While Stanton's wood produced two more strikeouts, he wasn't the only reason the Yankees were embarrassed 14-1 by the Red Sox in front of 32,357 chilled customers who experienced a first-pitch temperature of 38 degrees.

They improved to 9-1 after beating down on the Yankees 14-1 at Fenway Park the night before.

For the other team in NY, it was an 8-6 win over the lowly Miami Marlins, but with the victory the Mets moved to 9-1 for the season - the best start in franchise history. He is 15-11 with a 4.53 ERA in 38 career appearances (37 starts) against NY.

Stanton is now up to 22 strikeouts in his first 11 games (52 plate appearances) as a Yankee.

Washington Nationals' Stephen Strasburg tossed eight innings of three-hit, shut-out ball in a 4-1 win over the Atlanta Braves. In addition, he singled, walked and reached on an error while bunting. The battle between the two teams this season will be entertaining, no doubt. His sixth inning grand slam was the first by a hitter for the Red Sox against NY since September of 2013.

The Mets (9-1) have won seven games in a row and lead the National League East. They should continue their hot start. He allowed one run off eight hits while striking out eight. It was his 25th career homer in the ninth inning or later.

Andrew Benintendi, Hanley Ramirez and J.D. Martinez combined for seven RBIs behind Mookie Betts. Betts went 4 for 4, scoring five runs and driving in four. Roberto Osuna pitched a ideal ninth for his fifth save of the season, the 100th save of his career, becoming the youngest pitcher ever to reach the milestone.

Phillies second baseman Scott Kingery hit Philadelphia's third grand slam in its last four games in a 6-1 win over the Reds. He entered Tuesday's game 4-for-39 (.103) with 21 strikeouts and one home run over the nine games since Opening Day. But it took until his third time through the lineup to get anything going off Red Sox starter Chris Sale, when he squeaked a base hit into center field in the sixth inning.

Mariners 8, Royals 3: Jean Segura had three hits and two RBIs, and Mitch Haniger and Kyle Seager also drove in two runs apiece to support Felix Hernandez in Seattle's victory over host Kansas City. It's the best start in franchise history.

Padres 5, Rockies 2: Hunter Renfroe broke a tie with a three-run, two-out homer in the seventh, and rookie left-hander Joey Lucchesi didn't allow an earned run over six-plus innings to earn his first major league win as visiting San Diego defeated Colorado. "That's the inning that you don't want to give up a run".

Cubs utility man Javy Baez went 2 for 4 with two home runs in an 8-5 loss to the Pirates.

The Yankees brought in Chasen Shreve with two outs in the inning and runners at first and second.
