Yankees embarrassed in series loss to Red Sox

It was an ugly Sunday night for the New York Yankees (50-24) as they gave up nine stolen bases and fell 9-3 to the Boston Red Sox (37-35) at Fenway Park, dropping two of three in the series.

The nine stolen bases allowed were the second-most in franchise history and the most since 1915.

New York trailed 4-3 after six innings but loaded the bases with nobody out in the seventh. However, things did not go the Yankees way. Gleyber Torres struck out after being ahead 3-0 in the count, Jose Trevino struck out on three pitches, and DJ LeMahieu lined out to center field.

After failing to do damage, the Red Sox responded with three runs in the bottom of the frame and two in the eighth to pull away.

Aaron Judge crushed his Major League-leading 26th home run to give the Yankees a 1-0 lead in the first. Jose Trevino launched his eighth homer, and Anthony Volpe scored the other run on a wild pitch.

Marcus Stroman was charged with four runs on seven hits over five innings. Caleb Ferguson and Ian Hamilton surrendered two runs each, while Luke Weaver gave up another.

Box Score

The Yankees will get the day off Monday before they begin a huge three-game series with the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday night at Yankee Stadium.
