Donaldson gave the Yankees their first win against the Red Sox in 11 overs

NEW YORK (AP) – Josh Donaldson caps his Yankees debut with an RBI singles in the 11th inning, taking New York to the Boston Red Sox 6-5 on Friday for the first walk-off victory on the first day after Yogi Berar’s goal in 1957.

The Yankees rallied against their longtime rivals, trailing 3-0 before Gerrit Cole’s single was out.

Xander Bogaerts winner Michael King – his third hit in the Bogaerts game – gave the Red Sox a 5-4 lead in the 10th match with an RBI single. Pinch-hitter Gleber Torres Ryan tied it to the bottom half with a sacrificial fly over Brescia’s ball.

Donaldson, acquired from Minnesota last month, made a single up in the middle against 11th-ranked Rookie Cutter Crawford. Asia Kinar-Falefa, who started the innings as an automatic runner in the second base, scored his Yankees debut.

It was the Yankees’ sixth overall walk-off win on opening day. The last time the defending World Series champions started the 1957 season was when they defeated the Washington Senators 2-1 because Andre Carrey scored a single goal for Berar.

Cole was fooled on 14 pitches. He led Kike Hernandez on four pitches and allowed Devers a two-run homer on a 98.6 mph pitch that landed a second call on the right. Bogarts followed with a single and scored a double with JD Martinez, provoking a mound trip by pitching coach Matt Blake.

Cole was waiting for his first Yankees opener before the whole crowd. He was determined to retire 11 of his last 14 batsmen.

Stanton has five opening-day homers, four of which are with the Yankees. He was out on his other four at-bat.

Evoldi was not allowed to run his second home until June 4 last year.

Tigers 5, White Sox 4

Detroit (AP) – Javier Beaz was injured in his game-ending replay reversal of his Detroit debut with the winning RBI singles and the Tigers defeated the Chicago White Sox 5-4 on Friday.

With two outs and a third runner in the ninth inning, the Boys hit a drive to the right of Liam Hendrix that sent AJ Pollock back to the wall. Pollock was seen making a juggling catch, but the ball hit the wall before leaving the outfielder’s glove.

The new-born Tigers began the celebration after realizing what had happened, and the opening day crowd joined after umpire Marvin Hudson announced he would reverse the call.

Eric Hass had hit a lone homer off Hendrix (0-1) before the ninth.

Chicago’s Andrew Von hit a tiebreaking single homer near ninth-ranked Gregory Sotor (1-0).
