Yankees 1998 Tracker: Game 107





From now until the end of the season, we will be tracking the progress of the Yankees with their 1998 World Championship team, which won 114 games in the regular season.

Through 107 Games:


2018: 68-39
Thursday night: Boston 15, Yankees 7

Steve Pearce led the way for the Red Sox, as he hit three home runs, a solo shot in the third, followed by a three-run bomb in the fourth, and a two-run homer in the sixth.
The Yankees jumped out to a 4-0 lead early in this one, as Didi Gregorius hit a three-run homer in the first, followed by a solo shot from Aaron Hicks in the second.
Boston got a run in the bottom of the second, followed by the Pearce solo homer in the third, and then eight in the fourth to make it 10-4 and basically put the game away.
Yankees starter CC Sabathia did not have it, as he lasted just 3 innings, and allowed 2 tuns on 3 hits and 4 walks, with two strikeouts, on 77 pitches (45 strikes). He worked out of trouble all night, including a bases-loaded jam in the second.
Jonathan Holder relieved him in the fourth, and allowed 7 runs on 5 hits and a walk, and did not record an out.

1998: 79-28
August 4, 1998: Yankees 10, Oakland 4 

In the first game of a doubleheader, Chuck Knoblauch led off the game with a homer, and Oakland got three in the second on an Ed Sprague two-run homer, followed by a run coming in on a Mike MacFarlane fielder's choice.
The Yankees responded with four in the third, on a Bernie Williams RBI single, a Chad Curtis two-run single, and Tino Martinez scoring on a wild pitch.
Darryl Strawberry hit a two-run homer to make it 7-3 in the fifth, and after Ben Grieve got an RBI single for Oakland in the seventh, the Yankees tacked on three in the ninth on a Williams RBI single, followed by a two-run single for Tim Raines.
Ramiro Mendoza earned the win, improving to 7-2, as he went 6 1/3 in a spot start, allowing 4 runs (2 earned) on 7 hits and 2 walks, with a strikeout.
Mike Stanton closed it out to earn his sixth save, as he went 2 2/3 innings, and didn't allow a hit or walk, while striking out three.

Where they stand: The 2018 Yankees (68-39) have now fallen 11 games off the pace of the 1998 team, which was 79-28 through 107 games.
