10 count: The Yankees have scored at least 10 runs five times this season — three times against the Red Sox.
More Yankees vs. Red Sox: The Yankees are 6-1 vs. Boston, their best start against the Red Sox since 1994 when the start was also 6-1. The Yankees have won nine of the last 11 games against them overall.
Streaking: Robinson Cano has a 13-game hitting streak against Boston.
Milestone watch: Ichiro needs one homer for career No. 100.
Update, 6:15: Sabathia gives up three straight hits with one out, 1-0 Sox.
Update, 6:18: Sabathia throws a fastball right down the middle to Middlebrooks, two-run double to the left-center gap, 3-0.
Update, 6:29: 1-2-3 first for Lester.

Update, 7:11: Sabathia throws a hitless, one-walk fourth.
Update, 7:23: Teixeira gets the Yankees’ second hit with a single, but Cano lines into an inning-ending double play. Lester is looking good after delivering the worst performance by a Boston pitcher since 1983 last time out, allowing 11 earned runs in four innings against Toronto.

Update, 7:45: Nix gets the Yankees to down three with a two-run homer to the short porch in right.
Update, 7:51: Lester is suddenly struggling. Walk, single by Ichiro, sacrifice, Jeter RBI ground out, it’s 6-4.
Update, 8:14: Lester settles down again, 1-2-3 sixth. David Phelps will replace Sabathia for the seventh.
Update, 8:23: Ichiro showed off his speed, running down a drive to right-center by Gonzalez to end the Boston seventh.

Update, 8:33: Albers does his job, 1-2-3.
Update, 8:44: Phelps gives up a single in the eighth and strikes out the side. Teixeira’s good friend, Vicente Padilla, is on for the eighth. Ibanez will bat for Stewart.
Update, 8:47: Single for Ibanez.
Update, 8:52: Granderson just misses foul with the tying two-run homer, then goes down swinging. Teixeira would love to tie it against his arch enemy.
Update, 8:55: Teixeira ties it against his arch enemy, lingered slowly near the plate to watch it fly out.
