3 Red Sox mistakes against Yankees that sum up a disastrous season

The Boston Red Sox have had anything but a favorable season, and their recent run against the New York Yankees has exposed some of their weaknesses.

That Boston Red Sox had a chance to show some progress at home against the Yankees this week. Instead, their two-game streak just showcased all of the things that have made this season so frustrating.

Losing 7-6 and 5-3, Boston could not gain an advantage and fell back to 2-6 in the last eight games.

So it’s no wonder that the team, which is sometimes the best team in the AL Ost depending on the season, needs work.

3 Red Sox mistakes against Yankees that sum up a disastrous season

One of the biggest disappointments was a minor Grounder hit by JD Martinez. Martinez hits the grounder for a short stop. The Yankees shortstop set it up with ease and threw it to second place, resulting in an out. The second baseman then threw it to first without hesitation, getting Martinez out and completing a double play.

Unfortunately, Boston infielder Rafael Devers also got a strikeout, barely swinging on a questionable pitch with a complete lack of confidence.

In the worst game of all, the Red Sox missed multiple shots in the space of 60 seconds. Yankees infielder Gleyber Torres hit right field with a solid drive. The Red Sox right fielder threw him in first, the second baseman took cover and missed him completely.

The catcher saved and threw for the out for the first time, and the first baseman missed completely. The Red Sox gave up a run through the entire debacle.

Boston is certainly becoming less and less likely to make the playoffs while the Yankees are starting to look a little better than they did last month. The Red Sox are unlikely to make it from the bottom of the NL East rankings this season.
