Yankees Lose 10-2 but Clinch Playoff Birth.

Yes -- they lost Sunday, snapping the 10-game win streak, but clinched a postseason birth with the Padres' win over the Mariners. Deivi Garcia didn't have it for the first time -- but would you still trust him in the playoffs? Apparently, some are not ready to commit. Judge & Urshela were out of the lineup for planned off days, but a close eye is being kept. Don't overlook JA Happ for a Game 3 start -- he's earned it. Gary Sanchez is climbing out of the hole, but he doesn't have to be a star. Plus, playoff maneuvering by Aaron Boone, and an eye on potential seeding.

Red Sox finally beat Yankees to snap 12-game skid vs rivals

Tanner Houck took a no-hitter into the sixth inning of his second major league start and Michael Chavis had a huge day at the plate as the Boston Red Sox halted two long streaks with a 10-2 victory over the New York Yankees on Sunday.

Erik Kratz is the first position player to pitch for the Yankees this season. NYY had two position players do it last season, Mike Ford on Aug.15 vs. Indians and Austin Romine on July 25 vs. Red Sox. Before that it hadn't happened since 2015. Here is the entire list of Yankees position players to have pitched in a regular season game in the Wild Card era (since 1993), per ESPN Stats and Info.

Yankees catcher Erik Kratz took the mound in the 8th inning at Fenway Park with the Red Sox leading 9-1. Kratz finished the inning giving up just 1 hit, a HR to J.D. Martinez. Red Sox 3 outs away from breaking a 12-game losing streak to the Yankees.

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

Jonathan Holder gave up a solo HR to Bobby Daldec, a single to Jackie Bradley and a base on balls to Michael Chavis to start the bottom of the 7th inning. Red Sox holding on to a 7-1 lead over the Yankees, who are on a 10-game winning streak, and have won 12 consecutive games vs. Boston.

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

Michael Chavis with his second homer of the game off Deivi García, another tape-measure HR, to give the Red Sox a 6-0 lead as they look to end the Yankees' 12-game winning streak. Last night, the Yankees got their 12th consecutive victory vs. Boston, which tied the franchise record. The Yankees have won 12 straight games vs. the Red Sox and 17 of the last 18 games between the clubs since July 28, 2019.

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

Red Sox and Yankees both have rookie pitchers on the mound today, Tanner Houck and Deivi Garcia. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, there have been 36 rookie vs. rookie starting pitcher matchups in MLB this season (entering today).

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

As shown on the TV broadcast, Deivi García has a No. 45 on his belt in honor of Pedro Martínez, the player he idolized growing up. Deivi told me he's never felt pressure and has embraced being compared with one of the all-time greatest.

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

Last night's 8-0 loss to the Yankees snapped the Red Sox' streak of 68 consecutive games without being shut out (last: 9/11/19 at Toronto) which was MLB's longest active streak.

Yanks win 12th straight vs. Red Sox, tying record

The Yankees beat the rival Red Sox for a franchise-record-tying 12th straight time on Saturday, though manager Aaron Boone characterized the streak as "probably a little bit fluky," given the state of Boston's team. "Enjoy it while it lasts," he added.

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

J.A. Happ said that the Yankees were aware and talked about tying the franchise record with their 12th consecutive win over the Red Sox tonight, and even establishing a new one tomorrow.

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

The Red Sox had men in the corners with no outs in the 8th inning but J.A. Happ worked out of trouble. The Yankees head to the 9th inning at Fenway Park with a 7-0 lead, looking for their 10th consecutive win this season, and 12th straight vs. their AL East rivals.

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

The Yankees, who have a 7-0 lead after 5 innings at Fenway, came into tonight with 11 straight wins vs. Boston since July 28, 2019. A win tonight would tie their longest win streak vs. the Red Sox in franchise history. The Yankees won a franchise-record-tying 12 straight from 8/16/52-4/23/53.

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

Red Sox announce Christian Arroyo was removed from the game due to "back spasms."

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

JA Happ throws another scoreless inning and the Yankees lead is 4-0 after 4 innings at Fenway. Happ is 12-4 with a 2.95 ERA in 26 career regular season games (25 starts) vs. the Red Sox, the fourth-lowest ERA vs. Boston among active starting pitchers (minimum 50.0 IP) behind Drew Smyly (2.35), Blake Snell (2.59) and Justin Verlander (2.87). In seven starts vs. Boston as a Yankee, Happ is 5-0 with a 2.85 ERA (41.0IP, 13ER).
