Yankees use big 7th inning to rout Red Sox
NEW YORK (AP) -- Brian McCann and Chris Young hit three-run homers during a nine-run burst in the seventh inning and the New York Yankees broke loose once again, romping past the Boston Red Sox 13-3 Tuesday night.
Down 2-1 and held to three singles going into the sixth, the Yankees suddenly struck. The AL East leaders wound up scoring in double figures for the fourth time in seven games -- they'd gone more than a month without doing it until a 21-5 rout at Texas last week.
Mark Teixeira hit a pair of RBI singles and McCann, Alex Rodriguez, Carlos Beltran and Chase Headley added late doubles as the Yankees won for the 11th time in 15 games.
Last-place Boston lost its eighth straight on the road.
