Phew. The Yankees escaped Fenway Park with a win on Sunday night, avoiding a sweep in the process. The team held the suddenly-hot Red Sox offense to four runs, while at the same time capitalized on Boston’s bevy of mistakes. Hopefully that puts a close to the rough stretch the Yankees have gone through of late.

We’ll have a full recap up later, but for now, here are some highlights:

Winner of the Game

It feels like every season Austin Romine has a random, huge home run. The 2019 installment came tonight, as Romine’s third-inning home run off Chris Sale traveled 446 feet. The moonshot had an exit velocity of 111 mph, too. Romine crushed it and gave the Bombers an early lead. Sir Didi Gregorius hit a two-run homer of his own off Sale in the fourth inning. Dingers are fun and great, never forget it.

Honorable mentions: Domingo German, Cameron Maybin’s speed, Yankees capitalizing on errors

Loser of the Game

After all the handwringing from this weekend, let’s have a positivity-filled night. Nobody loses here.

Honorable mentions: If we’re going with anyone, it’s Zack Britton and Aroldis Chapman.
