    BOSTON Under the lights at Fenway Park on Saturday, the Yankees shut down the Red Sox, cruising to an 8-0 victory.It wasn't just New York's 10th win in a row. The Bombers have now won 12-consecutive Willie McGee Jersey games against the club's arch nemesis and division rival. That ties a franchise record, a feat that's only been accomplished twice before in Yankees history.New York hasn't lost to the Red Sox since Sept. 6, 2019. Last time the Yankees won a dozen games in a row against Boston was from August of 1952 to April of 1953. A stretch from 1927 to 1936 is the only other instance where the Yankees Blank Jersey have dominated the rivalry to this extent."Its always fun beating those guys," Yankees' manager Aaron Boone said after the shutout. "We obviously respect who they are and all the great games weve played against them. Enjoy it while it lasts."Taking the streak one step further, the Bombers have now won 17 of their last 18 against the Red Sox since July 28, 2019. Pure one-sided domination.Ask Boone how his squad has been able to have the upper hand so frequently of late and the skipper modestly accredited the run to luck and "aberration.""Its a collection of a few series where obviously they havent quite been the same team this year with some of the guys theyve lost and some of the guys in their pitching staff that theyve lost due to injury and I think this year I know weve played them at some times when weve been playing well," Boone explained.He cited Friday night's 12-inning Ken Boyer Jersey marathon win and a late-inning comeback against the Sox at Yankee Stadium earlier this summer as two examples of "stolen" wins as well.Scroll to Continue"That rivalry can kick up at any time," Boone added. "This is such a shortened season that the little winning streak we have against them. I dont think it nece sarily takes anything away from the rivalry moving forward."Speaking of having a team's number, Yankees' left-hander J.A. Happ continues to pitch well against the Red Sox. The southpaw delivered arguably the best single outing by a Yankees starting pitcher this season, shoving eight scorele s innings, striking out nine and permitted four scattered base hits.Happ is now 13-4 against Boston in his career. In eight starts against the Red Sox with the Yankees, the 14-year veteran has a spotle s 6-0 record with a sparkling Chris Carpenter Jersey 2.39 ERA.On offense, New York was driven by a three-hit performance from left fielder Clint Frazier.Taking full advantage of an opportunity to start in the outfield, even after sluggers Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton have returned from injury, Frazier went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run to the opposite field and an RBI single.New York will look to set a new franchise record of 13 wins in a row on Sunday afternoon with rookie right-hander Deivi Paul Goldschmidt Jersey Garca on the mound."We are aware of that number actually," Happ said. "Were excited to get out there tomorrow and try to take the nod there."
