiculously good...allowing no runs on just one hit.
Stop me if you've heard this one before.
Curtis Granderson led off the top of the 4th inning with a solo home run, Robinson Cano belted a two-run shot and just like that the Red Sox were trailing 3-0, with the Red Sox ultimately losing 5-4 to the Yankees at Fenway Park.
Cook (pictured) went 5 innings giving up those 3 runs on 7 hits; he struck out 2 and didn't walk anyone.
Among the highlights - Cody Ross, Bobby Valentine and Jerry Royster were all tossed in the bottom of the 8th inning on a VERY questionable 3-2 pitch. Dustin Pedroia left the game, presumably because his wife had gone into labor with their second child. Jarrod Saltalamacchia was a single short of the cycle; he hit his 24th home run of the season in the bottom of the 9th. Jim Monaghan 9/12/2012 10:59:00 PM Tweet
