One of the last regular season matchups for the Yankees on the YES Network scored big numbers last night.

The game against the Red Sox, which put the Yanks in position to secure the AL East, was the most-viewed YES broadcast since September 1, 2011 (also a Red Sox/Yankees game).

The dramatic 12-inning Yankee triumph averaged 698,000 total viewers, with a 6.87 Household rating. The telecast peaked during the 10:00-10:15 p.m. quarter-hour, when  more than 1.1 million total viewers tuned in.
