Jesus Montero drove in four runs, Derek Jeter hit his sixth home run of the season and Freddy Garcia might have solidified his spot in the postseason rotation in a 9-1 Yankees win against the Red Sox this afternoon. Montero was 3-for-4 including a home run. He started the scoring with a bases-loaded single in the second inning, and Jeter’s three-run shot later that inning gave the Yankees an early six-run advantage. Montero’s two-run double chased Red Sox starter Jon Lester, who pitched a season-low 2.2 innings. Garcia cruised with six scoreless, picking up his 12th win while walking one and striking out three.
