NEW YORK (AP) — Carlos Beltran hit a two-run homer, Ivan Nova rebounded from a rough outing and the New York Yankees beat Boston 3-2 Sunday night with the aid of another disputed replay ruling that led to the ejection of Red Sox manager John Farrell.

Beltran had three hits and was pressed into his first career appearance at first base for the banged-up Yankees. Ichiro Suzuki robbed David Ortiz of extra bases with a spectacular catch in the eighth inning to help New York take three of four in the first series of the season between the longtime rivals.

Mike Napoli homered and Felix Doubront (1-2) went 6 2-3 innings for the Red Sox, who scratched star second baseman Dustin Pedroia before the game due to a sore left wrist.

Mark Udall, D-Colo., meet on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, Feb. 6, 2014, after their bet on last Sunday's NFL Super Bowl football game between the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos. Seattle won and the senators from Washington will receive Colorado-raised bison from Tony’s market, peaches from Palisade, Colo., and a gift certificate to Elway's, a Colorado-based steakhouse and other Colorado produced items.

Elected officials, businesses, museums; it seems like almost everyone wants to wager on the Super Bowl.
