Padilla left a 2-1 fastball out over the plate and Teixeira tied the game with a 2-run blast into the right field stands.
Meanwhile, the Red Sox rallied for 2 runs in the top of the 9th inning on their way to an 8-6 win over the Yankees in the Bronx. Pedro Ciriaco tripled home Jacoby Ellsbury and Dustin Pedroia brought Ciriaco in with a sacrifice fly to make a winner out of Andrew Miller.
Adrian Gonzalez (pictured) had 3 hits and 4 RBI's in the win; one of those hits was a 3-run blast off Yankees starting pitcher C.C. Sabathia in the top of the 5th inning.
Alfredo Aceves pitched a scoreless 9th inning for his 22nd save of the season.
Jon Lester pitched 6 innings allowing 4 runs on 4 hits. He struck out 6 and walked 2 in a performance that while not vintage Lester, certainly was better than his last few outings. Jim Monaghan 7/28/2012 09:25:00 PM Tweet
