Major League Baseball plays its first games in the UK

On a warm summer weekend at London Stadium, one of the greatest rivalries in sports - the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox - faced off in an action packed two-game series. The Yankees left London winning both games though the real winner were the UK fans who witnessed a combined total of 50 runs over the course of the two games - the most scored over two-games in the history of the storied rivalry.
