Red Sox Beat Yankees in AL Wild Card 6-2

The Red Sox are moving on.

Facing the rival Yankees, Boston jumped all over AL Cy Young candidate Gerrit Cole for two homers in the first three innings to take an early 3-0 lead.

A stellar outing from Nathan Eovaldi and shutdown performance from the bullpen kept the Yankee bats in check. New York scored solo home runs in the sixth and ninth innings, but it wasn’t enough as the Red Sox won the American League wild-card game 6-2 to move on to the ALDS.

They will face AL East rivals and the top team in the American League, the Rays.
