Yankees 7, Red Sox 3

Jones leads Yankees over Red Sox, again

Bobby Valentine is not a grader. He refused to rank his club heading into the All-Star Break with any sort of letter-based evaluation.

But things have been a mixed bag up until this point. The Sox's first-inning woes struck again Sunday night; they fell behind early against the Yankees with a chance to salvage a series split hanging in the air. Instead, they fell 7-3, are back to .500, and have lost five of six to New York this season.
