Luis Severino made his first start for the Yankees after a series in the 2019 American League, when the Yankees improved to 2-0 for the first time since 2018.

Stanton broke a 2-2 draw when he knocked down a 0-1 slider from Nick Piveta (0-1) in the front row of the left-hand grandstand, 437 feet above the Boston bullpen. Stanton and Rizzo became the first players in the history of the Yankees, which Homer together in the first two games of the season.

Stanton’s six-game home run against the Red Sox included a drive in last year’s AL wild card game, a 6-2 loss to the Yankees.

Your players have hosted five consecutive games against Boston: Mickey Mantle (1954), Ken Griffi Jr. (1996-97) and Jim Tom (1997).

After discovering as a designated striker on Friday, Stanton played on the right. Stanton hit nine of 35 Homers last year in 16 games as an outfielder.

Alex Verdugo hit Homer with two runs in the 31st run of the second inning against Severino, who returned late last season from Tommy John’s operation. The 28-year-old All-Star right-hander, winner of 19 games in 2018, conceded five goals in three innings, hit five and failed none. He threw 65 pitches, including 35 fast balls with four stitches, averaging 97.8 miles per hour.

Six revelers followed Severino in inning, each with unperturbed relief. Lucas Luetge (1-0) placed sixth and Aroldis Chapman avoided a mistake in throwing a new short stop Isiah Kiner-Falefa for his first save.

Boston fell to 0-2 for the second consecutive season.

Piveta allowed four runs and four hits in 5 ⅔ innings.

At a time in defense that was overshadowed by the defeat of Boston, Enrique Hernandez made a jumping catch in the center fence of the field to save Aaron Judge from an extra-base strike. The referee’s drive would be a home run at 21 stadiums.

WASHINGTON – Pete Alonso turned his bat when his first Grand Slam tournament broke the tie in the fifth inning, then put his index finger to his mouth, as if drowning out the audience after celebrating with his teammates near the plate, raising the Mets to 5. – 0 victory over Washington Nationals on Saturday night.

Chris Bassit went through six innings in his debut at the Mets and New York won his third straight to open Buck Shawolter’s term as manager. The Mets beat Washington 17-4 and will go into the series on Sunday.

About 48 hours were removed from the bleeding of his lower lip from the field – part of a series of Mets that were broken during the first three games of the season, which interrupted the cleaning of the benches on Friday – Alonso sent 91 miles per hour fast ball by Joan Adon (0-1) over the fence to the left at 2-1.

The Mets filled the bases with one and a couple of walks against Adon, whose first major league appearance came on the last day of the 2021 regular season. The Mets sang a chorus of his full name near the visiting dugout.

He took the ball off his face in the ninth inning on the first day after teammate James McCann was hit twice earlier. Then the Mets’ short stop Francisco Lindor was defeated in match 2, which caused a clash on the field between the two clubs and two pushes. The fifth hit on the field came in the third inning on Saturday, when Starling Marte was hit by Adon’s meandering ball – but this time Showalter remained in his dugout, watching with folded arms.

The day after former national team star Max Scherzer won his first start for New York, Bassit – also the right hand of all the stars – did the same.

Bassit (1-0), who arrived from Auckland Athletics in exchange last month, gave up just three singles – only one of which left the field – in six innings. He threw eight and passed one.

The recovering nationals attracted a crowd of 21,369 people.
