Yankees Vs. Red Sox Final Score: New York 7, Boston 3

The New York Yankees had the opportunity to take three out of four against the struggling Boston Red Sox on Sunday night at Fenway Park. They took advantage of it.

The Bronx Bombers knocked around Boston starting pitcher Jon Lester, who gave up five runs (four earned) in just 4 1/3 innings on nine hits and two walks. From there, the Yankees relied on the own starter to take them home, which he most certainly did.

New York received a terrific outing from winning pitcher Ivan Nova (10-3), who only allowed two runs in six solid innings of work. Nova also kept the Red Sox off balance , striking out 10 while looking dominant at times.

The Yankees got multi-hit nights from Derek Jeter, Curtis Granderson, Mark Teixeira, Nick Swisher and Andruw Jones. Jones continued his torrid hitting as of late with a two-run homer in the seventh, giving him 11 on the campaign.

The Yankees head off to a short vacation comfortably ahead in the AL East with a seven-game lead over the Baltimore Orioles.

Yankees (51-33) Vs. Red Sox (43-42) Preview: Game Time, TV Schedule, Probable Pitchers

What a better way to cap off a solid first half of the 2012 MLB season then to knock off a long-time rival in a four-game set in its home park. That's exactly what the New York Yankees will get a chance to do Sunday night, when they face the Boston Red Sox in the finale of the series at Fenway Park (8:05 p.m. ET on ESPN).

Sophomore pitcher Ivan Nova (9-3, 4.05 ERA) will take the mound for the Yankees, who took Game 1 on Friday and the first contest of a day-night doubleheader on Saturday. Nova will oppose Boston's Jon Lester (5-5, 4.33 ERA), who will try and help his team enter the All-Star break on the plus side of the .500 mark.

A victory for the Red Sox would also help them not lose anymore ground to first-place New York, which now is 8.5 games ahead of Boston in the AL East Division standings.

Yankees Vs. Red Sox Final Score: Yankees Win Game 1 Slugfest 10-8

The New York Yankees defeated the Boston Red Sox by a final score of 10-8 on Friday night, taking the victory in an offense heavy game where neither team's starter saw the sixth inning.

The Yankees got to Josh Beckett early, loading the bases in the first after Derek Jeter and Curtis Granderson reached on singles and Alex Rodriguez was hit by a pitch. Robinson Cano walked to score a run, Mark Teixeira singled to knock in two runs, and Nick Swisher and Eric Chavez picked up an RBI each with sacrifice flies. That left it 5-0 after the top of the first, but the Red Sox answered right back with five runs of their own, making it 5-5 after one. Both teams added another run in the second, and Boston added another in the fifth to take a 7-6 lead.

The seventh inning would prove to be decisive. Boston used three pitchers, but that wasn't enough to stop the Yankees from scoring four runs. Teixeira picked up two more RBI on a triple, Raul Ibanez scored him with a double, and Chavez scored Ibanez with a single. That proved to be all it took, as all Boston would get in the remaining innings was a solo home run from Cody Ross. Boone Logan gets the win for New York, improving to 4-0. Rafael Soriano got the final four outs to earn his 20th save.

The Yankees improve to 50-32 with the win. The teams play a day-night doubleheader on Saturday..
