A late replacement for A.J. Burnett, Dustin Moseley gave the Yankees 6.1 strong innings and left to a standing ovation tonight at Yankee Stadium. It was one of two standing ovations in a 7-2 Yankees win against the Red Sox. Derek Jeter tipped his helmet at first base after getting career hit No. 2,874, which moved him past Babe Ruth on baseball’s all-time hits list. His 2,875th hit came as part of a five-run fifth inning. The Yankees extended their American League East lead to 2.5 games, their largest lead since July 26.
