BOSTON (AP) -Mike Lowell dished out the big hits - with his body and his bat.
Lowell homered to start a Red Sox comeback and also flattened two Yankees in a pair of basepath collisions on Saturday as Boston beat New York 11-6.
First baseman Doug Mientkiewicz was taken from the field on a cart after banging his head on Lowell's hip while trying to one-hop a bad throw from shortstop Derek Jeter.
The Red Sox loaded the bases with nobody out in the seventh against Scott Proctor (0-3) before Lowell hit a grounder to second. Robinson Cano flipped to second for the force, but Jeter spun around and threw an 85-footer that Mientkiewicz tried to backhand on the outfield side of the bag.
Mientkiewicz remained on the ground for several minutes while the Yankees' medical staff attended to him. Mientkiewicz was helped into a golf cart and taken to Massachusetts General Hospital for precautionary tests.
Hideki Okajima (1-0) retired all four batters he faced for his first major league victory. Kevin Youkilis' 23-game hitting streak was stopped.
Blue Jays 9, White Sox 3
