Boesch lifts Yankees to 3-2 win over Rockies

DENVER (AP) - Pinch-hitter Brennan Boesch hit a tiebreaking infield single with the bases loaded in the ninth off closer Rafael Betancourt and the New York Yankees snapped a five-game skid at Coors Field with a 3-2 win over the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday night.

Vernon Wells had a two-run homer in the first and scored the decisive run when third baseman Nolan Arenado couldn't throw out a hustling Boesch after a diving stop.

David Robertson (2-0) earned the win by working out of a jam in the eighth and Mariano Rivera pitched the ninth for his 12th save in 12 chances.
