Yankee Stadium, New York, New York
NEW YORK -- Mark Teixeira held his bat high, slowly trotting toward first base, unsure whether the ball he'd just sent soaring into the night would stay fair.The way this series went for Boston and New York, there should have been no doubt.
• The Yankees outscored the Red Sox 25-8 en route to the four-game sweep.
• Victor Martinez ended Boston's scoreless innings streak at 31 with a two-run homer in the eighth. The 31-inning slump is the Red Sox's longest since their 34-inning scoreless streak in 1974.
• After allowing zero homers in his first 27 appearances this season, Daniel Bard has now allowed three shots in his last three outings.
• Boston fell to 0-9 since the All-Star break against teams with winning records.
