NEW YORK -- Sandy Leon homered and drove in four runs, Eduardo Rodriguez again dominated the Yankees in his return from Triple-A and the Boston Red Sox beat New York 5-2 on Saturday to win their season-high sixth straight.Leon hit his second homer this season and the third of his career in the sixth inning -- a three-run shot off CC Sabathia for a 5-1 lead. The Venezuelan has 13 RBI in 20 games this season after getting eight in 75 games for his career prior to that.Leon also helped Rodriguez (2-3), his Venezuelan countryman, hold New York to a run on four hits over seven innings after the Red Sox recalled the left-hander Friday. Rodriguez improved to 4-1 with a 2.01 ERA career against Bostons archrival.Sabathia (5-7) allowed five runs, four earned, in 5 1/3 innings, giving up five or more runs for the fifth straight start. Boston chipped away at the big lefty by reaching base mostly on soft, well-placed contact and a couple New York errors until Leons homer.Koji Uehara closed for his sixth save.Leon added an RBI single in the fourth. His hot hitting has been timely for Boston, which has had catchers Blake Swihart, Christian Vazquez and Ryan Hanigan on the disabled list this season. The 27-year-old went into the All-Star break batting .455 (25 for 55), the highest first-half average ever in the majors, minimum 50 at-bats.Rodriguez opened the season on the disabled list with a knee injury, then posted an 8.59 ERA in six starts before being demoted to Triple-A Pawtucket. Boston believed Rodriguez was tipping his pitches and had him adjust his delivery during two starts in the minors.Rodriguez threw 97 pitches Saturday, working quickly against New Yorks veteran-heavy lineup. Rodriguez had previously struggled throwing to Leon, posting an 8.03 ERA in five starts, but the duo cruised early on a steady diet of fastballs and sliders.Brett Gardner ended a stretch of 180 homerless at-bats when he lined a solo shot into the Yankees bullpen in the third. It was his first homer since May 18 and his sixth of the season.Chase Headley had a solo homer, his eighth, to lead off the eighth for the Yankees against Matt Barnes.BUCHHOLZ TO THE BULLPENClay Buchholz has been moved to the bullpen to clear space in the rotation for newly acquired All-Star Drew Pomeranz. The Red Sox hope to keep Buchholz stretched out with multiple-inning outings and possibly a simulated game next week. The 10-year Boston veteran is 3-9 with a 5.91 ERA in 18 appearances this season, including 13 starts.The Red Sox also expect to activate Junichi Tazawa from the disabled list Tuesday and bring Joe Kelly up from Triple-A Pawtucket soon. Manager John Farrell said the team has not yet decided how to make room for those arms.TRAINERS ROOMRed Sox: Boston will activate Pomeranz on Sunday after acquiring the left-hander from San Diego in a trade Thursday. Pomeranz was expected to meet the Red Sox in New York on Saturday night and is slated to make his first start on Wednesday against San Francisco at Fenway Park.UP NEXTPrice (9-6, 4.34) pitches for Boston in a night game at Yankee Stadium coming off three straight games with exactly 10 strikeouts and one walk. Price leads the AL with 140 strikeouts, the most by a Red Sox left-hander prior to the All-Star break.

Chris Bigras Jersey . -- Patrick Reed got an early start in golf. Patrik Nemeth Jersey . Toronto has dropped games to Indiana and Miami since a five-game winning streak and closed out a three-game road trip at 1-2.Warrington, Widnes and Wigan have showed the best form ahead of crunch weekend but which team can gain the most? This is how Super League looks right now as we approach what is a significant Easter weekend.Warrington, Widnes and Wigan have been the best teams so far and the rest of the competition will be hoping that the bonus weekend, offering four points, can kick-start their season and spring them into the next stage with confidence. Widnes are the top try scorers with 42 so far, however, this next week will pose the toughest questions of the year. Widnes Joe Mellor has been a sensation so far this season Its worth mentioning that the team with the fewest tries are the current champions.Leeds have scored just 18 tries in six games and will be hoping that the harder pitches and warmer weather brings them out of hibernation.My prediction of Widnes not finishing in the top four could look a foolish one if the Vikings pick up four points with victories over Warrington and St Helens.Some of their success has been down to the sensational start to the season that Joe Mellor has made. Hes been absolutely brilliant to watch. Brian Carney previews the Easter weekend fixtures in Super League If he is fit, hell go head-to-head in the half-backs with Kurt Gidley and Chris Sandow at 3pm on Easter Monday, Theyve claimed most of the headlines in their recent successes for Warrington.Both have kicked tremendously and its mainly down to them that they lead the way for tries from kicks. A quarter of all Warringtons tries have featured a kick-play. Thats twice as many as other teams in the league. My prediction of Widnes not finishing in the top four could look a foolish one if the Vikings pick up four points with victories over Warrington and St Helens.dddddddddddd Phil Clarke Its a new dimension that wasnt there last year and its proving difficult for teams to defend against.The other aspect of Kirk Gidleys game thats making a difference is his goal kicking. He leads the charge with a plus 85 per cent success rate. That is ten per cent higher than the average Super League kicker.As the competition gets closer we might start to see that this makes a significant difference.This is my favourite time of the year. Weve a lot of games on Sky Sports and I cant wait. Jeff Stellings journey to Wembley involves walking ten marathons in ten days Juts as a footnote, I did the Men United walk with Jeff Stelling, Brian Carney, Barrie McDermott and Bill Arthur this week and Ive got absolutely huge respect for Jeff Stelling. We just did one of the ten days that hes doing on his march to Wembley and it was tough enough.I wish him all the best in the remaining days. It was a pleasure to spend time with him.
