BOSTON - Adrian Gonzalez had four of Boston's 19 hits, adding four RBIs on Friday night, as the Red Sox welcomed the Chicago Cubs back to Fenway Park for the first time since the 1918 World Series by beating the National League side, 15-5.

Kevin Youkilis had two doubles and a two-run homer, and Jacoby Ellsbury also had three hits for Boston, which won its seventh consecutive game. The Red Sox are 22-10 since losing 10 of their first 12 games; they have passed the New York Yankees for the first time this season, and now trail the AL East-leading Tampa Bay Rays by just a half-game.

Jon Lester (6-1) won his sixth straight decision despite giving up a career-high 12 hits. He allowed five runs, two walks and a hit batter, striking out five.

The last time the Cubs visited Fenway, Chicago hitters were trying to break through against ace pitcher Babe Ruth, the Great War was still raging in France, and Boston's ballpark was still a novelty.

At the time, they were the two most successful clubs in baseball. The Red Sox already owned four Series championships, while the Cubs were coming off their fifth NL pennant in 13 years.

The Red Sox wrapped up the title in six games despite scoring only nine runs, and the clincher drew just 15,238 fans.

Nearly a century later, the Cubs finally headed back for the rematch.

"This is a great series for the fans," Red Sox manager Terry Francona, who was a part-time player for the Cubs in 1986, said before the game.

Souvenir shops were hawking all kinds of Cubs-Red Sox merchandise, including a green T-shirt that read: "THE GREEN MONSTER. NO IVY ON THIS WALL."

Mets 2, Yankees 1

NEW YORK - R.A. Dickey regained command of his knuckleball and confounded the Yankees for six innings, Daniel Murphy homered, and a youthful Mets lineup won the Subway Series opener Friday night in front of a surprisingly lackluster Yankee Stadium crowd.

Justin Turner had three hits, including a tying double off Freddy Garcia (2-4) to give him an RBI in six straight games. Jose Reyes made a run-saving play at shortstop and Francisco Rodriguez converted his 15th straight save for the resurgent Mets, winners of 10 of 14.

Mark Teixeira homered for the Yankees, who have lost six straight at home for the first time since 2003.

K-Rod, pitching in the Mets' fifth consecutive game, worked a 1-2-3 ninth. The bullpen put up three perfect innings in relief of Dickey (2-5).

Astros 5, Blue Jays 2

TORONTO - Chris Johnson hit a tiebreaking two-run homer in the ninth as Houston rallied to beat Toronto.

The Astros (16-29), owners of the worst record in baseball, had lost five straight and 10 of 12 going in, but rallied to win despite trailing, 2-0, through seven innings.

Toronto lefthander Jo-Jo Reyes looked poised to end a 26-start winless streak after pitching seven shutout innings. But Reyes saw his misery extended when Hunter Pence tied it with a two-run, two-out double off Jon Rauch in the eighth. The blown save was Rauch's second of the season.

Matt Downs drew a one-out walk off Frank Francisco (1-1) in the ninth and Johnson followed with a two-run shot.

Indians 5, Reds 4

CLEVELAND - Rookie pinch-hitter Ezequiel Carrera bunted home Shin-Soo Choo from third base with two outs in the eighth inning, sending Cleveland past Cincinnati in the Ohio Showdown's series opener.

Carrera, called up from triple-A Columbus earlier in the day by the injury-hit Indians, dropped the first pitch from Nick Masset down the first-base line, scoring Choo, who had tripled off Bill Bray (1-1). The speedy Carrera was able to avoid a tag by first baseman Joey Votto to notch an unforgettable hit in his first at-bat in the majors.

Vinnie Pestano (1-0) got two outs in the eighth for his first career win. Chris Perez worked the ninth for his 11th save in 12 tries.

Royals 3, Cardinals 0

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Jeff Francis went 72/3 innings, outdueling Chris Carpenter to lead Kansas City to victory over St. Louis.

Francis (1-5), who had pitched well several times while failing to get his first win since signing with the Royals, was facing a team he had always fared well against while playing in the National League. The righthander gave up six hits and two runs, walked two and struck out six while raising his career record over the Cardinals to 5-1.

For most of the game, Francis and Carpenter (1-4) were locked in a mirror-image duel. Through six innings, they had both thrown 76 pitches and allowed five hits and no runs. Carpenter had walked none and struck out five. Francis had walked two and struck out five.

But that changed in the seventh when the Royals scored three runs on RBI hits by Wilson Betemit, Alcides Escobar and Melky Cabrera.

BALTIMORE - Danny Espinosa homered and drove in five runs, Jayson Werth hit two homers and had four RBIs, and Washington had its biggest offensive outing since moving to the nation's capital in a rout of Baltimore.

Roger Bernadina, Wilson Ramos and Laynce Nix also homered for the Nationals, who had a season-high 19 hits. The six homers also set a Nats record.

Henry Rodriguez (1-0) worked three scoreless innings for the victory.

CHICAGO - Russell Mitchell tied the game with a two-out homer in the ninth inning, and Juan Castro had the go-ahead single in a three-run 10th as Los Angeles rallied to beat Chicago.

Jamey Carroll started the 10th with a single off Sergio Santos (2-1), and Matt Kemp singled one out later.

Castro, a seventh-inning replacement after second baseman Juan Uribe left with a hip flexor injury, then dumped an RBI single over first base. James Loney followed with an RBI double, and Jay Gibbons greeted Will Ohman with a run-scoring single.

Mitchell, who entered batting .091 and was 0 for 3, tied it with a drive down the left field line off Santos, who had not given up a run all season over 20 innings and blew his first save in seven chances.
