Solo jacks by Teixeira and Headley send Yanks to 5-4 win over Red Sox


All night the Yankees have faced disappointment, and they were looking at their third series loss in a row. However, solo home-runs from Mark Teixeira and Chase Headley in the bottom of the 9th made all the difference in a 5-4 win over the Boston Red Sox at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York.

The Yankees scored three runs in the third inning on a two-run double by Derek Jeter and a RBI single off Carlos Beltran. In the 9th inning while facing Koji Uehara, Mark Teixeira hit a solo-shot to tie the game and one batter later, Chase Headley hit the game winner into the right field seats.

Chris Capuano had a tough outing, going 4.1 innings and giving up four runs on six hits while striking out two. Since then, the Yankees bullpen shut it down: Rich Hill retired a batter, Esmil Rogers pitched 1.2 scoreless innings, Josh Outman retired a batter, Shawn Kelley pitched 1.1 scoreless innings and Adam Warren tight-roped to give himself a scoreless outing into the ninth.

What’s Next?

— The Kansas City Royals come to town for a three-game set and it will be a rematch of the make-up game in Kansas City: James Shields will pitch for the Royals and Michael Pineda will pitch for the Yankees. First pitch is at 7:05 p.m. and the game will air on the YES Network.
