Rafael Devers homered in the ninth off Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman and Andrew Benintendi drove in the go ahead run in the tenth with a single as the Red Sox came from behind in a 3-2 win Sunday night at Yankee Stadium.

The win was Boston's tenth in their last eleven games and pushed their lead to 5.5 games over New York in the American League East.

The Red Sox managed just four hits but three of them drove in runs - a run-scoring single by Jackie Bradley Jr. in the fifth, and the late-inning antics of Devers (pictured) and Benintendi.

Chris Sale started for the Red Sox and went seven innings in the no-decision outing. He scattered four hits and walked two while striking out twelve. He allowed a run in the bottom of the fifth inning that tied the game at one.

Craig Kimbrel was the winner with 1.1 innings in relief.

New York took a 2-1 lead in the eighth on a sacrifice fly by Todd Frazier off Matt Barnes, setting the stage for Devers' remarkable blast.

It was the fourth home run of the year for Devers and the first by a lefty hitter off Chapman this season. The Yankees bullpen has now blown twenty saves this season.

Benintendi owned the weekend - three home runs, nine RBI's, and the game-winner last night.
