Bullpen and defense fail Yankees late, Red Sox seize division title in 11-6 win

After taking the first two games of their series against the Boston Red Sox, the Yankees sought to complete the sweep on Thursday and prevent the Red Sox from celebrating a division title at Yankee Stadium. As is usually the case between these two teams, Thursday’s game was a back and forth contest but the Red Sox ultimately prevailed 11-6 and will be leaving New York as the AL East champs.


Injury Updates: Ellsbury, A-Rod, Sabathia, and Castro (May 8)

The Yankees are trying to claw their way back into relevance in the American League East division race, but several injuries are getting in the way.

However, the aforementioned four players are still not back yet, so we’ve compiled a list of injury updates for all of you so you can view them at one place.
