The Yankees were absolutely thrashed by their bitter rivals, the Boston Red Sox, in their first game of the season by a humiliating score of 14-1. Despite the fact that the Yankees entered the new season as one of the favorite teams to win the World Series but at this point, that possibility looks far away.

 

At the end of that awful first game against Boston, manager Aaron Boone spoke with the New York Post about the defeat saying that "It was a crappy night all around". The skipper also said :

I think guys are going into the game really prepared. We’ve been banged up, obviously, with the injury situation the last couple of weeks where we had some guys go down that’s created a little bit of a challenge for us, but that’s part of it. There’s nothing that’s sounding off an alarm that doesn’t make me think we’re gonna be a really good club once we can get to full strength.

 

Aaron Judge scored the Yankees' only run during the game with a solo home run, and he spoke about what does the team need to have consistent performances and how to turn things around for good, as he told to MLB.com:

It was a tough game, a tough loss.  "Nothing was really working for us. We weren't able to string a couple of hits together off Sale tonight, and that's tough. One of the best pitchers in the game, you've got to be able to manufacture some runs and put a couple on the board early. We weren't able to do that tonight, and they were able to do it against Sevy
