By Brad Greer
Luke Daniels raced home on a wild pitch to score the winning run in the bottom of the sixth inning to give the Red Sox a 4-3 victory over the Yankees Thursday night in American Legion play.

Daniels provided the Sox (2-1) lone hit with a sixth inning single and also picked up the pitching win in relief of James Kyle Browning and Ryan McCurdy.

Trailing 2-1 heading into their final at bat, Browning led off the inning with a walk then advanced to second on Daniels’ single. Lige Simmerman and Bailey Tatum followed with walks before Daniels sprinted home with the game-winning run.
