Although he didn’t exhibit the same level of dominance as his previous start against the Dodgers, where he allowed only one earned run in 6.2 innings, the Red Sox were able to make solid contact against him.

In a tense showdown, the left-handed pitcher succumbed to Masataka Yoshida after a grueling 14-pitch battle, resulting in a two-out walk. He then proceeded to walk Justin Turner, intensifying the situation on the field. This prompted a crucial encounter with the Yankees’ nemesis, Rafael Devers, and a visit to the mound from bullpen coach Mike Harkey. It’s worth noting that pitching coach Matt Blake is currently absent from the team due to personal reasons following the passing of his mother-in-law.

Showing strength, Peralta gathered his focus and coerced Devers into a ground out, despite the fact that Devers had already hit a home run earlier in the game and came close to hitting another.

With his initial pitch in the eighth inning, Kahnle accidentally hit Adam Duvall but swiftly prevented him from advancing to second base. As for Holmes, who has been exceptional in his last 17 games with only one run surrendered, he encountered a situation where the tying run was within reach.
