Sox Beat Yankees, 7-5

This article is more than 12 years old.

Manny Ramirez hit two more homers off an ineffective Mike Mussina and the Boston Red Sox beat the New York Yankees, 7-5.

Ramirez hit his 494th home run in the first, passing Lou Gehrig and Fred McGriff for sole possession of 24th place on the career list. He then added Number-495 an inning later with a mammoth, two-run shot to left.

That gave Ramirez five homers this season. He has hit three in six days off Mussina, who fell to 1-3. It also gave the slugger 13 hits in his past 26 at-bats against Mussina, with four homers and 11 RBIs.

Ramirez finished with three hits for the second consecutive night and scored three times. J.D. Drew added a two-run double for the Red Sox, who earned a 2-game split.

Josh Beckett pitched a season-high eight innings and stopped New York's 3-game winning streak. He's 2-1.
