Brett Gardner went 2-for-6 with a homer and three RBI, powering the Yankees to an 8-5 victory over the Red Sox on Sunday.

Gardner also scored a pair of runs and swiped two bases in the impressive evening. His three-run shot off Craig Breslow in the sixth inning put the Bombers ahead 8-0 at the time and proved to be the difference in the ballgame. Gardner has been very impressive in the early going, slashing .320/.400/.453 with two homers, 13 RBI and eight swipes.

Jacoby Ellsbury went 4-for-4 and drew a pair of walks, reaching base safely in all six of his plate appearances as the Yankees topped the Red Sox on Sunday night.

All four of Ellsbury's hits on the evening were singles, and he also scored a pair of runs in the contest. He's off to a terrific start at the plate in 2015, slashing .351/.432/.402 with a homer, three RBI and nine stolen bases.
May 4 - 12:03 AM

Andrew Miller worked a scoreless ninth inning against the Red Sox on Sunday, protecting a three-run advantage and picking up his 10th save of the season.

It wasn't as easy as most of the hard-throwing southpaw's save chances have been this year, as a pair of walks put the tying run at the plate in the form of David Ortiz, but Miller was able to escape unscathed. He still has yet to allow a run in 13 1/3 innings on the season and sports a dazzling 23/6 K/BB ratio.
May 4 - 12:03 AM

Adam Warren picked up his second victory of the season on Sunday despite allowing four runs on four hits over his 5 2/3 innings of work.

Warren fanned two and walked two on the evening. After being staked to an early lead, Warren cruised through four innings unscathed before running into a buzzsaw in the sixth. Two of the four runs charged to him scored on a Mike Napoli home run after he left the game. Warren will bring a 4.78 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 14/10 K/BB ratio into his next start against the Orioles on Friday.
May 4 - 12:02 AM

Chris Young blasted his sixth home run of the season on Saturday as the Yankees topped the Red Sox 4-2.

Young also doubled, finishing the ballgame 2-for-4. His solo shot off Alexi Ogando in the ninth inning provided a valuable insurance run. He has been mighty impressive for the Yankees thus far in 2015, slashing .317/.386/.698 with six homers and 12 RBI.
May 2 - 4:26 PM

Dellin Betances picked up his first save of the 2015 season on Saturday, recording the final four outs against the Red Sox.

Betances was his usual dominating self on Saturday, striking out each of the four hitters that he faced. He hasn't allowed a run in 14 2/3 innings on the season while posting a 0.95 ERA and 25/8 K/BB ratio.
May 2 - 4:26 PM

Nathan Eovaldi pitched well in Saturday's victory over the Red Sox, allowing just two runs on seven hits over his 6 2/3 innings of work.

The hard-throwing right-hander struck out a pair and walked one on the afternoon. He was tagged for a solo homer by Dustin Pedroia in the fourth inning and an RBI double by Mookie Betts in the seventh, but was able to keep the Red Sox as bay otherwise. Now 2-0 on the season, he'll carry a 3.81 ERA, 1.55 WHIP and 22/6 K/BB ratio into Thursday's matchup against the Orioles.
May 2 - 4:25 PM

Carlos Beltran is not in the Yankees starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Red Sox.

It's simply a routine day of rest for the veteran outfielder. Chris Young will draw the start in his place in right field against opposing southpaw Wade Miley. Look for Beltran to return to the lineup on Sunday.
May 2 - 10:51 AM

CC Sabathia yielded two runs in six innings in a no-decision against the Red Sox on Friday.

Sabathia held Boston's powerful lineup in check for the most part, allowing just a sacrifice fly to Mookie Betts in the third inning and a solo homer to Allen Craig one inning later. The veteran left-hander struck out three and walked two and now owns a 5.40 ERA through five starts. He'll go into a start with the Blue Jays next week still in search of his first win.
May 1 - 11:07 PM

Carlos Beltran went 2-for-4 with an RBI double Friday against the Red Sox.

This was just his third multi-hit game of the season and his first since April 22. That was also the last time he drove in a run. The 39-year-old is batting just .181 through 19 games and is still looking for his first home run.
May 1 - 11:06 PM

Alex Rodriguez hit his 660th career home run on Friday against the Red Sox, tying Willie Mays for fourth on the all-time list.

And it happened in Fenway Park, of course. Rodriguez wasn't in the starting lineup Friday, but he came up as a pinch-hitter in the eighth inning against Junichi Tazawa and took him deep for a go-ahead solo shot over the Green Monster in left field. Interestingly, it was the first pinch-hit home run of his career. Rodriguez is due to receive a $6 million "milestone bonus" for tying Mays, but the Yankees reportedly don't plan on paying it due to his history with performance-enhancing drugs. The 39-year-old is batting .243/.376/.557 with six home runs and 14 RBI through 21 games this season.
May 1 - 10:41 PM

Chris Capuano (quad) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Tampa on Saturday.

He'll go four innings and/or 60 pitches. It's not clear how many rehab starts Capuano will make, but he shouldn't need more than a couple after Saturday's outing. He'll rejoin the Yankees' rotation later this month.
May 1 - 5:32 PM

Alex Rodriguez is not in the Yankees' lineup Friday.

A-Rod was off on Tuesday and the Yanks didn't play Thursday, but the club is going with Garrett Jones in the designated hitter spot Friday against Justin Masterson, who is vulnerable to left-handed hitters. Rodriguez will be back in there Saturday.
May 1 - 3:46 PM

Jose Pirela (concussion) has shifted his rehab assignment to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

He's 1-for-14 in four rehab games between High-A Tampa and Double-A Trenton, but the Yankees aren't going to be too worried about those results. Pirala should join the big league roster as a utility infielder by early next week. The 25-year-old suffered a concussion on March 22 when he knocked into a wall at spring training.
Apr 30 - 12:07 PM

Andrew Bailey has been shut down at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre due to a shoulder strain.

Yet another arm injury for the 30-year-old right-hander. Bailey hasn't appeared in a major league game since July 12, 2013 and this new shoulder issue will obviously make his climb to New York much tougher. No word yet on how long he's expected to be sidelined.
