Jarrod Saltalamacchia continues to make a case for the Red Sox to bring back the soon-to-be free agent. On Friday night his seventh-inning grand slam broke open a tie game giving the Sox an 8-4 win over the Yankees at Fenway Park. It was his 13th home run of the season and third career grand slam the first since May 5 2009. Shane Victorino led off the seventh with a single to left ending the night for Yankees starter Hiroki Kuroda who took the loss. Left-hander Cesar Cabral entered hitting David Ortiz the only batter he faced with a pitch. Claiborne walked pinch-hitter Jonny Gomes to load the bases before striking out Daniel Nava. But Saltalamacchia blasted his slam into the bleacher seats behind the Sox bullpen giving the Sox an 8-4 lead. The Sox jumped out to a four-run lead in the first when they sent eight batters to the plate. Dustin Pedroia again in the lead-off spot opened with a single to left taking third on David Ortiz’s one-out double. Mike Carp’s groundout scored Pedroia and Daniel Nava’s single to left scored Ortiz. After Jarrod Saltalamacchia walked Stephen Drew’s two-out double scored two runs giving the Sox a 4-0 lead. The Yankees got a run back on Brendan Ryan’s lead-off home run in the third off Red Sox starter John Lackey. They added another in the sixth when Robinson Cano hit a one-out double taking third on Alfonso Soriano’s single and scoring on Lyle Overbay’s sacrifice fly.
