    Yankees 10, Red Sox 8

    Red Sox pitching belted by Yankees

    As the seventh inning started at Fenway Park Friday night, the Red Sox were nine outs from what would have been their signature victory of the season.

    Down by five runs in the first inning against the Yankees, the determined Sox overcame a terrible start by Josh Beckett to take a one-run lead. Manager Bobby Valentine also had his best relievers lined up just the way he wanted them.
