CC Sabathia held the Red Sox to just two runs on four hits over six innings, while Chris Sale (pictured) was touched for a pair of home runs as the Red Sox fell to the Yankees 4-3 at Fenway Park on Saturday to even the weekend series at a game apiece.
New York scored three in the top of the second inning on Tyler Austin's second home run of the year, coming with two aboard.
Boston cut the lead to 3-2 in the fifth on a run-scoring ground out by Sandy Leon and an RBI single by Jackie Bradley Jr.
Todd Fraizer homered in the sixth off Sale; Rafael Devers answered that with a solo shot of his own in the bottom of the seventh. Devers became the first player age 20 or younger to homer in three straight games against the Yankees since some guy named Babe Ruth did it back in 1915.
Born in Queens, NYC and lived kind of all over the place from PA to NJ to NYC and back to NJ.
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).
