Yanks Painful Season Comes To A Close

Bryan Hoch/MLB.Com:

Jonathan Van Every's RBI single cashed in Alex Cora's leadoff triple, lifting the Red Sox to a 4-3 victory over the Yankees in 10 innings at Fenway Park on Sunday to complete a day-night doubleheader on the season's final day.

Facing Jose Veras, Cora tripled past a diving Melky Cabrera in right-center field to open the 10th, and Van Every's hit to right brought in the winning run after the bases were intentionally loaded around two strikeouts, as he was mobbed at first base by his teammates.

The Yankees finished their season-ending road trip with four wins in six games, completing the season 16 games above .500 at 89-73, good for third place in the American League East.

New York will return home to clean out its Yankee Stadium lockers on Monday, having missed the postseason for the first time since the strike-shortened 1994 campaign.
