The New York Yankees (37-28) offense couldn’t produce enough offense in a 3-2 series-opening loss to the Boston Red Sox (32-32) at Yankee Stadium on Friday night.
Josh Donaldson crushed his fifth home run of the season, and Isiah Kiner-Falefa scored on a wild pitch, but it wasn’t enough.
Gerrit Cole tossed six innings of two-run ball while striking out six. Albert Abreu allowed a home run in relief, but Nick Ramirez and Jimmy Cordero kept the game within striking distance.
The Yankees will try to bounce back on Saturday with Domingo German on the hill. The first pitch is set for 7:35 p.m.
