The Yankees score seven runs and lose

by Bill Chuck on July 22, 2013

It took until 12:53 this morning, but the Yankees finally gave their eighth run of the game, this one on a Mike Napoli walkoff homer in the 11th inning to give the Red Sox an 8-7 victory.

Beyond the pain of a 4-hour, 46-minute loss, the Yankees ending up dropping two-of-three at Fenway and lost their first game of the season when scoring at least seven runs.

The Yankees have scored seven runs 17 times now this season, tied with the Padres, Phillies and Cubs for the the 17th most in the majors. The Red Sox lead all major league clubs with 32 games of at least seven runs scored. The Bostons only had 40 such games all last season; the Yankees last season were 31-5.
