The New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox, they were tied heading into this game, Friday night, it's primetime baseball...what more could you want?
Well, I have one thing. I would have liked a Red Sox win, but it was not to be tonight. Bartolo Colon was pulled at the perfect time by the Yankees, and despite a strong performance from Jon Lester, that was not enough for the home team to win.
The Sox need all of their hitters to connect on a given night. When Josh Reddick was 2/4 the rest of the team struggled. When they are hitting well, he ends up struggling. This is a good team, but they need to be just that, a team.
