If the Yankees were to have scripted their first game of the season at Fenway, they very well might have put together a game in which Luis Severino, Aaron Judge and Greg Bird all starred. Severino threw seven scoreless. Judge hit a two-run homer and made a great catch. Bird had an RBI single. Meanwhile, Dellin Betances and Aroldis Chapman combined to do enough to preserve a 3-1 win over Boston.

Yankees 3, Red Sox 1: Welcome to the rivalry, Aaron Judge. In his first game ever at Fenway Park, the Yankees' rookie slugger clocked a homer against reigning Cy Young winner Rick Porcello and dove into the stands to catch a foul ball. Red Sox muster only three hits against Pedro Martinez protege Luis Severino and lose for fourth time in six games.

The lessons of Pedro Martinez continue to payoff for the Yankees Luis Severino. Severino, who worked with the former Red Sox great this winter in the Dominican, threw seven scoreless innings, allowing six hits, striking out six and walking two. He left with the Yankees up, 3-0, in the eighth.

Before the game today the book Outliers came up with Joe Maddon in regards to birthdays, which led him to tell reporters what he likes to do during games; "I watch the scoreboard all the time for birthdays. I try to remember where I was on that date. I play that game with all the birthdays."

In the third inning at Fenway, Aaron Judge just plowed into the second row of the seats along the right field line, make an outstanding catch. The 6-foot-7, 282 pound Judge was not hurt. As for the seats, they appear to be day-to-day.

Aaron Judge, in his first at-bat at Fenway, hits an opposite field homer. It was his 7th of year.

From the file of things you didn't expect to see in 2017: The Giants have purchased the contract of Mike Morse, who had just eight PAs in 2016 and didn't hit much in 2015 AND he's a lousy fielder. But the Giants are desperately seeking outfielders and Morse will be their 10th one already in April. Chances are we'll soon see No. 11.

Joe Maddon had a thought regarding former Cub Chris Coghlan's acrobatic slide at home plate last night: "That's otherworldly right there. That's something you see Bo Jackson or Dick Fosbury (do). That also, I think, is a residual of the blocking home plate rule. He could have run him over but internally probably felt like he couldn't, instead putting himself at risk by landing on his head. I want to make a point of that also." Maddon is not a fan of the rule.

The White Sox finished off a three-game sweep of the struggling Royals with a 5-2 win at Guaranteed Rate Field on Tuesday afternoon. Jose Quintana struck out 10 over six innings, including a career-best seven during his first three frames. Red-hot Avisail Garica continued his torrid start with his fourth homer. Chicago now heads to Detroit for a weekend series. Depending on the Detroit-Seattle game later, the teams could enter the series deadlocked for first atop the AL Central. Meanwhile, the Royals have dropped seven straight and have scored two or fewer runs in nine of their last 10 games.

Reason for Dustin Pedroia sitting out tonight is two-fold: Woke up sore after working out yesterday and wet grounds, according to Red Sox manager John Farrell.
