BOSTON — Despite dismal results against the New York Yankees this season, at least the Boston Red Sox didn’t have to watch their longtime rivals enjoy clinching a playoff berth at Fenway Park.

They made sure of that by finally beating the Yankees this year.

Tanner Houck took a no-hitter into the sixth inning of his second major league start and Michael Chavis had a huge day at the plate as the Red Sox halted two long streaks with a 10-2 victory Sunday.

  Rangers snap 6-game losing streak, beat Angels 7-1 ARLINGTON, Texas — Lance Lynn pitched seven strong innings, Elvis Andrus homered and the Texas Rangers snapped a six-game losing streak with a 7-1 win Tuesday night over the Los Angeles Angels, who had won five in a row. Lynn (5-2), the first major league pitcher to make 10 starts this season, struck out six, walked two and limited the Angels to one run on four hits. The right-hander had lost his previous two starts, allowing 10 runs (nine earned) — more than he had allowed combined his first seven starts. Andrus put the Rangers ahead to stay with a solo shot in the second. They went ahead 3-0 with two unearned runs in the fourth on second baseman Matt Thaiss’ two-out error.

Boston ended New York’s 10-game winning streak and snapped a 12-game skid against the Yankees.

“A great experience. It’s a great rivalry that I remember watching growing up. Being a part of it was amazing,” Houck said. “Going deep into the game like that with a no-hitter is truly an unbelievable experience.”

Chavis hit two homers over the Green Monster and drove in five runs. Jackie Bradley Jr. went 4 for 5, and J.D. Martinez and Bobby Dalbec each had a solo shot.

It was Boston’s first win over the Yankees this season in their last of 10 meetings. New York had matched its longest winning streak against the Red Sox, also winning 12 in a row in 1936 and from 1952-53 when Red Sox Hall of Famer Ted Williams was flying combat missions in the Korean War.

Dodgers beat Padres, become 1st to clinch post-season berth

  Dodgers beat Padres, become 1st to clinch post-season berth SAN DIEGO — The Los Angeles Dodgers became the first team to clinch a playoff spot in the pandemic-shortened season, beating the San Diego Padres 7-5 Wednesday behind Dustin May’s gutty effort out of the bullpen and home runs from AJ Pollock and Chris Taylor. Will Smith drove in three runs for the seven-time defending NL West champion Dodgers, who opened a 3 1/2-game lead in the division by winning two of three in the matchup of the NL’s two best teams. Mookie Betts tied his career high with three stolen bases, had two hits and scored a run. At 35-15, the Dodgers breezed into the expanded 16-team post-season field.

The Yankees’ magic number remained at one to lock up a playoff spot. A loss by Seattle later Sunday would earn them a post-season berth for the fourth straight year. New York stayed 3 1/2 games behind AL East-leading Tampa Bay, which lost 2-1 in Baltimore.

Luke Voit hit his major league-leading 21st homer for the Yankees, who outscored their opponents 85-25 during the winning streak.

In a matchup of right-handed prospects on a breezy afternoon, the 24-year-old Houck mixed a sharp slider, sinker and a fastball in the low-to-mid 90 mph range to keep the Yankees off balance until Tyler Wade lined a double into the right-centre gap.

“Seeing that against a really hot offence like these guys have had, it’s great to see that stuff,” Boston manager Ron Roenicke said.

Houck (2-0) gave up just that one hit and an unearned run. He struck out four and walked three in six innings.

“He’s got good stuff,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. “I thought maybe we expanded a little bit on some pitches off the plate. He did a good job of working his two-seamer in, and then even changeup off of that. But he was tough.”

Yanks hit 5 HR in inning, top Toronto 10-7 for 8-game streak

  Yanks hit 5 HR in inning, top Toronto 10-7 for 8-game streak NEW YORK — Brett Gardner, DJ LeMahieu and Luke Voit homered on consecutive pitches for the New York Yankees -- and that was just the start of the night’s power surge. By the time the Bombers’ barrage was over, the Yankees had hit a record-setting 1.42 miles of home runs in a three-game sweep of the Toronto Blue Jays. The Yankees tied a major league record with five home runs in an inning and hit six overall in a 10-7 win Thursday night that extended their winning streak to eight. “What a show!” Gary Sánchez, who also homered, said through a translator.

In his big league debut at Miami on Tuesday, Houck held the Marlins to two hits over five scoreless innings, striking out seven.

Deivi García (2-2) was roughed up for six runs and eight hits over three innings in his fifth career start. He felt his command was off.

“I battled with that today,” he said through a translator. “It kept me from being as aggressive as I wanted to be.”

With the Red Sox leading 3-0 in the third, Chavis hit a hanging slider that landed in the first row of seats above the Green Monster in left field.

Chavis’ first homer came on a belt-high slider in the second and left Fenway completely.

“Just a bump here for him, but all things he can correct, and go out and do what we’ve seen in his next one,” Boone said about García.

DELAY

There was about a 10-minute delay with the Yankees batting in the eighth when someone started screaming from a camera stand above the centre-field bleachers. They threw something onto the field. The umpires gathered at home plate until the person was removed.

SPECIAL PLACE

García took the mound where his boyhood idol and fellow countryman, Pedro Martínez, spent much of his Hall of Famer career. The 21-year-old righty from the Dominican Republic even has number 45 — the number Martínez wore — written on the front of his belt.

Santana's homer lifts Indians to win, brink of playoff berth .
CLEVELAND — The Indians left Progressive Field on the brink of a playoff berth and went home. The party's on hold. In 2020, little goes as planned. “Everything is awkward this year," acting manager Sandy Alomar Jr. said. “So you can add that to it.” Carlos Santana's two-run homer snapped a fifth-inning tie and José Ramírez homered again as Cleveland moved closer to clinching a post-season spot — and slowed Chicago's push for the AL Central title — with a 7-4 win over the White Sox on Monday night. The Indians, who missed the playoffs a year ago, cut their magic number to one.
