G143: Yankees 10, Red Sox 5

Yankees - 022 220 002 - 10 13  0
Red Sox - 002 200 010 -  5  9  3
The Yankees hit two two-run homers off Rick Porcello (4-7-6-0-1, 73) and won easily. Gleyber Torres (3-for-5, 4 RBI) went deep in the second and Tauchman homered in the fourth.

Porcello has given up 30 dongs this year, the second-most of his 11-year career. (He allowed an MLB-worst 38 in 2017.) Going back to the beginning of July, only two of Porcello's 12 starts have been dong-free.

Mookie Betts and Jackie Bradley went deep for Boston. ... Rafael Devers committed three errors.

For the second consecutive game, the Red Sox had only two plate appearances with runners at second and/or third. They went 0-for-2 on Saturday (both in the eighth inning) and 1-for-2 on Sunday (both in the fourth inning).

In this latest loss, the Red Sox put only one runner on base after the fourth inning: Betts's homer leading off the eighth.

Elsewhere: The Astros beat the Mariners 21-1. They also out-hit them 22-1.

AL Wild Card: TBR/OAK –, CLE 1.5, BOS 8.0.

Sarah Langs @SlangsOnSports:
The Red Sox and Yankees have yet to play a 1-run game against each other this season.
They've been playing each other since 1903. They've *never* had a season series that didn't feature at least one 1-run game.
They have two games left against each other this season.
AL Wild Card: TBR/OAK –, CLE 1.5, BOS 7.0.
