  NEW YORK —Jon Lester shut down the Yankees offence for seven innings,
Adrian Gonzalez provided an early lead with a two-run homer and the Boston Red
Sox beat New York 4-1 Saturday for a badly needed win. Jake Long Jersey . Yankees nemesis
Pedro Ciriaco was 4 for 4, raising his average against New York this year to
.517 (15 for 29), and Boston reliever Craig Breslow and catcher Ryan Lavarnway
became what is thought to be the first all-Yale battery in the major leagues
since 1883. The fourth-place Red Sox won for just the fourth time in 11 games as
they try to right their foundering season. Lester (7-10) won consecutive starts
for the first time since mid-May, allowing five hits with four strikeouts and
two walks. Curtis Granderson homered in the fourth for the Yankees only run,
then doubled leading off the seventh only to be stranded on third. Before
defeating Cleveland 14-1 last Sunday, Lester had gone 0-5 with a 7.49 ERA in
seven starts from the start of July. He had trouble locating at first and needed
24 pitches to get through his opening inning, when Derek Jeters walk and
Nick Swishers single gave the Yankees two on with no outs. He struck out
Robinson Cano, retired Andruw Jones on a slow bouncer to third and fanned
Casey McGehee. After Andrew Bailey started the eighth and gave up a one-out
single to Swisher, Breslow induced an inning-ending, double-play grounder from
Cano, who is in a 1-for-21 skid. Ryan Lavarnway was behind the plate, and
according to STATS LLC and baseballreference.com, the only previous all-Yale
battery was in 1883 when the Philadelphia Athletics Jack Jones pitched to Al
Hubbard. The Red Sox said they had been talking with Yale in recent days and had
not yet been able to confirm that. Alfredo Aceves pitched the ninth for his 25th
save in 31 chances. David Phelps (3-4), making his second spot start while
CC Sabathia is on the disabled list, gave up three runs and seven hits in 6 2-3
innings, struck out seven and walked none. He fanned Cody Ross three times, all
on breaking balls. Swisher had three hits and is hitting .348 (16 for 46) since
he was moved into the No. 2 slot in the batting order. Boston moved ahead right
away. Carl Crawford singled with one out in the first and stole second, and with
two outs Gonzalez homered into the left-field seats. Grandersons 32nd homer—
his 11th off a left-hander—cut the deficit in the fourth. Boston came right
back in the fifth when Ciriaco singled with one out and scored on Nick Puntos
double into the right-field corner. Punto helped Lester avoid trouble in the
fifth. Ichiro Suzuki singled with one out and stole second, and Jeter hit a hard
one-hopper to third. The ball bounced off Puntos glove into the air, and he
grabbed the ball with his bare hand and threw to first for the out. Swisher then
struck out on a check swing. Ciriaco doubled in the ninth, sending
Scott Podsednik to third, and Cody Eppley threw a run-scoring wild pitch. NOTES:
Red Sox LHP Brian Johnson, a first-round draft pick in June, was hit on the face
with a line drive in a Future Games at Bostons Fenway Park. Johnson sustained
multiple orbital bone fractures on the left side of his face, Red Sox
spokeswoman Pam Ganley said. He was taken to a hospital, where she said he was
resting comfortably. There were no signs of a concussion. ... The AL East will
meet the NL West in interleague play next year, according to the draft schedule
MLB sent to teams. The Yankees are to play San Francisco and Arizona at home and
to travel to Los Angeles, San Diego and Colorado. ... Dustin Pedroia doubled in
the eighth, extending his hitting streak to 13 games. ... INF Mauro Gomez was
recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket and LHP Felix Doubront was placed on the 15-day
DL with a bruised right knee. The Doubront move was retroactive to Aug. 10, and
the Red Sox expect he will rejoin the rotation as soon as hes eligible to come
off the DL. Reggie Bush Jersey . A comment on a verified

next week in Hartford, Conn. CHARLESTON, S.C. —Serena Williams capped a
dominant week with another powerful performance to beat Lucie Safarova 6-0, 6-1
and capture her first clay-court tournament in four years at the Family Circle
Cup on Sunday. Williams didnt drop a set in five matches this week and lost only
three games over the weekend, dispatching Samantha Stosur, 6-1, 6-1 in the
semifinals before ousting Safarova. She hadnt won a tournament on clay—or
even gotten to a final on the surface—since taking the 2008 championship
here. Williams has said throughout the week how comfortable she felt in her
short time on clay this year. That showed against the 25-year-old Safarova,
ranked 26th in the world. Williams served a 107-mph ace on match point,
shrieking in joy and waving to the crowd. Williams came into the week off a trip
to the quarterfinals at the Sony Ericsson Open and had just a day or so to get
in any work on the slower clay at the Family Circle Tennis Center. She looked
rusty in her opening match, a 6-3, 6-4 victory over Elena Vesnina on Tuesday.
But Williams came back in her next match with a strong attitude and a much
sharper game. She took out Marina Erakovic 6-2, 6-2 and was in control early in
her quarterfinals win over Sabine Lisicki, who retired after twisting her left
ankle. Williams was at her best, though, on the weekend. She didnt give Stosur,
the reigning U.S. Open champion, room to breathe in the semifinals. Williams
concluded the clay-court run with her win over Safaroova.dddddddddddd How
dominant was Williams serve? She was not broken in 24 service games over her
last four matches. “She was amazing,” said Safarova, who fell to 0-5 against
Williams. “She deserves to be the champion.” And Williams may be prepared to win
even more this clay-court season. Shes not scheduled to play again until next
month in Madrid, then at the Italian Open before moving on the Paris for the
years second Grand Slam, the French Open. Williams has talked frequently this
week of her desire to add another title at Roland Garros—she won her only
French crown in 2002—to her Hall-of-Fame resume of 13 major championships.
She also talked about moving to Paris. The Family Circle Cup victory was a great
start to her clay-court season. Williams also was happy to honour the 40th
anniversary of the Family Circle tournament and the legacy of womens tennis. The
tournament named its stadium court for tennis great and pioneer Billie Jean
King, who was on court during Williams trophy ceremony. King and members of the
Original 9 players, who defied the tennis establishment to form the first womens
tour and fight for better prize money, were saluted during the weekend Williams
earned $115,000 for the victory, a far cry from the first Family Circle in 1973
that offered a then-unheard of $100,000 in total prize money. “I want to thank,
Billie,” Williams said. “Without her, I dont know if any of us would be here.” ’
