This time, Cano grounded into a force at second base, driving in a run.
The increasingly unreliable Tazawa was next out of the bullpen. The Sox went into a defensive shift against Soriano and he poked a single through the vacated spot at second base. That scored Gardner.
Tazawa then left a split-finger fastball up that Curtis Granderson smoked off the wall in right field. Cano scored but Victorino relayed the ball in quickly to keep Soriano at third base.
Tazawa struck out Rodriguez but could not dispatch Overbay. He grounded a 1-and-2 pitch into right field to score two runs and give the Yankees an 8-7 lead.
The Yankees sent 10 batters to the plate in the inning, scoring six runs on five hits. Peavy was charged with four runs on six hits over six innings. He walked three and struck out four.
