LEADING OFF: Bosox try for sweep in Bronx, O’s check Means

Rafael Devers and the Red Sox go for a three-game sweep at Yankee Stadium in this week’s Sunday night matchup. Kiké Hernández snapped an 0-for-27 skid with a tiebreaking double in the eighth inning as Boston completed its major league-best 20th come-from-behind victory, beating New York 7-3 Saturday. The Yankees dropped behind Toronto into fourth place in the AL East. They are 3-9 in their past 12 games, averaging just 2.4 runs. After going 9-1 against Boston in 2020, the Yankees have dropped the first two of 19 against the second-place Red Sox this year.
