Starlin Castro keyed New York’s three-run fourth inning with an RBI double that scored Didi Gregorius from first base. No. 9 batter Austin Romine and Jacoby Ellsbury each added a run-scoring single with two outs off Price, who gave up 11 hits in 5 2/3 innings as the Yankees prevented a three-game sweep.

Following his team’s loss on Saturday, manager Joe Girardi said the Yankees needed to turn things around immediately and called Sunday night “probably as important (a) game that we’ve had in July in a long time.”

New York (45-46) responded with excellent pitching and a handful of timely hits.

Price (9-7) had only one strikeout following three consecutive outings with 10.

Tanaka (7-2) fanned seven with one walk over six innings of three-hit ball.
