The summer of the Red Sox and Yankees’ American League East battle continues and so far the Red Sox are winning. They shutout Texas 5-0 for their 7th straight win and increased their lead.

The Yankees split a doubleheader with Baltimore, so the Sox gained a half game in the standings and lead the Pinstripes by 2 1/2 games in the AL East.

J.D. Martinez hammered a three run homer, his league leading 28th, and newly acquired Steve Pearce hit a two run shot in the first inning. On the mound, Eduardo Rodriguez won his 11th game of the season.
