The Yankees have three teams to pass in the wild card chase, but they start the pursuit with a nine-game home stand against the struggling Red Sox.

Top of the first, Yoenis Cespedes drills one to deep left field, Mookie Betts scores, 1-0 Red Sox.

To the third, Red Sox up 2-0, Daniel Nava with the three run blast to right, 5-0 Red Sox.

Couple batters later, Xander Bogaerts goes yard, that knocks Shane Greene out of the game and it's 6-0 Red Sox.

Bottom of the inning, Yankees looking to climb back, Martin Prado lines a shot to left, too bad no one was on base, but the Yankees are on the board.

But the Red Sox keep it coming, first pitch of the 4th, Betts rips one to left to make it 7-1.

Red Sox go on to win 9-4.
