John Lackey held the Yankees to just one run over 6.2 innings and the Red Sox offense pounded out fourteen hits as Boston beat New York 6-1 at Fenway Park on Saturday afternoon to even the three-game series at a game apiece.
The Yankees got a run back in the top of the fifth on an RBI ground out by Ichiro Suzuki but were shutout the rest of the way by a combination of Lackey, Craig Breslow, Junichi Tazawa and Koji Uehara. The relievers pitched a combined 2.1 innings and allowed just two hits and no walks while striking out three.
The Red Sox scored a pair of runs in the bottom of the sixth on an RBI single by Jarrod Saltalamacchia and an RBI double by Ellsbury. Ortiz completed the scoring with a solo home run in the seventh, his twenty-fourth of the year.

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball and radio (WDHA).
