LONDON (AP) — Aaron Hicks has hit Major League Baseball's first home run on European soil.
Hicks drove a changeup from Rick Porcello 386 feet over the Boston bullpen in right field. The two-run drive on Porcello's 33rd pitch gave the Yankees a 6-0 lead just one out into the game. Porcello was then relieved by Colten Brewer, marking the shortest outing of his 324 career starts.
New York extended its big league record of consecutive games with a home run to 30.
Voit followed with an RBI double, Didi Gregorius hit a two-run double and Edwin Encarnación doubled in another run. Hicks followed with his sixth home run.
