Damon, in his third visit to Boston since signing with the Yankees as a free agent last winter, is having a tremendous series. He was 3-for-6 with three doubles, a run scored and an RBI in yesterday's 13-5 victory and has nine hits in 18 at-bats in the first three games so far, eliciting boos from the Fenway fans who once would've treasured a lock of his famous long hair.

In addition to the three doubles yesterday, Damon homered in each game of Friday's day-night doubleheader and also had a triple. He has eight RBI and five runs scored. Over his last eight games against the Red Sox, Damon is batting .472 (17-for-36) with 12 RBI and nine runs after going 1-for-16 (.063) in his first four games against Boston.

The two-homer day Friday made him only the fifth player to hit at least 20 homers for both the Red Sox and Yankees, joining Babe Ruth, Don Baylor, Jack Clark and Mike Stanley. Damon has seven homers this month, tied with Travis Hafner for the most in the AL in August. [daily news]
