Ben Rice hit three home runs as the New York Yankees (55-36) rolled past the Boston Red Sox (48-40), 14-4, on Saturday afternoon at Yankee Stadium to snap a four-game skid.

Rice, who led off the game with a solo shot and had two three-run homers, became the first Yankees rookie ever to go deep three times in a game.

Alex Verdugo hit a game-tying two-run blast early in the third. DJ LeMahieu had a pair of RBI singles, while Anthony Volpe, Oswaldo Cabrera, and Austin Wells also drove in runs.

Gerrit Cole allowed four runs on seven hits in 4.1 innings while walking two and striking out eight. Tim Hill picked up the win in relief of Cole, firing 2.2 scoreless before Josh Maciejewski recorded the final six outs.

Box Score

The Yankees will hand the ball to Luis Gil on Sunday Night Baseball, hoping to win their first series since June 10-13. The first pitch is slated for 7:10 p.m.
