BOSTON, July 7 (UPI) -- Pedro Ciriaco went 3-for-5 with three RBI in his Red Sox debut Saturday and Boston dispatched the New York Yankees 9-5 to split a day-night doubleheader.
Ciriaco, an infielder called up from Class AAA Pawtucket Friday to replace the injured Dustin Pedroia, cracked a bases-clearing double in the sixth inning to erase a 3-2 Red Sox deficit.
Mauro Gomez added three hits, including an RBI double, and Adrian Gonzalez went 3-for-5 with a pair of runs scored as the Bosox banged out 16 hits to claim their first win in a four-game series against the Yankees.
Felix Doubront (9-4) earned the victory despite allowing four runs (three earned) on four hits in a 6 1/3-inning start. The Bosox left-hander walked one and struck out six.
New York starter Phil Hughes (9-7) was touched 10 hits over 5 1/3 frames, yielding five runs (three earned).
Mark Teixeira blasted a three-run homer for the American League East-leading Yankees.
