NEW YORK -- Playing in prime time on national television against an AL East rival, the big names in the middle of Bostons lineup delivered. Sacha Kljestan Jersey . David Ortiz hit his 450th homer, a colossal three-run drive, and Dustin Pedroia had three RBIs during his second consecutive three-hit game to lead the Red Sox over the New York Yankees 8-5 Sunday night. "To get to where we want to be, those guys are going to have to drive the bus," winning pitcher John Lackey said. "You need the parts to do well, too, but theyre kind of the engine that runs this thing." Lackey (9-5) laboured through five innings before four Red Sox relievers pitched shutout ball the rest of the way. Held to two runs in the first two games of the series, Boston took two of three anyway to finish a 4-6 road trip and improve to 6-13 away from home this month. "Anytime you win a series on the road, particularly against a team thats ahead of us, these are key," manager John Farrell said. Mark Teixeira and Carlos Beltran (three hits) homered for the Yankees, who have dropped six of eight. Rookie right-hander Chase Whitley (3-2) struggled for the second straight start, allowing five runs and eight hits in four-plus innings, as six New York pitchers combined for eight walks. "Youre behind in the count, youre walking people and giving them extra baserunners, it usually leads to damage," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. Koji Uehara worked a perfect ninth for his 18th save in 19 attempts. After averaging 2 hours, 45 minutes in the first two meetings this weekend, the longtime rivals were back to their usual plodding ways in a game that took 3:38. Pedroia made a diving play at second base to limit a Yankees rally, and centre fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. threw out Beltran at the plate to keep the score 8-5 in the sixth. It was Bradleys ninth assist of the season. "Changed the momentum of the game," Farrell said. Pedroia bounced a hit-and-run single through the right side in the third, and Ortiz was booed by the sellout crowd of 48,124 as he stepped to the plate. The slugger answered with a long drive well into the raised bleachers in right-centre to make it 4-0. Ortiz tossed his bat aside and took his time on a wide trot around the bases, saluting his family in the stands as he approached third base. "My son, he always enjoys watching daddy go deep. He was dancing," Ortiz said. The home run put Big Papi in sole possession of 37th place on the career list, two behind Adam Dunn and Red Sox Hall of Famer Carl Yastrzemski. "Pretty cool," Ortiz said. Handed a comfortable cushion, Lackey grew frustrated and shook his head as Brett Gardner and Derek Jeter fouled off pitch after pitch in the third. They combined to see 21 pitches in consecutive at-bats, and Lackey screamed, cursed and gestured wildly when Jeter grounded an RBI single to right. "Thats going to take its toll," Farrell said. Perhaps worn down a bit, Lackey gave up solo homers to Teixeira and Beltran in the fourth, cutting it to 4-3. Whitley and reliever Shawn Kelley threw 10 straight balls to begin the fifth, combining to walk the bases loaded with none out. Pedroia blooped a two-run single and later stayed in a rundown long enough for Daniel Nava to score from third. "Im most frustrated with the pitch to Ortiz, obviously, and the walk to Bradley that set up the fifth. That was unacceptable," Whitley said. Ichiro Suzuki tripled to spark a two-run rally in the bottom half. He scored on Gardners double. Pedroias sacrifice fly made it 8-5 in the sixth. Mike Napoli doubled to start the second and scored on a single by slumping Stephen Drew, his second RBI in 57 at-bats this season. Touted prospect Mookie Betts made his major league debut for Boston in right field. With his parents and fiancee in the stands, the 21-year-old Betts grounded into a double play his first time up but singled in the fourth for his first hit. Jeter tossed the souvenir ball to a Red Sox bat boy, and Betts was promptly caught stealing. "It was great," Betts said, acknowledging he felt some jitters during his first at-bat. "Im not one to put any extra pressure on myself." NOTES: Rookie SS-3B Xander Bogaerts, in a 2-for-35 slump, was left out of the Red Sox lineup. ... Boston is 27-26 at the current Yankee Stadium, the best winning percentage for any visiting AL team. ... Red Sox RHP Jake Peavy (1-6, 4.93 ERA) starts Monday night at Fenway Park against Cubs RHP Jake Arrieta (4-1, 2.05). ... Before this weekend, the last time the Yankees and Red Sox played consecutive games in 2:47 or less was April 2001. Bill Hamid Jersey . -- The guys in green raced off the court and into the locker room where they danced and sang, compared whose shot was most likely to end up featured on "One Shining Moment," and checked Twitter to see who was giving them a shoutout. Kellyn Acosta Jersey . -- Detroit shortstop Jose Iglesias says he has stress fractures in both legs and isnt sure when hell be able to play again, leaving the Tigers two weeks to fill his spot for opening day and perhaps a lot longer. http://www.usasoccerauthority.com/gyasi-zardes-usa-jersey/ . James scored 25 points against his former team, leading the energized Heat to a 114-107 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday night. Dwyane Wade added 24 points and Chris Bosh had 22 for the Heat, idle since a 90-84 loss Tuesday at Indiana.TORONTO -- Montreal Alouettes kicker Sean Whyte was fined by the CFL on Wednesday for criticizing an official following a loss to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Hamilton defeated Montreal 27-24 last weekend thanks to Brandon Banks 107-yard return of an errant Whyte field goal attempt. After the game, Whyte criticized referee Andre Proulx. "I wanted to say something," Whyte said. "Im probably going to get fined for this. "Im sick of this. This guy (Proulx) is going to end my career one day." Montreal led 23-20 with roughly four minutes remaining to play when Whyte lined up a 42-yard field goal. Whytes try was short and Banks return provided the Ticats with their winning marggin. Michael Bradley Jersey. Hamiltons Rico Murray came in contact with Whytes knee on the try but, no flag was thrown. "After the kick, he hit me. My leg was still on the way up," Whyte said. "He (Proulx) didnt want to call it. He never calls it. Paul McCallum got hit a couple of weeks ago, they didnt call it. They call everything on a quarterback. Why arent you calling these things on kickers? "The guy hit me on the knee. That could end my career." With the win, Hamilton (9-8) clinched second in the East Division to host Montreal (7-10) in the conference semifinal Nov. 10 in Guelph, Ont. In keeping with its policy, the CFL didnt divulge the amount of the fine.
