Unit struggles, but Yanks win

May 25, 2006


— Randy Johnson had another rough outing, but Melky Cabrera's four RBIs led the New York Yankees to an 8-6 victory over the Boston Red Sox despite two long homers by Manny Ramirez on Wednesday night.

Johnson (6-4) allowed at least five runs for the sixth time in eight starts before settling down after Jason Varitek's single put Boston ahead 5-4 with no outs in the third. Johnson struck out the next three batters and retired nine of the last 10 he faced before leaving after five innings. His earned-run average rose from 5.62 to 5.89 while he allowed nine hits.
