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.

New York Manager Joe Torre, left, and pitching coach Mel Stottlemyre can't like what they see after their team fell behind, 8-0, to Boston in the second inning. The loss was just the second in 10 games for the Yankees.
