Red Sox rally for 10-inning victory, sweep of Yankees

The Sox' lead over the Yanks in the American League East is now up to 9 1/2 games after the sweep.

"I'm not paying attention to the amount of pitches that I have", Chapman said through an interpreter, downplaying his high pitch count as a reason for his struggles.

"This is a weekend we'll look back on and hopefully be able to say, 'This is one that brought us together and allowed us to really grow even more as a club, '" Boone said. The Yankees were on the verge of avoiding the sweep on Sunday Night, until they blew a three-run lead in the ninth-inning and lost 5-4 in extra innings.

These Yankees were built with beating the Red Sox in mind, not holding on desperately to a wild-card spot.

A's 1, Tigers 0 (13 innings): Ramon Laureano's first major league hit, a 13th-inning single that one-hopped the fence in right field, drove in Nick Martini with the only run of the game, as Oakland outlasted visiting Detroit in one of the season's best pitching duels. How do you come back from a 15-7 loss especially when it's the first game of a four game set against your rival?

Phillies starter Aaron Nola gave up two runs, seven hits and two walks while striking out two in six-plus innings.

Two runs scored on Martinez's single.

Xander Bogaerts then hit a ball to Miguel Andujar's backhand.

The Yankees will surely need Kahnle's help as their bullpen is gassed right now. Gallo hit a scorching liner into the right field seats right after Adrian Beltre started the fourth by reaching on a throwing error by third baseman Renato Nunez.

Sparked by a two-run shot by Pearce (the first of his three homers) in the third to cut the lead to 4-2, the veteran first baseman gave the team the lead with the three-run blast the next inning. We are three games down in the four-game Red Sox series in Fenway and who knows what awaits us tonight as we face off in the ESPN game.

Kevin Gausman will make his debut for the Atlanta Braves, who acquired him in a trade with the Baltimore Orioles just ahead of the non-waiver trade deadline.

Manager Aaron Boone said Happ is no longer contagious.

NY does not meet Boston again until September 18. A fan who brought a broom to the game - apparently to cheer the Red Sox on to a series sweep - used it to retrieve the ball from light stanchion. With 52 games remaining that will give NY plenty of opportunities to beat up on some weaker opponents, even though it has a tendency to play down to lesser teams. They won neither game nor the two in between.

Of the 30 Major League Baseball franchises, the Yankees have the second-easiest remaining schedule as their opponents average a measly.465 winning percentage. "That said, I think if you walk through our room out there, to a man, we know we can absolutely play with them, we know when we're at our best we can beat them".

"It's time for me to kind of go back to that drawing board and kind of reinvent myself against these guys", Price said after getting hammered July 1 at Yankee Stadium.
