Talking Points: Big day for Refsnyder

Share

STAR OF THE GAME: Brian McCann

McCann got the Yankees off to a big start with a two-run homer into the Monster Seats in the second and later added a leadoff double and a run scored in the fifth inning.

HONORABLE MENTION: Rob Refsnyder

Playing in just his second game in the big leagues, Refsnyder claimed his first hit in the seventh with a single, then smacked a two-run homer in the ninth.

GOAT OF THE GAME: Wade Miley

Miley contributed four quality starts in his five previous outings, but had a poor start, shelled for six runs on seven hits in just 5 1/3 innings.

TURNING POINT: After a run in, two singles and a double steal, the Red Sox had baserunners at second and third and one out in the sixth. But Ryan Hanigan fanned and Mookie Betts flied to right ending the threat and the Sox were staring at the tandem of Delin Betances and Andrew Miller over the final few innings.

BY THE NUMBERS: The sixth-inning double by Hanley Ramirez was just the sixth of the season for him.
