Red Sox complete sweep of Yankees with extra-inning walk-off win

6 agosto 2018 07:43

The Boston Red Sox celebrated a four-game sweep of rivals the New York Yankees in a dramatic 5-4 walk-off win in MLB on Sunday.

New York almost avoid a sweep but everything fell apart in the ninth inning at Fenway Park.

The Yankees scored four runs in the seventh and held a three-run lead heading into the ninth inning. However, the Red Sox plated three runs in that frame and scored again in the 10th to enjoy a walk-off victory.

Boston started their rally in the ninth when Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman issued back-to-back, one-out walks.

After registering a strikeout, Chapman walked the bases loaded before J.D. Martinez followed with a two RBI single to cut the Red Sox deficit to one.

Boston tied the score on a throwing error by Yankees third baseman Miguel Andujar.

Andrew Benintendi then secured the Red Sox victory with a walk-off, two-out single an inning later.

Red Sox starter David Price had a solid outing, giving up only two earned runs in six innings on the mound.

The Red Sox comeback finished a worst-case scenario for the Yankees over the weekend.

Entering the series with a chance to make up ground on their rivals, the Yankees instead are now nine-and-a-half games behind the first-place Red Sox in the American League East.



Mark Trumbo hit two home runs and tallied five RBIs in the Baltimore Orioles' 9-6 win over the Texas Rangers.
