June 8th In Red Sox Vs. Yankees History

We're 6-2 all-time against the Yanks on June 8th games. 4-1 in The Bronx, where we'll be tonight. (Should be around 90 degrees at game time!) Here are all the results, but I'll only give you extra stuff for some of them, since I know you're busy "working."

6/8/1935 vs. NY 12-6 L

6/8/1935 vs. NY 4-2 W

6/8/1944 at NY 8-7 W (Roy Partee's homer through the near-darkness wins it for the Red Sox in the bottom of the ninth, after New York had earlier erased a five-run deficit. This was billed as a "twilight" game--a 6 p.m. start in the days before Fenway had lights. Sunset was 8:19 and the game lasted two hours and five minutes.)

6/8/1945 at NY 6-4 W

6/8/1982 vs. NY 4-3 W (We come back to tie the game three separate times, including a run off the Goose in the eighth. Then Carney Lansford hits a walk-off single in the 10th. In NESN employee news, Remy went 1-4, Rice went 2-4, and Eckersley allowed 3 runs in 7 innings.)

6/8/1988 at NY 4-3 W

6/8/1989 at NY 8-7 L (The Sox out-hit the Yanks 16-14 but lost 8-7 in 11 innings. In the first six innings, the teams combined for 5 dongs, all solo shots, but Boston found themselves down 7-2. They got 2 back in the 7th, then had to face Rags in the 9th. With two out, Kevin Romine, father of current Yankee prospect Austin Romine, singled in a run. Then Randy Kutcher, pinch-hitting for Gedman, doubled home two to tie it. We nicknamed Kutcher and Romine Batman and Robin for some reason, probably having to do with that Prince-centric Batman movie coming out that summer. "Vicky Vail...Vicky Vail." The Sox loaded the bases with nobody out in the 10th, but couldn't score. In the bottom of the 11th, Steve Sax singled in Don "Sluggo" Slaught off of Big Foot to win it for the Yanks.)

6/8/2006 at NY 9-3 W (Ah, a game from the "my blog" era. I had several posts about this one--I was living in NYC at the time but didn't go to this series--which you can sift through here. Relive five years ago!)
