Red Sox take over basepaths, sink Yankees

volpe

The Boston Red Sox set a franchise record by stealing nine bases en route to a 9-3 victory over the visiting New York Yankees on Sunday night.

David Hamilton had four of Boston’s nine steals. He also had two hits and scored three times.

Boston’s Ceddanne Rafaela collected three hits and drove in two runs. Rafaela is 11-for-19 in his past five games. Connor Wong added a team-high three RBIs for the Red Sox on Sunday.

The Yankees received solo home runs from Aaron Judge and Jose Trevino. It was Judge’s 26th homer of the year and Trevino’s eighth.

Boston starting pitcher Kutter Crawford (3-6) struck out nine in six innings. He gave up three runs on three hits and walked one.

New York starter Marcus Stroman (6-3) allowed four runs on seven hits in five innings. He walked four and fanned three.

Yankees first baseman Anthony Rizzo left the game in the seventh due to a right arm injury after he collided with Red Sox reliever Brennan Bernardino at first base while reaching on a Dominic Smith throwing error. It was Boston’s 53rd error of the season — the most of any major league team.

Boston led 4-3 when Zack Kelly replaced Bernardino on the mound with the bases loaded and no outs in the seventh. Kelly retired all three batters he faced without allowing a run.

After Judge opened the scoring with his home run in the top of the first, the Red Sox took the lead in the second on Rafaela’s two-run single. Hamilton scored on a double-play grounder to extend Boston’s lead to 3-1 in the third, and then he stretched the lead to 4-1 by scoring on a Rafael Devers sacrifice fly in the fifth.

Trevino’s home run in the sixth cut Boston’s lead to 4-2, and Anthony Volpe scored on a Crawford wild pitch later in the inning to make it 4-3.

Boston built another two-run cushion when Devers drove in Jarren Duran with a single in the seventh, and Wong followed with a two-run triple that put the Red Sox up 7-3.

Hamilton’s RBI single in the eighth drove in Rafaela to stretch the lead to 8-3, and Hamilton scored the game’s final run on Wong’s single.
