Betts hits slam Red Sox rout Yanks 14-1 for 9th win in row

"You've got to be aggressive with a guy like that".

As the Red Sox and Yankees renewed baseball's best rivalry, Betts put on a performance of a lifetime. Pomeranz wants one more start to "tune in his mechanics", Cora said, and will make it at Double-A Portland on Friday.

On a rough night for his teammates, that approach paid off for the Yankees slugger, who had struggled mightily versus Sale to that point in his career. He surrendered a mammoth home run to Aaron Judge in the fifth, the ball landing well up into the center field bleachers but - so what - it still just counted as one run. After going down with two swing-and-miss strikeouts in his first two at-bats against Red Sox lefty Chris Sale, he rapped a hard single through the right side of the infield and later doubled.

Boone said before the game that it was too early to consider moving Stanton from the No. 3 spot in the batting order.

The Yankees were routed by the Boston Red Sox, 14-1, in the opener of a three-game series on Tuesday, April 10, 2018, at Fenway Park.

Per Forbes' Mike Ozanian, the Yankees lead all Major League Baseball teams with a $4 billion valuation. By the end of last week, he had struck out 20 times on the season, drawing the early ire of the Bronx's bleacher creatures.

Judge's bugaboo had been more of the Green Monster variety.

Now, 14 runs is pretty good and especially good on a night like Tuesday.

In his first two at-bats, Sale threw seven pitches, all fastballs, all for strikes.

In the third inning, on a double-play opportunity, Austin slid aggressively into and beyond second base, appearing to clip Holt with the bottom of his cleats.

The 1-2-3 hitters for Boston - Betts, Andrew Benintendi and Ramirez ended the game on Tuesday 8-for-9, four base on balls, eight runs and nine runs batted in. Ramirez's homer, his second of the season, left the bat at 117.5 miles per hour - the hardest ball hit by a Red Sox batter since Statcast began tracking exit velocity in 2015.

He said the run support helped him settle in. "I think my body is normally really good at that", he said. Stanton finished the game 2-for-4, recording his third multihit game of the season.

Selected in the fourth round of the 2013 amateur draft, LJ Mazzilli hit.259 with four homers and 36 RBIs a year ago in 94 games for Double-A Binghamton and.217 with one homer and four RBIs in 16 games for Triple-A Las Vegas.
