Final shot dooms Dice-K
Yankees 5, Red Sox 3
Daisuke Matsuzaka took his third straight loss on Tuesday night. (Bill Kostroun/AP)
 Varitek's solo home run
 Ramirez's long ball
Daisuke Matsuzaka took a tied game into the seventh inning thanks to a solo homer by Jason Varitek, but Johnny Damon pulled his new team one game closer to his former one with a two-run homer to the shortest part of the park, putting the Yankees up to stay. Manny Ramirez left with back spasms and may miss Wednesday's game.
