In the top of the eighth inning of tonight's Sunday Night Baseball game on ESPN, Boston Red Sox center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. made as good a catch as you'll ever see.

"Once I saw him start timing it, I figured he had a chance to catch it". The offense had gone 24 innings without producing a run before Mookie Betts hit a two-run home run in the third inning of last night's series finale.

In the early game, Sabathia (8-3) made his second start since a stint on the disabled list (strained left hamstring).

Did Gregorius doubled with one out in the ninth and Kimbrel walked pinch hitter Brett Gardner after a fly out to bring up another pinch hitter in Chase Headley, who struck out to end the game.

The team went 0-for-11 with runners in scoring position in the afternoon and couldn't get a win for Porcello, who allowed three runs, but only one earned, through six innings. "He came up big".

Boston (52-41) salvaged a split of its four-game series with NY (47-43) after losing the first game of the doubleheader 3-0 earlier Sunday afternoon.

Forty-eight hours ago, the Red Sox had a walk-off win in their pocket and a long weekend of opportunity in their sights. The Rays beat the Angels late last night out on the West Coast, so the Yankees are now 4.5 games back of the Red Sox and one game back of the Rays in the AL East.

Yankees: RHP Michael Pineda was transferred to the 60-day DL while he seeks a second opinion on whether he needs Tommy John surgery.

Then it was back to Chapman, who worked around a leadoff walk in the 14th inning to recover some semblance of confidence, tossing 15 pitches before giving way to another rookie, Ben Heller.

NOTES: New York RHP Bryan Mitchell and Boston INF/OF Brock Holt were the 26th men for Sunday's doubleheader.

Red Sox: LHP Eduardo Rodriguez (4-2) starts against Toronto's Marcus Stroman (9-5) on Monday night in the opener of a four-game series.
