NEW YORK, NEW YORK - APRIL 08: Josh Donaldson #28 of the New York Yankees celebrates after hitting a walk-off RBI single in the eleventh inning against the Boston Red Sox at Yankee Stadium on April 08, 2022 in New York City.

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. Donaldson, acquired from Minnesota last month, grounded a single up the middle against rookie Kutter Crawford leading off the 11th.

Isiah Kiner-Falefa, who started the inning as the automatic runner at second base, scored in his Yankees debut.
