NEW YORK — For two days in a row, Red Sox manager John Farrell made out his lineup and didn’t include Andrew Benintendi. The rookie left fielder wasn’t injured or tired. Brock Holt was simply a better choice at the time.

Holt got on base three times on July 31 and the Sox beat the Cleveland Indians. He got on base two more times the next day and the Sox won again.

When Benintendi was released from the dugout on Aug 3, he doubled in his first at-bat and hasn’t stopped hitting since. Benintendi belted a pair of three-run home runs on Saturday, carrying the Red Sox to a 10-5 victory against the Yankees before a crowd of 47,241 at the Stadium.

BOX SCORE:  RED SOX 10, YANKEES 5

After a discouraging loss on Friday night, the Sox battered their rivals with 12 hits. Now they will send Chris Sale to the mound against Yankees rookie Jordan Montgomery on Sunday night with a chance to win the series.

The Sox again lead the American League East by 4 ½ games.

Since his two-day break, Benintendi is 15 of 31 with three doubles, four home runs, 11 RBIs, 10 runs, and five stolen bases. His OPS has climbed from .748 to .807 in eight games.

Remarkably, Benintendi is the first Red Sox player to hit two three-run home runs against the Yankees since Hall of Famer Jimmie Foxx in 1938.

The Sox have won nine of their last 10 games, scoring 64 runs and hitting 15 home runs. They are 3-1 on a road trip that ends Sunday.

It’s time for the Yankees think about pulling Aroldis Chapman

  It’s time for the Yankees think about pulling Aroldis Chapman Something hasn't been quite right with Aroldis Chapman all season, and now it's official: the Yankees have a closer crisis on their hands. They were fortunate to survive a wild, messy outing on Friday night, with help from some dumb base running by the Red Sox, but on Sunday night Chapman cost them dearly.

Chapman stinks up Fenway with a blown save. The Yankee infield botches two plays contributing to a dismal inning resulting in the loss. The Yankees drop to

For the sake of argument — when it comes to Red Sox - Yankees , who doesn’t love a good debate? — and as a way to highlight just how evenly matched these teams could be for the foreseeable future, let’s home in on a pair of rookie outfielders, Andrew Benintendi and Aaron Judge

Drew Pomeranz allowed a two-run homer to Gary Sanchez in the first inning before the run support enabled him to work 6⅔ innings for the win. He allowed three runs on seven hits.

The Sox scored five runs off LuisE Severino in the third inning and five more in the fifth. Poor defense by the Yankees played a role both times.

Christian Vazquez worked a one-out walk in the third, seeing nine pitches from Severino. Jackie Bradley Jr. then saw six more pitches and also walked.

When Eduardo Nunez grounded to third base, the Yankees had a chance for a double play. But Todd Frazier fumbled the ball and the bases were loaded.

The Red Sox capitalized on the mistake. Mookie Betts grounded a single into left field and two runs scored. Benintendi then homered to right center.

Severino struck out the side in the fourth inning and the Yankees got a run back in the bottom of the inning when the ghost of Jacoby Ellsbury grounded to first base with the bases loaded.

Yankees - Red Sox at Yankee Stadium always is a big stage, and Benintendi has four homers in his first four games in the Bronx, three so far this weekend in two games. His two blasts Saturday came against Yankees ace Luis Severino

At 5-3, it was a game. That didn’t last long. Nunez singled to open the fifth inning and went to third when Betts doubled down the line in left. Benintendi then hit a low fastball deep into the bleachers in right field, a David Ortiz-like shot.

Mitch Moreland doubled with one out before Xander Bogaerts reached on a throwing error by shortstop Didi Gregorius. That was it for Severino.

Facing Giovanny Gallegos, rookie Rafael Devers followed with a two-run double to center field that was clocked at 109.5 m.p.h.

Severino (9-5) was charged with 10 runs, eight earned. He had faced the Sox twice previously this season, allowing one run over 14 innings.

Pomeranz retired 10 of the final 13 batters he faced before handing the game off to the bullpen in the seventh inning. He is 12-4 with a 3.39 earned run average.

In his last 11 starts, Pomeranz is 6-0 with a 2.42 ERA. He also improved to 3-1 with a 1.74 ERA in four career appearances at Yankee Stadium.
