Andruw Jones was a part of back-to-back home runs twice this afternoon. He went deep right after Nick Swisher in the first inning, then right before Jayson Nix in the fourth. The offensive firepower backed another strong start from Freddy Garcia and gave the Yankees a 6-1 win in the first game of today’s doubleheader in Boston. Garcia delivered 6.2 innings, allowing one run while striking out five. Derek Jeter had three hits, Swisher had three RBI and the Yankees will give the ball to Phil Hughes to try to pull off the doubleheader sweep in a few hours.
