Eric Chavez hit two of the Yankees’ five solo home runs as New York won 6-2 against the Red Sox in a game marking the 100th birthday of Boston’s Fenway Park.
Today’s contest at the oldest stadium in Major League Baseball came on the centennial of the first official game at the park. That game 100 years ago was between the Red Sox and the New York Highlanders, since renamed the Yankees.
Alex Rodriguez, Nick Swisher and Russell Martin also hit home runs for the Yankees (8-6). David Ortiz homered for Boston (4-9).
Ivan Nova (3-0) got the win, allowing two runs on seven hits in six innings. Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz (1-1), who allowed all five homers, took the loss.
