A 3-3 home stand was at least semi-positive, but save for a magnificent performance by David Price against Baltimore on Sunday, the starting pitching still wasn't performing up to its capability.

Boston starter Chris Sale (pictured) showed a definite increase in velocity touching 95-96mph regularly, but struggled to get through five innings against New York allowing four runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out six.

Yankees starter James Paxton held the Red Sox to just two hits over eight innings while striking out twelve.
