Yankees ace C.C. Sabathia got the start, but did not perform well. The All-Star lefty allowed eight hits, two walks, and six runs in six inning of work. However, he did not get the decision, so his record remains 10-3 this season. 

After the Red Sox jumped out to an early 3-0 lead, Yankees catcher Chris Stewart answered in the third inning with a solo home run to get the Yankees on the scoreboard. 

In the fifth inning, Boston increased their lead to 6-1, but Jayson Nix followed in the bottom of the inning with a two run home run for New York. Jeter also had an RBI ground out in the inning to cut the lead down to 6-4. 

Relieving Sabathia was David Phelps. The rookie right-hander then pitched two scoreless innings to keep the Yankees in the game through the seventh and eighth innings. 

In the bottom of the eighth, Mark Teixeira blasted a two run home run off his biggest rival, reliever Vincente Padilla, to tie the game at 6-6. 

However, the Yankees weren't able to keep the momentum, as the Red Sox rallied for two runs in the top of the ninth off Yankees closer Rafael Soriano. The loss was Soriano's first of the year, as he is now 2-1 this season. 

Boston and New York will finish the three game series on Sunday at 8:00 PM ET. Felix Doubront will start for Boston and Hiroki Kuroda will start for New York
