Red Sox bats were quieted in the Bronx, limited to just five hits in a 5-1 loss to the New York Yankees snapping their tw0-game winning streak.
Michael Chavis smacked a solo homer in the top of the third, and the Red Sox didn't score again after that.
Meanwhile, the Yankees used two homers -- a two-run poke from Aaron Judge and a solo shot from Gio Urshela -- to jump in front of starter Ryan Weber, who lasted just 3.2 innings.
New York cemented the victory with a two-run homer into the upper deck in right by Brett Gardner in the eighth.

9:54 Nothing cheap about that one -- Brett Gardner golfs a pitch from Colten Brewer into the second deck to go up by five. Red Sox bullpen had tossed 4.1 scoreless innings of relief, keeping the game in hand.
9:28 Chavis has looked uncomfortable around the first base bag at times this season, but he did a nice job digging out that low throw from Bogaerts.
9:23 Red Sox bats have gone quiet -- just two hits (both singles) over the last four innings.
8:42 Valdez is an interesting piece. Good movement on his pitches and a live arm. He's someone who could be play a bigger role in the near future if he keeps throwing well.
8:30 That's it for Weber, who lasts 3.1 innings,. The damage against him came on the long ball, but also troubling was the four walks. Phillips Valdez on
8:24 Another mistake -- changeup left up over the middle -- and another homer to right. Urshela takes Weber deep.
8:03 Bad combination: a hanging curveball, a super-strong hitter and a short porch in RF. Two-run homer for Aaron Judge gives the Yankees 2-1 lead.
7:56 Sloppy baserunning by Kevin Pillar, who doesn't get back to the first base bag quickly enough and is doubled up by Aaron Judge in RF. Not a good look and happening too frequently in the first week.
7:50 Michael Chavis unloads on a fastball down-and-in for his first homer of the season. Chavis with three hits in the last two games.
7:44 Jackie Bradley Jr. makes a fine catch against the wall on Brett Gardner, though it wasn't quite as deep as he initially believed.
7:34 Jordan Montgomery, making his first start of the season, has yet to give up a hard-hit ball through the first two innings. In fact, Red Sox haven't hit a ball out of the infield yet.
7:23 Strong first inning for Ryan Weber, who gets all three outs on the ground. That's a good sign for him and indicates them he's successful in keeping the ball down in the zone. With this lineup and this ballpark, he's can make mistakes up in the zone.
7:14 J.D. Martinez continues to struggle with the bat. Since a good start in the first two games, Martinez is now just 2-for-21
