Sunday Sports Update

Top: Boston Red Sox ace Chris Sale (left) looks away as Tyler Austin (right) rounds the bases during the 2nd inning of Saturday's Yankees-Red Sox game at Fenway Park.  Austin hit a three-run home run for New York off the American League's Cy Young frontrunner, and Todd Frazier added a solo blast in the 6th inning as the Yankees held on for a 4-3 victory.  The Bronx Bombers are now back within four games of the Sox for first place in the AL East.  Photos by the Boston Herald and USA Today

Bottom right: Boxing fans are looking forward to next weekend's fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor.  But history was made Saturday night in Lincoln, Nebraska.  Here, Terence Crawford celebrates after knocking out Julius Indongo in the 3rd round of their WBC/WBA/WBO/IBF junior middleweight title fight.  Crawford, who is now 32-0 in his career, becomes the first boxer to claim all four major world titles since 2005.  Photo by Sky Sports
