David Price Gives Up Five Home Runs As Yankees Clobber Red Sox
Aaron Hicks swatted three home runs and David Price was roughed up, lasting just 3.1 innings as the Yankees clobbered the Red Sox 11-1 at Yankee Stadium on Sunday night.
Hicks became just the 3rd Yankee to hit three home runs in a game against the Red Sox. The last player to do so was Mark Teixeira in 2010.
Price allowed eight runs on nine hits while serving up five home runs. Since signing with Boston before the 2016 season, Price is 2-6 with an 8.43 ERA in nine starts against the Yankees.
Aaron Judge, Gleyber Torres and Kyle Higashioka also homered for the Yankees.
Yankees pitcher Luis Severino became the first 13-game winner in baseball, sailing through 6.2 shutout innings of two-hit ball.
The Yankees (54-27) took two of three from the Red Sox (56-29) and again own baseball's best record and first place in the AL East.
Rick Porcello (9-3 with a 3.60 ERA) will be opposed by Max Scherzer (10-4 with a 2.04 ERA) when the Red Sox open a three-game road series with the Washington Nationals Monday night.
