NEW YORK (AP) – Xander Bogaerts homered among his four hits and fellow rookie Mookie Betts also went deep during a big night at the plate to power the Boston Red Sox past the New York Yankees 9-4 on Tuesday.

Daniel Nava hit a three-run shot and Yoenis Cespedes tripled, doubled and singled to back Joe Kelly’s first win with Boston. Betts had three hits and slumping Mike Napoli hit two sacrifice flies for the Red Sox, who have won eight of their last 11 road games.

The 21-year-old Bogaerts drove in two runs and finished a triple short of the cycle. He and Betts, born six days apart in October 1992, became the first pair of Red Sox rookies to homer at Yankee Stadium in the same game since Dick Gernert and Faye Throneberry on Aug. 9, 1952, according to a note the team posted on Twitter.

Pedroia still out

Second baseman Dustin Pedroia is out of the Red Sox lineup for the third consecutive game because of concussion-like symptoms.

Versatile rookie Brock Holt was set to play second again Tuesday night in the opener of a three-game set against the New York Yankees. Red Sox manager John Farrell said Monday he was not optimistic about Pedroia playing in the series, which marks Boston’s final visit to Yankee Stadium this season.

Farrell says Pedroia didn’t feel quite right when he tried some activity Monday, spending a little time in the batting cage, and the 2008 AL MVP is still dealing with symptoms, such as inconsistent sleep.

Farrell says the team needs to go day by day and be cautious.

Pedroia left Saturday night’s loss to Tampa Bay in the second inning. He was elbowed in the head by Logan Forsythe, who was sliding headfirst into second.
