Swept: Yankees lose fifth straight

The Yankees took an early lead, then they fell into the same old pattern. Brett Gardner was caught stealing, Alex Rodriguez let a routine ground ball slip through his legs and the Yankees left six runners on base in the final five innings. The Red Sox had the big hits — Kevin Youkilis hit a homer to tie it, David Ortiz hit one to put them in the lead — and the Yankees lost 7-5. It was the Yankees fifth loss in a row, and their ninth loss in the past 12 games. They had not been swept by the Red Sox in a three-game series at home since April of 2004.
