BOSTON – The Yankees lost in wild style on Thursday night, as painkiller Brooks Kriske followed Chad Green’s outburst with one of his men.
Kriske threw four wild throws in the 10th inning and Hunter Renfroe’s sacrificial fly scored Xander Bogaerts from third to help the Red Sox win 5-4 at Fenway Park.
The non-German Yankees, in the ninth inning, fell short of a fifth straight win, which should have continued an unlikely streak with some of their top players sidelined.
Instead, Green’s struggles continued. He allowed Kiké Hernandez a two-goal double and the Red Sox tied the game in ninth place.
The Yankees took the lead again at the top of 10 on a sacrificial plane Brett Gardner was flown by freestyle runner Tyler Wade, who finished third on the ground by DJ LeMahieu.
But Kriske advanced to the bottom of the 10th round and threw a wild throw that sent Boston’s free runner, Rafael Devers, in third. A second wild throw scored the Devers end of the game before Kriske went to the Bogaerts to put JD Martinez up.
Bogaerts moved into second and then to third, on Kriske’s third and fourth turf in the inning, before Martinez blew the whistle. But Renfroe followed up with a smash to the right to win it.
With the loss, the Yankees fell eight games to the Red Sox in first place, squandering a goal to take the lead from Giancarlo Stanton in the eighth inning and a 5²/₃ goalless game against Jordan Montgomery.
The Yankees were without pain relievers Zack Britton and Aroldis Chapman after both leftists had made their pitch two days earlier.
At the end of the ninth round, with the Yankees leading 3-1, Green ceded singles to Alex Verdugo and Bobby Dalbec before goal scorer Kevin Plawecki darted to the left.
Hernandez then passed by.
After Boston drew 1-1 with an unsuccessful run in the seventh inning, the Yankees scored twice in the eighth.
LeMahieu led the round with a comeback against Yankee Adam Ottavino and then took second place. Gardner walked by and Stanton passed with a left hit.
LeMahieu may have scored in the game, but Verdugo scored and never made a throw-in, as the Yankees took the lead, 2-1.
Roughned Odour put the runners through and a long self-sacrificial flight from Gleyber Torres drove in Gardner to make it 3-1.
Montgomery went through the first two innings before loading bases with two starts in the third.
Bogaerts followed with a preemptive short pass that was overtaken by Torres to end the threat and keep the game scoreless.
The Yankees took the lead in the fourth inning.
Gardner and Stanton took the lead with footwork to open the round with right-hander Tanner Houck.
After Odour finished, both runners-up advanced thanks to a pass from Christian Vazquez.
Torres followed with an assist to shorten the lead for Gardner from third to make it 1-0.
Catcher Rob Brantly moves left to end the round.
After torrential rain fell for much of the first part of the fifth season, the game was eventually halted after a double shot into Wade’s field.
After a 55-minute downpour, Houck – who had just given permission to run without permission – was replaced with a favorable Josh Taylor to face LeMahieu.
LeMahieu stepped forward to help Gardner, who refused.
Despite the lengthy delay, the Yankees sent Montgomery, who threw 60 throws, back to start the fifth half. Montgomery withdrew the team to preserve the lead.
Torres went two goals in the sixth inning and beat the second before being whistled by Brantly.
Montgomery pulled back nine goals in a row before Bogaerts’ losing single at the end of round 6 ended his night in 83 throws.
