After the Red Sox celebrated the 100th anniversary of Fenway Park, the Yankees celebrated a 6-2 win against their Boston rivals. When a lengthy pregame ceremony came to an end, Ivan Nova extended his winning streak to 15 consecutive decisions, the second-longest such streak in Yankees history. Derek Jeter passed Dave Winfield on baseball’s all-time hits list, Alex Rodriguez passed Ken Griffey Jr. on baseball’s all-time home run list and Eric Chavez homered in his first two at-bats. Nova pitched six innings, striking out five and walking none. After scoreless innings from Cody Wade and Dave Robertson, the Yankees tried to close out the game with Cody Eppley, but after a leadoff single in the ninth, Mariano Rivera came in to finish off the win.
