For the first time in a long time, the New York Yankees couldn’t get the offense going as Luis Severino’s MLB debut turns into a loss.

All it took was a knuckleballer to ground the New York Yankees offense.

Steven Wright, starting pitcher for the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday night, pitched eight-innings only allowing one run on four hits while striking out nine. This performance came against a team who compiled 90 runs in their last nine games.

The Sox took this one 2-1 when it was all said and done.

Despite taking the loss, super prospect Luis Severino fared well in his MLB debut. He only went five, but struck out seven and allowed just one earned run (2 total) on two hits. His pitch count just reached epic proportions too early in the game.

It’s easy to see why Brian Cashman wanted nothing to do with trading this guy away. His movement and polished look seems to be ahead of schedule.

Both teams will wrap up this three-game set in the rubber-game tomorrow night at The Stadium.
