Greenfield: Red Sox bullpen gives up 3 runs, no hits, 3-0 win over Yankees
Red Sox reliever Matt Barnes was charged with the seventh-inning single, giving up three runs on four hits and no walks and giving up a home run to catcher Jacoby Ellsbury, who was hit by a pitch on the play.
Boston lost 3-1.
Red Sox outfielder Mark Trumbo, who hit two homers and drove in three runs in the Red Sox’s 5-4 win over the Yankees on Wednesday, also was charged.
He was also hit by two pitches and allowed one hit.
“We didn’t get into any trouble,” Red Sox manager John Farrell said.
“But we did get into trouble.
We were very sloppy tonight.”
The Sox were unable to get past left fielder Aaron Judge for the third time this season, hitting just .200 with four homers and six RBIs.
Boston starter Jake Peavy allowed three runs and five hits in five innings.
Ellsberry, who is on the disabled list with a strained right hamstring, allowed four runs on six hits and three walks in three innings.
The Yankees have lost four straight and 12 of 15.
Boston went ahead 2-0 in the third inning after Peavy walked Ryan Braun to load the bases with two outs.
Ellsonbury was hit hard by a fastball and was immediately tagged out, but his throw sailed in for a single.
Ellsenbury was charged for two of the three runs.
The second batter was hit at first base by a Dustin Pedroia pitch and was thrown out.
Ellsy scored on a wild pitch.
The third batter was singled to center field and was caught stealing.
The inning was tied at 1.
Ellsiy walked, then singled to left field and scored on his second steal of the game, a leadoff homer.
The sixth batter, third baseman Brian McCann, scored on another wild pitch and Ellsly followed with a single to right.
“I was pretty happy with the way we pitched,” Farrell said, “but the bullpen gave up three hits and they did some good things, and that’s what counts.”
Ellsburys first homer came on a solo shot off Pedroia in the first inning.
He then added two more in the second and third.
Ellsdough was able to score on a groundout in the fourth, and it gave the Sox a 3-2 lead.
Ellsfries last hit came in the fifth when he singled.
Ellseries last hit was a sacrifice fly in the sixth, giving Boston a 6-1 lead.
Red Bats outfielder Jason Heyward was hit on the left leg by a ball and took a few steps back, and Boston went on to lose 7-2.
Boston’s next game is Sunday at Pittsburgh.
