Judge, Severino lead Yankees past Red Sox

It was a highlight that he'll be able show at future birthday parties.

Tuesday's Yankees-Red Sox game was postponed due to bad weather leading the game to be rescheduled for the July series against the Yankees at Fenway Park as the first game of a day-night doubleheader on Sunday, July 16. Yet Judge seems to have a flair for the dramatic, too. "My adrenaline was pumping".

Take Wednesday night, which held significance for Judge for two reasons: 1. "That was a first". The pitch was low in the zone, but Judge's strength and patience enabled him to drop it over the wall in right field. Also, their lead lefty, Robby Scott, threw a season-high 21 pitches in the loss to NY. "So, I was there tonight trying not to rush to the plate, be calm, and with men in scoring position try and make a good pitch, get an out" as he did with a DP grounder against Hanley Ramirez.

Regardless, New York will send Luis Severino (0-0, 4.05 ERA) to the mound, and the hard-throwing righty has struck out 27 batters in 20 innings.

Chris Young's groundout plated Benintendi from third to put the Red Sox on the board.

It was the 11th win in 14 games for the Yankees after they opened the season 1-4.

The Red Sox went down 1-2-3 in four innings in this game, and the other frames weren't any more interesting.

Reigning American League Cy Young Award victor Rick Porcello (1-3) struggled with his command, walking four while allowing all three runs (two earned) on five hits in 6 2/3 innings. He did not lose consecutive starts last season.

Chapman, who last pitched on April 22, required 33 pitches in the ninth, and was seen grabbing his elbow, but said he isn't concerned about it.

"It was a fastball, middle in", Porcello said of Judge's homer. "He gave up some advice, moved me a couple of extra steps to the foul line and really helped me out there".

Fog rolled in during the middle innings after both teams didn't have batting practice on the field because of steady rain, probably causing a rare non-sellout in a game between the teams in Boston.

"My confidence right now is very good", Severino said, crediting catcher Austin Romine for much of his success in a win that pushed the Yankees to 12-7. We will find out in Game 1 of the series. Gregorius continues to recover from a strained right shoulder while playing at Class A Tampa.

Tanaka, meanwhile, trumps Sale in one category - his career strikeout-to-walk ratio of 4.94 is the highest in the modern era (since 1900). Pedroia was injured on a controversial slide by Baltimore 3B Manny Machado on Friday.

Over on the Red Sox side, they're rolling with lefty Chris Sale on Thursday.
