New York won the game 17-13, which was full of offense from the start. Each team scored six runs in a first inning that took nearly an hour to complete, and saw both starting pitchers pulled before recording three outs.

Yankees outfielder Aaron Hicks slugged the first home run on the European continent. Slugger Luke Voit had four hits before leaving with an injury in the fifth inning.

On the Boston side, rookie Michael Chavis hit two three-run home runs. Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts left the game with an injury in the eighth inning.
