The Boston Red Sox faced off against the New York Yankees on Saturday night for the second game of a three-game series. New York took Friday’s game by a score of 5-1 and notched another victory on Saturday by edging out the Red Sox, 5-2.
Masahiro Tanaka took the mound for his first start of the season. His season debut was delayed due to a head injury he suffered after taking a line drive to the head during a team practice earlier in July. He made quick work of the Red Sox in the first inning, striking out two batters while allowing just one hit.
