Bogaerts, Red Sox Dent Cole, Beat Yanks 6-2 In AL Wild Card

Oct 6, 2021, 10:40 AM

BOSTON (AP) — Xander Bogaerts and Kyle Schwarber homered off Yankees ace Gerrit Cole to help the Boston Red Sox beat New York 6-2 in the AL wild-card game.

Nathan Eovaldi took a shutout into the sixth inning for Boston.

The Red Sox will play the AL East champion Tampa Bay Rays in the best-of-five Division Series starting Thursday night in Florida.

A year after baseball took its postseason into neutral site bubbles to protect against the pandemic, a sellout crowd of 38,324 filled Fenway Park to rekindle one of the sport’s most passionate rivalries.

They saw Boston beat New York in the postseason for the third straight time.
