Ciriaco Triple Leads Red Sox over Yankees 8-6

AP

Grandson could get to the ball, that if caught, would have opened the door for a Yankees win.

Curtis Granderson misplayed Peter Ciriaco's ninth-inning flyball into a go-ahead triple, and the Boston Red Sox beat the New York Yankees 8-6 Saturday night after Mark Teixeira had tied the score with a two-run homer off nemesis Vicente Padilla.

Down 6-1, the Yankees closed in the fifth on Jayson Nix's two-run homer off Jon Lester and Derek Jeter's RBI grounder.

After Teixeira's homer in the eighth, Rafael Soriano (2-1) walked Jacoby Ellsbury with one out in the ninth and Ciriaco hit a fly that could have been caught. Granderson broke in, then went back and turned the wrong way before the ball dropped to his right-field side as he fell. Dustin Pedroia followed with a sacrifice fly.

Andrew Miller (3-1) got one out for the win, just the second for Boston in eight games against the Yankees this year.
