A.J. Burnett kept the Yankees in it tonight, and after the team stranded 12 runners in the first six innings, Russell Martin finally had the big hit they needed in a 4-2 win against the Red Sox. The win gave the Yankees two of three in this series, and moved them within a half game of first place in the American League East. Martin’s two-run double in the seventh gave the Yankees the lead, and made up for their in ability to hit with runners in scoring position through most of the game. Burnett allowed two runs through 5.1 innings, the first time he allowed fewer than three runs in a game since the end of July.
