Yankees comeback, then blow lead in a real tough loss to the Red Sox, 9-8

Despite scoring six times in the seventh inning alone to take an 8-7 lead, the Yankees lost last night's series opener to the Red Sox in heartbreaking, 10-inning fashion, 9-8. The Bombers starter in this one, Ivan Nova, really was bad. He threw a ton of pitches, 96 to be exact, while lasting just four innings and giving up three earned runs. His successor, Preston Claiborne, wasn't any better, as he also gave up three earned runs without even getting an out. It's no secret to anyone, that had Claiborne pitched semi-well in his inning, this game would've been won. But I guess fate just didn't like the Pinstripes on this night. 

The Yankees 8 runs in this one came on a two-run double from Cano, an RBI Single from Gardner, an RBI Groundout from Cano, an RBI Single from Soriano, an RBI Single from Granderson, and a two-sun single from Overbay. This loss was heartbreaking, and one that really stings.
