Mark Teixeira drove in four runs in a Fenway Park slugfest as the A.L. East leading Yankees topped the rival-Red Sox 10-8 on Friday night. 

The two starters, Hiroki Kuroda and Josh Beckett, each allowed five first-inning runs, giving up a combined 18 hits and 13 runs with neither making it through six innings.

With Boston ahead 7-6 in the seventh, the Yankees picked apart the Sox’s bullpen. Curtis Granderson worked a walk and Alex Rodriguez singled off Andrew Miller. Teixeira’s cashed in both runs with a triple into the triangle in center field off Vicente Padilla. Raul Ibanez followed with an RBI double, then scored on an Eric Chavez single off Scott Atchison to make it 10-7 Yanks.

Rafeal Soriano got the final four outs, striking out two for his 20th save.

Alex Rodriguez had three hits, scored twice and drove in a run. Derek Jeter, Curtis Granderson, Teixeira and Ibanez had two hits apiece.

For Boston, David Ortiz and Adrian Gonzalez each had three hits and an RBI, while Jarred Saltalamacchia drove in three with a first inning bomb off Kuroda.

The Yankees and Red Sox will play a day/night doubleheader on Saturday with the first pitch scheduled for 12:35 p.m .
