The Boston Red Sox took advantage of its base runners on Saturday night against the New York Yankees with 11 runs on 18 hits, including three homers and 5-of-15 with runners in scoring position. They won 11-1 and bring the AL East lead to two games over the Yankees.

Felix Doubront really dominated in his six innings of work. He struck out six, walked three and gave up six hits on 103 pitches. He improved to 4-2 on the season.

Phil Hughes saw his record fall to 2-4 with five earned runs in 4 1/3 innings pitched. He also gave up seven hits and walked two batters.

The Red Sox scored five runs in the third inning off Hughes. The first came off the RBI double from Mike Carp with Daniel Nava and Jackie Bradley Jr. on first and third and nobody out. Bradley Jr. had led off the inning with a double and Nava followed with a single.

Hughes intentionally walked David Ortiz after striking out Dustin Pedroia which brought Mike Napoli to the dish with the bases loaded. He drove a 2-2 pitch to right-center for a grand slam and a 5-0 edge for the Red Sox.

The Yankees’ lone run came in the fourth inning on a sacrifice fly from Chris Stewart, who left with dehydration in the top of the fifth, that scored Jayson Nix.

Daniel Nava gave the Red Sox a 8-1 advantage in the eighth after he hit a ball to right center for a three-run jack. Jose Iglesias and Bradley Jr. started off the inning with back-to-back hits.

The Red Sox added three more runs in the ninth on a Stephen Drew homer, a RBI single for Iglesias and a grounder off the bat of Nava that scored Iglesias from third.

Nava finished the night 4-of-6 with four RBI in the place of Jacoby Ellsbury batting in the leadoff spot, who was missing his second straight game with a groin injury.

The bullpen of the Red Sox ended up retiring the last 10 batters of the game.

The Red Sox and Yankees will have one more game to decide who wins this three-game set on Sunday night when Clay Buchholz faces off against Hiroki Kuroda.
