Ivan Nova struck out 10, Andruw Jones hit his fourth homer in three games and the surging New York Yankees went into the All-Star break with a 7-3 win over the Boston Red Sox on Sunday night.

Boston (43-43) dropped its sixth game in the last seven and fell into a last-place tie in the division with the Toronto Blue Jays, 9 1/2 games off the pace. Only three AL teams -- Minnesota, Kansas City and Seattle -- are below .500 at the break. Nova (10-3) allowed two runs and six hits in six innings. Jones provided a cushion with a two-run homer in the seventh that gave New York a 7-2 lead. Jon Lester (5-6), who won at least 15 games in each of the last four seasons, left with one out in the fifth after giving up five runs and nine hits.

After all, he had been steadily declining for seasons, and he was coming off a year where he hit .222 with the Braves. It’s only now, 4 years later, that I feel comfortable admitting something that I don’t very often–that I was dead wrong. Andruw Jones was once a phenom...

Live DB continued: (Final day)

This live drunk blogging is tough enough when you're playing one game. Two is hell. One more day to go. One more day. To. Go. Now what do we do with Andruw Jones? He finally got hot yesterday, so we can't dump him. But do we really need another guy who only hits HRs?
