BOSTON — Despite his .204 average, Andruw Jones again was in the lineup against lefthander Felix Doubront. “People are going to run lefties against us,” Joe Girardi said. “He needs to be productive. We need to see what he’s done in the past for us.” Jones lined a sacrifice fly in the fourth inning to give the Yankees a 1-0 lead.
