The New York Yankees have responded to Baltimore's extra-innings win over Tampa Bay to rejoin the Orioles on top of the American League East with a 2-0 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Thursday.
Baltimore continued their fairytale run with a 3-2 win earlier on Thursday to take top spot alone when Manny Machado hit a two-out, run-scoring single off Chris Archer in the bottom of the 14th inning to win the game.
But the Yankees continued Boston's horror season with runs in the fourth and seventh innings at Fenway Park to join the Orioles at 81-62 and continue a thrilling chase for the division title.
In the American League Central the top of the division clash between Detroit and the Chicago White Sox was postponed due to rain in Chicago.
