Jim Monaghan Contributing writer Felix Doubront had nothing, the Red Sox offense only a little more, and the resurgent Yankees came away with a 10-3 win last night in the opener of a three-game series at Fenway Park. The loss was the third in a row for Boston and the sixth in the last eight games. The Yankees scored in each of the first four innings.

Game 125: Yankees at Red Sox - Lacking fire power, Sox turn to Lackey to beat Yanks

Ben Whitehead Contributing Writer Things are turning bleak for the Boston Red Sox, who lost their third straight game and sixth of their last eight.
