The Red Sox completed the sweep of their three-game set against the Yankees Sunday night taking the finale of the season series 9-2.

The Sox finish the season series 13-6 against the Yankees winning the series for just the second time since 2005. The 13 wins match the most against the Yankees in a season by any team since the 1976 Orioles went 13-5.

The win combined with the Rays’ loss to the Twins Sunday afternoon moves the Sox closer to clinching the division with their Magic Number at 4.

Clay Buchholz struggled with some command but was able to go six innings giving up just one run no earned runs on two hits and four walks with three strikeouts a wild pitch and a hit batter. He threw 91 pitches 53 for strikes improving to 11-0 lowering his ERA from 1.61 to 1.51.

The right-hander needed 22 pitches 14 strikes to get through the first inning. Buchholz walked lead-off batter Curtis Granderson then allowed him to advance to third on Buchholz’s errant pick-off attempt. Alex Rodriguez’s groundout scored Granderson with Buchholz’s own error accounting for the unearned run.

In two starts since returning from the disabled list Buchholz has given up just one unearned run over 11 innings with five hits four walks and nine strikeouts.
