The New York Yankees couldn’t complete the three-game sweep of the Boston Red Sox on Sunday Night Baseball as they fell, 4-3.
Boston jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead in the first after J.D. Martinez hammered a RBI double to left and Christian Arroyo lined a sacrifice fly to right.
Giancarlo Stanton put the Yankees on the board in the third with a RBI single to left.
Jonathan Arauz put the Red Sox back up by two in the fourth with a sacrifice fly to right. The Yankees answered in the bottom half of the inning. Anthony Rizzo ripped a two-run single to left-center to tie the game at three.
In the sixth, Bobby Dalbec launched a solo home run over the right-field wall to put Boston back in the lead, 4-3. That ended up being the difference in the game as Boston held on for the victory.
The Yankees had several opportunities to tie the game or take the lead, but just couldn’t capitalize. They left 11 runners on base.
Jordan Montgomery made his first start of the season and allowed three runs on four hits over 3.1 innings while walking one and striking out four. Clarke Schmidt made his first appearance of the season and allowed one run over 2.1 innings. Lucas Luetge, Jonathan Loaisiga and Wandy Peralta each tossed a scoreless inning.
Stanton recorded a three-hit game and Aaron Judge collected two hits.
The Yankees will begin a four-game series with the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday night in the Bronx. Jameson Taillon will get the ball. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m.
