BOSTON, July 19 (UPI) -- Boston jumped in front on home runs by Jacoby Ellsbury and Jonny Gomes Friday and the Red Sox held on to defeat the New York Yankees 4-2.

The Red Sox had lost their two games prior to the All-Star break, but four pitchers limited the Yankees to five hits and one earned run.

Ellsbury hit a solo homer in the first and Gomes added a two-run shot in the second in support of Felix Doubront (7-3).

Doubront went 6 1/3 innings, allowing both New York runs on three hits with five strikeouts. Koji Uehara needed just seven pitches to get through the ninth for his ninth save.

Andy Pettitte (7-7) was charged with the loss after surrendering four runs on six hits in 6 1/3.

New York has dropped three in a row and six of its last nine.
