Yankees manager Aaron Boone slipped through Fenway Park’s visiting clubhouse and disappeared into his office with a plate of food for some solitude, his mind set and focused on one thing — tomorrow.
“I’m a broken record,” Boone said. “Tomorrow is always really important.”
But with the Yanks at risk of being swept in this four-game series by the Red Sox, a win on Sunday is especially crucial. The Yankees’ offense was shut down once again Saturday, as they fell to the Sox, 4-1, at Fenway Park.
The loss stretched the Yankees’ losing streak to four games, their longest of the season, as they have dropped three straight to the Red Sox to fall 8 1/2 games behind their rivals in the American League East standings.
