IN-GAME OBSERVATIONS:

10:42  Given how well the Yankees have been swinging the bat this series, I didn't expect that Ryan Weber would be the guy who shuts them down. And yet, here we are and Weber has retired all six hitters he's faced.

10:23  Andrew Benintendi drills a single up the middle to score two, chasing Happ and making things mildly interesting.

10:00 Signs of life, finally, from the Red Sox offense, with back-to-back homers Christian Vazquez and Michael Chavis.

9:52  Tremendous play by Jackie Bradley Jr., who sprints into the gap in left center and takes extra bases away from Mike Fort, and, not that it matters, saved two runs.

9:28  That's it for Price, who comes completely unglued in the third. Faces 10 hitters in the third, eight reach, and six score, with 37 pitches thrown.

9:14  OK, so maybe the changeup wasn't great there -- left up in the zone for Gio Urshela to crush to left-center.

9:07 Despite the homer by Judge in the first, this is the best David Price has looked in some time. Both the changeup and cutter -- his two most important pitches -- have been effective.

8:28 Aaron Judge got jammed on the previous pitch and hit a ball down the line. But not on that one - driven the other way, but way out to RF.
