The biggest highlight of the offensive outburst came courtesy of Mookie Betts, who absolutely crushed a grand slam over the Green Monster off Yankees left-hander Chasen Shreve.
Back away from the ledge, Yankees fans.
In the past week alone, Stanton struck out 16 times which is more than Joe DiMaggio's 1941 season in which he played in 139 games. The series opener will be a battle of aces, as Chris Sale takes the mound against Luis Severino. The Red Sox are 5-0 when the opponent scores first and have won a pair of games in extra innings.
Instead of worrying about Stanton, Judge or Sanchez, fans should focus their attention on thanking Didi Gregorius for single-handedly keeping NY at.500 as he leads the team in every offensive category imaginable, provides a sure hand at shortstop and has helped them lead the AL East in scoring thus far. He also had a five-strikeout game in his Yankee Stadium debut, an 11-4 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays. The Red Sox rank fourth in the league in both team ERA at 2.69 and batting average against at.209.
One of baseball's premier power hitters has started this season - his first in NY - in an all-time slump.
Miguel Andujar was one of the earlier contributors in the game when the Yankees came out to a five-run first inning, when he singled in two runs for his second and third RBIs of the season.
However, the Yankees now sit at 5-5 after dropping three games of four to the Baltimore Orioles and have not played up to their lofty preseason expectations. First of all, the Red Sox are trying to protect Sale from suffering too much wear and tear on his arm throughout the season. "A couple good games and I can turn it around and help us win". And as that narrative begins Tuesday night, so should a clean slate for Stanton. After all, he's the 2017 NL MVP. However, two of Stanton's seven hits this season have been long balls off of lefties. The tough part is that Bogaerts was off to an excellent start to the season, slashing.368/.400/.711. The series continues Wednesday with Masahiro Tanaka and David Price on the mound and wraps up Thursday with Sonny Gray vs. Rick Porcello. After a delayed spring training, the free agent acquisition seems to be finding his timing at the plate.
But what has been Stanton's problem so far?
Stanton also has never faced relievers Matt Barnes, Heath Hembree, Brian Johnson, Bobby Poyner, Carson Smith, Hector Valazquez or Marcus Walden. The Orioles even pitched around Judge to get to Stanton over the weekend. Meanwhile, the Red Sox rallied from their own five-run deficit the same afternoon, scoring six eighth-inning runs to erase a 7-2 Rays lead and win 8-7.
Check out Katie's Yankeemetrics post for more information on the series. He needs to show that he can produce against good pitching in a tough environment.
"I really feel that he's prepared himself for this", Boone said. The Yankees lost pitcher CC Sabathia and third baseman Brandon Drury just last week, and have dealt with the loss of first baseman Greg Bird, and outfielders Jacoby Ellsbury and Clint Frazier.
