On a cloudy and misty night at Fenway Park, the Yankees and Red Sox squared off for the first of a now two-game set. And on Aaron Judge‘s 25th birthday, he made quite the introduction to the famed rivalry, leading the offense to a 3-1 win at Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts.
The Yankees scored in the top of the second on a two-run home run by Judge. The Yankees added one more run in the sixth on a RBI single by Greg Bird.
Severino started for the Yankees and was absolutely dazzling, going seven innings, giving up no runs on three hits while striking out six. Dellin Betances pitched a scoreless eighth, and Aroldis Chapman gave up a run in the ninth.

First pitch is at 7:05 p.m. and the game will air on the YES Network.
