Jeter starts Yankees' home run onslaught

August 24, 2009|Associated Press

BOSTON — Derek Jeter hit the first pitch of the game for one of New York's five home runs against Josh Beckett, CC Sabathia became the majors' first 15-game winner and the Yankees beat the Boston Red Sox, 8-4, Sunday night.

The expected pitchers duel between the American League's only 14-game winners never materialized, as the Yankees scored in each of the first five innings against Beckett (14-5) and the Red Sox had four runs against Sabathia (15-7) before he left with two outs in the seventh.
