NEW YORK (AP) -The New York Yankees' come-from-behind 6-5 victory over the Boston Red Sox attracted the most households ever to watch a Sunday Night Baseball game on ESPN.
The telecast averaged more than 3.98 million households, the network said Tuesday. It's the fifth-largest audience for a regular season major league game on ESPN.
The previous Sunday night record was another Red Sox-Yankees game earlier this season, when more than 3.95 million households watched the April 22 broadcast.
