The New York Yankees (or, the Highlanders) weren’t caught up in the nostalgia as Fenway Park celebrated 100 years on Friday, beating the Red Sox 6-2 on Friday afternoon.

Each team wore nameless and numberless throwback uniforms – Boston donning all white hats, shirts and pants with red lettering, and New York, all grey jersey with the interlaced NY logo on the left chest, along with a grey hat and dark brim.

Alex Rodriguez hit one of New York’s five solo-home runs on the day, A-Rod second of the season and 631st of his career, surpassing Ken Griffey Jr. for 5th on the all-time list. Eric Chavez had a pair of jacks and Nick Swisher and Russell Martin each had one.

Ivan Nova (3-0) continued his streak, with six innings of two-run ball, winning is 15th straight decision.

Clay Buchholz fell to 1-1, allowing five earned runs on nine hits over six innings.

The first game a Fenway Park, on April 20, 1912, saw the Boston Red Sox beat the New York Highlanders 7-6.

Freddy Garcia (0-1) faces Felix Doubront (0-0) on Saturday at 4:05.
