"The most important thing is to worry about your own team and not what other teams are doing", said Yankees manager Joe Girardi, who learned before Thursday's game that the charging Angels had just added Justin Upton via trade from Detroit.

Coming to the end of a 7-year/$161 million contract, Sabathia has turned back the clock in 2017, going 11-5 with a 3.71 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 2.4 WAR. A tough matchup with the Orioles in OPACY is on tap for Tuesday. Sep.

Nunez showed little sympathy for Sabathia's complaints, detailing what sounded like a half-apology before his next at-bat.

The Red Sox went 1-for-8 with men on base against Sabathia and were 0-for-10 with runners in scoring position. Greg Bird hit a two-run home run to extend the lead - it was only Bird's second hit off a lefty this season - and the Yankees would tack on another run that inning, then another the following frame. Sabathia has long had right knee trouble - he wears a clunky brace on it while pitching - and the Red Sox have been testing him with bunts all season. He also beat Boston for the 15th time since joining NY in 2009 but more importantly improved to 8-0 following a Yankee loss this season.

"I mean, they have a really good lineup".

The starter of the Red Sox Eduardo Rodriguez (4-5) allowed five points in as many innings. He also had help from his defense.

The Yankees couldn't take advantage of free baserunners in the first two innings, Aaron Hicks stopped at third base when he had a decent chance to score in the fifth, and Bird was doubled off second base on a line drive in the seventh. "It's what's made him so great for so long", NY manager Joe Girardi said.

Dustin Pedroia is back from the disabled list (knee). LHP David Price (left elbow inflammation) threw before the game and will throw a bullpen session Friday. As for the Yankees, they acquired Erik Kratz, a 37-year-old catcher, from the Indians (actually, Triple-A Columbus) for backstop insurance with Gary Sanchez and Austin Romine facing suspensions.
