Red Sox Take Charge of AL East, Expose Yankees in Sweep

Red Sox Take Charge of AL East, Expose Yankees in Sweep”

Aaron Hicks #31 of the New York Yankees looks on in the tenth inning of a game against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park on August 6, 2018 in Boston, Massachusetts.

With the Sox busting out the brooms against their rival, Boston grew its lead in the American League East to 9 1/2 games.

Before the dramatic rally lifted the Red Sox to their sixth four-game sweep of the Yankees at Fenway and fourth since divisional play began in 1969, the Yankees scored four times in the seventh. Red Sox reliever Heath Hembree allowed four runners to score, two of which were inherited from Price. Third baseman Miguel Andujar then bounced a throw to first on Xander Bogaerts' grounder, with pinch-runner Jackie Bradley Jr. racing home with the tying run. Ryan Brasier had to come in to stop the bleeding and get the final two outs. After walking three batters and striking out the other two, Chapman yielded a single up the middle to J.D. Martinez that cut the Yankees' lead to 4-3.

After Sandy Leon singled off Jonathan Holder (1-3) and took second on a wild pitch, the Yankees intentionally walked Mookie Betts.

Red Sox: LHP Drew Pomeranz (1-5, 6.56) is slated to start the opener of a nine-game road trip Tuesday in Toronto. He's now batting.293 with six home runs, 27 RBIs, and an.849 OPS in 39 career games against NY.

The Yankees are stuck in a season-high five-game losing streak.

Benintendi's RBI single with two outs in the 10th capped Boston's rally from three runs down in the ninth against NY closer Aroldis Chapman, and the Red Sox completed a four-game sweep with a 5-4 victory Sunday night.

This is the second Red Sox game that Belichick's made it to this season, the first time being back in June as part of a team-bonding trip. Bogaerts didn't handle a high hop, and the ball went into shallow center field as Brett Gardner and Austin Romine scored to put NY ahead 2-1.
