G23: Yankees 14, Red Sox 5

Yankees - 133 000 511 - 14 14  1
Red Sox - 002 000 300 -  5  4  5
For the first three innings alone, this game ranks as the season's worst.

In that time, Doubront (2.2-6-7-2-1, 73) came, had nothing, and went, the Red Sox committed four errors, and the Yankees seemingly ran at will, stealing three bases; there was also two wild pitches and a passed ball. New York led 7-0 before Boston could get its first hit off Sabathia (6-3-2-3-8, 106).

By the time the night was over, Mike Carp was on the mound. (The last time the Red Sox committed five errors in a game was on April 28, 2001, against the Royals.) The Yankees drew a total of 12 walks.

Shane Victorino, in the lineup for the first time this season, doubled into the left field corner in the third, after Dustin Pedroia had begun the inning with a walk. David Ortiz's sacrifice fly scored Pedroia and Victorino scored on Jonny Gomes's double.

The Red Sox took advantage of Shawn Greene, who was making his major league debut, in the seventh. Greene could not buy a strike and walked three batters; Derek Jeter made an error, and after New York changed pitchers, Gomes hit a sac fly and Xander Bogaerts doubled in a run.

However, Carp's ninth inning - which Gameday categorized solely as changeups and knuckleballs - made Greene look like Greg Maddux: BB, GIDP, BB, BB, BB, BB, PF2.
