Red Sox Stomp New York, 14-6
The Boston Red Sox rolled to a 14-6 victory over New York last night, exploding with 10 runs in the first three innings.
Rico Petrocelli launched the attack in the second inning with his third homer this year, a blast which cleared the screen high above the left field wall.
The Red Sox, posting their fourth consecutive triumph, jumped on New York starter Dick Tidrow for four runs in the second inning and nailed down the decision with six more in the third against Dave Pagan and Sam McDowell.
McDowell walked three consecutive batters with the bases loaded after relieving Pagan with two out in the third.
Bill Lee defeated the Yankees for the seventh time in as many career decisions against New York but needed relief from Diego Segui in the eighth to clinch the victory.
