Doubront shines again as Sox top Yankees
The left-hander who hasn’t lost since June 8, won his third straight start combining with three relievers on a five-hitter that carried the Boston Red Sox to a 4-2 victory over the depleted New York Yankees in the opener of a post-break three-game series.
Junichi Tazawa, Craig Breslow and Koji Uehara finished up as the Red Sox snapped a two-game losing streak and handed the Yankees, making their first 2013 visit to Fenway, to their third straight loss.
Boston second baseman Dustin Pedroia is poised to become the highest paid 5-foot-6, 165-pound player baseman in the history of the game.
The Red Sox and Pedroia made significant progress for a contract extension worth $100 million during the All-Star Break. Talks have been ongoing since the offseason, but Yahoo! Sports said Boston now has incentive to lock up the popular Pedroia.
