Red Sox beat Yankees 5-1, move 5 up in AL East

BOSTON (AP) Jackie Bradley Jr. knows all about the Fenway Park triangle, and how long it can take to get the ball back to the infield from the 420-foot marker.

So when the Red Sox center fielder saw, as he pulled into second, that his Yankees counterpart had just picked up the ball, Bradley sped off for third. The two-run triple was all Boston needed, but Bradley added an RBI single in the sixth to help the Red Sox beat the Yankees 5-1 on Sunday and extend their margin in the AL East to five games.

"Jackie's been phenomenal, swinging the bat today, and doing what he did with 3 RBIs," said Boston starter Rick Porcello, who pitched six innings of a combined three-hitter. "He's the best I've seen in center field. Very fortunate to have him behind me when I'm pitching."
