The win allowed Boston to salvage one of the three games in the series and put them back into a tie with New York for first place in the American League East.

Joe Kelly was the winner in relief despite allowing four runs - including three inherited runners - in the bottom of the seventh inning.

Eduardo Rodriguez went five innings and held the Yankees to just one hit. He walked three and struck out eight, including five in a row at one point.

Craig Kimbrel delivered a 1-2-3 ninth inning for his tenth save of the year.

Hanley Ramirez (pictured) drove in three runs, including a solo home run in the fifth. Mookie Betts led the team with three hits.
