• Betances, Miller bail out 'pen mates
  • The hand-operated scoreboard in left field showed the Yankees holding a 10-run advantage in the fifth inning, and if Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller had been tempted to put their feet up out in the right-field bullpen and catch a mid-day snooze, hardly anyone would have blamed them.

  • Bottom of lineup jump-starts outburst
  • Half of the Yankees' games on this trip featured a double-digit run total, wrapping up the journey with a 13-8 thumping of Henry Owens and the Red Sox on Wednesday at Fenway Park. Getting contributions from the bottom of the order has been an important key.

  • Girardi: A-Rod not 'comfortable' at first
  • Alex Rodriguez's season-long mantra has been that he will do whatever the Yankees ask of him, but after observing an awkward practice session at first base this week at Fenway Park, manager Joe Girardi said that they have decided to keep the slugger in his adopted comfort zone as a designated hitter.

  • Yanks dig in, have sights set on Jays
  • The Yankees were just beginning to dig into plates of red meat and lobster macaroni in Fenway Park's cramped visiting clubhouse, wolfing down a celebratory postgame spread, when the Blue Jays' victory over the Indians flickered across the flat-screen televisions.

  • Aggressive steal backfires on Sox
  • As Mookie Betts sat in the dirt, his feet resting on third base, the look of disbelief on the Red Sox center fielder's face conveyed everything video replay could not.

  • Yanks edge rivals, keep pace in East

  • On crutches, Teixeira out at least 2 weeks
