New York Yankees @ Boston Red Sox, 4/11/18: Yankees Look To Bounce Back

Chris Sale #41 of the Boston Red Sox pitches against the New York Yankees during the first inning at Fenway Park on April 10, 2018 in Boston, Massachusetts. Luis Severino (2-1) took the loss after giving up five runs on eight hits with three walks and six strikeouts.

Boston's starting pitchers improved to 6-0 on the season on a night in which the temperature dipped into the 30s. The Red Sox haven't lost since opening day. Mookie Betts, Andrew Benintendi and Xander Bogaerts will not be the massive sluggers like Stanton or Judge, but they are hitters that will get on base and contribute to run scoring. The 116.3-mph blast was the hardest home run ever hit off the Red Sox ace. Sanchez allowed one run on three hits in eight innings while striking out four and working around five walks.

Mets 8, Marlins 6: Yoenis Cespedes grounded a two-run, ninth-inning double down the third base line to lead NY to a comeback win over host Miami.

Judge saw only three pitches in his first at-bat Tuesday, two in his second, and two in his third.

As it turned out, the Sox scored nine runs in the sixth to drain the energy out of the highly anticipated showdown while on their way to a 14-1 smackdown of the Yanks.

Chicago Cubs utility man Javier Baez went two for four with two home runs in an 8-5 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Brock Holt walked and Betts cleared the bases with his shot over the Green Monster to put the Red Sox up 14-1.

"Much of the treatment I've gotten over the years (in Boston) has been good-natured", Boone said.

"The at-bats, we've been more aggressive in the strike zone", Red Sox Manager Alex Cora said.

"When you're on time, then your mechanics come out", Boone said. Pomeranz wants one more start to "tune in his mechanics", Cora said, and will make it at Double-A Portland on Friday.

"We've been talking about this since November", Cora said of Betts. "He's still in his progression".

Phillies second baseman Scott Kingery hit Philadelphia's third grand slam in their last four games in a 6-1 win over the Cincinnati Reds.

The New York Yankees close out a three game series on the road with the AL East leading Boston Red Sox Thursday night.

Throughout spring training, Price expressed optimism that he was healthy again after making two trips to the disabled list and being limited to 11 starts last season because of elbow and forearm issues.
