BOSTON -- Christian Vazquez hit a two-run homer over the Green Monster to break a seventh-inning tie Sunday night, sending the Boston Red Sox to an 8-7 victory over the New York Yankees and a three-game sweep of their archrivals.
Alex Rodriguez homered for the third time in four games and added a two-run double for the Yankees, who have lost a season-high five in a row.
Dellin Betances relieved Ivan Nova (1-1) with one on and two outs in the seventh, but Vazquez hit the first pitch over the left-field wall for his first homer of the year, and just the second of his major league career.
Nathan Eovaldi, who took a no-hitter into the seventh inning at Texas in his previous start, gave up hits to the first two batters on Sunday as the Red Sox took a 1-0 lead in the first.
Rodriguez drove in two more runs in the fifth and then scored to make it 6-4 on Mark Teixeira's single. But Boston again answered, this time on Shaw's two-run homer that tied it 6-all.
It stayed that way until Shaw singled off Nova with one out in the seventh. Brock Holt replaced Shaw on the bases with a fielder's choice, then Betances replaced Nova.
Yankees: OF Aaron Hicks, who missed six games with left shoulder bursitis, returned as a pinch-hitter on Saturday and was back in the starting lineup in right field. He went 0 for 3.
Red Sox: Relief pitcher Carson Smith is expected to be activated Tuesday before the series opener against the White Sox. He went on the disabled list with a strained right flexor muscle as of March 25.
The Yankees are off Monday before playing three games in Baltimore beginning Tuesday.
The Red Sox are off Monday and open a three-game series in Chicago on Tuesday.
