Things were going OK for the Boston Red Sox in their series opener Tuesday night against the New York Yankees. Then it all fell apart.
The Sox imploded in the seventh inning, allowing nine runs on six hits and one error in the frame to spoil Henry Owens’ major league debut in an eventual 13-3 loss.
That error was charged to shortstop Xander Bogaerts, whose errant throw to first base allowed Jacoby Ellsbury to reach first base to start the inning. It all unraveled from there, and while Bogaerts certainly wasn’t responsible for the entire inning, he nonetheless expressed his disappointment with the play after the game.
Hear what Bogaerts had to say about the error in the “Red Sox Final” video above.
