Red Sox bats come alive, beat Yankees to finally clinch AL East

NEW YORK -- It took a lot of sweat, some long at-bats, a bad throw from the Yankees center fielder and a lifeboat tossed to them by their knuckleballer, but the Red Sox finally did it.After three grueling games at Yankee Stadium, the Red Sox got what they came for with an 11-6 win Thursday night that clinched the American League East title and ignited a raucous celebration on their rival’s home field.The final out felt more like a chance to exhale after a bullet dodged instead of a hearty triumph. The Yankees gave them hell for three days. The Sox obvious flaws in their bullpen were...

NEW YORK — The sounds of Alex Cora’s phone alerts were going off repeatedly in the background as he tried to get through his postgame press conference last night.On the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Maria, which decimated Cora’s homeland of Puerto Rico and left more than 3,000 dead, Cora’s Red Sox clinched the American League East title with an 11-6 win over the New York Yankees.“Doing it today, my phone is going nuts,” he said. “I already called (my daughter) Camila, (my girlfriend) Angelica, and my mom.

New York Yankees vs. Baltimore Orioles: Series preview

Maybe the Yankees can beat the Orioles for once. That series with the Red Sox went about as well as one could have expected. Now the Yankees will host the Orioles for the final home series of the regular season. The Bombers should, in theory, pummel a 100+ loss team, but the O’s have been a pain all year. New York is somehow only 10-6 against Baltimore in 2018. I don’t care how they do it, but just win. Game one: CC Sabathia vs. Yefry Ramirez The wheels have really come off Sabathia, haven’t they? The 38-year-old has a 6.35 ERA (3.68 FIP) over his last five starts. I’ve seen...

Is the Yankees’ second-half slide historic?

Is the Yankees’ second-half slide historic?

The lackluster play since July is notable for a few reasons If you’ve been paying attention to the Yankees in the second half, you know that they’ve been a little underwhelming. After posting a .653 winning percentage in the first three months of the season, the team’s managed just a 31-25 record since. That’s still a .554 winning percentage, and good for a 90-win pace over a full year, but when the Red Sox are close to 110 wins and the Rays are closing on 90, it’s certainly a letdown. Is this historical, though? Good teams often slow down to an extent in the second half. Nobody...

Brett Gardner is caught in the middle of the Yankees’ outfield situation

Brett Gardner is caught in the middle of the Yankees’ outfield situation

Gardner is overqualified to be a fifth outfielder, but he’s not playing well enough to crack the lineup regularly. It is very rare for athletes to finish their careers with storybook endings. Just ask Alex Rodriguez, Mark Teixeira, Joe Torre or Joe Girardi. Typically, athletes and coaches are forced out and replaced by someone younger and cheaper. For Brett Gardner, this could be the beginning of the end. The Yankees’ veteran leader has been demoted into a part-time role for the first time since his rookie year, and it’s pretty justifiable. The Yankees have four younger, superior...

Yankee pitching can’t hold off Red Sox bats, lose series finale 11-6

We knew it was only a matter of time before Boston’s bats woke up. This game had everything you’d want from the Yankees’ offense. Big home runs, a half-Interstate worth of traffic on the basepaths, some speed, and the starter knocked out after four innings. In the end, though, pitching cost the Yankees a chance at a sweep, with Boston taking the series finale 11-6. Luke Voit got the offense rolling with a record-breaking home run. In the second inning, following Gary Sanchez’s walk, Voit absolutely crushed a ball more than 400’ into Monument Park. The home run was Voit’s tenth...
