Joe Girardi points to postseason usage as part of Aroldis Chapman's struggles

With the Red Sox clinging to a 3-0 lead in the top of the eighth inning, Yankees rookie slugger Aaron Judge stepped to the plate against David Price with a runner on first and just one out.

A day after the teams played 16 innings over 5 hours, 50 minutes Saturday, they spent another long day at Fenway Park and ended the four-game series the way they started: with the Red Sox 31/2 games up in the AL East. Chapman's third straight appearance resulted in the Yanks' second straight win - the first time they've won back to back games in over a month. The Sox and Yankees split the series, leaving Boston atop the division, with the Rays three games back and NY half a game behind Tampa Bay.
