The New York Yankees defeated the Boston Red Sox on Saturday afternoon.  The final score was 6-4 and the game took place in Tampa, Florida.  The Yankees used nine pitchers and most of the pitching was good.  Rodriguez led the offense with a couple of hits but Judge and Mateo each hit a homerun.

In the first Brock Holt hit an RBI single giving the Red Sox a 1-0 lead.  In the third Mateo hit a solo homerun to tie the game at one.  In the third Teixeira hit an RBI single to give the Yankees a 2-1 lead.  In the bottom of the fifth Beltran hit an RBI groundout to give the Yankees a 3-1 lead.  In the seventh Judge hit a three run homerun to push the Yankees lead to 6-1.  Brennan Boesch hit a solo homerun in the eighth to cut the lead to 6-2 and Ryan LaMarre hit a two run homerun to cut the lead to 6-4 and that would be the final score. 

The Yankees spring record improved to 2-2 and they will travel to Clearwater, Florida on Sunday afternoon to take on the Philadelphia Phillies.
