The Red Sox made a critical statement on Thursday night: if they meet The Bronx Embalmers in the post-season, they can most assuredly beat them. In the biggest Boston defeat of the Yankees in their 117-year rivalry, The Carmine Hose walloped out 23 hits—including 10 doubles—in a 19-3 evisceration of The Evil Ones. Eight Boston players had at least two RBIs—tying an MLB record. Rick Porcello—staked to a 7-0 lead—was shaky early, but settled down to give up just three runs over six innings. The offense was pretty much spread across the Red Sox lineup, but Xander Bogaerts stood out—with two home runs, four hits total, four runs scored and and four RBIs. Besides Bogie, the other players with at least two RBIs were: Mookie Betts (2), Sandy Leon (2), Rafael Devers (2), Michael Chavis (2), Mitch Moreland (2), Christian Vazquez (2) and Jackie Bradley, Jr. (2). Boston's win moved them to 10 games back in the AL East and just one game out of the second American League Wild Card spot.
