The Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees had a crazy encounter on Friday night. Here’s what you might have missed from the wild rivalry game.

Anyone who tells you that Friday night’s series opener between the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees going on All-Star break was just another edition of the rivalry is lying to you. Yes, it was indeed a heated fight in the Bronx, but it was one too wonderfully weird and really wild competitionespecially from the end of the ninth in extra innings.

In the end, it was Boston who clinched the win despite spitting out the lead in front of the extras in the last half inning and also flirting with disaster in the bottom of the 10th inning. New York still has a clear lead in the AL East. However, it was the Red Sox that were swept in Tampa and needed a win, surviving mistakes that have recently cost them victories to get it.

So what did we see, what did we learn, and what might you have missed from another classic between the Red Sox and the Yankees? We have three key takeaways from Friday night’s thriller for you.

Red Sox: Pay Xander Bogaerts and Rafael Devers as always

It’s getting more confusing by the day that the Red Sox haven’t already endorsed the Brinks truck for Xander Bogaerts and Rafael Devers.

In the latter case, he remains one of baseball’s top hitters this season and continued his plight to torment New York on Friday. In the first place he saw against Jordan Montgomery, he laced it deep right to center and over the fence to give Boston an early 2-0 lead. That was his only hit of the night, but he was also put on base on purpose late for showing respect to him on court. And he even flashed the leather a bit during the night.

As for Bogaerts, not only was it another bumpy two-hit night for the superstar shortstop, but he also showed his immense value with some elite defensive work and, of course, his baserunning savvy as a ghost runner at the top of the 11th inning , home plate on a ball in the dirt that bounced forward and eventually gave the Red Sox the lead.

Any day that goes by without these two stars getting paid is a crime by the Boston front office.
