Eric Frede has the headlines and highlights for Saturday, September 7th, including a wild Red Sox rally in the Bronx.

* The Yankees held an 8-3 lead after Andy Pettitte had kept the Sox in check for six innings.

Enter the bullpen.

Phil Hughes quickly allowed a run and then loaded the bases in the seventh.

With Hughes a strike away from getting out of the jam, Mike Napoli launched a 3-2 pitch to right field that bounced off the top of the right field wall for a game-tying grand slam.

Shane Victorino launched a two-run homer in the eighth inning off Preston Claiborne to give the Sox a lead that they would not relinquish.

Koji Uehara worked a perfect ninth.
