"Boone’s five good relievers threw 6 2/3 innings and allowed one run. He managed his staff exactly as he should have, and on a lot of nights, he would have walked away a winner. On this night, however, the Yankees got just those two runs, and Boone was left with his innings guys. J.A. Happ eventually coughed up a solo homer to Carlos Correa to end the game. If your take from last night is that the Yankees lost 3-2 in 11 innings because of the manager, you’re wrong. Boone did a great job. His hitters just got beat."
