The Boston Red Sox faced off against their rival New York Yankees in another Spring Training game in Florida on Thursday afternoon. Boston came in still with the only undefeated Spring Training record remaining.
Both teams scored two runs in the second inning with the Red Sox scoring first when Narciso Crook knocked a two-run home run to right field in the top half of the inning. The Yankees tied the game in the bottom half when Jose Trevino hit a two-run single.
New York took a 3-2 lead in the fourth inning on a wild pitch, but the Red Sox went on to score six runs in the top of the sixth and added another run in the seventh to blow the game open, bringing it to 9-3.
By the bottom of the ninth, the score was 11-3. The Yankees scored four runs in the bottom of the ninth, but it wasn’t enough as the Red Sox came out with an 11-7 victory.
Zack Kelly earned the win for Boston, pitching two innings, not giving up any earned runs while striking out three. The Red Sox are back at it tomorrow when they take on the Toronto Blue Jays. First pitch is scheduled for 1:05 p.m. ET.
