Red Sox And Yankees To Play Two Games In London Next June

Only NCIS on CBS and Rosanne on ABC generated higher ratings during Primetime in the New York DMA last night.

Reds 2, Mets 1: Visiting New York wasted a first-inning rally by batting out of turn, and Adam Duvall led off the 10th with a home run to win it for Cincinnati. The aforementioned Gardner entered the game hitting near the Mendoza line, finished 3-4 with three runs and those two ribbies.

The Boston Red Sox will look to salvage a win and avoid the sweep after dropping the first two games of the series, including a 9-6 loss in game two on Wednesday.

"We are winning and that is the most important thing, " Gardner said of the Yankees, who had won 16 of the previous 17 games and were tied with the Red Sox for first place in the AL East. "[Wednesday], he was really able to get in some good counts and put some aggressive swings in the strike zone and drive some balls".

The Red Sox dropped a game out of first place, and in the same time the Yankees have ripped off 17 wins in 18 games, they are 8-9 following a 17-2 start that put them 7 1/2 games in front of NY.

After Benintendi's blast pulled the Red Sox within 4-3, Yankee catcher Gary Sanchez drove in Judge with a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the fifth. Gardner drilled a ball into left-center field, well over the head of center fielder Mookie Betts, who was playing shallow.

Braves 5, Rays 2: Nick Markakis hit a three-run homer and Atlanta set a franchise record for consecutive shutout innings on the road.

Boston took a 2-1 lead when Moreland hit a 2-0 sinker over the center field fence for his sixth homer of the season with one out in the second.

Meanwhile Twitter couldn't contain its excitement over sweets made by none other than Elon Musk as he got thousands of retweets. The brilliant mind behind SpaceX and Tesla is now all set to make candy and he promises that "it's going to be amazing".


The Yankees' eighth-inning rally bailed out the bullpen, which surrendered a one-run lead in the seventh.

Sabathia is unbeaten in his last 14 regular-season starts since August 19.

The left-hander is 17-13 with a 4.12 ERA in 39 career starts against the Red Sox and 15-9 with a 4.17 ERA in 32 starts against the Red Sox since becoming a Yankee in 2009.

Cora described it as a "mild case of carpal tunnel" and said Price will rejoin the team Thursday. The extent of his absence will be determined Thursday afternoon following a bullpen session in NY. Red Sox Manager Alex Cora called the diagnosis good news after Price went through a battery of tests.

"We'll see what works for him", Cora said. We need him here. "He's a big part of what we're trying to accomplish".

Porcello allowed five runs in 5 1/3 innings - his first time giving up three or more runs this season. During his most recent outing, Rodriguez struck out 10 while throwing 107 pitches.

A batter later Aaron Judge added a two-run shot to make Aroldis Chapman's one-inning, three-strikeout save that much easier.
