The Yankees completed a sweep of their 3-game series against the Red Sox with an 8-5 win on Sunday night at Fenway Park.

The Red Sox offensive woes continued until the 6th inning. They didn't have a base runner until the bottom of the 4th inning when Mookie Betts led off with a double to left.

Boston rallied for 5 runs in the bottom of the 6th. David Ortiz doubled home Dustin Pedroia to start the scoring. Hanley Ramirez was plunked by an Adam Warren pitch, Pablo Sandoval singled and Mike Napoli (pictured) crushed his 2nd home run of the year into the Monster Seats to score 3.

Boston loaded the bases in the 9th off Andrew Miller but Ortiz flied out to end the game.

The Yankees scored in the top of the first when Mark Teixeira slammed a 2-run home run into the Monster Seats off Red Sox starter Joe Kelly. New York added 3 more runs in the top of the 3rd on back-to-back doubles by Brian McCann and Carlos Beltran.

Brett Gardner capped the New York scoring with a 3-run home run off Boston reliever Craig Breslow.

Boston starter Joe Kelly only went 4.2 innings, charged with 5 runs on 9 hits. He didn't walk anyone and struck out 3.
