BOSTON — Kevin Youkilis homered twice and tied a career high with six runs batted in, rookie Junichi Tazawa stopped New York's big bats and the Boston Red Sox ended a five-game skid against the Yankees with a 14-1 win Saturday.

The Red Sox roughed up A.J. Burnett and set a team record with their eighth consecutive multihomer game. David Ortiz and Alex Gonzalez also connected for Boston, which has 39 homers in August.

Burnett (10-7) gave up nine runs and nine hits in five innings, dropping to 0-3 in his last five starts.
