James Paxton threw six-and-two-thirds shutout innings as the New York Yankees beat the Boston Red Sox 5-0 at Fenway Park.

Paxton stuck out seven on the way to his 13th MLB win of the season.  

Austin Romine and Gio Urshela homered for New York, which won its third straight.

Eduardo Rodriguez struck out nine over six innings of one-run ball, but fell to 17-and-6 with the loss.

The Red Sox have dropped three straight and are eliminated from contention in the AL East, which they had won three straight seasons.

Former Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz threw out the first pitch before Monday night's game against the New York Yankees.

It was his first public appearance since June, when he was shot and seriously injured in his native Dominican Republic.

Red Sox and Yankees players stood near their dugouts and applauded as Ortiz was introduced. The fans gave him a rousing ovation as he bounded up the steps of the dugout with no apparent effects from the June 9 assassination attempt in a Santo Domingo nightclub.

Dominican police say it was a case of mistaken identity.
