Jeter starts Yankees' home run onslaught

Associated Press

Derek Jeter hit the first pitch of the game for one of New York's five home runs against Josh Beckett, CC Sabathia became the majors' first 15-game winner and the Yankees beat the Boston Red Sox, 8-4, Sunday night.

The expected pitchers duel between the American League's only 14-game winners never materialized, as the Yankees scored in each of the first five innings against Beckett (14-5) and the Red Sox had four runs against Sabathia (15-7) before he left with two outs in the seventh.
