Yankees ace Luis Severino rocked in loss to Red Sox

Yankees ace Luis Severino rocked in loss to Red Sox

Mookie Betts helped out, going four for four with a grand slam.

Facing Sale for the first time, Major League Baseball strikeout leader Giancarlo Stanton added a pair of Ks to his total (22).

Texas Rangers pitcher Martin Perez gave up nine hits and eight runs in just three innings of work in an 11-1 loss to the Los Angeles Angels. At 1-1, Benintendi laced a two-run triple into the right-field corner that gave the Red Sox a 3-0 cushion. The battle between the two teams this season will be entertaining, no doubt. His sixth inning grand slam was the first by a hitter for the Red Sox against NY since September of 2013.

The Mets (9-1) have won seven games in a row and lead the National League East. Boone said that will put him down for the next three days and then they will "hopefully by Friday start ramping him back up again". Teammate Wilmer Flores pulled an RBI double and a solo homer.

It's certainly early - there are 152 games to be played - but the Red Sox' impressive streak is still hard to ignore.

The Blue Jays beat the Baltimore Orioles 2-1 on a Curtis Granderson go-ahead home run in the ninth inning.

Granderson broke a 1-1 tie by lifting a 1-2 fastball from Darren O'Day (0-1) over the scoreboard in right field.

Granderson's first homer as a Blue Jay occurred after Sanchez (1-1) lost his no-hit bid on the first pitch of the eighth by allowing a double to Tim Beckham. All four runs Shreve gave up were unearned. Roberto Osuna pitched a ideal ninth for his fifth save of the season, the 100th save of his career, becoming the youngest pitcher ever to reach the milestone.

Of Boston's nine runs in the sixth, six were unearned.

Gary Sanchez's miserable start to the season continued with a 0-for-4 night that extended his slump to 1-for-33.

A year ago the Yankees were 4-1 in games started by Sale (1-0), but there would be none of that Tuesday night when he allowed a run, eight hits and struck out eight in six innings.

Mariners 8, Royals 3: Jean Segura had three hits and two RBIs, and Mitch Haniger and Kyle Seager also drove in two runs apiece to support Felix Hernandez in Seattle's victory over host Kansas City.

After giving up a run in the first inning when he needed 22 pitches to record three outs and leave the bases loaded, Severino gave up a leadoff single to Christian Vazquez and a one-out single to Betts in the second. Stanton will not be slashing.196/.288/.457 forever, and Judge is off to a very good start.

Cardinals 5, Brewers 3 (11 innings): Matt Carpenter cracked a two-run homer in the bottom of the 11th inning as St. Louis outlasted visiting Milwaukee. In the second he singled.

When Stanton whiffed in the opening inning there was one out, a runner on first and no score.
