String of errors opens door to Red Sox rally

The Yankees really seemed to be on their way to a doubleheader sweep, but four errors in a span of three innings let the Red Sox come from behind for a 9-5 win in tonight’s finale. A dropped fly ball, a bobble by Derek Jeter, a missed grounder by Jayson Nix and a bad throw by Russell Martin helped the Red Sox come back from a 3-1 Yankees lead after four and a half innings. Miscommunication between Curtis Granderson and Darnell McDonald led to the first error, and that opened the flood gates. A fifth error by D.J. Mitchell¬†proved harmless in the eighth.¬†Just as they did in the first game, the Yankees scored all of their runs on home runs, getting a three-run homer from Mark Teixeira and solo shots from Andruw Jones and Eric Chavez. Phil Hughes allowed five runs — three earned — through 5.1 innings.
