Last night the Yankees won an emotional game here at Fenway Park. Tonight, the Red Sox struck back. Two-run homers by Jacoby Ellsbury and Jason Varitek carried Boston to a 9-5 lead in the second game of this three-game series. The Yankees had a one-run lead in the middle of the sixth, but that went away quickly. Phil Hughes, possibly pitching for his spot in the rotation, gave up six runs on eight hits through 5.2 innings. Derek Jeter was the only Yankee with more than one hit.
