Shock Your Sox Off; Yanks Rally From 9-Run Deficit

After spoiling Boston’s Fenway Park 100-year celebration on Friday, the New York Yankees did something much more devastating to a Red Sox team that is off to an awful start. New York rallied from a 9-0 sixth inning deficit to score 15 unanswered runs in a 15-9 win on Saturday.

During one stretch from the sixth through eight innings, the pinstripes scored all 15 runs in  23 at-bats: one run in the sixth, seven in the seventh and seven more in eighth.

It ties the Yankee franchise record for comebacks – they’ve done it nine times in history, and this was the third time against the Red Sox.

Mark Texeira had a two-homer, six-RBI day, Nick Swisher six-RBI of his own on three hits, Russell Martin drove in a pair and Derek Jeter had one as well.

Texeira’s solo-blast in the sixth was the only run scored off Boston starter Felix Doubront, who threw six innings for four-hit, one-run ball. Most of New York’s damage was done against Vincente Padilla and Alfredo Aceves, who combined for six hits, five walks and ten earned runs while retiring just one batter.

Freddy Garcia wasn’t much better. He went 1 2/3 innings surrendering seven hits and five earned runs.

C.C. Sabathia (1-0) takes the hill on Sunday night as the Yanks look for a sweep against Daniel Bard (2-0).
