NEW YORK (AP) -- CC Sabathia outpitched John Lackey, Ramiro Pena drove in two runs while subbing for injured Alex Rodriguez and the New York Yankees stopped their mini-slide by beating the Boston Red Sox 5-2 on Saturday.
Rodriguez was hit in the lower left leg by Lance Berkman's sharp grounder during batting practice, and medical personnel ran onto the field to check him. X-rays were negative and there was no indication when the All-Star third baseman would return to the lineup.
Robinson Cano hit a go-ahead single in the fifth inning for the Yankees, who had kept the best record in the majors despite losing four of their previous five games.
Sabathia (14-5) shook off an early homer by Victor Martinez and matched Tampa Bay's David Price for the AL wins lead.
