Red Sox thump Yankees in record-setting night

It took almost four months on the baseball calendar for the Yankees to finally play a baseball game at Fenway Park this season. The Red Sox had been waiting for it, and when the moment got here, they out-savaged their rivals with a 19-3 thumping in the opener of a four-game series on Thursday night.

Instead of playing the role of gracious hosts, the defending World Series champions jumped all over the Yankees from the outset, belting Masahiro Tanaka around for seven runs in the first, and then five more in the fourth, at which point Yankees manager Aaron Boone finally had no choice but to pull him and go to his recently overworked bullpen.
