Red Sox beat Yankees, keep wild card lead

The Boston Red Sox kept their noses in front in the American League wild card race after Jacoby Ellsbury's three-run homer in the 14th inning gave them a 7-4 win over the New York Yankees in the second game of a double header on Sunday.

The win snapped a four-game losing streak, which included a 6-2 loss in opener of the double bill, and allowed the Red Sox to remain one game ahead of the charging Tampa Bay Rays in the AL wild card race with three games remaining.

Tampa Bay hit four home runs, including an inside-the-park drive by Ben Zobrist, to beat the Toronto Blue Jays 5-2 and keep the heat on Boston.

"Any time you're in a run for the wild card, and you allow your team to get a win, it can't really get too much bigger," Ellsbury said. "We've got to win these games to get in the playoffs. I view it as these are playoff games for us."
