BOSTON—Nick Swisher drove in six runs, including a grand slam, and Mark Teixeira homered twice as the Yankees scored 15 unanswered runs and charged back from nine runs down, stunning the Red Sox, 15-9, on Saturday at Fenway Park.
Swisher connected for his first grand slam in a Yankees uniform as part of a seven-run seventh inning against three Boston relievers that also included a three-run Teixeira blast, as 11 Yankees batters came to the plate in the frame.
Facing former Yankees righty Alfredo Aceves in the eighth, Swisher belted the go-ahead hit, a two-run double to deep center field, as New York also batted around in that seven-run frame. Aceves had been manager Bobby Valentine’s last resort in a game that the Red Sox led, 9-0, after five innings.
I guess I shouldn’t have turned the game off after the second inning.
