BOSTON (AP) _ Yangervis Solarte drove in four runs, Mark Teixeira hit his first homer of the season and the New York Yankees capitalized on five Boston errors to beat the Red Sox 14-5 on Thursday night.

CC Sabathia (3-2) struck out eight while allowing two runs on three hits in six innings as the Yankees rebounded from a 5-1 loss Wednesday night in which starter Michael Pineda was ejected in the second inning for having pine tar on his neck.

Pineda was suspended for 10 games on Thursday and said he wouldn’t appeal. He will miss two starts.

Neither team played a clean game Thursday. The Red Sox walked 12 batters _ five by knuckleball throwing infielder Mike Carp _ hit one and had three wild pitches and a passed ball. They also allowed three stolen bases, all in the third inning.
