Before the game, the Red Sox honored retiring Yankees legend Mariano Rivera.
Rivera, who has said he will retire after the season, tipped his cap to the crowd at Fenway Park.
In his second start since coming off the disabled list, Clay Buchholz delivered six strong innings, giving up just one run on two hits with three strikeouts.
The Red Sox took a 9-2 win over the Yankees.
The win was a microcosm of the season series between the two teams, which the Sox won 13-6.
Mike Napoli had a two-run homer in the first inning.

Mike Carp was hit by a pitch in the fifth inning with the bases loaded, putting the Red Sox at 5-1.
After he struck out to end the sixth inning, Napoli slammed his helmet into the ground and said something to home plate umpire Ron Kulpa, who then ejected him.
Jackie Bradley Jr. was hit by a pitch in the seventh inning by Yankees reliever Mike Zagurski (not pictured).

With the Red Sox' victory, this fan's message took one step closer to reality.
Bogaerts leaped and just held onto the ball in the tip of his glove to rob Robinson Cano of a hit to end the top of the eighth inning.
Rivera was saluted by fans as he walked down the dugout steps following what will probably be his final game at Fenway Park.
