       BOSTON (AP) - Derek Jeter had a two-run double, Mark Teixeira hit a solo homer and New York's bullpen worked 4 1-3 solid innings, leading the Yankees to a 6-4 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Saturday.

        Stephen Drew, acquired from the Red Sox on Thursday, added an RBI double as the Yankees won for just the second time in six games.

        Mike Napoli had a two-run homer for the Red Sox, who have lost nine of 11.

        Yoenis Cespedes made his Red Sox debut and went 1 for 4 with a single.

        Shawn Kelley (2-3) pitched 1 1-3 innings of hitless relief for the victory and David Robertson got the final three outs for his 28th save. Allen Webster (1-1) couldn't overcome his wildness and was pulled after giving up four runs. He walked six, fanned one and allowed two hits in 2 2-3 innings.
