Red Sox 5, Yankees 0

Red Sox - 001 000 211 - 5 13  0
Yankees - 000 000 000 - 0  5  0
On Friday afternoon, the Red Sox shut out the team that many baseball experts have dubbed "unbeatable". Eight of the nine starters had at least one hit, with Ivan De Jesus Jr. collecting a single, double, and home run. Sam Travis also dinged a dong.

Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton went 1-for-6 at the top of the Yankees' lineup. Judge (as usual, against Boston) was a non-entity; he singled, but also struck out twice and hit into a double play.

Red Sox starter Brian Johnson flicked the switch and allowed only two hits and one walk over 4.2 innings, with five strikeouts. Manager Alex Cora said Johnson would begin the season in the rotation. ... Masahiro Tanaka lowered his spring ERA to 7.24. ... Boston is 18-9 this spring, while New York dropped to 15-12.
