Pedro Martinez has put himself back in the Yankees-Red Sox rivalry.
The former Boston ace called out the Yankees on Tuesday night as they slogged to a 2-1, 12-inning win over the Marlins.
“The Yankees don’t seem to have the energy of a winning team,” Martinez, now an analyst for TBS and MLB Network, tweeted.
“I understand some key players are injured, but they don’t seem to be hustling out there.”
The Yankees’ win came at a price as Aroldis Chapman had to leave the game after one batter, citing a “worrisome” pain in a knee that has been an issue for weeks. Martinez, though, insisted that the Yankees’ problems go beyond their injuries that include Aaron Judge, Gary Sanchez and Didi Gregorius.
“When you see a team that goes out there with energy, you see they carry momentum, they hustle, and they’re happy to be out there competing,” Martinez wrote.
The Yankees are eight games behind the Red Sox in the AL East, but hold a firm grasp on a wild-card spot.
