Bradley's heroics and a lock-down performance by the Boston bullpen gave the Red Sox the rubber match of the teams' three-game series, extending their lead over the Yankees in the American League East to five games.
The Boston Red Sox have opened up their American League East-leading lead to five games as they defeated the second-place New York Yankees 5-1 on Sunday. This could prove vital as the Red Sox head towards the back-end of the season, as the need to keep the bullpen fresh is important to achieve success.

LeBron James and Martina Navratilova, among others, have used Twitter to strongly criticize Trump's shifting comments about the protests in Charlottesville, and another National Basketball Association star, Kevin Durant, said he would skip a possible visit by the league champion Warriors to the White House because "I don't respect who's in office right now".
Here are five takeways from the Yankees-Red Sox series, which ended with the Yankees' 5-1 loss on Sunday.
DETROIT - Yu Darvish has been placed on the 10-day disabled list after just three starts for the Los Angeles Dodgers.
"A mix of different pitches, nothing, in particular, was really on fire", said Porcello."The walks were a little concerning, but we were able to pitch out of it". We'll probably talk about it over a beer later down the road in a couple years.
