Yankees ace Luis Severino rocked in loss to Red Sox

Yankees ace Luis Severino rocked in loss to Red Sox

There was a lot more wrong with the Yankees than Giancarlo Stanton's bat pushing cold air around Fenway Park on Tuesday night.

Unofficially, the Red Sox game against the Yankees drew an 8.9 rating Tuesday night on NESN, which would have constituted the highest rating for any game during the 2017 season.

Staff ace Luis Severino allowed a run in the first, three in the second and another in the fourth inning to put the Yankees in a hole far too deep to climb out of against Chris Sale.

For the other team in NY, it was an 8-6 win over the lowly Miami Marlins, but with the victory the Mets moved to 9-1 for the season - the best start in franchise history. Boston won, 8-4, with Cerone driving in three runs. With the Red Sox getting off to such an impressive start, there's plenty of credit to go around.

Betts hit a grand slam, went 4-for-4 at the plate, drove in four runs and scored five runs.

It's been a while since the team last committed an error. Ramirez followed with a run-scoring single to left-center for a 4-0 lead. Sanchez, who was the DH, missed the previous two games due to a cramp in the right leg suffered Friday evening.

Entering Tuesday night's game Stanton was hitting.167 (7-for-42) with three homers, seven RBIs, a.700 OPS and an alarming 20 strikeouts.

Cardinals 5, Brewers 3 (11 innings): Matt Carpenter cracked a two-run homer in the bottom of the 11th inning as St. Louis outlasted visiting Milwaukee. The Yankees fall below.500 at 5-6. It was the first game this young season that the Yankees had no chance to win. He is 15-11 with a 4.53 ERA in 38 career appearances (37 starts) against NY. With AP Photos.Mookie Betts hit a grand slam on a monster night, leading Chris Sale and the Boston Red Sox over the NY 14-1 for their ninth straight victory. And that included outdueling Sale and the Red Sox last September 3 with six innings of one-run ball in what became a 9-2 Yankees victory.

On the hill, Chris Sale went the first six innings, allowing one run, eight hits and eight strikeouts.

When Stanton whiffed in the opening inning there was one out, a runner on first and no score. Stanton did drill a 115.5 miles per hour single to right in his third at-bat.

The ESPN broadcast showed Severino extending his hands in the second inning before throwing his pitches, which could have been one reason the Red Sox scored four in the first two frames.

With the team leading by a slim margin, it was a bit surprising to see J.D. Martinez trot out to left field.

Granderson's first homer as a Blue Jay occurred after Sanchez (1-1) lost his no-hit bid on the first pitch of the eighth by allowing a double to Tim Beckham.
