The Yankees beat the Red Sox on 8-3 on Friday night, and it was the team’s best win of the season. DJ LeMahieu led off the game with a single in a seven-pitch, and the rest of the offense followed his lead, scoring three runs in the first and adding four more in the third. A 7-0 lead with Gerrit Cole on the mound is about as well as the Yankees can ever be set up in a game and they were able to coast to a win for the first time in a long time. Given the importance of this series and its impact on the standings and postseason, Friday’s game was easily the Yankees’ best win of the season.
