Oh man, can life get any sweeter than it is right now for New York Yankees fans? The Boston Red Sox lost 1-0 to the Cleveland Indians Thursday afternoon and dropped its sixth consecutive game to start the season. The Red Sox are now 0-6 entering a three-game series with the Yankees, which starts on Friday afternoon (2:05 p.m.).â†µ
The Indians used a one-out suicide squeeze to score the games lone run in the bottom of the eighth inning, and Boston's Darnell McDonald made the final out by over running second base and being tagged out by Cleveland's second baseman Orlando Cabrera. Cabrera received the throw from Indians' third baseman Adam Everett, who fielded a deflected hard-hit grounder from the bat of JD Drew that hit Cleveland's closer Chris Perez.
So, not that a Yankees-Red Sox series needs to be amped up anymore than it already is. The fact that New York has a chance to possibly spoil its rival's Home Opener and extended Boston's losing streak to seven, and maybe nine, is very interesting!
