CC Sabathia allowed two hits over six innings in the opener, and Didi Gregorius hit a solo home run to give NY a 3-0 victory.

"(The reaction) actually made the hair stand up on my arm", said Red Sox right fielder Mookie Betts, who provided the bulk of Boston's offense with a two-run homer.

Aaron Judge put on a show at the Home Run Derby in Miami last week, but Jackie Bradley Jr. wasn't about to let Judge carry that momentum into Sunday's game at Fenway Park.

Price finished off the inning with a strikeout of Matt Holliday.

"It's one of those balls you try to time up", Bradley said of his incredible catch.

Price (5-2) allowed seven hits, walked none and struck out eight in eight innings. One night after giving up a tying homer in the ninth to send the game into extra innings, Craig Kimbrel pitched the ninth for his 24th save. The Yankees are the last team in the majors to be shut out.

Masahiro Tanaka (7-9) gave up three runs on eight hits in 7 2/3 innings, striking out nine.

"I just hit it to the wrong part of the park and the wrong center fielder", Judge said.

Pedroia made it 3-0 with his RBI single in the sixth.

CC Sabathia (8-3) tossed six scoreless innings to outduel Boston starter Rick Porcello (4-12).

Judge, who leads the majors with 30 homers, got an infield single on a dribbler to the pitcher in the seventh, ending a 0-for-15 slide.

Aroldis Chapman pitched a scoreless ninth for his ninth save of the season.

"We had told him yesterday there was a good chance he was going start on Sunday", Joe Girardi said Sunday morning.

The Red Sox were held to four hits and have gone scoreless in 22 consecutive innings after scoring a run in the third inning of Saturday's five-hour, 50-minute game. The 2016 AL Cy Young victor leads the major leagues in losses despite making his 17th consecutive start of six innings or more. A big catch to the deepest part of the ballpark preserved the shutout at that point. - Red Sox manager John Farrell.
