"Embarrassing"; "DFA Trevino and Gleyber" - Yankees fans disheartened after team's series loss against Red Sox

MLB: New York Yankees at Toronto Blue Jays
Jose Trevino and Gleyber Torres missed opportunities in seventh to leave Yankees fans disheartened.

After winning the series opener, the Yankees have dropped back-to-back games against their nemesis, the Boston Red Sox. On Sunday at Fenway Park, the Yankees ran low on runs and good pitches, resulting in a 9-3 loss.

The Red Sox improved to 37-35 with the win, while the Yankees dropped to 50-24.

This loss left the Yankees faithful disheartened, as many fans took a dig at several players who performed below par.

"A bunch of embarrassing frauds whenever you guys play in the spotlight and against good teams. Losers," one fan commented.
"Embarrassing," another added.
"DFA Trevino and Gleyber," another posted.

Some fans accepted the defeat but still mocked the Yankees for their performance.

"The Yankees still have one of the best records in the league. Sometimes you lose a series to a team you should beat, it happens. Either way, that was still a truly pathetic performance all around the last 2 days & there are frankly some concerning holes on this roster," one wrote.
"We have the best record in Baseball, but we really gotta get it together," another added.
"You win some, and you lose some. This was one we should have won. Can't take this type of performance to the postseason," another wrote.

Red Sox stun Yankees and register a club record in stolen bases

Both the Red Sox and the Yankees were neck-to-neck, heading into the seventh inning, with the Red Sox leading 4-3. However, two things happened in the seventh that left the Yankees lagging.

First, Red Sox's Zack Kelly escaped a bases-loaded, no-out situation without surrendering a single run. Kelly struck out Gleyber Torres and Jose Trevino before retiring DJ LeMahieu on a lineout to end the inning unscathed. Alex Verdugo, Giancarlo Stanton, and Anthony Rizzo ended up on bases with no one reaching home.

Meanwhile, in the other half of the inning, Caleb Ferguson gave up a flurry of hits and a walk, with Rafael Davers hitting an RBI single and Connor Wong driving in two more with his triple to put the Red Sox in command with a 7-3 lead.

Baserunning was one of the key contributors to the Red Sox's win, as the runners set a club record after stealing nine bases. David Hamilton stole four, while Jarren Duran stole two. Dominic Smith, Bobby Dalbec, and Ceddane Rafaela stole one base each.

“They were able to get on base and then once they were able to get on base, they were able to get into scoring position,” Aaron Judge said of Boston's base stealing. “They capitalized when they got guys in scoring position. They were able to do it all night.” [via ESPN].

Up next, the Yankees will host the Baltimore Orioles for a three-game series. The Orioles have a chance to overtake the division leaders if they win the series.
