NEW YORK (AP) -- Derek Jeter capped a six-run second inning with a three-run homer, rookie Jesus Montero had four RBIs in finishing a triple shy of the cycle and the New York Yankees stunned the reeling Boston Red Sox early in a 9-1 victory Saturday.

Boston dropped to 4-15 since holding a nine-game lead over the Rays in the AL wild-card race on Sept. 4. Tampa Bay went into Saturday night's game at Toronto trailing by two games.

The Red Sox and Yankees play a day-night doubleheader Sunday before Boston travels to Baltimore for a season-ending three-game series.
