AP Baseball Writer=

       NEW YORK (AP) _ Joe Kelly pitched one-hit ball for seven innings and the Boston Red Sox ran over the Yankees 8-4 Saturday, hours after winning their own New York City marathon.

        Bleary-eyed, the teams started at 1:08 p.m. following Friday night’s game that took 19 innings and finished at 2:13 a.m. Brock Holt, the only position player on either side who didn’t get into that 6-5 Boston victory, had four hits and drove in three runs.

        The Red Sox won this time in 3 hours, 13 minutes _ quite a speed-up from playing for 6 hours, 49 minutes, not including a 16-minute power outage. Mark Teixeira and Hanley Ramirez were among several regulars out of the lineups after playing all 19 innings.

        Kelly (1-0) came off the 15-day disabled list and saved Boston’s bullpen. He retired his final 17 batters, starting with a bases-loaded sacrifice fly by Didi Gregorius in the second and leaving with an 8-1 lead.
