Four Real? Where's Koji? No need, as Jon Lester and Grady Sizemore aid in win over Yankees (VIDEO) 4-11-14
Sabathia only made two mistakes all game, but they cost him
Bronx, New York- It was a pitchers duel Friday night between CC Sabathia and Jon Lester, but when the arms went to battle, all it took was one poor inning by the pinstripes' ace for the Red Sox to take advantage. Here are the four at bats that changed the game:
3) Bottom of the seventh and Jon Lester is getting tired. After getting two quick outs to start the inning, Lester gives up an Ichiro single and then walks Brian Roberts. Kelly Johnson steps up and works a 7 pitch single to plate Roberts and Lester's night is done. Junichi Tazawa is left to clean up the mess, and he does easily, getting Derek Jeter to fly out weakly to left. 4-2 Red Sox.
4) Bottom of the ninth, and where's Koji? Edward Mujica takes the hill for the ninth, and does his own version of Koji-time, as he sits the Yankees down in order, 1-2-3 for his first save of 2014. Red Sox win. Theeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee Red Sox win!
The story of the day is Lester's performance, giving up two runs on six hits in almost seven innings. Grady Sizemore has really been the suprise of the year for the Red Sox, so let's hope he stays healthy to make a difference for the entire year. The Sox go back to work tomorrow afternoon when John Lackey faces Hiroki Kuroda.
