Lineup: Crawford, Ciriaco playing

Outfielder Carl Crawford is back in the lineup for the Red Sox on Sunday night against the Yankees and starter Hiroki Kuroda. With the right-handed Kuroda on the mound, struggling Sox shortstop Mike Aviles will get the day off, as Pedro Ciriaco will play shortstop. Cody Ross will serve as the designated hitter, and Ryan Sweeney will get the start in right field.

Adrian Gonzalez, fresh off his 3-for-5 game on Saturday, will remain in the cleanup spot. He has a significant track record of success, having hit the former Dodgers pitcher to the tune of a .308/.438/.629 line with four doubles and two homers in 32 career plate appearances. Left-hander Felix Doubront will take the mound for the Sox, and has the only win by a Red Sox starter against the Yankees this year.

Ciriaco saves the day in Red Sox win

NEW YORK -- Yankees center fielder Curtis Granderson misjudged a Pedro Ciriaco fly ball with one out in the ninth inning, allowing Jacoby Ellsbury to come in on the Sox designated hitter's triple and give the Red Sox an 8-6 win over New York on Saturday at Yankee Stadium.

The Sox added an insurance run in the ninth against Yankees reliever Rafael Soriano courtesy Dustin Pedroia's sacrifice fly.

The Red Sox had carried a two-run lead into the eighth inning, but with two outs and Raul Ibanez at first base, Mark Teixeira jumped all over a Vicente Padilla fastball, hitting it well into the right-field stands for a game-tying home run.

The homer for Teixeira was the third hit in 12 at-bats against Padilla, who got into a war of words with the Yankees first baseman after he had hit a key two-run triple against the Red Sox reliever on July 6.

The Sox held a 6-1 lead in the fifth inning after Adrian Gonzalez' 10th homer of the season, a three...

Rex Ryan: Jets won't concede division to Pats

Jets coach Rex Ryan proclaimed that all aspirations for the AFC East title necessarily go through the Patriots, but he also said that his team is prepared to compete with New England for that spot.

"Do I respect New England and the fact that New England has won our division a zillion times? The three years I've been here, they've won it all three years -- and I don't think it's been close," said Ryan. "They've been clearly dominating this division for years and years and years. So you have to beat them. It always goes through them.

"But again, I will never back down and concede to anything," he added. "When you talk about conceding the division, yeah, right. Not me. There's no chance here. Not with the Jets."

The ets finished 8-8 last year, five games behind the Patriots in the AFC East. It was the first time in Ryan's three seasons as Jets coach that New York missed the playoffs.

Crawford: Andrews said surgery inevitable

NEW YORK -- Speaking before the Red Sox game with the Yankees Saturday afternoon, Carl Crawford disclosed that Dr. James Andrews had told him he needed Tommy John surgery during an April examination, and that the operation was just a matter of time.

Crawford said when he got the news from Andrews in late April, the assumption was surgery would be the preferred immediate path. But he was told a PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) injection would suffice to perform in the 2012 season.

"I try not to even think about it, to be honest with you," Crawford said of his injured left elbow. "Like I said, I'll go out there and play and try not to think about it. I figure one day it will blow out and when that happens, time to go, You know?"

Crawford said the medical staff informed him the recovery time for such a surgery wouldn't be as long as the approximate 11-month timetable pitchers usually deal with, identifying five or six months as...

Lineups: Crawford sits vs. Sabathia

With left-hander CC Sabathia on the mound for the Yankees, left fielder Carl Crawford will sit for the Red Sox, with Pedro Ciriaco batting second and serving as the DH and Daniel Nava playing left field and batting ninth. Kelly Shoppach will get a start against Sabathia, his former teammate with the Indians, while catching Jon Lester, who will be looking for his first win of the second half. .

Crawford is 4-for-20 with seven strikeouts and a walk so far this year against lefties. Of course, Nava has also had his struggles against southpaws, hitting .148/.266/.241/.508 against them. Moreover, Crawford is a career .319/.338/.449/.787 hitter against Sabathia, whom Nava has never faced.
