Swisher, Yankees strut past Red Sox

The Red Sox dropped the first game of their three-game series in New York.

Nick Swisher bashed a pair of home runs and the Yankees overcame a four-run third inning from the Red Sox Friday in the Bronx to win, 6-4.

The Red Sox fell to 58-62 on the season.

Dustin Pedroia had a three-run homer to account for three of the Sox four runs in the third, but it was not enough for Boston to hold off their arch-rivals.
