MLB News: Yankees Win Against Red Sox in Season Opener
The New York Yankees kicked off their season with a 5-3 victory against the Boston Red Sox on Thursday. The game was played in front of a limited-capacity crowd due to COVID-19 restrictions, but fans were still excited to see their favorite teams take the field.
Aaron Judge led the way for the Yankees, hitting a two-run homer in the third inning. Giancarlo Stanton and DJ LeMahieu also contributed with solo home runs. On the Red Sox side, Rafael Devers hit a two-run homer in the ninth inning, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the Yankees’ lead.
The win is a promising start for the Yankees, who missed the playoffs last year for the first time since 2016. They’ll look to keep the momentum going in their next game against the Toronto Blue Jays.
In other MLB news, the Los Angeles Dodgers have signed reigning National League Cy Young Award winner Trevor Bauer to a three-year, $102 million contract. Bauer had an impressive 2020 season with the Cincinnati Reds, posting a 1.73 ERA and 100 strikeouts in just 73 innings pitched.
The signing solidifies the Dodgers’ status as one of the top teams in the league. With Bauer joining a pitching staff that already includes Clayton Kershaw and Walker Buehler, the Dodgers will be a force to be reckoned with in the upcoming season.
MLB fans can look forward to an exciting year of baseball, with many talented teams and players vying for the championship. Stay tuned for more MLB news and updates throughout the season!
