Boston Red Sox defeat New York Yankees, 6-4

NEW YORK - With the rain pouring down and putting the night's firsts in jeopardy, the Red Sox took note of the plush contents of the new Yankee Stadium.

They were wowed by the amenities, confused about finding their way around, and interested to see whether it might hold up to the previous version.

As David Ortiz said, "I liked the old place. But they did a nice building. And everything is about the memories, you know? It's our first game here. After the years, you will...

The Red Sox got their first look at the new Yankee Stadium Monday night and quickly made themselves at home.

For the fourth straight time, the Bombers - who were swept last weekend at Fenway - fell to their rivals, this time 6-4 after a two-hour and 17-minute rain delay.

Boston rode a strong start by Jon Lester and another big home run by Jason Bay before Jonathan Papelbon struck out Robinson Cano with the bases loaded in the ninth to complete a five-out save.
