The Red Sox scored four times in the seventh and twice more in the eighth in a 9-6 come-from-behind win over the Yankees Friday night at Fenway Park.

The win was Boston's 13th in their last 15 games and dropped New York five games back in the American League East.

The win didn't come without a cost, however. Starting pitcher Drew Pomeranz had to leave in the top of the fourth inning with back spasms.

Boston took a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the second an a two-run blast by new Yankee killer Rafael Devers, his seventh of the year.

Christian Vazquez made it 3-0 with a home run onto Lansdowne Street in the fifth.

Todd Frazier brought the Yankees to within one with a two-run homer in the sixth off Matt Barnes and New York added four more in the seventh to take a 6-3 lead.

The Red Sox answered back in the bottom of the inning with a four spot of its own.

Mookie Betts drove in a run with a sacrifice fly, followed by a run-scoring single by Andrew Benintendi and a two-RBI hit by Mitch Moreland.

They added a pair of insurance runs in the eighth on a two-RBI single by Jackie Bradley Jr.

Addison Reed was the winner in relief with 1.2 scoreless innings. Craig Kimbrel struck out the side in the ninth for his 29th save.
