The Curse of Jerry Hairston, Jr./Eric Hinske:

Friday, August 1, 2014 Yankees Stink

BOSTON—There were new faces on both sides as the Yankees and Red Sox renewed acquaintances on Friday evening, but the familiar old guard made its presence felt as the weekend series kicked off at Fenway Park.

Dustin Pedroia drove in a pair of runs and David Ortiz also collected an RBI as the Red Sox racked up four runs against Chris Capuano, who took the loss against his former club in Boston’s 4-3 victory.

Derek Jeter hit an eighth-inning home run over the Green Monster, connecting for his third of the year off Junichi Tazawa, but center fielder Mookie Betts made a terrific lunging stab approaching the triangle to take away an extra-base hit from Jacoby Ellsbury and likely save the lead.

Matched against a Red Sox roster that saw wholesale changes in advance of Thursday’s non-waivers Trade Deadline, the Yankees managed two runs in six innings against rookie Anthony Ranaudo, who picked up the victory in his Major League debut.

Ooh, that smell
Can’t you smell that smell?
Ooh, that smell
The smell of death surrounds you, yeah.

Seriously, the Yankees may have lost this one on the scoreboard.  But according to FIP, they won 6.71 - 2.05.
