Rodriguez's homer wins game in 15th

Associated Press

Alex Rodriguez broke up an electric pitchers' duel in the 15th inning with his first homer in three weeks, giving the New York Yankees a 2-0 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Friday night.

A day after the Yankees bashed Boston, 13-6, A.J. Burnett of the Yankees and Josh Beckett set the tone in a game that became the rivals' longest scoreless matchup.

Burnett and five relievers combined on a four-hitter in the first Boston-New York game to go into extra innings scoreless since 1976

Derek Jeter singled to lead off the 15th and Rodriguez lined a shot off Junichi Tazawa (0-1), who was making his major league debut, to left-center with two out to give New York its 10th walk-off win of the season.
