The Red Sox could manage only one run in support of David Price as they fell to the Yankees 3-1 in their series finale Sunday night in the Bronx.

The loss snapped a six-game Boston winning streak and prevented the Red Sox from gaining ground on first-place Baltimore in the American League East.

Dustin Pedroia (pictured) supplied the lone Red Sox run with a solo home run in the top of the first inning off Yankees starting pitcher Masahiro Tanaka who limited Boston to just three hits over six innings before turning the game over to the bullpen.

Price went 5.2 innings, allowing all three New York runs in the bottom of the fourth inning. He gave up eleven hits, walked one and struck out one.

Lack of run support has plagued Price all season. In his seven losses this season, the Sox have scored two or fewer runs in each of them.
