D-Rob takes the loss, but he is not to blame

NEW YORK -- Another bad loss against a bad team, but don't blame David Robertson. Yes, Robertson failed to fully replace Mariano Rivera for a night, but he has been a pretty close facsimile for much of the year. Robertson isn't the problem. He has proven he deserves top closer money and the Yankees should lock him up this offseason to team him with Dellin Betances for next three or four years, knowing there will be a few nights a season when Robertson doesn't have it and it ends up with a guy like Chris Carter sending a 3-0 pitch into the night for a ninth inning three-run blast in a...

Pedroia making gains, but has near miss

BOSTON -- For a moment on Sunday night, it seemed as if Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia had come through for his team once again when they needed him most. Down by a run with two outs in the ninth, Pedroia stepped in against New York Yankees closer David Robertson with the looming presence of David Ortiz on deck. He watched Robertson’s first three pitches miss outside the zone before taking a strike. The next three he swung at, fouling the last two straight back as he just missed them.

Rapid Reaction: Yankees 12, Rangers 11

ARLINGTON, Texas -– A wild Tuesday night that lasted nearly four hours at Globe Life Park ended when Yankees closer David Robertson retired the Rangers Adrian Beltre on a long fly ball to preserve a 12-11 victory. Robertson's 31-pitch ninth inning had some drama as the Rangers cut a 12-9 deficit to one and loaded the bases with their best hitter at the plate with two out. But Robertson's 3-2 pitch ended things. The Rangers' J.P. Arencibia, however, tried to win Tuesday night's game by himself.
