Sox Summary: Sox blow lead, suffer 10-inning loss in Yankee series finale

Posted by Joshua Kummins on September 27, 2010

THE BRONX, New York (Sunday, September 26, 2010) – Jonathan Papelbon blew his eighth save 0f the season and Hideki Okajima walked Juan Miranda with the bases loaded in the tenth inning as the Red Sox fell to the Yankees, 4-3 in 10 innings on Sunday night at Yankee Stadium. The Sox had taken the first two games of the season, but the Yankees clinched no worse than the wild card with the win.

The Red Sox took a 1-0 lead in the third inning as Victor Martinez hit a two-out single to right field for the game’s first run.

All was quiet until the bottom of the seventh when Alex Rodriguez hit a two-run home run to right-center field to give New York a 2-1 lead on one swing of the bat.

In the ninth, Bill Hall singled to right field and was driven in on a sacrifice fly by Mike Lowell to give Boston the lead, but Robinson Cano singled home the tying run in the bottom of the frame with one out.

Hideki Okajima came in and loaded the bases only to clear them as Juan Miranda drove in the winning run on a walk in the tenth inning. He allowed two hits and that run as he suffered his fourth loss of the season, after Daisuke Matsuzaka threw eight four-hit innings and Jonathan Papelbon blew the save.

Phil Hughes allowed three hits and a run over six innings, while Boone Logan earned his second win of the season.

The Red Sox look to get back on track Monday night as they open a four-game series at Chicago. Monday’s first pitch is at 8:10 as Clay Buchholz faces Mark Buehrle.
