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.
2) Austin Romine got the Yankees on the board in the third inning, launching a two-run home run over the Green Monster. Romine, stepping up in the absence of Gary Sanchez, has 10 hits in his last 25 at-bats.
3) Didi Gregorius took Chris Sale deep to extend the Yankees lead to 4-0 in the fourth inning. Gregorius has enjoyed a fine July, hitting four home runs and driving in 21 runs.
4) Aaron Judge went 1-for-19 in the four-game series, lowering his batting average to .284 from .311. Despite the mini-skid, Judge has managed four home runs and 11 RBI this month.
5) Edwin Encarnacion, Gio Urshela and Cameron Maybin each logged two hits and combined for four runs and two RBIs.
