Wacha makes short work of Yankees, Boston wins 3-0 in 2:15

Boston — Michael Wacha pitched seven innings in his return from a shoulder injury, and Rafael Devers homered to lead the last-place Boston Red Sox past the division-leading New York Yankees 3-0.

Tommy Pham had three hits for the Red Sox.

They took two of three from New York.

It’s their first win in a real series against an AL East opponent this season in 13 tries.

New York has lost nine of its last 11 games but still has a double-digit lead in the division.

The Red Sox are seventh in the race for the AL’s three wild-card spots.
