Red Sox stave off sweep at Yankee Stadium

Eduardo Nunez is picked off of second base by New York’s Gleyber Torres to end a promising rally in the fifth inning on Friday the last best chance the Red Sox had to score

Eduardo Nunez is picked off of second base by New York’s Gleyber Torres to end a promising rally in the fifth inning on Friday the last best chance the Red Sox had to score

He allowed three runs on a pair of walks, a hit, and a balk, but his frustrating night didn't prevent the Sox from escaping NY with a win - and, at 30-29, a winning record. Yet whereas the Red Sox quickly gave back the leads the previous nights, Price ensured no such surrender by blitzing through three flawless innings to open the game, doing so in an economical 30 pitches.

"I love it", Ottavino said Saturday before the Yankees' 5-3 win over the Red Sox. The All-Star catcher leads the American League with 18 home runs. He took satisfaction in helping his team to a much-needed win - and to proving he could beat the Yankees in their home.

Boston is back to.500 at 29-29.

They now sit 9.5 games behind the first-place Yankees, and Jason Mastrodonato of The Boston Herald pointed out this dubious stat surrounding the team. They are now on a four-game losing streak and by virtue of last night's loss to the New York Yankees, have clinched a losing effort in three consecutive series. The Red Sox got a pair of long solo shots from J.D. Martinez and Xander Bogaerts and jumped out to a 3-0 lead on hard-luck loser CC Sabathia, who was making his return from the injured list after missing his last start to have his balky right knee drained. Manager Aaron Boone called it a double-steal after the game and declined to explain why it failled, but Hicks said he did not know Torres was stealing.

Clint Frazier misplayed a Nunez single in right, allowing Chavis to score from first and put Nunez on third.

Frazier again was put on the spot with two outs when he could not come up with a diving catch on a knock from Andrew Benintendi, allowing Holt to score to make it 6-2.

NY was down 3-2 in the seventh when right fielder Clint Frazier let Eduardo Nunez's sharp single get past him for an error, allowing Michael Chavis to score from first base.

Six Yankee relievers combined to allow just four hits and no runs over 5.1 innings while striking out six and walking only two. Though Price's night ended with one out in the seventh following a pair of singles, the pitcher continued his artful season on the mound. The lefty went six innings for just the second time this year. He struck out a season-high eight batters and allowed three runs on seven hits to fall to 3-2.

Luke Voit homered for the Yankees, who lost for only the fourth time in 19 games. Three consecutive singles then loaded the bases and a Gio Urshela sac fly made it 3-2.

Brandon Workman tossed a scoreless ninth for his second career save, both in the past two weeks.

The Yankees scored three times in the eighth, loading the bases with no outs before a Matt Barnes balk scored LeMahieu.

Next up: The Yankees are off Monday. Instead, after Brock Holt threw to Michael Chavis, the first baseman threw home to set in motion a 2-4-3-2-5-1 rundown that concluded with Price tagging out Hicks at the plate. Eastern. Right-hander Masahiro Tanaka (3-4, 3.20) is expected to start for the Yankees. The Blue Jays will counter with left-hander Clayton Richard (0-1, 3.38).
