A rare Friday without baseball? It’s a casualty of the Red Sox trip to London

A rare Friday without baseball? It’s a casualty of the Red Sox trip to London

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were appearing at the Yankees' clash with the Boston Red Sox at the London Stadium to promote the Invictus Games Foundation. For the first time since a 1989 game between the Toronto Blue Jays and Oakland Athletics, both teams scored at least six runs in the first inning and had their starters pulled.

The Red Sox did their best to catch up in the bottom of the inning, banking on a Rafael Devers RBI double, Christian Vázquez sac fly, Brock Holt RBI single, and Michael Chavis three-run homer to tie their division rivals' impressive mark. The left field and right field foul poles are just 330 feet from home plate. The home run was also a record 30th straight game in which the Yankees have homered. They also gave up a combined nine hits.

The fireworks didn't stop there for the Yankees.
