Judge, Severino lead Yankees past Red Sox


Matt Shoemaker got his first win since having brain surgery after being struck in the head by a line drive late last season, and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Oakland Athletics 8-5. "Glad I was able to get two runs on the board early against a former Cy Young victor (Boston's Rick Porcello)".

While the Red Sox seem to be past the flu that decimated the club in the first 10 days of the season, the injuries have piled up.

YANKEES KEY TRENDS: The Yankees are now 11-3 in their last 14 games after beating the Red Sox 3-1 on Wednesday.

The steady all-day rain before game time wiped out Judge's chance to walk the vast Fenway right field beforehand.

"Sanchez is doing well, he threw from 120 feet [Wednesday]", Joe Girardi said of his front-line catcher, who hasn't played since April 8 when he left a game against the Orioles in Baltimore with a right biceps problem.

"I was very concerned (at first)", Girardi said. "I was making good pitches". The blast gave him 15 RBI on the season - the most on the Yankees.

Severino struck out six and walked two, posting his third straight strong start. He did not lose consecutive starts last season. ". The walks come back to hurt you so got to limit that".

Pedroia has notably spent his entire 12-year big league career as a member of the Red Sox.

Asked if he'd ever tumbled over before to make a catch, Judge smiled and said: "I have before but never at Fenway Park". "He put a good swing on it". 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. 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. Andrew Benintendi walked and Mookie Betts doubled off the Monster.
