BOSTON — Rick Porcello continued to dominate at Fenway Park with eight solid innings, Matt Barnes cleaned up a mess created by closer Craig Kimbrel and the Red Sox held on to beat their long time rivals. Kimbrel walked in a run with the bases loaded in the ninth before handing off to Barnes, who struck out Mark Teixeira for his first save. Boston has won 10 of the last 14 meetings with the Yankees. Dustin Pedroia had three RBIs. Porcello allowed two runs and struck out six.
