Aroldis Chapman's Blown Save Tore This Yankees Fan's Heart Into Pieces

  • Aroldis Chapman's Blown Save Tore This Yankees Fan's Heart Into Pieces

The score was tied at 1 at the time and Montgomery was cruising, but Girardi wanted to go to his deep bullpen.

The win improves the Red Sox to 67-50 on the season and gives them 5.5 game lead over the Yankees in the AL East. With the Red Sox trying to rally off NY closer Aroldis Champman, Nunez tried to advance from second to third on a fly ball to left field. They would be on an 11-game winning streak if not for the Yankees' five-run rally in the eighth inning of last Friday's game.

A stretch as dominant as this needs contributions from several players.

With three starts against the Yankees thus far, Sale has now compiled a 1.19 ERA and 0.838 WHIP against the Yankees.

This one Yankees fan recorded that "nope" and the hope that preceded it with a video on Twitter, and it is glorious if you are not a Yankees fan.

And now Joe Girardi has to think long and hard about whether to keep Chapman in the role of closer, especially when he has options like Dellin Betances, who seems to be out of his recent slump, and Robertson. This means taking anything less than three of the four upcoming games against the crosstown rival New York Mets is unacceptable. "That's as close as you can get to not hitting a homer in this stadium as it gets". Important players such as Starlin Castro and Matt Holliday are still on the DL. CC Sabathia went on the disabled list with a knee injury.




The Yankees have been a surprise all season.

In the bottom of the ninth the Yankees threatened to win it with a runner on third, but Craig Kimbrel came on to get the final out of the inning, stranding that runner at the hot corner, and it was on to the tenth. Aaron Judge and Aroldis Chapman have both struggled mightily since the All-Star break.

Given all the action and drama that took place after Chris Sale left last night's game, the performance of the Red Sox ace easily could be overlooked.

He's right, but it still may haunt the Yankees for years. And a late lead blown in a 7-6 loss to the Astros. They'll see him twice more in the next three weeks, as Sox manager John Farrell reconfigured his rotation recently to make sure of it. The Red Sox will have to deal with Bruce and the Indians tonight at Fenway, a make-up game from a rain-out in Boston last week.

On August 7, the Tampa Bay Rays held the second AL Wild Card. They have since lost four straight games and are below.500. They have won seven of their past eight games and are now two games above.500.

Sale is 14-4 with a 2.57 ERA and can join Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw as the second 15-game victor in the majors. "He made one mistake". The final 27 games the Bronx Bombers will play this season are against either the Orioles, Rays, Blue Jays, Rangers, Twins, and Royals. When Sonny Gray and Jaime Garcia were acquired to bolster the Yankees rotation, the young southpaw was sent down to Triple-A.
