Yankees 5, Red Sox 4

BOSTON — Curtis Granderson hit two home runs, Robinson Cano also homered and the Yankees beat the Red Sox 5-4 on Wednesday night to remain tied for first place in the American League East.

The Yankees finished the game without shortstop Derek Jeter, who left in the eighth after pulling up lame running out a double play grounder to end the inning.

Manager Joe Girardi said Jeter wanted to stay in but he told the shortstop to put ice on his foot. Girardi said it was a bone bruise; Jeter said it was a sprained ankle.

A day after Jacoby Ellsbury's walkoff single dropped New York into a tie with the Orioles atop the division, the Yankees got all their runs on homers to remain there.

Former Rays closer Rafael Soriano got the final four outs but allowed a solo homer to Jarrod Saltalamacchia to lead off the ninth, followed by a fly that leftfielder Chris Dickerson caught at the base of the Green Monster.

    MINNEAPOLIS — Rookie INF Daniel Robertson has earned raves for his defensive play at both second base and shortstop, making a highlight play almost every game he starts, including one in the fifth inning Friday.

    RF Steven Souza is always, shall we say, entertaining. In the second, he made an impressive running, leaping catch. In the seventh, he made either the worst dive for a ball a good 15 feet away or was trying for the best deke. In the eighth, he hit a massive homer.
