After watching the pitiful loss to the Boston Red Sox, Aaron Boone and the New York Yankees are wondering when they’ll get some backup.

Did anyone else witness that absolutely brutal shellacking the New York Yankees took at the hands of the Boston Red Sox? A 1-0 loss is hard enough, but the Yankees gave up 14 runs to assist in the rout.

The Yankees have been lacking in reinforcements since the injury bug began to attack the team last week but there is good news out of this loss! That news is that the Yankees are getting some of these guys back!

Well, mainly one important member of their outfield in Aaron Hicks.

Hicks started this evening with the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Railriders, playing center field and batting third. Hicks went 1-for-3 with a nice single to right.

Not only that, but Hicks told reporters after the game, per Conor Foley, that he’s happy to be back out there.

Overall some pretty good news on a pretty “crappy” night, as Aaron Boone put it to reporters after the game. However, Hicks wasn’t the only one that was the star of the show in Triple-A Tuesday night.

Gleyber Torres has turned around a poor first game to suddenly become a red-hot hitter. Torres went 2-for-5 tonight to bring his batting average up to .348 on the season.

Torres had a poor showing at big league camp this spring but he’s clearly showing now that he’s no fluke. He’s ready to make the step up to the majors whenever they’ll have him.

While no one wants to discuss the game that happened in Boston, let’s end this on a positive note. Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge each had multiple hits and of those multiple hits, they were the hardest hit in the MLB.

If the Yankees can’t flaunt their score, they can at least brag about some stats. Because that is pretty impressive for these two heavy hitters.

Well, it’s a new day for the Yankees as they take on David Price and the Red Sox starting at 7:10 PM on the YES Network.
