Yankees complete sweep of Red Sox in London Series

The New York Yankees completed a sweep of the Boston Red Sox in the London Series on Sunday.

New York took down their longstanding rivals with two impressive offensive outings. The latest was a 12-8 win over Boston.

The Yankees took the lead with nine runs in the seventh and never looked back. DJ LeMahieu finished three for six with two RBIs.

New York had to come back after falling behind early. Boston put up four runs in the first inning but the Yankees quickly strung together a pair of their own to cut their deficit in half before their breakout seventh inning.

Didi Gregorius added an insurance run in the eighth and extended the team's home run streak to 31 consecutive games.

"I am trying not to get too excited about this, but [this team] is really ...  good," CC Sabathia said, via the New York Post. "It can be a Yankee team people talk about a long time if we finish it off right."

The Yankees improved to 54-28 with the win while the Red Sox dropped to 44-40.


Fabulous Freddie

Freddie Freeman set a club record for the Atlanta Braves with his 33rd RBI in June.

Madison Bumgarner threw seven innings, allowing four hits and just one earned run for the San Francisco Giants. He struck out nine against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Joc Pederson had three hits and three RBIs in the Los Angeles Dodgers' 10-5 win over the Colorado Rockies.


Miserable Mariners

Daniel Vogelbach and Kyle Seager did not deliver for the Seattle Mariners. The two were both 0 for four in the team's 6-1 loss to the Houston Astros. 


Marvellous Manny

The San Diego Padres' Manny Machado hit a home run in the first inning against the St Louis Cardinals for his third homer in the past 24 hours.

Jason Heyward stretched out for an impressive catch.
