But Jackie Bradley Jr. raced back to the triangle in center and timed his jump perfectly, reaching over the Red Sox bullpen wall to reel in the ball.

CC Sabathia allowed two hits over six innings in the opener, and Didi Gregorius hit a solo home run to give NY a 3-0 victory. While a Red Sox fan initially came up with the foul ball, he turned and handed the souvenir to a young Yankees fan.

"It's been a long, long time", manager Joe Girardi said. "Besides that, he was really good".

That's one way to stop Aaron Judge.

Betts homered over the billboard above the Green Monster, his 17th of the year, with one out in the third inning to end Boston's scoreless streak at 24 innings.

Garrett Cooper, who made his major league debut for the Yankees on Friday, doubled in the fifth for his first major league hit. "Jackie's been making plays like that for a long time".

The Argentina worldwide goalkeeper was set to be out of contract next summer, but will now stay until at least 2021. Romero said that he was delighted to have signed the new contract with the "biggest club in the world".

"I just hit it to the wrong part of the park and the wrong center fielder", Judge said. He made it 3-0 when he singled to lead off the sixth, took second on an error by second baseman Starlin Castro, third on a groundout and scored on Dustin Pedroia's second hit of the game.

In New York's victory in the opener, the Yankees got a solo homer from Gregorius, a sacrifice fly from Ji-Man Choi and an RBI single from Ronald Torreyes.

Aroldis Chapman pitched a scoreless ninth for his ninth save of the season.

In the early game, Sabathia (8-3) made his second start since a stint on the disabled list (strained left hamstring).

NOTES: New York RHP Bryan Mitchell and Boston INF/OF Brock Holt were the 26th men for Sunday's doubleheader. NY sent RHP Domingo German to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. However, the shortest home run distance to right at Fenway Park is listed as 302 feet. It was the shortest non-inside-the-park homer Statcast has tracked in the past three seasons. "If it goes unaddressed ... who's to say (you) can't instruct runners to do the same going forward", Farrell said.
