NEW YORK — Before Friday’s 10-8 victory over the Yankees, manager Terry Francona said he hadn’t heard the word spoiler associated with his team.

Afterward, Bill Hall made it clear the Red Sox didn’t plan on filling that role at any point this season.

“I don’t think anybody in this clubhouse is throwing in the towel,” said Hall, whose three-run homer in the fifth inning on Friday supplied the eventual game-winning runs. “I don’t think spoiler is what we’re looking for. We’re looking to win out.”  (, with video)
