The Yankees are back in a tie for first place after Jacoby Ellsbury’s walk-off single gave the Red Sox a 4-3 win tonight at Fenway. Jon Lester had a season-high seven walks, but the Yankees didn’t take full advantage. A three-walk, 23-pitch first inning led to just one run, and the Yankees squandering scoring opporunitites until Derek Jeter doubled in a pair of runs for a 3-2 Yankees lead in the sixth. That lead lasted only until Dustin Pedroia homered in the bottom of the sixth, tying the game at 3. Yankees starter Hiroki Kuroda took a no-decision, allowing three runs through 6.1 innings. Joba Chamberlain left the bases loaded in the seventh, certainly his biggest escape of the season.
