James Paxton, known as the scorching hot ace for the New York Yankees, unleashed his full capabilities on Monday night against the Boston Red Sox. Big Maple pitched a solid 6.2 innings, allowing 4 hits, no runs and struck out 7 batters on 107 pitches. Just as Paxton remained consistent, Zack Britton, Cory Gearrin and Tyler Lyons continued to dominant and shutout the Sox. Quite fitting that the only time this season the Sox have been shutout in Fenway was tonight. Oh, and the Yankees were responsible for this devastating travesty.

Austin Romine, who went 2 for 2 with 2 walks and 1 homer, started off the scoring process with a bang. In the top of the 5th, Romine clobbered a solo shot to right field, traveling 389-feet with an exit velocity of 101.2 MPH.



The Yanks tacked on a 3-run rally in the top of the 7th, with Gio Urshela, DJ LeMahieu and Gleyber Torres committing the punching. Urshela, without skipping a beat, demolished a solo shot over the Green Monster, traveling 324-feet with an exit velocity of 97.5 MPH. LeMahieu, known as the machine, smoked an RBI single into right field. Torres finished off the inning with a sacrifice fly  deep enough to bring Aaron Judge home.

In the top of the 9th, Luke Voit recorded the final run of the game for the Yanks. With the bases loaded and 1 out, a struggling Voit ripped an RBI single into left field. Lyons, who has an enormous 7.71 ERA, made quick work of the Sox in the bottom of the 9th, striking out 1 batter in the process. Urshela, who has been a highlight maniac with the leather this season, executed another impressive play and lifted the Yanks to a 5-0 victory.

The Red Sox are now 8.0 games back from clinching a Wild Card spot and officially eliminated from obtaining 1st in the AL East. The Bronx Bombers possess a 95-50 (.655) record and are tied with the Houston Astros for the best record in the league. The remaining games left in September will prove to be bitter between the Astros and Yankees, who are constantly battling each other for home-field advantage in October.
