BOSTON -- After dropping two of three games to the middling New York Yankees, the Boston Red Sox can ill afford a sub-par weekend against the bottom dwelling Arizona Diamondbacks.
Boston held on for a 5-3 win in the series opener against its archival, but was blown out by New York 9-4 on Wednesday and fell victim to the yankees' come-from-behind, 4-2 win Thursday.
Despite recording nine this in the series finale, the Red Sox could only muster runs on an RBI single and an RBI double from Hanley Ramirez, and they left nine runners on base.
