Red Sox owner wants to rename Yawkey Way for racism reasons

Red Sox owner wants to rename Yawkey Way for racism reasons

St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Jose Martinez is not starting on Wednesday against the Boston Red Sox. "People in NY have never been really nice to me, but they hate me now".

Sale hasn't beaten the Yankees in three starts this year, but he has dominated against them.

It continued a great week of baseball for the Red Sox, following this lovely triple play in their previous game against the Cardinals. In fact, Pomeranz is 2-0 in three outings against NY this season with a 4.08 ERA, six walks and 19 strikeouts.

The New York Yankees were unable to gain any ground in their attempt to secure first place in the Eastern Division of the American League. Four more Yankee-Sox games are on their schedule, August 31 and September 1 through September 3, all in the Bronx. He also pitched twice against Boston in the 2013 World Series, starting and losing Game 4. The Red Sox are 11-4 over his last 15 starts per the OddsShark MLB Database.

Jackie Bradley Jr. hit an RBI single off NY starter Jordan Montgomery, and Austin Romine hit a run-scoring triple off Sale.

The Red Sox have won each of their last five series including taking two of three games in the Bronx from the Yankees last weekend. Rafael Devers had two and Andrew Benintendi one.

Boston, victor of 12 of 14, leads the division by four games over NY, which is coming off a four straight wins against the crosstown-rival Mets.

The Yankees are fresh off a crosstown set with the Mets. No more games between these two teams are scheduled.

Yawkey was accused of being a racist during his tenure as the team's owner because of how long it took the Red Sox to employ a black player (1959, making them the last team in the majors to integrate).

The walk off was Boston's ninth of the season.

These two clubs met last weekend at Yankee Stadium, with the Red Sox taking two of three from NY, including a decisive 10-5 win as +153 underdogs Saturday.

Now, the rivalry is renewed.

Eduardo Nunez had three singles for Boston, which lost for just the second time in 12 games.

"I was like, 'OK, here we go". In his 121.0 innings and 7-6 record this year, Montgomery has a 3.94 ERA with 115 Ks.

The change will no doubt spark controversy among Red Sox fans.

Aaron Judge is 0-for-7 with six strikeouts, Brett Gardner 2-for-16 (.125) and Gary Sanchez and Ronald Torreyes both 2-for-11 (.182).

The Red Sox used a triple-play and an eight-run fifth-inning to stomp the Cardinals on Tuesday.

Betts is 1-for-6 (.167).
