The Red Sox sweep the Yankees to make the season total for the MLB’s most famous rivalry eight wins to one loss.
Game 1: Red Sox Win 8-3
The Red Sox came out the gate this game ready to play. By the bottom of the second, the Sox were up seven to nothing, mostly thanks to the efforts of Masataka Yoshida, who had four RBI from a three-run homer and another hit.
Brayan Bello also pitched a great game, going six innings and only giving up one run. The Sox gave three runs in the last two innings, but it was not enough to overcome the deficit.
Game 2: Red Sox win 8-1
The Sox once again came out the gate swinging, scoring four runs in the second off a grand slam by Luis Urias, his second in two starts. Kutter Crawford also pitched a gem, going six innings and only giving up a solo homer to Aaron Judge.
The Sox laid the runs on this game and won 8-1, securing the series win.
Game 3: Red Sox win 6-5
This game was the most intense of them all, with it going back and forth all game. The Sox took the lead with a solo homer by Rafael Devers, and the Yankees answered back with one by Kyle Higashioka. The Sox scored again, and then the Yankees did as well.
Then, Justin Turner hit a three-run bomb to make the game 5-2 in the top of the seventh. However, the Yankees once again answered with their own three-run bomb by Anthony Volpe.
Finally, in the top of the ninth Turner hit a double to score Pablo Reyes, giving the Sox a 6-5 lead. The Yankees managed to rally in the bottom of the ninth with a close call at the plate, and thought they tied the game. However, upon review, it was decided the runner was out. This cost them the game and allowed the Red Sox to sweep the series.
The Sox go on to face the Astros in Houston for a four game series on August 21.
