Josh Donaldson, whom the Yankees traded for in the offseason, was the hero in the first game of the season with an 11th-inning, walk-off single. The Yankees have already demonstrated the power in their offense as both Giancarlo Stanton and Anthony Rizzo have two home runs this season.
In the final game of the series, the Red Sox won 4-3, with Bobby Dalbec's sixth-inning home run providing the winning run. Boston closer Jake Diekman struck Aaron Judge, Stanton and Joey Gallo to end the game.
For Sunday's Red Sox-Yankees game, ESPN debuted the KayRod Cast, an alternate broadcast featuring Michael Kay and Alex Rodriguez.
Here are the best moments from the KayRod Cast:
A-Rod and Big Papi's new rivalry
Rodriguez and David Ortiz were on opposite sides of the rivalry. Ortiz was in Boston from 2003 to 2016, overlapping with Rodriguez's time in New York, which began in 2004. They faced each other in two American League Championship Series and combined to win four World Series.
They are now "teammates" as part of Fox Sports' playoff coverage.
