Red Sox 17, Yankees 1
Trot Nixon hit a three-run, inside-the-park homer and drove in five runs, and David Ortiz added a grand slam on Friday night to propel the Boston Red Sox to their second 17-1 drubbing of the New York Yankees this season.
The Red Sox, who snapped a three-game losing streak, won by the same score at Yankee Stadium on May 28.
David Wells (7-5) allowed one run, five hits and no walks while striking out five in seven innings. He was pitching while appealing a six-game suspension he received Friday for making contact with two umpires on July 2 against Toronto.
The Red Sox scored six runs each off Tim Redding and Darrell May. Redding (0-1) left with the bases loaded and no outs in the second after allowing four hits and four runs.
Boston's Johnny Damon extended his hitting streak to 27 games.
