Yankees' offense finally bursts in 14-4 win over Red Sox

By on April 13, 2015

He seemed to be on the way to getting out of it when he got Shane Victorino to hit a grounder to second. While the Yanks may not have been able to turn an inning-ending double play on the speedy Victorino, they couldn’t even turn the play into one out.

Drew fielded the grounder but slipped on his relay to second and the ball sailed wide. Didi Gregorius couldn’t snare it and Drew’s error loaded the bases. Xander Bogaerts followed by smacking a two-run double and Boston moved within 7-3.

But then Tanaka showed how good he can be, staunching the rally there by striking out Ryan Hanigan and Mookie Betts to crush the threat. The next inning, though, he gave up a homer to Ramirez on a blast to center.

The Yankees tacked on three more runs in the fourth inning on a two-run single by Brett Gardner and a sac fly by Mark Teixeira. They scored three more times in the sixth inning on a bases-loaded walk to Rodriguez, an RBI single by Headley and a sac fly by Drew.
