Yankees to Protest the Sox Win on Tuesday
NEW YORK (AP) – The New York Yankees say they are set to file
their protest of Tuesday night's loss to the Boston Red Sox before
the deadline passes.
General manager Brian Cashman confirmed Wednesday that the
Yankees were ready to submit their official protest to the
commissioner's office, he just wasn't sure if the paperwork had
been sent in yet.
The team has 24 hours from the final out of Tuesday night's game
to do so. Boston wrapped up a 7-6 victory at Yankee Stadium early
Wednesday, about 13 minutes after midnight.
New York claimed there was no indication of an injury to Red Sox
starter Josh Beckett before he came out in the fifth inning. Still,
reliever Manny Delcarmen was given all the time he needed to warm
up on a damp and chilly night.
