Yankees rally for improbable comeback over Red Sox

Yankees Rally Late For Big Win Over Red Sox

Hicks' two-run homer to right made it 3-2 and ended the Yankees' shutout streak at 16 innings over the last two games. Hicks had never previously faced Reed and was just "looking to get a ball up and try to get a hit in that situation".

The stunning turn of events meant the Red Sox wasted Rodriguez' best start since coming off the disabled list.

Taillon (7-5) allowed six hits, one walk and two runs while striking out seven in six-plus innings for his first win since July 20, a span of three winless outings.

"If it happened tomorrow, I would take the chance tomorrow again", Nunez said after the loss. "But now that I'm back, it feels good to be around the guys and see their smiling faces again". Eligible for free agency at the end of the World Series, the 17-year veteran is 9-5 with a 4.05 ERA in 19 starts. "Personally, I think it's the play that saved the game".

"He's continued to improve all year long", Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. Jean Segura's throwing error allowed Mike Trout to score the tiebreaking run, leaving the Angels and Mariners a half-game behind Minnesota for the second AL wild-card berth. "It doesn't fall off".

With a three-run lead, the Red Sox were six outs away from scoring their ninth straight win and opening a 5.5 game first place edge.

That said, they would appear to have a slight edge in the pitching matchups in this series, with Rodriguez (4.08 ERA/4.15 FIP) going up against Garcia (4.49 ERA/4.03 FIP) on Friday night, Pomeranz (3.36 ERA /3.68 FIP) against newly-minted staff ace Luis Severino (2.91 ERA/2.09 FIP) on Saturday and Sale (2.57 ERA/1.97 FIP) against rookie Jordan Montgomery (4.05 ERA/3.95 FIP) on Sunday night. Pomeranz is 5-0 in his last eight starts. Rodriguez is seeing NY for the first time this season and is 4-1 with a 2.66 ERA in seven career starts versus the Yankees.

Todd Frazier hit a tie-breaking single with nobody out in the bottom of the eighth inning as the New York Yankees pulled off a stunning comeback to beat the Boston Red Sox 5-4, ending their long-time rival's season-high eight-game winning streak.

The Yankees led 4-3.

That stat would be prescient for Friday's matchup against Red Sox southpaw Eduardo Rodriguez. He'll do battle against the Cardinals his next time out on Wednesday. Not with the division-leading Red Sox in town. The Yankees' deficit in the AL East is down to 3.5 games.

"The key for him has been bringing stability back to the knee and the brace has been a big part of that", Girardi said. "We just knew they were going to come through and they came through big for us".
