The Boston Red Sox secured a thrilling 9-3 victory over the New York Yankees on Sunday night, thanks to a remarkable performance by Zack Kelly and a record-breaking nine stolen bases. Kelly expertly escaped a bases-loaded jam in the seventh inning, setting the stage for Connor Wong’s two-run triple that sealed the win.

The Red Sox’s speedsters led the charge, with David Hamilton setting a club record with four stolen bases and Jarren Duran adding two more. Hamilton’s swiftness and agility on the basepaths proved decisive, as he stole second base in the third, second and third in the fifth, and set the club record with his swipe of second in the eighth.

Aaron Judge’s major league-leading 26th homer and Jose Trevino’s solo drive were not enough to overcome the Red Sox’s relentless base running and timely hitting.

Boston starter Kutter Crawford struck out nine Yankees, a career-high, and the team’s first consecutive sellout crowds of the season at Fenway Park were treated to an electrifying performance.

The win marked a triumphant end to the series for the Red Sox, who took two out of three games from the MLB-best Yankees. As Hamilton exclaimed, “It was fun, just a complete fun game!” The Red Sox’s speed and agility on the basepaths proved too much for the Yankees to handle, and they emerged victorious in a game that will be remembered for its thrilling moments and record-breaking feats.
