Yankees shut out in series loss to Red Sox, drop to MLB-worst 6-16 in last 22 games (highlights)

Things have not been going well for the New York Yankees (55-37) over the last three weeks, and it continued on Sunday Night in the Bronx as they were shutout 3-0 by the Boston Red Sox (49-40), losing two of three in the series and dropping to an MLB-worst 6-16 in their last 22 games.

The game was scoreless until one out in the top of the seventh when Rafael Devers, who has outstanding numbers against the Yankees in his career, launched one into the left-field seats for a solo home run off Luis Gil.

After the Yankees wasted a Juan Soto leadoff double in the home half of the seventh, the Red Sox added to their lead in the eighth as Ceddanne Rafaela crushed a solo shot off Luke Weaver to make it 2-0.

The Red Sox extended their lead in the ninth as Devers homered again, this time off Michael Tonkin. The Yankees then went down quietly to end the game and were shut out for the sixth time this season.

Despite giving up a home run in the seventh, Luis Gil was dominant, striking out nine without walking a batter over 6.2 innings.

Box Score

The Yankees will get the day off Monday before they begin a three-game series with the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field on Tuesday at 6:50 p.m.
