The Yankees handed the Red Sox a surprising defeat today, ending the powerful Red Sox one game winning streak.
The Yankees lucked out with four home runs, none actually leaving the Bay State, while the Sox banged out ten hits, denying Ivan Nova his second win of the year.
Tim Wakefield tossed a pair of scoreless innings and the speedy outfield combination of Jacoby Ellsbury and Carl Crawford now have a combined average of .308.
Jarrod Saltalamacchia threw out Derek Jeter stealing, although the future Hall of Fame shortstop raised his average to .233.
The Yankees no doubt feel fortunate to have evened the season's series.
