Jackie Bradley Jr. drove in three runs and Rick Porcello (pictured) delivered another strong start as the Red Sox beat the Yankees 5-1 Sunday afternoon at Fenway Park.
The win increased the lead in the American League East back to five games.
Boston scored in the second on a two-out, two-RBI triple by Bradley.
The Yankees tied the game in the fifth on a solo home run to right field just past the Pesky Pole by Brett Gardner.
JBJ drove in the third Red Sox run of the day on another two-out hit, this one a single in the bottom of the sixth.
Sandy Leon added a pair of insurance runs in the eighth with a two-run double.
Sonny Gray started for the Yankees and while he held Boston to just a pair of runs, the Red Sox did a very good job of running up his pitch count. He was lifted after just five innings after his pitch count reached 106. He also did not record a single strikeout.
Porcello went six innings allowing one run on just three hits. He struck out four and walked three in winning his fourth straight decision.

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 (PBI) and radio (WDHA).
