Yankees-Red Sox Score Update: Boston Jumps To 2-0 Lead

The Boston Red Sox drew first blood in their weekend series with the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium, scoring two fourth-inning runs to take a 2-0 lead.

Adrian Gonzalez led off with the eighth home run of the season for Boston. The Red Sox loaded the bases on two walks and a strikeout/passed ball. Carl Crawford drove in the second run with a ground-out. Yankee pitcher Bartolo Colon limited the damage by strking out Jarrod Saltalamacchia with the bases loaded to end the inning.

The Yankees did not get a hit against Boston starter Clay Buchholz in the first three innings. Alex Rodriguez got the Yankees first hit with one out in the fourth inning, singling to left field. Buchholz has already struck out four Yankees.

The Yankees have lost six of their last nine. The Red Sox are still trying to get back to .500 after starting the season 0-6. They are 17-20.
