Their first trip of the season to Fenway Park was significantly tougher than expected but the Yankees rallied from four runs down. Now they seek their season-high 10th straight win Saturday night when they continue a three-game series with the Boston Red Sox.
New York has won nine straight games for the third straight season and is seeking its first 10-game winning streak since June 8-18, 2012.
New York outscored opponents 71-20 during the first eight games, highlighted by becoming the first team to hit at least six homers in three straight games over Toronto before heading to Boston. The Yankees then played the toughest game of their run by pulling out a 6-5 victory Friday on DJ LeMahieu's RBI double in the 12th inning.
