Alex Verdugo (28) went 3-for-5 with a home run and four RBIs against his former team as the visiting New York Yankees defeated the Boston Red Sox 8-1 on Friday.

The Yankees became the first team in the majors to reach 50 wins this year. Verdugo contributed to all three of the Yankees' multi-run innings. He hit a two-run homer in the first, added an RBI double in a two-run fifth and chipped in a run-scoring single in a three-run ninth.

Anthony Rizzo went 2-for-3 with an RBI, Jose Trevino homered and Luis Gil (9-1) pitched five innings of one-run ball for New York. Gil yielded four hits and four walks while striking out six.

The Red Sox were limited to five hits and went scoreless against four New York relievers. Enmanuel Valdez had the team's lone RBI. Boston's Brayan Bello (6-4) allowed five runs (four earned) in 4 2/3 innings. He gave up six hits and three walks and struck out five.
