BOSTON, MA -- Found inside a 6-4 Yankees road win was a superb performance from the bullpen. Shawn Kelley, Adam Warren, Dellin Betances, and David Robertson tossed a combined 4 1/3 innings of two-hit ball, yielding just one run. Inside that? Three triple-digit fastballs from Dellin Betances to Mike Napoli, one clocking a career-high 101 MPH on the Fenway Park radar gun.

"When I get an out, I kind of look back," said Betances. "I saw it and I said 'Oh, wow.'"
