Home runs help hand Red Sox first place

NEW YORK -- The Red Sox claimed sole possession of first place in the American League East thanks to a 11-6 win over the Yankees on Wednesday night at Yankee Stadium. The Sox jumped out to a 7-1 lead after four innings and never looked back.

The Sox put on an offensive show against Yankees starter A.J. Burnett and relievers Boone Logan and Lance Pendleton, managing 11 hits, including home runs by David Ortiz, Carl Crawford and J.D. Drew. Jacoby Ellsbury continued his hot hitting, coming away with three hits, while Marco Scutaro and Crawford each claimed a pair.

Sox starter Tim Wakefield did enough to claim his third win of the season, and 196th for his career, allowing five runs on five hits over 5 1/3 innings before giving way to Alfredo Aceves. Aceves pitched the final 3 2/3 innings, giving up one run and just four hits while striking out three and walking one batter.

Burnett, meanwhile, saw his ERA balloon to 4.37 after surrendering eight...

Tommy John surgeries for Hill, Daisuke set

NEW YORK -- Red Sox reliever Rich Hill will undergo Tommy John surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left armThursday in Pensacola, Fla., with Dr. James Andrews performing the procedure. Starter Daisuke Matsuzaka will also have Tommy John surgery, with his operation scheduled to be performed by Dr. Lewis Yocum Friday.

Hill appeared in nine games for the Sox in 2011, allowing no runs and just three hits while striking out 12 and walking three in eight innings. The lefty hadn't allowed a run in 15 games with the Red Sox since joining the team in '10.

A native of Milton, Hill experienced his injury May 29 while pitching to Chicago's Adam Dunn. The hurler immediately grabbed his elbow after throwing a curveball -- his seventh pitch of the outing --  leading to an MRI being performed on the 31-year-old later that day.

Matsuzaka finishes '11 with a 3-3 mark and a 5.30 ERA. He pitched in eight games, with his last appearance coming on May...

Jenks to DL, Exposito recalled

NEW YORK -- The Red Sox have placed reliever Bobby Jenks on the DL with a back injury and have recalled catcher Luis Exposito from Triple-A Pawtucket.

"It's [back injury] just from pitching," said Jenks, who left the Tuesday's game after throwing just four pitches in the seventh inning and had an MRI Wednesday. "It's literally a muscle that's about this big, and I tore it a bunch of years ago. It's one of those things that just comes and goes every now and then. It's on my left side, right behind my left [scapula]."

With Jarrod Saltalamacchia out for Wednesday's game with an illness, the Sox had only one healthy catcher (Jason Varitek) on the roster before adding the 24-year-old Exposito, who is batting .223 in 33 games with Pawtucket.
