BOSTON — It was just your typically wild Yankees-Red Sox affair at Fenway Park on Saturday afternoon.
It featured a stellar pitchers’ duel between Chris Sale and Luis Severino; a stunning game-tying solo shot by Matt Holliday off Craig Kimbrel that went over the Green Monster in the ninth inning; and the home team playing the game under protest due to a wacky play in extras.
The Yankees eventually won 4-1 in 16 innings. The marathon took 5 hours, 50 minutes. The teams combined to use 16 pitchers and throw 512 pitches.
Didi Gregorius and Austin Romine put the Bombers in front with consecutive RBI singles. Gary Sanchez added a sacrifice fly. Jacoby Ellsbury had led off the frame with a double to left, and Chase Headley followed with a single to center, setting up a three-run 16th against Doug Fister.
It was a much-needed victory for the Yankees, who had suffered a demoralizing loss on Friday night in which Aroldis Chapman blew the save and the game. The Bombers are now 3.5 games back
