Heads Up! Strong-armed fan hits Yanks’ Stanton with HR ball

Posted October 04, 2018

When I got the job that's something that I learned from them, from the Astros.

"You see a lot of things in these games", Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. Another factor could be if either one of those two are needed in Games 1, 2, or 3. 'A lot of cool things happened for our team today, so it was a good day'. "I'd like to know what he says". "Actually, when Gleyber hit it, I was sharing all that information with all the guys on the bench because I felt like I had this new-found knowledge".

NY has to go through Oakland first, in Wednesday night's AL wild-card game.

And the rest of a team that won 100 games despite some tough injuries will be there to do their part.

Cora said his team would have Monday off, and he planned to watch the NL tiebreakers and the wild-card games.

The Yankees joined Boston and Houston as teams to win 100 or more this season, making the AL the first league to have a trio of 100-win teams in the same year. Luke Voit has five home runs and 13 RBIs while slugging.868 over his past 10 games for NY. He became the first Red Sox to win a batting title since Bill Mueller in 2003.

This means they'll get to open and close every playoff series at Fenway Park.

Manager Alex Cora, who has been shuffling the lineup and resting players for the playoffs, wasn't overly concerned after Saturday's loss. "But we're going to feel good with whoever's out there". "It's not that we're going through the motions. We'll be ready for October". Aroldis Chapman shut down Boston's ninth-inning rally for his 32nd save.

In his last three outings, he has allowed 13 hits and four earned runs in 16 innings. No, he gunned it as far as he could, hitting Stanton on one hop as he jogged around second base.

But then, a Giancarlo Stanton homer made its way into the Green Monster seats, and, as tradition dictates, the fan who caught the ball chucked it back onto the field.

"They're gonna keep staying in shape and throwing the ball because you never know what happens", Cora said.

The home run record wasn't the only one to fall.

Yankees rookie Miguel Andujar, who started the season in Triple-A, ripped his 44th double of the season Friday night, tying Joe DiMaggio for the franchise's rookie record.

Giancarlo Stanton added homer No. 266 in the seventh inning as the Yankees defeated the Red Sox 8-5.

Four of the first five Red Sox batters reached base in the first against Yankees starter Luis Cessa, plus an error by Aaron Judge that allowed Betts to score from first on Brock Holt's single. "I think it's fine on both sides".

On a 1-1 count, Torres took a 93.7 miles per hour two-seam fastball and deposited it into the Red Sox bullpen, just beyond the low right-field fence.

"In the past couple weeks, what he's been doing for us has been huge", Judge said about Voit.

Red Sox: Nunez remained in the game after the brush with Cessa but remained in the game until he was pinch run for after a sixth-inning walk.
