NY (26-10) has won 17 of its last 18 games after opening the series with a 3-2 victory Tuesday followed by a 9-6 victory Wednesday.

RANGERS 5, TIGERS 4, 10 inn.: In Arlington, Texas, Nomar Mazara led off the 10th inning with his second homer of the game, giving Texas a 5-4 victory over Detroit and its first winning home series this season. Aaron Judge led the Yanks, going 3 for 4 with a home run and three RBIs, while Brett Gardner and Giancarlo Stanton each had a pair of RBIs and a double, with Gardner going 3 for 5 with a pair of doubles.

The Boston Red Sox will look to salvage a win and avoid the sweep after dropping the first two games of the series, including a 9-6 loss in game two on Wednesday.

Brett Gardner capped a slump-busting performance with a go-ahead, two-run triple off Craig Kimbrel in the eighth inning, Aaron Judge followed with a homer and the Yankees rallied to beat Boston 9-6 in the Bronx on Wednesday night for their 17th victory in 18 games.

For the Yankees, it's hard to imagine them playing any better. "They expect to be really good".

"I feel like he's been a bit unlucky", NY manager Aaron Boone said. The 2012 AL Cy Young Award victor signed a $217 million, seven-year contract with the Red Sox in December 2015 but has been slowed by injuries the past two years. Gardner drilled a ball into left-center field, well over the head of center fielder Mookie Betts, who was playing shallow. Ramirez homered in the seventh off Chad Green to put Boston on top 6-5, and has 10 homers against NY pitching since the start of 2016 along with 25 RBIs.

New York's Masahiro Tanaka allowed four runs and eight hits in 5 1/3 innings while Boston's Rick Porcello allowed season highs of five runs and eight hits in 5 1/3 innings. They're up, 4-2, in the bottom of the 4th inning.

Gardner's two-run triple gave the Yankees a one-run, eighth-inning lead, capping off a 3-for-5 night for the Yankee left fielder where he also had two doubles and scored three runs.
