At least Nathan Eovaldi looked good.

Brett Gardner's grand slam off Red Sox reliever Ryan Brasier in the bottom of the seventh served as Wednesday night's crushing blow in yet another Boston loss, this time 5-3 to the Yankees who swept the brief two-game series.

Eovaldi (pictured) went six innings in the no-decision outing, holding New York to just one run (unearned at that) on three hits and a walk while striking out six.

Brandon Workman set the stage for Brasier allowing a leadoff single and a pair of walks while striking out one before leaving.

All three Boston runs scored on home runs off Yankees starter J.A. Happ - a solo shot by J.D. Martinez in the first and a two run homer by Christian Vazquez in the second.

Martinez and Rafael Devers had two hits in the loss. Mookie Betts, who continues to look lost at the plate went 0-4. Dustin Pedroia left the game in the second inning after experiencing discomfort in his surgically repaired left knee.
