A three-run seventh-inning home run by Boston’s Adrian Gonzalez off CC Sabathia broke the game open.
Most of the action for the Yankees happened off the field, and involved designated hitter Jorge Posada. Dropped to ninth in the lineup due to his .165 batting average Posada removed himself from the lineup approximately an hour before game time.
That, of course, led to great speculation. Would Posada retire? Was he insulted and refusing to play? Was his back bothering him? Posada was scheduled to hold a post-game press conference to explain the situation.
Manager Joe Girardi was ejected in the seventh inning, another sign of the problems the Yankees had Saturday.
The big story, though, will be what Posada has to say during his post-game meeting with the media.
