It took extra innings in the rubber matchup of the Yankees (60-41) and Red Sox (51-51) weekend series and it was the Red Sox who came out on top 3-2 in 10 innings. The Yankees gave Hiroki Kuroda who pitched very well little run support facing Red Sox starter Felix Doubront who pitched just a bit better.

Kuroda went eight innings gave up two runs on seven hits and struck out four. Both runs came in the second inning after Kuroda got himself into trouble.  Ryan Sweeney stepped in with two on and two out and drilled a double to deep left field scoring Adrian Gonzalez and Jason Saltalamacchia putting the Sox up 2-0.

Doubront was strong in his outing going 6 1/3 giving up one run on four hits and striking out eight. The lone run off of Doubront came from a Russell Martin solo home run in the seventh inning. It was Martins 12th home run of the season and put the Yankees within one, 2-1.

In the eighth inning with two outs Andruw Jones drilled a double to left field off of Red Sox reliever Andrew Miller. Bobby Valentine then made the change to bring in the closer Alfredo Aceves. The first batter Aceves faced was Russell Martin who lined a game tying RBI single up the middle.

David Robertson started the 10th inning and immediately allowed a leadoff walk to Saltalamacchia and a single to Will Middlebrooks putting runners at first and second with no one out. Ryan Sweeney grounded into a fielder’s choice putting runners on the corners with one out which led to a Pedro Ciriaco RBI single putting the Red Sox up 3-2.

Aceves shut the Yankees down in the bottom of the tenth earning him the win (2-6). David Robertson was the losing pitcher (1-4).
