The Red Sox scored six runs in the final two innings, erasing a four-run Yankee lead before hanging on for a 7-6 win over the Bombers. At 4 hours, 9 minutes, it was the longest nine-inning game in the majors this season, according to STATS LLC.[link url=http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/baseball/yankees/2010/05/18/2010-05-18_joba_chamberlain_and_mariano_rivera_let_boston_red_sox_come_back_on_new_york_yan.html]
