Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

The Yankees-Red Sox game took two hours and 21 minutes. That is not a typo.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

That is what an ace performance looks like. Masahiro Tanka pitched a shutout to outduel Chris Sale, giving the Yankees a 3-0 win over the Red Sox. The Yankees took both games of this rain-shortened two-game series. They are 13-7, while the team Brian Cashman dubbed the "Golden State Warriors of baseball," the Red Sox, are 11-10.

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

Terrific 10-pitch at-bat by Matt Holliday results in sacrifice fly, which stops Chris Sale's shutout streak at 15 consecutive innings.

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

Chris Sale is lights-out, once again, for Red Sox. Through three innings against the Yankees, he has seven strikeouts on only 37 pitches (29 strikes).

ESPN Stats and Information  

When Masahiro Tanaka takes the mound on Thursday for the 80th time as a Yankee, he will be going for his 42nd career win. That would be the third-most of any Yankee pitcher whose career began in 1945 or later over his first 80 games.

Bradford Doolittle ESPN Staff Writer 

Great nugget from ESPN Stats & Info this morning: Of pitchers with at least seven career starts against the Yankees, Boston's Chris Sale has the lowest career ERA (1.25). Riffing off of that, of lefties with at least seven starts vs. New York, here are the top three, from baseball-reference.com and including some relief innings, which the previous stat does not: 1. Sale (1.17), 2. Harry Coveleski (1.57), 3. Babe Ruth (2.21). Ruth was 17-5 against the Yankees before he joined them in time for the 1920 season.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Aaron Judge opened the scoring against Rick Porcello and the Red Sox with a 391-foot blast. Long home runs haven't been out of the ordinary for Judge since he got called up last summer.
