The Yankees salvaged a win in the final game of their four-game series against the Red Sox, winning Sunday's game at Fenway Park by a score of 9-6. >> Box score

Five takeaways from Sunday's game

1) Finally, a Yankees starter settled things down long enough for the offense to find a bit of its lost magic. Domingo German struck out nine batters in 5.1 innings, while allowing three runs on four hits and one walk. German, who was crushed by the Twins in his last outing, was great for much of the night, with Andrew Benintendi's home run being the lone mistake of the night.

Yanks pound Rockies 00:01:21
Acting manager Bard, Judge, Happ Ottavino and Tarpley comment on Happ's start and Tarpley's outstanding effort in relief

The Yankees scored eight unanswered runs and defeated the Rockies, 8-2, Friday at Yankee Stadium. >> Box score

Six takeaways from Friday's game

1) The Yankees trailed early after the Rockies jumped out to an early 2-0 lead, but Edwin Encarnacion strode to the plate in the third with the bases loaded and quickly put the Yankees on top. Encarnacion was behind in the count 1-2 and got a good changeup from Kyle Freeland located down and away, but the right-handed hitter muscled it just over the wall in left for his 12th career grand slam. Only Albert Pujols, with 14 grand slams, has more among active players.

Yanks explode late for win 00:01:58
Boone, Judge, Sabathia, Gregorius and Hale on Yankees big 6-run 8th inning in their 8-3 win over Tampa

The Yankees rallied late and broke the game wide open with a pair of eighth-inning home runs to defeat the Rays, 8-3, Tuesday night at Yankee Stadium. >> Box score

Five takeaways from Tuesday's game

1) The eighth inning proved to be the deciding one for the Yanks, who trailed 3-2 with Gleyber Torres set to lead off against Colin Poche. The second baseman walked, but Brett Gardner struck out and D.J. LeMahieu lined out hard to right-center. That brought up Aaron Judge, who sent a ball just outside the right field foul pole on the sixth pitch of the at-bat. He made no mistake on the very next offering, however, powering a ball over the wall in right to give the Yankees a 4-3 lead. Poche remained in the game and allowed a single to Luke Voit and a double to Gary Sanchez before intentionally walking Edwin Encarnacion to load the bases for Didi Gregorius. On a 2-1 pitch, Gregorius ripped a grand slam deep into the right-field bleachers to give the Yankees plenty of breathing room.

The Yankees (59-33, 5.0 GA in AL East) are hosting the division foe Tampa Bay Rays (56-40, 5 GB in AL East) on Tuesday at 7:05 p.m. at Yankee Stadium.  

Yankees notes

Edwin Encarnacion mashed two homers against the Rays on Tuesday. He's hitting just .158 since joining the Yankees on June 17, but has a pair of two-hit, three-RBI games in his three appearances since the All-Star break... Aaron Hicks has gotten hot in July, posting a slash line of .342/.432/.656... Chad Green has also also settled down this month, allowing just one run in 7.1 innings, including two scoreless innings on Monday... Aaron Judge has made his hits against the Rays count this season. Though he's just 2-for-16 against Tampa Bay, both of his hits have been home runs.
