Another day another New York Yankees loss.

In the second game of a three-game set against the Boston Red Sox, the Yankees went quietly and were shutout 8-0 to lose the series.

After an outing in which he surrendered ten hits, seven earned runs including four home runs versus the Tampa Bay Rays, Michael Pineda bounced back and pitched decently well tonight at Fenway.

In five innings pitched, Big Mike surrendered two runs on five hits and struck out three. At times, the right-hander has trouble finding the strike zone and it led to 106 pitches (63 strikes).

Brian McCann went 2-for-3, Starlin Castro went 1-for-3 as they seem to be the only ones contributing even the slightest bit for an offense that has scored three runs or less in their seventh straight game (2-5 in that span).

For Boston, Jackie Bradley Jr. provided most of the offense with a 3-for-3 day with three RBI and two runs scored. David Ortiz also hit a home run in the bottom of the seventh of Johnny Barbato to pad the lead.

The Red Sox got a nice outing out of Rick Porcello, who hurled seven innings of shutout ball. New York’s offense felt they finally caught a break and got a righty to face-off against, but they struck out six times and only managed five hits off him.

In the seventh inning, the Red Sox put up a four spot. In the last 29 innings, the Yankees have scored four runs. That statistic fittingly describes the vibe of the fan base as the Yanks drop their fifth game in a row, and their second straight series.

Yankee Killer:

There are very few hitters that crush the Yankees as much as David Ortiz does.

Entering tonight’s ballgame, Big Papi had a .307/.396/.568 slash line with 48 home runs and 160 RBI in 225 games against the Bombers. He also has five postseason home runs in 14 games played.

Tonight, he added to the home run total with a solo shot and another RBI against his team’s hated rival.

His now 49 dingers are the second most against any opponent. The Toronto Blue Jays are first on that list for surrendering 59 to Ortiz.

This Day In Yankees’ History:

On April 30th, 2010, Mariano Rivera tied Eric Gagne 51st straight game at home with a save in a 6-4 Yankees win. Also on that day, Rivera passed Roger Clemens for10th place on the Yankees all-time list strikeout list with 1,015.

What’s Next:

The final game of this three-game series will be broadcasted nationally tomorrow night on ESPN.

Nathan Eovaldi (1-2, 4.38 ERA) vs David Price (3-0, 5.76 ERA)

Nasty Nate is on a quest to prove that the pitcher who flirted with a no-no last time out is here to stay.

The hard-throwing righty no-hit the Rangers for six innings and notched his first victory this season thanks to an incredible mix of his splitter and high-90s fastball.

The Price has not been right for the Sox $217-milion investment, but he showed his true potential after a 14-strikeout gem against the Braves.

On Sunday night baseball, Price will be making his first start in the Red Sox-Yankees rivalry. Price owns a 13-7 record with a 4.04 ERA against New York.

First pitch will be at 8:05 but that could be affected by the rain that is in the forecast.
