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.
TRUMBO INSPIRES ORIOLES
Mark Trumbo hit two home runs and tallied five RBIs in the Baltimore Orioles' 9-6 win over the Texas Rangers.
Washington Nationals starter Tanner Roark surrendered just one run in seven innings on the mound in a 2-1 victory against the Cincinnati Reds.
ROSARIO PUNISHED BY PADRES
Chicago Cubs reliever Randy Rosario allowed four runs in one inning of work against the San Diego Padres, who won 10-6.
Oakland Athletics catcher Josh Phegley went 0 for three with two strikeouts in his team's 6-0 loss to the Detroit Tigers.
