The Red Sox wore green uniforms to honor… Red Auerbach. I love that sentence.
The Boston Red Sox beat the New York Yankees 7-6, coming back by scoring 5 runs in the 8th inning. Players having a notable game include the following. For the NYY: A-Rod, 2 HRs give him a dozen for the season already; Rivera, loss, 2 runs in less than an inning. For the Sox: Varitek, 2 hits, including his 1st homer of the season; Okajima, his first save of the season with a scoreless and hitless 9th inning (Papelbon unavailable).
