The American League East might be a two-team race between the Yankees and Rays, but the Red Sox pulled within five games with a 6-3 win tonight at Yankee Stadium. Javier Vazquez walked in a run, couldn’t pitch around a second-inning error and gave up a rookie’s first career home run. Clay Buchholz gave up a first-inning home run, but allowed just one run the rest of the way. The Yankees stayed in first place thanks to the Rays 2-1 loss against Toronto.
