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.
