After the Red Sox lost 9-2 on the first leg of a doubleheader against the Yankees Saturday, Boston held a players-only meeting in an effort to fix their six-game slide.
Chris Sale confirmed to Ian Browne after the clubhouse re-opened to reporters that the message of the meeting was to start a clean slate during the second half of the doubleheader. Sale also mentioned how the team has to stop dwelling on what has already happened and to focus on what's ahead.
Mookie Betts didn't reveal too much about the meeting, telling Chris Cotillo the meeting was a "group decision" for players "Just to talk. Nothing in particular. Just to get us back on track."
