The New York Yankees extended their winning streak in MLB after defeating American League rivals the Boston Red Sox 5-2.
Aaron Judge homered for a career-high fourth consecutive game as the Yankees stayed hot with their fifth straight victory on Saturday.
All-Star slugger Judge hit a 455-foot home run to give the Yankees the lead in the first tinning before Gio Urshela smashed his first career grand slam to make it 5-0 in the second.
Nick Nelson pitched three hitless innings in his MLB debut for the high-flying Yankees.
The Yankees, who improved to 6-1 for the season, have made their best start to a campaign since 2003.
Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Dodgers crushed the Arizona Diamondbacks 11-2.
The Dodgers hit four home runs, including Chris Taylor's three-run homer, to ease past the Diamondbacks in Phoenix.
White Sox pair star
Eloy Jimenez and Luis Robert had four hits and a home run apiece in the Chicago White Sox's 11-5 victory against the Kansas City Royals. Per STATS, they are just the second duo of players aged 23 or younger to do that in the modern era, joining Atlanta Braves pair Chipper Jones and Ryan Klesko in 1995.
Tyler Chatwood matched a career high with 11 strikeouts as the Chicago Cubs edged the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-3.
A pair of Miguel Sano home runs and Kenta Maeda's six scoreless innings helped the Minnesota Twins blank the Cleveland Indians 3-0.
Carrasco endures tough outing
In Cleveland's loss to Minnesota, Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco gave up six hits in six innings, while going for three solo homers.
Arenado with the catch!
Colorado Rockies star Nolan Arenado showed why he is a five-time All-Star and seven-time Gold Glove winner with this catch against the San Diego Padres. The Rockies won 6-1 to improve their season record to 5-2.
