NEW YORK (AP) Luis Severino opened with a 97 mph fastball on the low, inside corner of the plate, and Alcides Escobar drove it deep to center field.
Jacoby Ellsbury sprinted 107 feet, raised his glove above his head and snagged the ball as his head jarred into the wall. He landed on his back, toppled head over heels to the warning track but held on.
"It set the tone of the game. Escobar is standing on third or it's 1-0 if it comes out of his glove," said left fielder Brett Gardner, who ran over to comfort his New York Yankees teammate.
