Game 5 : Less than 12 hours since the final out of last night’s 19-inning, 6 hours and 49 minutes marathon was recorded, the Yankees and Red Sox clashed again before a crowd of 46,000 plus at The Stadium.
It looked like Boston got just enough sleep, while New York seemed to go through the motions with lifeless at-bats and terrible play in the field. Three errors were charged to the Yanks, but it should have been five. Combine that with no plan at the plate against Sox starter Joe (yet another Yankee Killer) Kelly, and it was a brutal affair to witness.
Game 5 Notes
Joe looks like he wants to jam a rusty screwdriver into one of his eye sockets. Who can blame him? I almost did it tonight. Here’s the box score.
