Jeter Hits Milestone Homer in Yankees’ Win Over Red Sox

Derek Jeter hit his 250th home run, Nick Swisher connected twice and the New York Yankees beat the Boston Red Sox 6-4 on a lightning-filled Friday night for their eighth win in 10 games.

Swisher, Curtis Granderson, Russell Martin and Jeter hit solo homers off Franklin Morales (3-4), and Swisher added another solo shot in the seventh against Clayton Mortensen. Jeter’s homer gave the Yankees 10 players with 10 or more this season, tying the club record set in 1998.

Phil Hughes (12-10) survived his own throwing error that led to four unearned runs during a rainy third inning. Down 3-0, the Red Sox went ahead on Dustin Pedroia’s three-run homer, the 28th long ball off Hughes this year.

New York improved to 7-3 against the Red Sox this season.
