Alex Verdugo drove in a run to forge a tie in the eighth inning and ripped a two-run single in the 10th to rally the host Boston Red Sox to a 6-5 victory over the New York Yankees on Saturday.

Staked to a 5-3 lead, Wandy Peralta (2-2) allowed a single by former Yankees farmhand Rob Refsnyder to put runners on the corners. Jeter Downs recorded his first career hit with an RBI single to halve the deficit, and Yankees third baseman Josh Donaldson bobbled a grounder that spoiled a chance at a game-ending double play.
