JD Martinez homer helps Red Sox salvage finale vs. Yankees

Joe Kelly and Tyler Austin- Curse of Bambino began 100 years of bad blood between New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox

Joe Kelly and Tyler Austin- Curse of Bambino began 100 years of bad blood between New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox

"We're like.500 after 14 games", Stanton said, recalling when his new reality truly set in. But it was fun man. "It makes the game exciting and it gets you into it". Anytime the fans get into it the way they do, even when you're in NY when they're saying bad stuff to you, it's fun.

To the NHL Stanley Cup playoffs, and since my beloved Boston Bruins were knocked out of the tournament there's just one team left that I can emotionally get behind, and that's the Winnipeg Jets, who booked their first ever trip to the western conference finals last by beating the Predators 5-1 on the road in Nashville last night in a victor take all game seven. They're the best offense in baseball after the seventh inning.

Meanwhile, a good battle is also brewing in the NL Central, where the St. Louis Cardinals are now top dogs following a weekend sweep of the rival Chicago Cubs.

"Definitely huge", Martinez said.

It did appear Judge slightly, well, misjudged the fly ball, even if he clearly made contact with the fan, who was ejected from the game after the incident.

Martinez said he expects the race for the AL East title to go down to the wire.

Hanley Ramirez doesn't think it will stay this close all year. If a team keeps winning, it will keep climbing-it's as simple as that. "If you go out there and something happens, you end up missing five starts, vs. skipping one and making sure everything is fine". "I'm not saying that he will miss the next start or that there's a DL situation here, but obviously we want to make sure what's going on".




The Red Sox could have won this game easier if not for the bullpen.

The 27-year-old turned in the most dominant start of his career on the same night, tossing a one-hit shutout and striking out a career-high 16 against a unsafe Arizona Diamondbacks lineup. Kelly forced in a run with a four-pitch walk to Brett Gardner, gave up an RBI single to Judge and a run-scoring groundout to slumping Didi Gregorius, then bounced a wild pitch off catcher Christian Vazquez as Gardner scored standing up.

So it was pretty meaningful for the Bronx faithful when Aaron Judge got the go-ahead hit off Kelly on Tuesday.

After Martinez homered, Kelly created more trouble with a leadoff walk and two-out single in the bottom of the frame.

Craig Kimbrel got redemption in the ninth inning, mowing through the top of the Yankees order. "For how insane that seventh inning was, it was one of those, for whatever struggle that inning, they did a good job".

"It was a great series", Cora said.

Judge said he thought what they did was fine. "And we know what we've got to do every day to win games".
