Boston Red Sox

BOSTON – The Red Sox pitching staff couldn’t keep the Yankees in the yard again on Saturday.

Of course, not many teams have kept the Yankees in check offensively this year.

New York picked up an 8-5 win over the Red Sox at Fenway Park and set a new Major League record for most home runs by a team in a single season.

The Yankees have hit 266 dingers in 2018, surpassing the Seattle Mariners, who hit 264 in 1997.

Giancarlo Stanton went deep as part of a 3-for-4 day. The slugger now has 38 home runs this year.

Gleyber Torres also homered for New York.

Brock Holt hit a two-run homer in the ninth inning, his seventh of the season.

Andrew Benintendi, Jackie Bradley Jr, and Blake Swihart also drove in runs for the Red Sox.

Nathan Eovaldi got the start for Boston and allowed one run over two innings of work.

Eduardo Rodriguez then came on in relief and struggled, allowing three runs over two innings pitched.

The Yankees tagged Brandon Workman for three earned runs in his lone inning of work, an outing that could hurt Workman’s chances to make the postseason roster. The righty figures to be one of a number of options for the final two bullpen spots for the upcoming ALDS.

Steven Wright gave up two hits, including a solo home run to Stanton.

Saturday’s win was the 100th of the season for the Yankees. 2018 marks the first time in history that the Red Sox and Yankees have both won 100 games in the same year.

The Sox and Yankees will play the final game of the regular season on Sunday. Rick Porcello is expected to throw two or three innings in his final start before the postseason.
