It was Torres' 24th home run of the season, which sailed over the head of Blake Swihart at the bullpen wall to put the Yankees up 4-1 against the Red Sox. Some Boston Red Sox legends have made it to the Baseball Hall of Fame. The Sox will host the victor of that contest in Game 1 of the ALDS on Friday. Red Sox: 4-6, .273 batting average, 5.38 ERA, outscored opponents by three runs. As the Yankees celebrated in the dugout, Mookie Betts had jogged to grab it and passed it on to a ball girl sitting on the warning track down the right field line. The 25-year-old southpaw will have to pitch better than he did on Saturday. In 11 starts with NY, the 6-foot-5 Haap owns a 2.68 ERA and has fanned 63 batters in 63-2/3 innings. Manager Aaron Boone said the Yankees were being cautious with Judge, who returned from the disabled list September 14 with a wrist fracture. Pearce changed all that with the first pitch Haap threw him. The last Red Sox player to win the AL batting title was Bill Mueller, with a.326 average in 2003. Overall, Haap is 17-6 with Toronto and NY this season.

The two-run shot by Torres drove in Greg Bird and gave NY a 4-1 lead. As the Sox and Yanks meet at Fenway Park during the final weekend of the MLB regular season - with a chance of the Yankees returning to Fenway to renew the rivalry in the American League Division Series, should they win Wednesday's AL Wild Card Game against Oakland - it is clear that the rivalry is alive and well. Gary Sanchez, Luke Voit and Aaron Judge smashed solo home runs and Aaron Hicks blasted a three-run home run.

Yankees: All-Star RHP Luis Severino (19-8, 3.39 ERA) had been listed to start Sunday, but was scratched.

Another superb rookie, Miguel Andujar also set a new franchise record as he climbed over Joe DiMaggio for most doubles by a Yankee rookie (44 in 1936). Holt was doubled in by Mitch Moreland, making it 2-0, and Bradley scored when Holt sprayed a double off the Green Monster in the second to make it 5-0. Eduardo Rodriguez struck out a pair in a 1-2-3 fifth, Matt Barnes fanned two while working around a two-out single in the sixth and Ryan Brasier tossed a scoreless seventh.

The home run record wasn't the only one to fall. Judge battled injuries after hitting 52 as a rookie; Stanton dropped from 59 to 37.


In all, Happ allowed four runs on four hits and two walks, striking out seven in six innings.

When Stanton followed Hicks' blast with a single, Cora finally took Cuevas out and brought in Heath Hembree to get out of the inning.

Bogaerts forced in a run with a bases-loaded walk in the ninth.
