Aaron Judge gave Red Sox fans an unwanted gift on his own birthday.

When the Yankees come to Fenway Park, the games rarely need any additional hype or intrigue.

The New York Mets pushed back Noah Syndergaard's turn in the rotation by a day, and Robert Gsellman started Wednesday night against the Atlanta Braves in his place.

Severino started for the Yankees and was absolutely dazzling, going seven innings, giving up no runs on three hits while striking out six. He struck out nine. It was the first time since last June that he walked more than two batters in a start. Will Chris Sale continue his dominance of the Yankees?

It was originally called a foul ball, but the Yankees challenged the play and won.

"It's a great matchup", Yankees manager Joe Girardi said.

The Yankees won eight straight games from April 9 to 17 and arrive in Boston having scored 5.1 runs per game this season, tops in the American League, and having allowed just 3.4 runs per game, second only to the Royals in all of baseball. Dellin Betances pitched a scoreless eighth, and Aroldis Chapman gave up a run in the ninth. Chapman walked Andrew Benintendi to start the inning.

The two leaders also discussed the dispute over the Canadian dairy industry that Trump has recently highlighted. Some members of the Canadian government suspect this is all a negotiating ploy in the runup to NAFTA talks.

Betting line: The Red Sox opened as -140 favorites (wager $140 to win $100); the total is at 8.5 runs, according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.

He had homered into the Yankees' bullpen an inning earlier.

Tuesday's game between the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees has been postponed because of rain. "Just a little sore", Pedroia told WEEI.com. Promising rookie first baseman Greg Bird is 6-for-51 with one home run, and ace Masahiro Tanaka has completed seven innings only once in four starts.

Sale is 4-1 with a sparkling 1.17 ERA over 10 career appearances against the Bronx Bombers.

Garcia snapped a 2-2 tie in the sixth inning with a two-run homer after the Royals tied the game in the top half of the inning. ". The walks come back to hurt you so got to limit that".

Chris Carter (2-for-13) also has a solo homer against Sale, while Aaron Hicks is 4-for-12 (.333) against him. They are 2-3 in their last five games after dropping two of three in an interleague road series against the Pittsburgh Pirates last weekend, but they may have been caught looking ahead a bit to this trip to Boston.

Still, Red Sox pitchers buzzed Machado repeatedly on Sunday - first Eduardo Rodriguez, throwing three tight pitches at the knees, and then reliever Matt Barnes, throwing one behind Machado's head.
