No Yankees batter had more than one hit, with Aaron Judge going 0-for-4 with two strikeouts. The Red Sox gathered at the edge of the dugout steps to congratulate Betts - with Price pushing his way through to thank him.

Rick Porcello (4-12) gave up three runs - one earned - and nine hits in six innings.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi talks about the team's bullpen after the Yankees lose at home to the Brewers on Friday, July 7, 2017. "It was electric. It was just a fun moment to be a part of". The hit was Dustin Pedroia's RBI single in the sixth, which scored Betts, who three innings earlier had ended the team's scoring drought with his 17th homer of the year. The 2016 AL Cy Young victor leads the major leagues in losses despite making his 17th consecutive start of six innings or more.

"Personally, I don't agree with the way [Joe Maddon] used me, but he is the manager, and he has the strategy", Chapman said through an interpreter in December, according to Andrew Marchand of ESPN.

"Highlight-reel catch against probably the most notarized power guy in the game, and timely. He came up big".

NY had not won back-to-back games since a season-high, six-game spurt from June 7-12, going 7-19 before winning Saturday and in the first game Sunday. The Rays beat the Angels late last night out on the West Coast, so the Yankees are now 4.5 games back of the Red Sox and one game back of the Rays in the AL East. He settled in against Red Sox lefty David Price.

Blue Apron shares are down 21.2% for the month to date while Amazon shares are up 3.5% for the period. Martha Stewart is even offering meal kits on Amazon Fresh , the company's grocery delivery service.

While the Sox have not had a significant problem with runners in scoring position most of this season, wasted scoring opportunities have been a pinstriped boogeyman against NY.

Red Sox: RHP Blaine Boyer was put on the 10-day DL with a strained right elbow.

In Saturday's 16-inning, 4-1 win, Chapman tossed a scoreless 14th after issuing a leadoff walk.

NOTES: New York RHP Bryan Mitchell and Boston INF/OF Brock Holt were the 26th men for Sunday's doubleheader.

Thirty-four innings later, the opportunity has come and gone, and the Sox are right back where they were at the beginning of the All-Star break with the same obvious strengths and the same glaring weaknesses.

Yankees: Open a three-game series against Minnesota.
