Recap - the #*%@ing Bullpen Does It Again

With some help from an anemic offense.

One night after serving up eight of the nine runs the Yankees scored, the Red Sox bullpen coughed up another game as New York beat Boston 4-2 at Fenway Park.

Hanley Ramirez drove in both Boston runs. He singled home David Ortiz in the first and hit an RBI double in the fifth to drive in Jackie Bradley Jr.

Austin Romine homered off Boston starting pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez for the first New York run off Boston starter Eduardo Rodriguez (pictured) in the third. Brad Ziegler game up three runs on three hits and a walk in the eighth. Only one of the runs was earned; a two-run error by Andrew Benintendi in left field off the bat of Jacoby Ellsbury accounted for the rest of the damage.

Rodriguez deserved better. He went seven innings scattering three hits in the no-decision outing. He struck out six and walked only one.

Alex Rodriguez went 0-4 in his final Fenway at bat as a Yankee; he drove in a run with a ground ball out in the eighth.
