The Astros were at Seattle and Los Angeles home against Oakland later Tuesday night.
The call survived Girardi’s video-replay challenge, giving Boston a 2-0 lead with runners at the corners and one out. He topped his previous career best of three RBIs. But he was also thinking that he’d like another one to come his way, to give him one more shot at redemption. The righthander only got out of the inning when Brett Gardner made a leaping catch at the wall in left field.
As the 2015 baseball season comes to a close, it’s time to look back at the baseball experts of ESPN, The Sporting News and other websites to see how their predictions went. Dustin Pedroia followed with a single to advance him to third.
The Yankees were unable to score in the ninth, and once again held scoreless after the first inning, dropping to 86-71, with their Wild Card lead down to 3 games over the second place Houston Astros. You know luckily enough they’re home runs. The Sporting News, Sports Illustrated and ESPN.com as well had the Red Sox winning the East. He won five of his final eight starts after missing a month with a strained right triceps and finished his outing by allowing five baserunners the rest of the night. The Houston Astros slipped a half-game behind the Angels. We’re already viewed right now as he was he listening to these home runs hearing Joseph called earlier two home runs that’s.
With the Yankees loss, the Blue Jays clinched a tie for the AL East title.
Pineda (12-9) and the Yankees began the day looking to lock up at least a wild card, but that chance was washed away when Minnesota was rained out in Cleveland. New York kept hitting Porcello’s stuff with a two-run homer from Dustin Ackley but the Yankees’ damage was over. Matt Barnes was the next greatest contributor, pitching the sixth and seventh while allowing just one baserunner on a walk.
With his father and brother among dozens of supporters in the stands, Rick Porcello certainly didn’t want to get knocked out in the first inning.
But Girardi said he was discouraged by Pineda’s inability to straighten himself out before the first inning was over.
It was the first multihomer game for Swihart, who entered with three long balls this season.
The Yankees lost to the Red Sox 10-4. With three runs now on the board, Blake Swihart chose to add three more.
All the complicated equations for the Yankees’ postseason clinching, all the talk about when to spray champagne, were quickly muted during Tuesday’s top of the first inning. He beat them four times this season.
So this game got off to…quite the start. “He was up.” New York’s offense sputtered after getting four runs.
Rookie Arodys Vizcaino recorded his eighth save in nine chances. The left fielder also made outstanding defensive plays in both of the two contests. Vizcaino then struck out Matt den Dekker to end it. Or the Yankees with their 10-4 loss Tuesday night don’t appear to be a playoff ready team. After the first inning, he only allowed two hits. Regardless of the position of either club in the American League standings, each game between the two teams is hard fought and usually lengthy in time. Watch it all and let the schadenfreude wash over you.
Miami pulled even at 2 in the eighth on Martin Prado’s run-scoring single off Alex Colome (7-5).
