Yankees Defeat Red Sox 3-2 to Move Into Sole Possession of First

The New York Yankees defeated the Boston Red Sox 3-2 for their eighth straight victory and moved into sole possession of first place in the American League East Division for the first time since July 6.

Curtis Granderson had a run-scoring single and Nick Swisher added a run-scoring double as the Yankees scored all their runs in the sixth inning to overcome a 2-0 deficit last night at Boston’s Fenway Park.

Boone Logan, the second of six New York pitchers, threw one inning for the victory. Mariano Rivera pitched the ninth, striking out two, for his 29th save.

New York is 69-42. The Red Sox dropped to 68-43 with their second straight home loss.

In other American League games, it was Toronto 5, Baltimore 4; Detroit 4, Kansas City 3 in 10 innings; Tampa Bay 8, Oakland 4; the Chicago White Sox 5, Minnesota 3; Texas 8, Cleveland 7 in 11 innings, and the Los Angeles Angels defeating the Seattle Mariners 1-0 in 10 innings.

Dan Uggla extended his hitting streak to 26 games with a two-run single as the Atlanta Braves won 4-1 at the New York Mets, who lost their fifth straight game and fell below .500 at 55-56.

Craig Counsell singled as a pinch-hitter in the ninth inning for the Milwaukee Brewers in their 8-1 win at Houston, breaking his 0-for-45 slump and getting his first hit since June 10. The Major League Baseball record is 46 consecutive at-bats without a hit, set in 1909 by Bill Bergen of the Brooklyn Superbas.

The Chicago Cubs won 4-3 at home against the Cincinnati Reds; the San Diego Padres won 15-5 at Pittsburgh; St. Louis defeated Florida 3-2; the Los Angeles Dodgers won 7-4 at Arizona; the Philadelphia Phillies won 9-2 for their second straight win at the San Francisco Giants in a rematch of last year’s National League Championship Series, and Washington won 5-3 at Colorado.

Rockies pitcher Juan Nicasio was hit in the head with a line drive in the second inning and was taken from the field on a stretcher. The Rockies announced during the eighth inning that Nicasio was resting comfortably while undergoing tests at a hospital.
