Offense backs Pettitte with another big night

Last time the Yankees came to this homer-friendly ballpark, they managed to play three games without a home run. “It’s a different lineup that we’re running out,” manager Joe Girardi said. That much was clear early, and two home runs in the first three innings carried the Yankees to a 10-3 win against the rival Red Sox. Mark Reynolds and Alfonso Soriano — neither of whom was with the Yankees a month ago — each went deep. Soriano’s was his sixth homer in as many games, and Reynolds’ came in his first at-bat with the team. That early offense helped Andy Pettitte get his first win since July 11. In his finest start in at least a month, Pettitte allowed three unearned runs through 6.2 innings. To fully put the game away, the Yankees added three insurance runs in the ninth. Soriano, Reynolds, Brett Gardner, Eduardo Nunez, Alex Rodriguez and Chris Stewart each finished with multiple hits.
