Chris Sale held the Yankees to just one hit over seven innings and Rafael Devers put up a 5-for-5 performance as the Red Sox rebounded to pound the Yankees 11-0 Saturday night in the Bronx.

Devers (pictured) put Boston on the board in the top of the first inning with a grand slam off New York starter Sonny Gray who never got out of the third inning. Still only 21, Devers became the youngest player to hit a grand slam in the long-running rivalry passing Joe DiMaggio and Ted Williams.

Chris Sale was absolutely electric.

He allowed a one-out single to Giancarlo Stanton in the bottom of the first before settling in. He struck out eleven and retired the last sixteen in a row he faced.

Sale walked just one as he improved his record to 8-4 and lowered his ERA to 2.41.

J.D. Martinez had three hits and drove in three runs in the Boston win. Mookie Betts, Xander Bogaerts and Sandy Leon added two hits apiece including Leon's monster two-run homer into the right field mezzanine level in the top of the seventh.

The three-game series closes Sunday night with David Price on the mound for Boston against Luis Severino.
