From there, Zack Weiss and Brandon Walter held strong over the next four innings, allowing just three hits.

After the Red Sox tied the game in the seventh, the Yankees got another back against the Boston bullpen on an RBI double from DJ LeMahieu off of Mauricio Llovera to put the Yankees up 6-5.

Devers entered Thursday’s contest at +400 to hit a home run, per FanDuel Sportsbook. With his solo shot in the third inning, a $100 wager placed on Devers would’ve netted a $500 total payout.

The Red Sox head north for a three-game series in Toronto against the Blue Jays beginning on Friday. First pitch from Rogers Centre is set for 7:07 p.m. ET. You can watch the game, plus an hour of pregame coverage, on NESN.
