With Saturday's win, CC Sabathia is now 3-0 with a 0.90 ERA in three starts against Boston this season.

Rougned Odor teed off twice against the White Sox, with his second blast reaching the upper deck in right field at Globe Life Park.

Sunday's longest home runs

Devers gets to Chapman

There was a lot that made Rafael Devers' game-tying home run off Aroldis Chapman impressive. First off, at 102.8 mph, it was the fastest pitch anyone has hit for a homer in the pitch-tracking era. Devers is only the second left-handed hitter to take Chapman deep. The pitcher had only allowed four extra-base hits and no home runs with two strikes in his career before Devers' blast. Not bad for a 20-year-old. (ESPN Stats & Info)
