BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — The Boston Red Sox beat the New York Yankees Sunday night with an 8-5 win. Right fielder J.D. Martinez and shortstop Xander Bogaerts homered, and the Sox snapped a four-game skid.
Red Sox pitcher David Price was solid with six-and-a-third innings, two runs, and six strikeouts.
“It was great. Good command, good mix of pitches. Gave us a chance to win. Happy for him that he came here and pitched the way he did. He’s been outstanding the whole season, so he didn’t surprise me,” Red Sox coach Alex Cora said.
This was Price’s first win for Boston at Yankee Stadium, and his first win there since 2005.
“It feels good to pitch well in a place I haven’t pitched well in a while against a team that’s given me problems,” Price said.
The Red Sox will open a three-game set in Kansas City Tuesday.
