BOSTON (AP) — Brett Gardner had a tiebreaking homer in the sixth inning for one of his three hits, helping the New York Yankees beat the Boston Red Sox 8-7 on Sunday night.

Former Red Sox infielder Stephen Drew had a pair of hits and drove in four runs in his third game with the Yankees since he was sent there at the trading deadline. Esmil Rogers (1-0) earned the victory in his Yankees debut by throwing three hitless innings, striking out three and allowing one walk.

David Robertson pitched the ninth for his 29th save.

Craig Breslow (2-3) came in to relieve Clay Buchholz to start the sixth inning and gave up Gardner's leadoff homer before retiring the next three batters.
