Yankees beat Red Sox 3-2 in doubleheader opener

BOSTON (AP) - Gleyber Torres had a go-ahead, two-run single in the sixth inning and started a game-ending double play with the bases loaded, helping the New York Yankees beat the Boston Red Sox 3-2 on Tuesday in a day-night doubleheader opener.

DJ LeMahieu added an RBI double as New York earned just its second victory in 10 meetings with Boston this season and got back to .500 at 72-72. The Red Sox, just one game ahead of the Yankees at 73-71, have lost five of their last six as their hopes fade of securing the AL's final wild-card berth.

The doubleheader was scheduled after the series opener was rained out Monday. The change contributed to an announced paid attendance of only 30,029, the lowest at Fenway Park for a Red Sox-Yankees game since May 27, 1999, not including pandemic-restricted crowds in 2020 and 2021.

Jhony Brito (7-7) pitched three-hit ball over 2 1/3 scoreless innings. Clay Holmes walked the bases loaded with one out in the ninth before finishing for his 19th save. Boston starter Nick Pivetta (9-9) struck out 10 in 5 1/3 innings.

CHICAGO (AP) - Dylan Cease won consecutive decisions for just the third time this season, and Chicago beat Kansas City in a doubleheader opener to end a strange run of losses when the White Sox struck out 14 or more.

Cease (7-7) allowed one run and four hits in 5 1/3 innings with eight strikeouts and one walk. Bryan Shaw struck out three over 1 2/3 innings, Lane Ramsey one and Gregory Santos two in a perfect ninth for his fifth save in nine chances. Chicago had been 0-11 this year when its pitchers struck out 14 or more.

Kansas City lost its fifth straight game and dropped to a major league-worst 44-101. The Royals have lost at least 100 games for the third time in six seasons and with 17 games left could break the team record of 106, set in 2005.

Brady Singer (8-11) was the loser.
