Although Derek Jeter erased a Red Sox lead set up by four straight homers with one of his own, Scott Proctor gave up three hits, including the decisive long ball to Mike Lowell, in the seventh inning without recording an out. Jason Giambi carried the Yankees' offense early, driving in their first three runs of the game, but it wasn't enough to prevent a three-game sweep at the hands of their arch rivals from Boston.
The Red Sox tied a Major League record with homers in four straight at-bats in the third inning, and Mike Lowell, part of the historic run, put Boston up for good later with a three-run shot. Daisuke Matsuzaka won as the Sox swept the Yankees in Boston for the first time since 1990.
