G90: Yankees, 3, Red Sox 1

Red Sox - 100 000 000 - 1  3  1
Yankees - 000 300 00x - 3 11  1 
I guess the Yankees have turned their season around lol.

Dustin Pedroia homered to left in the first inning - and that was pretty much the extent of Boston's firepower. The Red Sox collected two more hits and three walks. They had only three runners on base after the second inning.
1st - Pedroia homered with 1 out.
2nd - Travis Shaw walked with 2 outs. Sandy Leon singled with 2 outs.
5th - Brock Holt doubled with 2 outs.
8th - Bryce Brentz walked with 1 out.
9th - David Ortiz walked with 1 out.
Boston had the middle of the lineup up in the ninth against Aroldis Chapman. Ortiz drew his walk after Xander Bogaerts had lined to right. Hanley Ramirez grounded into a game-ending double play.

Price: 5.2-11-3-1-1, 106.

The Red Sox have won six consecutive games and Yankees manager Joe Girardi says tonight's game a must-win for his team, now 9.5 GB in the AL East:
It's got to turn around [Sunday]. This is probably as important a game that we've had in July in a long time.... No, I'm not discouraged.
