Aaron Judge powers Yankees past Red Sox with late home run

Aaron Judge powers Yankees past Red Sox with late home run

Masahiro Tanaka and the New York Yankees go for the 17th win in 18 games when they host the rival Red Sox in a matchup of teams with 25-10 records, tied for the best in baseball.

The Yankees took an early 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first when Aaron Judge hit a groundball up the middle to score Brett Gardner. Aaron Boone called him a. "He just has a way of competing in the biggest spots". But Chasen Shreve and Jonathan Holder combined to pitch out of trouble in the seventh, escaping a second-and-third, one-out jam without damage.Video: BOS@NYY: Ramirez tattoos a huge 2-run homer to leftNeil Walker doubled to open the NY eighth against Matt Barnes, advancing on a groundout before a walk to Gleyber Torres prompted Kimbrel's entry.

Kimbrel (1-2) entered with two on and one out to face Gardner seeking the first five-out save of his career. He's Laurence Leavy, a South Florida-based attorney who's clearly built a lot of wealth, as he's constantly able to travel the country and sit behind the plate at big-time games. He saw a 3-0 breaking ball. Rodriguez gave up just four hits and walked two, but three of the hits - two mammoth shots by Joey Gallo, and a wall-scraper by Delino DeShields Jr. - left the yard, inflating his run total.

Tanaka (4-2, 4.39 ERA) last pitched Thursday afternoon when he allowed three runs and five hits in six-plus innings during a no-decision in New York's 6-5 victory at Houston.

The Yankees - with yet another comeback win - have come all the way back to take over sole possession of first place. The Yankees are on a 35-8 tear in the Bronx since September 2, including the postseason, and at 16-5 have the best home record in the majors this year.

As soon as Joe Kelly emerged from the bullpen, fired-up fans at Yankee Stadium let him have it. Million dollars starter did you say yes yes yes who's who's been diagnosed of minor Carpal Tunnel Syndrome how did you get it all possibly four night. It's so much fun to be a part of these games, honestly. Neil Walker added a double while Miguel Andujar and Gleyber Torres each chipped in base hits as well. Boone predicted before the game that a breakout was imminent, citing internal metrics and an appreciation for Gardner's steady approach. Nobody warned us of the effects it could have on multi-millionaire pitchers who need their hands to throw a baseball more than they need them to mash buttons on a video game controller.




The cause of the carpal tunnel hasn't been determined but the prevailing conspiracy theory in Red Sox Nation is that it was brought on by Price's obsession with the video game Fortnite.

Did you know that Marlins Man is also an attorney?

Cora said the team was encouraged by the diagnosis, which he called a "best-case scenario".

The rally saved Chad Green from the loss. Giancarlo Stanton continued to pound Boston pitching, improving to 10-for-19 with two homers and seven RBIs in five games this year.

Since then, Price has made four more starts, going 1-3 and serving up 20 runs (17 earned) in 22 innings. NY has covered the spread five times in its last seven games and the under has hit in four of those seven. It was the first time Boston and NY met with the majors' two best records since 2002, per the Elias Sports Bureau.

Red Sox lefty David Price has been sent back to Boston for medical tests after experiencing a tingling sensation in his pitching hand again. "But yeah, got to execute the one to Walker a little bit better".
