Yankees 3, Red Sox 1

 Lowell brings home a run
Tim Wakefield issued a season-high six free passes as the Red Sox lost their first game against the Yankees this season. Kevin Youkilis and Mike Lowell each had two hits, but the heart of Boston's order -- David Ortiz, Manny Ramirez and J.D. Drew -- went a combined 0-for-9 in the Bronx.
