kating in full pads and taking part in individual drills
NEW YORK -- Brian McCann will have all winter to figure out what went wrong in
his first year with the New York Yankees.
Wholesale NFL Jerseys China . In the meantime, hes trying to help them make a
late push to reach the playoffs. McCann homered among his career high-tying four
hits and the Yankees bounced back to end a three-game losing streak, beating the
Boston Red Sox 5-1 Wednesday night. "Its just good to contribute," he said.
McCann homered a day earlier as the Yankees got battered by Boston, leaving them
five games behind for the second AL wild-card spot. In the rematch with the
last-place Red Sox, he drove in three runs and gave an early cushion to
Hiroki Kuroda (10-8). McCann has mostly been a disappointment with the Yankees,
stuck in a season-long slump. A seven-time All-Star for Atlanta, he signed a
rich free-agent deal with New York but hasnt hit much, prompting manager
Joe Girardi to note before the game, "I think he expected more from himself."
"It took me longer to get going with the bat than normal," McCann agreed. "I
havent tried to dissect it." McCann went 4 for 4 after opening the game hitting
.237, 40 points below his career average. Then again, nobody has really hit much
among these longtime rivals. They began the day as the two lowest-scoring teams
in the AL, and no one in either starting lineup was batting over .285. Kuroda
gave up one run and four hits in seven innings, striking out eight without a
walk. He evened his mark at 78-78 in seven seasons for the Yankees and Dodgers.
Anthony Ranaudo (3-1) lost for the first time in his four starts since making
his big league debut. Boston kept up its weeklong pattern of alternating wins
and losses. McCann connected for his 17th homer, a two-run shot in the second.
The drive quieted Ranaudos sizable cheering section -- raised in central New
Jersey, he beat the Yankees last month in his first game. "I was a little
disappointed that we lost the game in general, that the team lost the game,"
Ranaudo said. "I wasnt really worried about my family or friends. Its great that
they were here, that they support me and everything like that, but the team is
definitely way more important." McCann got four hits for the 11th time in his
career, capped by an RBI single in the seventh. Hes homered 15 times at home
this year, and launched his latest shot to right field over the overshifted
Boston defence. Lately, hes even tried to bunt to beat the stacked right side.
"It looks like theres 12 guys out there," he said. A day after bad baserunning
dearly cost the Yankees, they tried a double steal in the first. Instead,
Derek Jeter and Brett Gardner ran right into a double play. Jeter was on second
and Gardner was on first when they took off. Catcher Christian Vazquez targeted
the trailing runner, trapping Gardner in a rundown. Second baseman Jemile Weeks
suddenly zipped a throw across the diamond that caught Jeter straying off third,
and third baseman Brock Holts toss nailed Gardner at second. The Red Sox werent
so swift around the bags, either. Daniel Nava got picked off first by Kuroda,
seeming incredibly nonchalant returning to the base. Moments earlier, Kuroda had
looked back Nava without making a throw. TRAINERS ROOM Red Sox: 2B
Dustin Pedroia missed his fourth game in a row because of concussion-like
symptoms. Manager John Farrell said Pedroia took early batting practice and
passed an online test in his recovery. Farrell said he was "optimistic" Pedroia
would play during Bostons upcoming homestand, which starts Friday night.
Yankees: INF-OF Martin Prado has temporarily been shut down because of a mild
strain of his left hamstring. He was hurt Tuesday night, and Girardi said
"hopefully its just a day or two." UP NEXT Red Sox RHP Brandon Workman (1-8,
4.93 ERA) starts the series finale Thursday night against LHP Chris Capuano
(2-3, 4.24). Capuano began the season with Boston and pitched 28 times in relief
before being released. He later played in the minors for Colorado and joined the
Yankees in late July. THREE OF A KIND Bostons 3-4-5 hitters -- David Ortiz,
Yoenis Cespedes and Nava -- all began the game batting .263. The last time three
teammates in a row had the same average this late in a season was Sept. 8, 2011,
when Kansas Citys Alex Gordon, Melky Cabrera and Billy Butler each was hitting
.300, STATS said.
