Happ, Yankees Hand Red Sox First Shut Out Loss of Season
J.A. Happ pitched eight scoreless innings, Clint Frazier hit a two-run home run and the New York Yankees beat the Boston Red Sox 8-0 for their 10th consecutive win. The victory is New York’s 12th straight over Boston dating to last season, tying the Yankees’ longest winning streak in baseball’s most historic rivalry. It also dropped New York’s magic number to one to clinch its fourth consecutive postseason berth. The Yankees improved to 31-21 and ensured their 28th consecutive winning season, the second-longest streak in big league history behind their 39 in a row from 1926-64.
