Red Sox 6, Yankees 0

NEW YORK — Adrian Gonzalez homered for the fourth consecutive game and Josh Beckett shut down the skidding Yankees for the second time this season, sending the Red Sox to a 6-0 victory Saturday on a bizarre night in the Bronx.

It started when longtime star Jorge Posada asked to be taken out of the New York lineup after he was dropped to No. 9 in the batting order. (Details, 4C.)

Andruw Jones took over at DH, and Posada was on the bench during the game, wearing a cap and sweat shirt.

His teammates managed only four singles and two walks against Beckett while losing their fourth straight, New York's longest skid since it lost four in a row Sept. 22-25.

The Yankees, who have lost eight of 11 overall, fell to 1-4 against Boston this season. The Red Sox moved within a game of .500 for the fifth time this season but have yet to pull even.

Beckett won his second matchup with CC Sabathia. Gonzalez chased Sabathia with a drive to right-center, his fifth homer in four games and first extra-base hit in 51 at-bats against left-handers.

    UPDATE, 4:27: In making the deal, the Rays add an elite-level defender to an infield that could use the help.
