Red Sox wrecking crew does it again, beats Yanks 13-9

The Yankees have scored 25 runs the last three days, with no victories to show for it.

That’s because the Red Sox bashed their way to another win Saturday, hitting four homers in a 13-9 game. They’ve scored 34 runs so far in the series and 54 in their last four games.

The 34 runs is the most scored in three straight days by a single visiting team in the history of Yankee Stadiums, according to The Associated Press. The last time a team scored more against the “Yankees” in New York was in 1912, when the Red Sox played the Highlanders at Hilltop Park.

Mike Napoli, who had a streak of nine straight plate appearances reaching base snapped when he lined out to short in the third, hit two of the homers today. Jonny Gomes also went deep, and young Xander Bogaerts hit the first of his career.

It was another brutal day for the Yankees. Derek Jeter joined relievers David Robertson and Boone Logan as the third player to get hurt in the series. He left the game in the sixth inning with soreness around his surgically repaired left ankle.

The Red Sox totaled 10 runs for the 17th time this season, which is tied with the Cardinals and Tigers for the most in baseball. They lead the majors with 754 runs scored, 31 more than Detroit.

Boston will have to try to keep it going against Hiroki Kuroda when it attempts the four-game sweep on Sunday. Jon Lester will start for the Red Sox.
