ONE BIG TAKEAWAY
The Red Sox and Yankees competed in a Home Run Derby professional baseball game Tuesday night.

The two teams combined for six home runs, scoring eight of the game’s 11 runs by way of the long ball.

Triston Casas got things rolling with a two-run blast in the second inning before Marwin González tied things up with a two-run homer of his own in the third. Then it was Reese McGuire, who hit his first home run of the season and as a member of the Red Sox — scorching a Gerrit Cole fastball around the Pesky Pole. Three innings later, Aaron Judge did his thing and tied it back up 3-3 in the sixth inning. One inning after that, Xander Bogaerts got in on the action, sneaking a solo shot of his own down the right-field line. That Red Sox lead wouldn’t last either, as Judge pulled double duty and belted a second home run onto Lansdowne Street, tying the game at four.

Things stayed knotted at four until the 10th inning, when Yankees second baseman Gleyber Torres belted a three-run double off Red Sox reliever Jeurys Familia — who couldn’t seem to buy a strike in the inning. Wandy Peralta did his best to give the game back to Boston in the bottom half of the inning, but Rafael Devers struck out with a man at second to give New York the win.

STARS OF THE GAME
— Casas had his best game as a professional Tuesday. The 22-year old finished 1-for-3 from the plate with the home run, two RBIs, a walk and a stolen base.

— Judge continued to climb toward the American League home run record, notching his 56th and 57th homers on the season. He finished 3-for-4 from the plate with a pair of RBIs on the home runs and an intentional walk in extras.

— McGuire finished 2-for-3 from the plate on the night of his first Red Sox home run. He added a single to his tally, caught Judge trying to steal a bag in the third inning and was hit by a pitch in extras.

WAGER WATCH
Casas’ first-Fenway Park homer paid out big for those who had some foresight. Entering Tuesday’s matchup with New York, DraftKings Sportsbook set the odds of a Casas home run at +600. A $100 bet on the 22-year-old first baseman would have paid out $700 total. The sportsbook even got some free advertising.
