Christian Vazquez homered Tuesday as the Red Sox dropped the first half of a doubleheader versus the Yankees. The fifth-inning solo shot off Yankees left-hander Jordan Montgomery was Vazquez's first home run since June 27 and just his fifth home run in 103 total games this year. He's really taken a step back offensively.
