Boston tied the game in the ninth on a throwing error from Miguel Andujar, which scored Jackie Bradley Jr. and handed Aroldis Chapman the blown save. J.D. Martinez also drove in two with a single during the rally, moving Boston 45 games over .500 with their eight win in the past nine games. Mookie Betts also chipped in with his 26th home run of the season in the fifth inning.
Boston handed the Yankees their first four-game series sweep at Fenway when they were 30 games over .500 or more since 1939, which was Ted Williams' rookie season.
Matt Barnes earned his fourth win for the Red Sox by throwing a perfect 10th inning, while Jonathan Holder gave up the game-winning hit to suffer his third loss for the Yankees. Sandy Leon led off that inning with a single and took second base on a wild pitch. Pinch-runner Tony Renda would then score the winning run on Benintendi's game-winning hit. The Red Sox's ninth-inning rally snapped Chapman's streak of 22 straight converted save opportunities since his last blown save on May 4th.
David Price continued to pitch well in the rotation for the Red Sox and lasted in to the seventh inning while giving up two runs on four hits with five strikeouts. That is much better than his first two starts this year against the Yankees, where he gave up 12 runs in a combined 4.1 innings.
The Yankees rallied on Heath Hembree in the seventh, as Xander Bogaerts bobbled a potential double play ball that scored two runs. Giancarlo Stanton added an RBI single, followed by a Gleyber Torres sacrifice fly to give them the lead until the ninth. Masahiro Tanaka was pulled in the fifth inning after giving up Betts' blast. He finished with a season-high nine strikeouts with six hits against him. The Yankees will visit the Chicago White Sox on Monday night, while the Red Sox move on to visit the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday.
