Im not joking when I say Brooks Kriske is having the worst relief appearance of perpetuity.

Kriske managed to toss 4 wild pitches on his very first 9 tosses, and it led to the Red Sox scoring two runs to win the video game. It is safe to say that MLB Twitter had zero regret for Kriske for his horrendous getaway.

MLB Twitter called out New York Yankees reducer Brooks Kriske after a horrendous tenth inning assisted the Boston Red Sox stroll it off.
The New York Yankees were delighting in excellent success following the MLB All-Star break, where they won four of five games entering Thursday night. They even managed to take 2 of three from their series against the Boston Red Sox. But the Yankees wanted to continue developing upon their newfound luck against the Red Sox, and it ended in disaster.
MINNEAPOLIS, MN – JUNE 9: Brooks Kriske # 82 of the New York Yankees delivers a pitch against the Minnesota Twins in the ninth inning of the video game at Target Field on June 9, 2021 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Yankees supervisor Aaron Boone chose to call upon reliever Brooks Kriske to close out the video game. Boone called upon Kriske to relieve Chad Green, who pitched in the ninth inning after he gave up a two-run double by Enrique Hernandez to send out the game into extras. With Rafael Devers starting the bottom of the tenth on 2nd, Kriske threw 2 successive wild pitches to permit the Red Sox third baseman to rating and connect it. Kriske then strolled Xander Bogaerts, just to toss 2 more wild pitches to send him to third.
I legit feel bad for Brooks Kriske. Yikes.

Boone called upon Kriske to ease Chad Green, who pitched in the ninth inning after he gave up a two-run double by Enrique Hernandez to send out the game into additionals. With Rafael Devers beginning the bottom of the tenth on 2nd, Kriske threw 2 successive wild pitches to allow the Red Sox third baseman to rating and connect it. Kriske then walked Xander Bogaerts, only to throw two more wild pitches to send him to 3rd.
After starting out J.D. Martinez, Kriske surrendered a sacrifice fly to Hunter Renfroe to permit the Red Sox to stroll it off at Fenway Park.
The Yankees will seek to bounce back with three games staying in the series. There have actually been some bad losses (i.e. that dreadful Houston Astros defeat prior to the All-Star break), however this one might have made its method to the top of the list.
That went wild pitch, wild pitch, walk, wild pitch, wildest pitch, sac fly, loss.
Not the most devastated Ive ever been by a loss, but quickly the worst visual ending possible! Goodbye to baseball!

Yankees manager Aaron Boone chose to call upon reducer Brooks Kriske to close out the video game. The issue is, Kriske carried a 10.50 ERA through seven games.
Aaron Boone legitimately sat there and thought, “Season is on the line lets go to Brooks Kriske to save us.”.
Worst manager in the world.
