Yankees Vs. Red Sox Final Score: New York Loses Game 2 Of Doubleheader, 9-5

The New York Yankees were defeated by the Boston Red Sox on Saturday night, losing by a final score of 9-5.

It was the second game of a doubleheader for the Yankees, who beat Boston earlier in the day 6-1.

New York jumped out to an early lead, scoring three runs in the top of the first inning thanks to a homer by DH Mark Teixeira (his 15th of the season) that scored shortstop Derek Jeter and center fielder Curtis Granderson.

Boston responded in the bottom of the third, when third baseman Mauro Gomez scored despite the Yankees turning a double play off left fielder Daniel Nava. The Red Sox added another run in the fifth inning on a sacrifice fly by second baseman Nick Punto that brought in Pedro Ciriaco, but didn't take the lead until an inning later, when Ciriaco hit an RBI double that scored three. The offensive onslaught continued in the seventh, when the Red Sox tacked on four more runs.

The Yankees hit two more homers as the game progressed, and both were solo shots. The first came courtesy of outfielder Andruw Jones, who belted his tenth of the season in the seventh inning. In the ninth inning, Eric Chavez made the score 9-5 with a home run of his own.

Yankees starting pitcher Phil Hughes was given the loss after allowing ten hits and five runs (three earned) over 5.1 innings of work. Reliever Boone Logan allowed a run, and Cory Wade allowed three more (one earned).

The loss drops the Yankees to 51-33 (26-17 away), while the Red Sox improve to 43-42 on the season. The fourth and final game of the series will take place on Sunday at 8:05 p.m. ET.
