BOSTON -- Didi Gregorius hit a solo home run, CC Sabathia pitched six scoreless innings and the New York Yankees beat the Boston Red Sox 3-0 in the first game of Sunday's doubleheader at Fenway Park.
Gregorius' homer was his 11th of the season. Ji-Man Choi and Ronald Torreyes drove in one run apiece as New York (47-42) won its second straight after Saturday's 4-1 win in 16 innings.
Sabathia (8-3) allowed two hits and issued a season-high five walks. He struck out three to move within seven of Cy Young's 2,799 for 20th place on MLB's career strikeouts list.
