New York Yankees: Three things to look for in Boston

The Yankees are now four games back after sweeping four games against the New York Mets.

- Here's the kind of day Jackie Bradley Jr. had Sunday: When a reporter asked him to talk about his big hit, he needed clarification: "Which one?"

In San Diego, Yangervis Solarte hit a two-run home run off Stephen Strasburg in the first inning of the right-hander's first start in nearly a month.

"I would have said, 'No way.' But everything's worked out", he said.

NY did not feel overwhelmed by Boston the last two weekends - each series won by the Red Sox, 2-1.

Photo Gary Sanchez hit a game-tying home run in the Yankees' four-run seventh inning. It's the fourth straight win for Porcello, bringing him to 4-4 since the All-Star break.

"[Sale has] pitched really well against us", Yankees manager Joe Girardi said.

If you remember, the Yankees trolled the Red Sox with a series of clever tweets back in June after they took two out of three in convincing fashion, including this play on the Red Sox's "Win".

Porcello (8-14) allowed all three NY hits, striking out four and walking three to win his fourth straight start.

He was humming along with a 2-0 lead with one out in the fourth when his second pitch to Chase Headley sailed to the backstop.

"I guess we're pretty good at it", Moreland said. This team has nine walk off wins this year and has posted an 11-3 record in extra inning games, which is the best in the entire majors. "And I hope it continues". Moreland singled with one out and went to second on a wild pitch.

Teenagers who use e-cigarettes 'more likely to smoke tobacco'
A year later, 34-percent of the e-cigarette users had smoked tobacco compared to only 9 percent of those who had never vaped. Experts looked at survey responses from 2,836 pupils from 20 schools in England at age 13 and 14, and again a year later.

Porcello was lights out for six innings. He escaped that trouble by inducing a fly ball from Todd Frazier and striking out Tyler Austin.

Bradley's offense gave Porcello a cushion, and he helped his pitcher out in the field as well. Instead, Bradley tracked it down and made the catch without even having to leave his feet. He's batting.321 in August with 14 RBIs.

The lone Yankee run came int he 5th inning as Brett Gardner homered near the Pesky Pole. On top of these numbers, he has absolutely owned the Yankees so far this season, giving up just three runs and striking out 35 over a combined 22.2 innings.

Brandon Workman, Addison Reed and Craig Kimbrel finished the rest of the game on the mound for the Red Sox. Tim Frost and his friend Michael Douglas, who attended an event for season-ticket holders Thursday night at Fenway, said they were in favor of the name change. In two starts against the Red Sox he has allowed zero runs in 14 innings and struck out eight.

Devers' first home run in his frenzy against the Yankees was a go-ahead shot off Aroldis Chapman in a come-from-behind victory on Sunday Night Baseball last week.

Said Judge: "It's a little frustrating, but there's nothing you can do about it". "I think the credit has to go to our pitching staff and what they've done".

Among the things in Boston named for Yawkey are an athletic building at Boston College and the Red Sox Most Valuable Player Award bestowed by the local chapter of the Baseball Writers Association of America.

Yankees: After an off-day on Monday, begin a three-game series in Detroit. A four game sample size is about as small as you can get, but it's still good to see Devers doesn't seem fazed by the bright lights.

Masahiro Tanaka intends to return from the disabled list for Tuesday's start, and Greg Bird and Starlin Castro could return shortly.

Racial cleansers in Boston are setting their sights on Yawkey Way, the street leading into Fenway Park.
