       BOSTON (AP) _ Jarrod Saltalamacchia hit a tiebreaking grand slam in the seventh inning, lifting the Boston Red Sox over the New York Yankees 8-4 Friday night.

        David Ortiz and Stephen Drew each doubled twice as the AL East-leading Red Sox won for the 15th time in 19 games. Saltalamacchia also doubled and scored twice.

        Robinson Cano went 4 for 4 with three doubles and two RBIs for New York, which began the day one game behind Tampa Bay for the final AL wild-card spot.

        Brendan Ryan, acquired from Seattle on Tuesday for a player to be named, hit his first homer with the Yankees.
