We didn’t give you a full analysis of Thursday’s Yankee-Ray match-up. After trailing 12-0 after five innings, the Yankees made a little bit of comeback, but ultimately fell 15-8. Bartolo Colon pitched pretty poorly and probably pitched himself out of a post-season start.
After Friday’s rain out, the Yankees squared off against Jon Lester on Saturday afternoon. Holding a 2.5 game Wild Card lead with six games to go, Lester came out and gave the Red Sox his worst performance of the year, yielding eight runs in only two innings. Jesus Montero went 3 for 4 with a homer and four RBIs as the Yankees topped the Sox, 9-1.
