With Derek Jeter a DH, Yankees fall to Red Sox

BOSTON – Derek Jeter went 1 for 2 with an infield single and left for a pinch hitter in the fifth inning. Even he wasn’t going to pull the Yankees out of this hole in the next-to-last game of his 20-year big league career. Boston chased Masahiro Tanaka during an eight-run second inning that backed Joe Kelly, and the Boston Red Sox beat New York 10-4 on Saturday. After sitting out Friday night’s series opener following his emotional Yankee Stadium finale the previous night, Jeter returned to his usual second spot in the lineup but as the designated hitter, not the shortstop. He received standing ovations before each at bat as fans chanted “De-rek Je-ter! De-rek Je-ter!” He struck out on three pitches in the first – a called strike on the outside corner, a foul down the first base line and a swing. In the third he hit a high bouncer over Kelly’s head.
