Red Sox Bullpen Comes Through In Huge 5-4 Win Over Rival Yankees

The Boston Red Sox defeated the New York Yankees 5-4 on Tuesday night to move within one game of the Bronx Bombers for first place in the American League East standings.

Red Sox pitcher Drew Pomeranz earned his third straight win in a brief five-inning outing, but only allowed two runs (one earned) on six hits while striking out seven.

Boston got a lot of help from the bullpen in the win, including Joe Kelly’s exciting strike out against New York’s Aaron Judge.
