Rob Refsnyder and the New York Yankees take the final game against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park by the final of 8-6.

The rookie, New York Yankees second-baseman Rob Refsnyder, had himself a day to remember.

Not only did he pick up his first MLB hit, he smashed his first career home run over the Green Monster in the top of the ninth-inning. The two-run blast proved to be the ultimate difference in the 8-6 victory over the Boston Red Sox.

Nate Eovaldi collected his ninth-win of the season with a workmanlike effort: five-innings, three-hits and three-earned runs allowed.

Brian McCann also chipped in with his own Green Monster home run:

The Yankees head into the MLB All-Star break with a 48-40 record having winning seven of their last 10 games. They currently sit 3.5 games ahead of the second place Tampa Bay Rays.
