Boston Red Sox Defeat Yankees To Win Series

Yankees-Red Sox Runs

Yankees-Red Sox Runs

Ross Stripling (3-4) earned the victory with two scoreless relief innings. Craig Kimbrel pitched the ninth for his 29th save. He beat the Yankees for the first time in four decisions this season. Other reinforcements are expected to arrive soon from the disabled list - designated hitter Matt Holliday, first baseman Greg Bird and second baseman Starlin Castro. And although he had a 3.30 ERA and 230 strikeouts in 180 innings, he was only 9-10 against them and the Red Sox won only 10 of the 27 games. Shaw and Allen did not allow a baserunner.

Collin McHugh worked six shutout innings and a reconfigured bullpen closed out Houston's victory over Oakland.

On Friday night, Sale faces the Yankees for the fourth time this season, the third time at Fenway Park, as the rivals start another three-game series.

The late Tom Yawkey, who owned the Red Sox from 1933 to 1976, was the last owner in the majors to integrate his team, which since then has featured many notable African-American and Dominican players, including David Ortiz, Pedro Martinez and Jim Rice. He struck out eight and walked two. He struck out four. Kuhl (6-8) retired 11 of the 13 batters he faced after the delay, with only one hit. When Boston media personalities began questioning whether the incident took place at all, multiple current players backed Jones, with New York Yankees pitcher C.C. Sabathia saying he too had been subjected to racist taunts.

The Yankees kept working Sale, putting runners on base in each of the next three innings. He will be going for his fourth straight win.

During his senior season at East Carolina, Jones tallied a ridiculous 158 catches for 1,746 yards and eight touchdowns. He played seven seasons in Arizona before being traded to the Baltimore Ravens in 2010 where he won a Super Bowl .

Gardner's homer made it 2-1 but the Red Sox pushed it back to a two-run lead in the sixth against Adam Warren, aided by a wild pitch.

Toronto grabbed the lead with two runs in the top of the inning on Kevin Pillar's RBI single off Koji Uehara, and Norichika Aoki's bases-loaded loaded walk against Justin Wilson (4-4). The highlight of the game: Devers starting a 5-4-3 triple play. Chicago led 5-0 in the first inning before Texas mounted its biggest comeback of the year.

Rookie blasted a two-run homer, and later smoked a single off of Chapman, becoming only the eighth lefty with multiple hits off of him.

"It's a continuation of John's strong feelings about tolerance and inclusion and making sure that everyone in Boston and New England feels welcome at Fenway Park", Red Sox president Sam Kennedy told The Associated Press. It was the sixth straight slider of the at-bat, and Aguilar drove it an estimated 449 feet over the fence in center. The flamethrower only allowed two runs once in an outing last season. Austin, a 25-year-old who just returned to the lineup after sitting out six weeks because of a hamstring strain, hit a 96 miles per hour fastball out to left field to open a 3-0 lead and wipe away any hangover from the bullpen blowing a three-run lead just one night earlier. He threw 91 pitches, with 61 strikes.

In San Francisco, pinch hitter Ty Kelly had a grand slam, and Rhys Hoskins hit a three-run homer for Philadelphia. The Indians are being led by Edwin Encarnacion, who has 28 home runs with 72 RBI.
