A look at what's happening around the majors on Sunday:

BOSTON BROOMS?

Rafael Devers and the Red Sox go for a three-game sweep at Yankee Stadium in this week’s Sunday night matchup.

Kiké Hernández snapped an 0-for-27 skid with a tiebreaking double in the eighth inning as Boston completed its major league-best 20th come-from-behind victory, beating New York 7-3 Saturday.

The Yankees dropped behind Toronto into fourth place in the AL East. They are 3-9 in their past 12 games, averaging just 2.4 runs.

After going 9-1 against Boston in 2020, the Yankees have dropped the first two of 19 against the second-place Red Sox this year.

Red Sox righty Garrett Richards (4-4, 3.75 ERA) faces righty Domingo Germán (4-3, 3.27) in the finale.
