Yankees pitcher Jordan Montgomery Hit in Head While Signing Autographs

Todd Frazier delivered a go-ahead RBI single in the eighth inning on Friday as the Yankees rallied to beat the Red Sox. The Yankees dropped six of their last nine games to fall 4 1/2 behind the Red Sox and were shut out 4-0 on Thursday at Toronto.

Slightly over two years ago, Luis Severino made his major league debut for the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium in a game against the Boston Red Sox. Not only did Hicks hit a two-run homer that brought the Yankees to within one run in a five-run eighth inning, but he made a one-hop throw from left field to third base to double up Eduardo Nunez on a sacrifice fly in the ninth inning.

The play survived a replay challenge and Chapman recorded the final out. Just a game-changer on both sides of the ball.

Said manager Joe Girardi: "It was a pretty big loss for us".

"We know this is a good team and you're going to go through ups and downs, and when you go through those downs, you know you're going to break out of them", said Adam Warren, who pitched two and one-third innings of one-hit relief.

Indeed, the Red Sox appeared to have matters well in hand when they turned over a three-run lead to newly acquired setup man Addison Reed in the eighth inning. NY was six outs away from dropping a season-high 5 1/2 games out but Aaron Hicks sparked a five-run comeback against Addison Reed and Joe Kelly with a two-run homer and saved the game in the ninth by throwing out Eduardo Nunez at third from left field. "These are extremely important games", Girardi said. He got a slider up and "of course I was talking to the ball, " Hicks said with a laugh, trying to get it to stay fair.

Romine stepped in behind the plate last night as Gary Sanchez served as the team's designated hitter.

On the field, this stretch represents a chance for the Yanks to regain some footing, and for the Red Sox to expand their AL East lead.

With the win, Cleveland moved to 61-52 for the regular season, while they hold a three-and-a-half game lead over the Minnesota Twins in the American League Central.

That stat would be prescient for Friday's matchup against Red Sox southpaw Eduardo Rodriguez.

The lefty recently lost his rotation spot and was sent to the minors when the Yankees traded for starters Sonny Gray and Jaime Garcia.

He took a no-hitter into the seventh and ended up throwing eight scoreless innings, allowing two hits, walking two and striking out 10. His first outing in the rivalry was August 6, 2015, in NY when he allowed two runs (one earned) on two hits and struck out seven during five innings in a 2-1 loss. He still allowed seven hits, walked three and gave up a handful of loud outs, but he kept the Yankees within range with a veteran's guile, leaving the bases loaded in the third and stranding runners in scoring position in the second and the fifth.
