Recap


Red Sox 9, Yankees 5: Pedro Ciriaco had four hits and four RBIs in his second game of the season as host Boston salvaged a split of a doubleheader.

Mauro Gomez, another recent callup, and Adrian Gonzalez added three hits and two runs apiece to help the Red Sox erased an early three-run deficit and snap a five-game losing streak.

Red Sox left-hander Felix Doubront (9-4) overcame a shaky first inning and went 6 1/3 innings, allowing four runs on four hits and retiring 18 of 20 batters in one stretch.

Phil Hughes (9-7) was roughed up for five runs - three earned - on 10 hits in 5 1/3 innings as the Yankees saw their three-game winning streak come to an end.

Mark Teixeira hit a three-run homer in the first inning and Andruw Jones and Eric Chavez added solo blasts, giving the Yankees seven homers in the doubleheader - three by Jones.

The Red Sox clawed back with single runs in the third and fifth before Ciriaco put them ahead with his third hit, a three-run double in the sixth that made it 5-3 and ended Hughes' night.

After Jones homered in the seventh, the Red Sox tacked on four runs in the bottom half, getting an RBI triple from Ryan Sweeney, a run-scoring double from Gomez and Ciriaco's fourth RBI.

GAME NOTEBOOK: New York committed a season-high four errors. ... Gonzalez extended his hitting streak to a career-high 18 games. ... The Yankees have scored 12 first-inning runs in the opening three games of the series ... Gomez, who was promoted from the minors when Dustin Pedroia went on the 15-day disabled list, is 7-for-13 in the first three games of the series. ... Yankees C Russell Martin doubled in the second inning to snap an 0-for-30 skid. ... Boston activated Sweeney from the 15-day DL and sent OF Ryan Kalish to Triple-A Pawtucket.
