Benintendi's walk-off seals Red Sox sweep

10 August 2018

David Price has had his struggles against the New York Yankees, especially since joining the Boston Red Sox in 2016.

I am not trying to discredit what the Boston Red Sox did this weekend because they did sweep the New York Yankees and at the moment they are the best team in baseball.

The Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees will wrap up their four-game series on ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball. But, if the Yankees lose Sunday, they'd need the Red Sox to go 24-25 in order to win the division outright.

Miguel Andujar's leadoff homer in the third was the only hit allowed by Porcello (14-4), who matched his season high for strikeouts and pitched his first complete game since July 23 previous year. The Yankees must find a way to get back to scoring runs if they are going to hold onto the top Wild Card spot in the American League.

Sparked by a two-run shot by Pearce (the first of his three homers) in the third to cut the lead to 4-2, the veteran first baseman gave the team the lead with the three-run blast the next inning. In his last two starts, he has worked 15 scoreless innings, yielding six hits while striking out 17.

Brian Cashman's Yankees are falling further and further behind the Red Sox. With a big showing against the Red Sox in Boston, the Yankees could breathe life into the race heading into the homestretch of the season. It was Kimbrel's first action since July 29.

"I'm a broken record".

Yankees: Judge is expecting to start swinging a bat "soon", with a goal of returning to the lineup in three weeks.

Red Sox: LHP Drew Pomeranz (1-5, 6.56) is slated to start the opener of a nine-game road trip Tuesday in Toronto.

"It definitely got emotional, but I think more than anything it probably fired us up and might have got us locked in", Porcello said. We acknowledge who they are right now. Tomorrow's important. But if we had won five in a row, tomorrow's really important. They are on pace for 113 wins, a total topped by only three teams in major league history. That's indicative of their record and how consistent they've been. All three of those internet TV services require credit card information and subscription fees, but they all offer seven-day free trial periods.

"It's a tough way, obviously, to end a tough weekend, but we can't let this define what's been a great season for us", Boone said after Sunday's game. "They've been good to us. There's no denying the season that they're having".

Keep in mind that he did lead the Boston Red Sox to the 2013 World Series title, but that didn't buy him enough job security to get to the 2018 season.

Didi Gregorius is 13-for-30 with a home run, Austin Romine 6-for-14 and Giancarlo Stanton 5-for-13 against Price lifetime.

With New York leading 4-1 in the ninth, Chapman loaded the bases on walks before Martinez's two-out, two-run single pulled Boston within one.

After Sandy Leon singled off Jonathan Holder (1-3) and took second on a wild pitch, the Yankeesintentionally walked Mookie Betts. "Haven't been there since 2014".

Rangers 11, Orioles 3: Rougned Odor hit a grand slam, and Joey Gallo and Robinson Chirinos also homered during a seven-run fourth inning as Texas beat visiting Baltimore. He's an athlete. This wasn't a regular thing. We came in and did what we wanted to do.
