Yankees topple Red Sox in 16 innings

Share

A wacky play in the 11th inning of Saturday's Yankees-Red Sox game looked legitimately like an Abbott and Costello routine.

It was announced in the press box that the Red Sox were playing the game under protest.

Both the Red Sox's and Yankees' bullpens were effective in relief of their dominant starters as each team only threatened once in extra innings before Did Gregorius broke through in the 16th inning. Ben Heller, the seventh Yankees reliever, who worked the final two frames, recorded the final three outs for the victory.

The game featured a pitching matchup between Chris Sale and Luis Severino.

- Fernando Abad gave up two hits in 1/3 of an inning.

Holliday, in his second game back from the disabled list, hit a leadoff homer off Craig Kimbrel in the ninth that tied the score 1-1.

Pelicans, Rajon Rondo agree to one-year deal
According to a report from The Vertical's Shams Charania , Rondo has agreed to a one-year deal with the New Orleans Pelicans . Rondo is obviously at the tail end of his career, which is why it makes sense that this would be a one-year rental.

Boston scored in the third. Then he pushed the game into the 11th inning by retiring Tzu-Wei Lin and Mookie Betts on fly balls to right.

- Xander Bogaerts went 1-for-6 with an infield single and a walk.

He cruised through the next 5 2/3 innings before being lifted with a runner on first and two outs in the eighth inning with Aaron Judge coming up.

Kimbrel entered and got Judge to line to right after a 10-pitch at-bat. Holliday had been hitless in seven at-bats, but he cleared the seats above the Green Monster for his 15th homer. The Yankees got a runner to third in the second inning but Sale struck out Garrett Cooper to end the threat.

In the 16th, Jacoby Ellsbury led off with a double, followed by singles from Chase Headley, Didi Gregorius (RBI) and Austin Romine (RBI).

Red Sox manager John Farrell argued in favor of an interference call. It was his first on the mound since his latest rehab efforts were stopped because of shoulder pain. He will be replaced by Brandon Workman. He's scheduled to throw two more bullpen sessions before facing hitters.
