NEW YORK (AP) – Luke Voit homered twice, Aroldis Chapman returned from the COVID-19 injured list to pitch the ninth inning and the New York Yankees beat the Boston Red Sox 6-3 for their 10th straight victory in the famed rivalry. New York capped a four-game sweep and is on its best run against Boston since winning a franchise-best 12 straight games in 1952-53, a stretch when Red Sox star Ted Williams was serving in the Korean War. The AL East-leading Yankees have won six straight overall since dropping three of four at Tampa Bay from Aug. 7-9.
