AP Baseball Writer

NEW YORK (AP) — Josh Donaldson capped his Yankees debut with an RBI single in the 11th inning, lifting New York over the Boston Red Sox 6-5 for its first walk-off win on opening day since Yogi Berra crossed the plate in 1957. Trailing 3-0 before ace Gerrit Cole got a single out, the Yankees rallied against their longtime rival. Xander Bogaerts put the Red Sox ahead 5-4 in the 10th with an RBI single against winner Michael King. Pinch-hitter Gleyber Torres tied it in the bottom half with a sacrifice fly off Ryan Brasier.
