The New York Yankees took 5 straight games from their nemesis Boston Red Sox, completing the sweep today with a 2-1 win. They also increased their divison lead to 6 1/2 games.
It's the first time in 55 years, 1951, that the Bronx Bombers swept the BoSox 5 straight!
The last time the Yanks took 5 straight from Boston, in Fenway, was 63 years ago, 1943!
FYI--Both were before I was born.
