Aggressive Approach at Plate Pays Off for Mookie Betts

Yankees’ problems run much deeper than Giancarlo Stanton

Before this game, Yankees bench coach Josh Bard had said: "We know unequivocally that Gary is going to hit".

The scuffle spilled across the field before it broke up in front of the Boston dugout on the first-base side, with Yankees sluggers Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton pushing the pile. Stanton will not be slashing.196/.288/.457 forever, and Judge is off to a very good start. Porcello has been strong in his first two starts of the year while Gray has struggled against the Red Sox in his career.

The benches and bullpens already had cleared in the third inning when Austin slid late and overaggressively into Brock Holt's leg at second base. Get the app and get the game.

Hanley Ramirez went 2 for 2 with three RBIs. He hit Jackie Bradley Jr. with the first pitch to load the bases, and Christian Vazquez followed with a grounder that Miguel Andujar botched at third, allowing Martinez to score on the error. Aroldis Chapman gave up two hits and a run on a wild pitch in the ninth, but got three outs to end the game. "We scored six runs and we were so excited about it ... and the manager missed that one". The Red Sox lost on opening day but are undefeated since then, including a 14-1 hammering last night in the opening game of this series, and are yet to be beaten at home.

"Not a cool outcome, but it was cool to see the passion and what goes on", he said. Boone said they are still waiting on more information on the status of INF Brandon Drury (severe migraines). It is incredibly early so conclusions can not be made, however, one can not be unimpressed with the way the Red Sox have come storming out of the gate. Pomeranz wants one more start to "tune in his mechanics", Cora said, and will make it at Double-A Portland on Friday.

Welbeck double seals Arsenal's sixth straight win
The club also reached the EFL Cup final - their first major final since 2003 - which they lost to Manchester United 3-2. Southampton's defeat kept it in the bottom three, three points behind Crystal Palace but with a game in hand.

The Yankees lost by their largest margin since at 15-1 loss to Houston on August 25 2015.

As the Red Sox and Yankees renewed baseball's best rivalry, Betts put on a performance of a lifetime. "So I don't think it's affecting him in a poor way, that way, outside of as a competitor and wanting to succeed every time".

It was the shortest start of Price's career. He threw six innings, allowing three runs on four hits with two walks and four strikeouts as the Yankees picked up an 8-3 victory.

In a marquee matchup between two teams expected to compete for the American League East title, the Red Sox came out on top in a 14-1 drubbing of their longtime rivals.
