Red Sox versus Yankees postponed on Tuesday

Game Summary: The Yankees took an early 2-0 lead in the top of the second inning with an Aaron Judge home run.

Two ex-Red Sox factored into the Yankees' 3-1 win at Fenway on Wednesday night, the first meeting of the rivals in 2017. The 6-7, 280-pound rightfielder laced a two-run homer in the second inning, banana-slicing a pitch from Rick Porcello (1-3) to rightfield.

Sale's most recent start against the Yankees came last May 13, when he allowed one run over nine innings, striking out six and not walking a batter.

Porcello wasn't bad, allowing three runs (two earned) and five hits in 6 2⁄3, but he was outpitched by Severino, who again excelled with his fastball command. That's easier to see than the long foul ball hit by Josh Rutledge in the ninth inning that, had Sox manager John Farrell not "lost it in the fog", would've looked for a moment like it might win the game against Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman.

"My adrenaline was pumping, so I didn't feel too much when I went in there", said Judge, who reported he had emerged unscathed after the game.

However, the next four pitches were all balls and Judge drew a walk.

The vast operation targeted big cities such as Istanbul as well as Izmir in western Turkey and Konya in the Anatolian heartland. Erdogan has repeatedly said he will wipe out the "virus" of Gulen from state institutions after the failed coup.


"It's pretty awesome", Judge said. Tony Watson got four outs for his seventh save in as many chances.

The series became known as the "Boston Massacre", as the Yankees swept all four games by a combined score of 42-9.

Yankees: SS Didi Gregorius was 2 for 3, including a solo homer, for Class A Tampa against Clearwater. The Red Sox got past the flu that swept through their clubhouse and pitching injuries, and now have Pedroia missing two games after the spiking. Alex Cobb (1-2, 4.88) is up for the Rays. It'll be his first start since he injured his knee and ankle last Friday on a controversial takeout slide by Manny Machado.

Andrew Benintendi walked and Mookie Betts doubled off the wall in left to put a pair of runners in scoring position with nobody out. In 53 2/3 innings, he's held Yankee hitters to a paltry.165 batting average and.481 OPS. The series continues Wednesday with staff aces Masahiro Tanaka and Chris Sale set to clash, and wraps up on Thursday with a projected matchup of CC Sabathia vs.
