Sabathia shuts down Red Sox, Lester struggles, Sox fall 4-1

With the Yankees coming in losers of five straight, their ace CC Sabathia took to the mound and delivered an ace like performance limiting the Red Sox to six hits and one run over  7 2/3 innings in the Yankees’ 4-1 win over the Red Sox at Yankee Stadium Friday night.

The Yankees scored all their runs off of starter Jon Lester who didn’t have his best stuff once again. Lester allowed four runs on six hits over 6 1/3 innings while walking four in suffering his second loss this season. The Yankees scored two runs in the second, and then one in both the fifth and seventh innings to account for their four runs. Andrew Miller and Clayton Mortensen pitched 1 2/3 scoreless innings of relief in the loss.

Offensively the Red Sox were led by Dustin Pedroia who finished with three hits, but finished with only eight as a team. They threatened in the ninth against Mariano Rivera with the tying run at the plate twice in Mike Napoli and Stephen Drew, but both were retired. Filling in for Jacoby Ellsbury in the lead off spot, Daniel Nava went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts and grounded into a double play.

The teams will continue their weekend series tomorrow night (7:15, FOX) with Felix Doubront getting the call for the Sox and Phil Hughes for the Yankees.

What they’ll be saying: Lester didn’t have it from the start, beginning with a lead off walk and never really had his stuff at any point in the game. This is the third straight poor outing for Lester as he has a 6.05 ERA in those starts and is winless. He will need to get things back on track quickly as he and Clay Buchholz are the keys to the rotation … A number of players are struggling at the plate including Drew, who over his last 13 games is hitting just .140. The Sox finished 1-for-8 with runners in scoring position.
