Of course these are just the regular season games.

The only player with 10 or more total bases in a Yankees-Red Sox playoff game was Hideki Matsui who had 13 in the explosion before the implosion in'04.

The only starter to ever post a game score over 70 in a Yankees-Red Sox playoff game was Pedro's 83 in game 3 of the 1999 AlCS.

One Response to “Yankees-Red Sox”

  1. Clemens had a chance to be on both the NY vs Bos and Bos vs NY lists for game score, but his best outing as a Yankee versus the Red Sox had a game score of 82.
