The New York Yankees snapped a three-game skid with a 3-2 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Saturday night at Fenway Park.

Frankie Montas made his second start with the Yankees and surrendered a pair of runs over five innings while striking out four.

Isiah Kiner-Falefa led New York’s offense as he drove in all three runs. He crushed his first home run of the season over the Green Monster in the top of the fifth inning to tie the game, 2-2. In the top of the ninth, Kiner-Falefa brought home what would be the winning run with a safety squeeze. He collected three of the team’s six hits.

Boston plated both of their runs in the bottom of the fourth on a hit by pitch and a sacrifice fly.

New York’s bullpen was outstanding as Lucas Luetge, Lou Trivino, Aroldis Chapman, and Scott Effross all had scoreless outings.

The Yankees will try to take the series on Sunday as they send Jameson Taillon to the mound. The first pitch is slated for 7:08 p.m.
