Adrian Gonzalez had a sacrifice fly during the seventh-inning rally, which

snapped a 2-2 tie. The Yankees scored a run in each of the last two innings,

but couldn’t get the equalizer against Boston’s bullpen.

Clay Buchholz (4-3) pitched seven innings for the win, giving up two runs on

five hits and a walk with seven strikeouts. Daniel Bard and Jonathan Papelbon

both gave up a run, but Papelbon stranded a runner in the ninth for his sixth

save.

The Red Sox snapped a two-game losing streak after being swept in a brief

series in Toronto and moved to 3-1 against the Yankees this season. Gonzalez

also had a solo homer in the victory.

Bartolo Colon (2-2) took the loss after allowing three runs — two earned –

on five hits and three walks in six-plus innings, striking out four in his

11th career loss to the Red Sox.

Russell Martin hit a two-run homer for the Yankees, who were coming off their

first home series loss to Kansas City since 1999. They have dropped three

games in a row.
