Sept. 8, 2013 at 6:45 PM

NEW YORK, Sept. 8 (UPI) -- Ichiro Suzuki came home with the winning run on a wild pitch in the bottom of the ninth inning Sunday, handing the New York Yankees a 4-3 win over Boston.

Suzuki collected a one-out single off Brandon Workman (5-3) in the ninth inning, stole second and went to third on Vernon Wells' fly ball out.

Then, with Alfonso Soriano at the plate, Workman uncorked a wild pitch, allowing Suzuki to score.

Robinson Cano went 3-for-4 with two RBI for New York, which avoided a three-game sweep at the hands of the American League East leaders.

Mariano Rivera (5-2) earned the win despite allowing a score-tying solo homer to Will Middlebrooks in the top of the ninth.

Middlebrooks and Mike Carp each provided an RBI for the Red Sox, whose five-game winning streak was snapped.
