Giancarlo Stanton became the first player to kill Homer against Boston in six games in a row, making in the sixth inning a productive double, which gave the Yankees a 4-2 victory over the Red Sox on Saturday.
Anthony Rizzo homered for the second day in a row to start the Yankees ’return from an early deficit by tying two run runs in the fourth.
Yankees 4, Red Sox 2: Box Score | Play-by-Play
Luis Severina made his first start for the Yankees after the 2019 American League Championship series, when the Yankees improved their score 2-0 for the first time since 2018.
Stanton broke a 2-2 draw when he drove the 0-1 slider from Nick Piveta (0-1) to the front row of the left podium, driving 437 feet over Boston’s bullpen. Stanton and Reese became the first players in Yankee history to have Homer together in both of the first two games of the season.
Stanton’s streak of six games in a row with home runs against the Red Sox includes a drive in last year’s AL Wild Card game, defeating the Yankees 6-2.
Those players competed in five games in a row against Boston: Mickey Mentle (1954), Ken Griffi Jr. (1996-97) and Jim Tom (1997).
After opening as a designated striker on Friday, Stanton played on the right field. Last year, Stanton scored nine of 35 homers in 16 games as an outfielder.
Alex Verduga scored Homer twice in the second inning with 31 steps to Severin, who returned late last season from Tommy John’s operation. The 28-year-old right-hander, who won 19 games in 2018, conceded five strikes in three extra innings, identified five and missed none. He threw 65 throws, including 35 fastballs with four seams that averaged 97.8 miles per hour.
Six relevers followed Severin out of the pass without hitting. Lucas Lutge (1-0) made the sixth, and Aroldis Chapman bypassed the mistake in throwing a new short stop by Isaiah Kiner-Falef for his first save.
Boston dropped to 0-2 for the second season in a row.
The Pivetta allowed four runs and four strokes in 5 ⅔ innings.
Enrique Hernandez in defense, which was overshadowed by the defeat of “Boston”, hooked the central fence of the field to deprive Aaron Judge of an additional blow to the base. The referee’s drive would be a home run on 21 football fields.
Alonso’s power in the Grand Slam tournament gives a record 3-0
WASHINGTON – Pete Alonso spun his bat when his first-ever Grand Slam tournament broke a zero draw in the fifth inning, then put his index fingers to his mouth as if to silence the crowd after celebrating with teammates near the plate, pushing the Mets to 5- victory over the Washington Nationals on Saturday night.
Chris Basitt has made six innings in his debut at the Mets, and New York has won its third win in a row to open Buck Shawolter as manager. The Mets beat Washington 17-4 and will go on to the series on Sunday.
Mets 5, national 0: Box Score | Play after the game
About 48 hours after his lower lip was bloodied due to a step – part of a series of Mets hit in the first three games of the season that led to a break in clearing the bench – Alonso sent 91 mph fastball from Joan Addon (0-1) through the fence on the left by a score of 2-1.
The Mets have loaded the base with one and a couple of walks against Adon, whose first major league appearance came on the last day of the 2021 regular season. This brought up Alonso, who in 2019 became the rookie of the year in NL, and a group of Mets fans near the guest dugout sang the chorus of his full name.
He took the ball off his face in the ninth inning on the first day after his teammate James McCann had been hit twice before. The Mets ’short-stop Francisco Lindar then received a beating in Game 2, leading to a confrontation on the field between the two clubs and two throws. The fifth strike in a row came on Saturday in the third inning, when Starling Marte was struck by Adon’s crooked ball – but this time Showalter remained in his dugout, watching with his arms crossed.
The day after former national team starter Max Scherzer won his first start in New York, Basitt – also a star star – did the same.
Bassit (1-0), who arrived with Oakland Athletics in trade last month, dropped just three singles – only one of which left the field – in six innings. He crossed out eight and passed one.
The reconstruction of the Nationals attracted a crowd of 21,369 people.
