Yankees rookie Aaron Judge made his Fenway Park debut a rather memorable one.

The New York right fielder homered and made a terrific defensive play as the Yankees beat Rick Porcello and the Red Sox 3-1 on a foggy Wednesday night in Boston.

The Yankees scored twice in the top of the second inning. Starlin Castro reached on a Xander Bogaerts throwing error to start the inning and Judge followed with his seventh home run of the year, an opposite blast to right field.

Judge figured in the third New York run in the sixth, scoring on an RBI single by Greg Bird.

The lone Boston run came in the bottom of the ninth inning when Andrew Benintendi scored on a ground out by Chris Young.

Porcello (pictured) took the loss, falling to 1-3. He allowed two earned runs over 6.2 innings on five hits and four walks. He struck out nine.

Yankees starter Luis Severino shut out the Red Sox for seven innings on just three hits.

Mookie Betts had two hits in the Boston loss.
