These Yankees were built with beating the Red Sox in mind, not holding on desperately to a wild-card spot.

The Patriots head coach was in Canton, Ohio on Saturday to watch Randy Moss get inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and on Sunday night, he was at Fenway Park watching the Boston Red Sox complete an incredible comeback against the New York Yankees.

After dropping the first two games of the series, in a wild 15-7 affair on Thursday and a 4-1 one-hitter thrown by Boston's Rick Porcello on Friday, the Yankees called up their 13th-ranked prospect in righty Chance Adams to make the Saturday start at Fenway.

The words made their way around the Boston clubhouse.

That's not to say Belichick didn't enjoy himself.

"I'm not paying attention to the amount of pitches that I have", Chapman said through an interpreter, downplaying his high pitch count as a reason for his struggles. "We know what we are, we know what we can do and we went out and showed it".

Earlier, Mitch Moreland hit his 13th homer, a two-run drive over the right-field fence to give the Red Sox a 2-0 lead in the first inning. If the subscription is canceled prior to the expiration of that free week, fans can watch the New York Yankees vs. Boston Red Sox contest streamed live at no charge.

"Everybody knew how big this series was", Benintendi said. "Ian comes out and we want to stay away from Xander (Bogaerts) and Ron (bench coach Roenicke) wanted to put him at second and I was OK with it". "Every win counts the same, but now again we have to re-shift our focus toward Toronto". He will play in a rehab game for the Lowell Spinners Monday night. The two teams began the series Thursday separated by 5.5 games.

Kevin Gausman was outpitched in his Braves debut by a blossoming Zack Wheeler, and the New York Mets won to stop Atlanta's five-game winning streak. The next time the Yankees play a team with a winning record, it will be September 3 when they travel to Oakland to play the Athletics in a series that could have huge ramifications on the AL Wild Card Game.

Yankees: Judge is expecting to start swinging a bat "soon", with a goal of returning to the lineup in three weeks. "But we can't let this define what's been a great season".

With New York leading 4-1 in the ninth, Chapman loaded the bases on walks before Martinez's two-out, two-run single pulled Boston within one. Eddie Rosario and Logan Morrison also homered as the Twins won their second straight against the Royals. The Red Sox then scored on a walk-off single from Andrew Benintendi in the 10th to complete the sweep in dramatic fashion. Judge, out since taking a fastball from Kansas City right-hander Jakob Junis on July 26, could take some swings later this weekend in Boston or next week when the Yankees visit the Chicago White Sox, Boone said. "Because when we go head to head, we do some damage against them and it doesn't seem like anybody else is capable".

Cashman was certainly right; the Yankees did some damage against the Red Sox over the weekend's series - It was self-inflicted.

"Don't lead me into that one", he said.
