The Yankees seemed in for a blowout loss. They instead picked up an emotional win. Rallying from a nine-run deficit, the Yankees beat the Red Sox 15-9 this afternoon at Fenway Park. Sparked by six RBIs apiece from Nick Swisher and Mark Teixeira, the Yankees scored all 15 runs between the sixth and eighth innings. Swisher had a grand slam in the seventh, then hit a go-ahead double in the eighth. The comeback took a little less than an hour and a half, stunning the Fenway crowd that seemed sure to see a Red Sox win after Freddy Garcia lasted just an inning and two hits.
