Not even the presence of John Lackey could cool off the Red Sox' bats. Lackey who had received the worst run support of any Red Sox starter got more than he had in any one game this season as the Sox continued to pile up hits homers and runs at a furious pace bashing the New York Yankees for the third straight game. The win was Boston's fifth in a row overall and gave them six straight series wins. In the last four games the Red Sox have scored 53 runs and belted 17 homers. The Sox rode homers from Jonny Gomes (a three-run shot in the third) Mike Napoli (two-run homer in the second) and Xander Bogaerts (two-run belt in the fifth) to jump to a 12-3 lead. Every member of the starting lineup collected at least one hit and seven of the nine had at least one extra-base hit. Lackey was nicked for solo runs in the second third and fourth before yielding four more in the sixth. The seven runs allowed were a season high. Only twice before Saturday had Lackey given up more than four runs in a start this year. Napoli's homer was his fifth in his last 12 games and fifth against the Yankees this season. Bogaerts meanwhile hit his first big league homer a long blast to left that cleared the bullpen and was estimated at nearly 450 feet. The win guaranteed the Sox would win the season series with the Yankees. Boston is 10-5 with four games remaining between the two teams.
