The Red Sox saw their American League East lead shrink to five games following a three-game sweep by the Yankees. Mike Lowell recorded Boston's first hit in the seventh inning, but the offense managed little else off Chien-Ming Wang.
Chien-Ming Wang tossed seven scoreless innings and didn't allow a hit over the first six frames as the Yankees brushed aside the Red Sox. Robinson Cano hit two homers to power New York's offense in the finale.
