The Yankees nearly had the sweep. After six different relievers combined for seven scoreless innings, Scott Proctor allowed a game-winning, three-run home run in the 14th inning, letting the Red Sox get away with a 7-4 win in the second game of today’s doubleheader. The Yankees managed just six hits, and missed their best chances to win when Austin Romine struck out with the bases loaded in the ninth and Brett Gardner struck out with runners at second and third in the 13th. The homer was Ellsbury’s third of the day. He went deep twice in the first game.
