Yankees 9, Red Sox 4: Series Now Even

Russell Martin has caught every inning of every game thus far this season for the New York Yankees. The way he is playing and hitting, he is making it impossible for Manager Joe Girardi to give him a rest.

Martin hit two of New York’s four homers and drove in four runs Saturday as the Yankees earned a 9-4 victory over the Boston Red Sox in the second of a three-game set at Fenway Park.

Robinson Cano and Curtis Granderson also homered for the Yankees, who evened the series after losing 9-6 on Friday. Cano finished 3-for-5 and Eric Chavez contributed three hits with a pair of doubles and a run batted in for New York in his first start of the season.

Clay Buchholz (0-2) took the loss for the second time in as many starts this season. He was tagged for five runs — four earned — on eight hits in 3 2/3 innings. The Red Sox are now just 1-7 on the season.

New York starter Ivan Nova didn’t work the requisite five innings and failed to qualify for a win. He gave up four runs on seven hits and three walks in 4 1/3 innings. David Robertson (1-0) retired all five batters he faced in relief and picked up the victory.
