Mookie Betts had three hits and an RBI, David Ortiz drew a walk and Yoenis Cespedes had three hits and an RBI.  Mike Napoli had two RBI and drew two walks, Daniel Nava had two hits, three RBI and drew a walk and Xander Bogaerts had four hits and two RBI.  David Ross drew two walks, Cespedes and Bogaerts each hit a double, Cespedes hit a triple and Nava, Bogaerts and Betts each hit a homerun.  The Red Sox were 4-11 with runners in scoring position and left ten men on base.  Middlebrooks committed an error and Cespedes had an outfield assist. 

The Red Sox jumped right out to the lead in the first inning.  Cespedes had an RBI double and Napoli hit a sacrifice fly.  In the third Nava hit a three run homerun to make it 5-0 and Bogaerts hit a solo homerun to push the lead to 6-0.  In the third Prado hit a solo homerun to cut the lead to 6-1.  Betts hit a solo homerun in the fourth to push the lead to 7-1.  In the fifth Cervelli had an RBI walk and Jeter had an RBI single.  Gardner with the bases loaded and two outs struck out and then was thrown out after arguing balls and strikes.  That was a huge moment in the game as it should of been a ball and a 3-2 count but it wasn't.  Napoli hit a sacrifice fly and Bogaerts hit an RBI single in the ninth and it was 9-3.  The Yankees added a run on a McCann solo homerun in the ninth to make it 9-4 and that was the final score.  The Yankees have now lost three games in a row.  The two teams will play game two of three on Wednesday night.
