NEW YORK (AP) — In one of the classic games of their long and illustrious rivalry, the Boston Red Sox finally outlasted the New York Yankees 6-5 in 19 innings early Saturday when the game-ending double play was turned at 2:13 a.m.

In the first meeting of the year between the teams, Boston at last went ahead for good on a sacrifice fly by Mookie Betts. Xander Bogaerts scored the decisive run after reaching on his fourth hit in extra innings.

Chase Headley and Mark Teixeira hit tying home runs for the Yankees in an early-season epic interrupted by a power outage for 16 minutes in the 12th. That’s why the official time of game was 6 hours, 49 minutes — even though it took more than 7 hours to complete.

The teams get little chance to rest, too. They’re back at it for the middle game of the series Saturday at 1:05 p.m.
