Avisail Garcia and Leury Garcia homered to back run-starved starter Jose Quintana and the Chicago White Sox beat the Kansas City Royals 5-2 to complete a three-game sweep.

Fans had to wait one extra day, but one of the greatest rivalries in professional sports history resumes Wednesday when the Boston Red Sox host the New York Yankees in the opener of a rain-shortened two-game set and the first of 19 renewals this season. The 6-7, 280-pound rightfielder laced a two-run homer in the second inning, banana-slicing a pitch from Rick Porcello (1-3) to rightfield.

Brantley, who played in only 11 games last season after having two operations on his left shoulder, had an RBI double in Cleveland's three-run first inning and added a two-run single in the fifth.

Hard-throwing right-hander Luis Severino delivered seven scoreless innings, and hulking slugger Aaron Judge smashed an opposite-field two-run home run through mist and a 50-degree chill against reigning Cy Young victor Rick Porcello.

Chapman, who last pitched on April 22, required 33 pitches in the ninth, and was seen grabbing his elbow, but said he isn't concerned about it.

Judge flips into the stands to track down a fly ball.

Turkey electoral board rejects request to annul referendum
Trump called Erdogan Monday to congratulate him on his victory in the referendum on expanding presidential powers in Turkey. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson would finalize the date according to the two presidents' schedules.

"It's pretty awesome", Judge said. "If he puts the barrel to it and gets it in the air, it's got a good chance to go out". After scoring just two runs in the first two games of the series, Boston salvaged Sunday by collecting 14 hits in a 6-2 win. It should come as no surprise to you this list will have no mention of 2004 or bloody socks but I do kind of love when Jason Varitek punched Alex Rodriguez.

Yankees: Girardi said SS Didi Gregorius is close to returning.

The new ace of the Red Sox rotation has been brilliant against just about every team, although no lineup in the American League has been silenced by the lanky lefty as much as the Yankees.

Boston is 4-1 SU in its last five games at home. The Mets have now lost nine of their last 10 games for the first time since September 2012. Even more interesting, they were 41-41 at Fenway and 42-42 at Yankee Stadium.

For Thursday's matchup, the Yankees will be bringing out RHP Masahiro Tanaka.
