Running wild: The Yankees stole three bases in the first inning. When Eduardo Nunez and Brennan Boesch pulled off a double-steal, C Russell Martin threw the ball into center field. Nunez scored on the error.

Flashing leather: 2B Josh Harrison made a fantastic defensive play in the sixth, running all out and making a diving grab of Kevin Youkillis' blooper in shallow CF.

Stock up: 3B Pedro Alvarez lined a double off the CF wall and also ripped an RBI double into the RF corner.

Stock down: LHP Mike Zagurski has given up costly homers in back-to-back outings. Sunday, he served up Melky Mesa's grand slam. Thursday, he yielded a game-losing solo shot against the Phillies.
