Former top Red Sox prospect Yoan Moncada—who went to Chicago in the Chris Sale trade—helped his new club beat-up on The Bronx Embalmers last night, 6-2. Moncada had a key two-run double in the contest, which marked the fourth straight win for The Other Color Hosiery. Chicago fell behind 2-0, then surged into the lead for good with a three-run sixth—which featured the Moncada double. Masahiro Tanaka went seven innings for The Pinstriped Posers, but ended up yielding four earned runs. Giancarlo Stanton went 0-4 with two strikeouts. The Yankee loss pushed Boston lead in the American League East to 6.5 games. After a ridiculous two-game homestand against the Marlins, the Red Sox head back out on the road Friday to face these same White Sox.
