What began for the Red Sox as an aggressive endeavor on the bases ended with a tough call that largely shaped Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Yankees at Fenway Park. Betts, who found himself dashing toward third in the eighth inning on an attempted double steal, was called out by third-base umpire Vic Carapazza after his foot wobbled off the bag on a hard slide.
