Boston's Andrew Benintendi Picks Up Where Aaron Judge Left Off

Boston's Andrew Benintendi Picks Up Where Aaron Judge Left Off

Benintendi is nearly as hot as Sale at the plate. "He's got a attractive swing, and he's a natural-looking hitter".

The New York Yankees couldn't touch Eduardo Rodriguez Friday night, but they had no trouble against Addison Reed and Joe Kelly. He's a natural lefty hitter.

"I rushed, that's basically it, " Frazier said. His first outing in the rivalry was August 6, 2015, in NY when he allowed two runs (one earned) on two hits and struck out seven during five innings in a 2-1 loss. Minnesota received 4 1/3 innings of shutout relief in its sixth consecutive win.

Montgomery, a rookie, has a 4.05 ERA and 1.236 WHIP in 21 appearances with the Yankees in 2017. Outfielder Aaron Hicks is 6-for-16 against him. John Farrell had suggested that Pedroia might play the field on Wednesday, but instead, Pedroia found himself on the bench during the Red Sox' series finale against the Tampa Bay Rays. He politely dismissed that suggestion, wary of a jinx - "Please don't say that", he said - and played down his role on the other side of the Boston-New York rivalry.

In front of the ninth sellout crowd of the season in New York, Benintendi put on an impressive power display and tied a career high by driving in six runs for the second time. Rich Hill got a no-decision after allowing two runs and five hits with nine strikeouts over six innings. He also is among four pitchers with at least 10 double-digit strikeout games on the road, joining Hall of Famers Randy Johnson (1999, 2000, 2001), Nolan Ryan (1973) and Sandy Koufax (1965).

Boston left-hander Drew Pomeranz (12-4) extended his career-high winning streak to six games by allowing three runs and seven hits in 6 2/3 innings.

The Angels put together a four-run seventh and added an eighth-inning run to beat the Mariners, 6-5 in Seattle. Could he be returning to the dominant pitcher we saw over the first two months? "Yeah, he should be in that conversation". He returned to the 10-day disabled list for the third time this season with left knee inflammation.

The Boston Red Sox blew a 3-0 8th inning lead and went on to fall 5-4 to the New York Yankees on Friday night at Yankee Stadium.

"They made him a role player because of who we had, but I always felt like Nuni could hit, because he hit good pitching", the Yankees' C.C. Sabathia said. "That prepared me to face everything". That walk seemed to take a lot out of him. Severino will not be facing Sale or Porcello this time.

Starter Jordan Montgomery was hit in the head by a flyball while he signed autographs as the Red Sox took batting practice. Even his worst start in 2016, though, (seven earned runs twice) was not as bad as Saturday's slaughterhouse performance.

With three showdowns in four weeks against their closest pursuer for the division title, the Boston Red Sox jiggered their starting rotation to make sure ace Chris Sale will pitch in all three series.

The Yankees trimmed the Sox's lead to two in the fifth when Didi Gregorius scored on a Jacoby Ellsbury groundout. "I was just hoping it stayed on track and I gave [third baseman] Frazier a good hop". The lefty also topped his high for wins, having won a combined 11 for San Diego and Boston past year.
