The severely shorthanded Yankees try again against the Red Sox on Saturday.

All it took was one bad inning on Friday night for the New York Yankees to fall against the Boston Red Sox. Despite a quality start from Jordan Montgomery, the Bronx Bombers lost 4-0 as several key players, including Aaron Judge, were placed on the COVID injured list.

Boston remains in first place in the AL East, while the Yankees slipped to sole possession of fourth and remain nine games out.
