When Ivan Nova finally stumbled, the Yankees offense was there to pick him up. Nova flirted with danger throughout his 4.1 innings this afternoon, and when that thin ice finally cracked in a three-run fourth inning, the Yankees offense picked up the slack in a 9-4 win at Fenway. The Yankees scored seven runs and hit four homers — two by Russell Martin — in a four-inning span from the fourth through the seventh. Dave Robertson, Joba Chamberlain and Luis Ayala kept the Red Sox scoreless in the late innings.
