It took an amazing David Price performance and a spectacular home-run robbing catch by Jackie Bradley Jr. (pictured) Sunday night, but the Red Sox managed a split of both yesterday's day-night doubleheader and the weekend series with the Yankees at Fenway Park.
Both games featured identical 3-0 scores.
In the first game, CC Sabathia shut down the Boston offense for six innings on just two hits. His Red Sox counterpart Rick Porcello pitched just well enough to lose, allowing three runs (just one earned) over six innings.
Price tossed eight shutout innings in the night game, allowing seven hits and no walks while striking out eight. JBJ's catch in the eighth off New York rookie Aaron Judge (just 1-for-18 over the weekend) prevented the Yankees from scoring two runs.
Mookie Betts broke Boston's 24-inning scoreless streak in the bottom of the third inning with his 17th home run of the year; it came with Christian Vazquez aboard. Dustin Pedroia completed the scoring with an RBI single in the sixth.

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball and radio (WDHA).
