Gardner, Judge rally Yankees past Red Sox

Gardner, Judge rally Yankees past Red Sox

At the same time, the crosstown Yankees had started slow, while watching the Red Sox go 17-2 and seize a 7.5-game division league. The result was as rich and juicy a sports story as two teams were ever destined to write together. Bettors are able to gamble on the game's total with odds posted at -105 for over 9 runs and -115 for under 9. They've gained 9.8 units for bettors taking the money line and 4.3 units against the spread (ATS).

In away games since the beginning of previous year, Barnes has a 4.81 ERA (21 runs, 39 1/3 innings).

Wednesday night, they would rally back to beat the Boston Red Sox.

Boston is 14-6 in its last 20 games on the road.

NY games have a 20-14-1 over/under record so far in 2018. Eduardo Rodriguez will start the finale and is 3-0 with a 5.29 ERA and 39 strikeouts this season.

And it looked destined for a rubber match if Craig Kimbrel could convert a five-out save for the first time in his career. The 2012 AL Cy Young Award victor is 2-4 with a 5.11 ERA in seven starts. Sabathia made four starts against the team in 2017, compiling a spotless 4-0 record in 2017, posting a ideal 4-0 record with a 1.04 ERA and 18 strikeouts. The bullpen has an ERA of 3.61, along with a WHIP of 1.16. Red Sox relievers are tied for 21st in the majors in eighth inning ERA (5.00).

Then against Judge, Kimbrel jumped ahead 1-2 when he tried to place a 97-mph heater up and on the outer edge, but Judge put a hurting on it, lining it square over the wall in center for a two-run blast.

And while all this dad stuff and kindness to strangers is lovely, we really hope Donald remembered Mother's Day. However, the world premiere was tonight and the lucky few in attendance have shared their thoughts on Twitter .

Tazawa relieved Chen Wei-yin, who was charged with nine runs in three innings, but allowed more damage by letting Albert Almora Jr. reach on a single and come around to score the Cubs' 10th run on a two-out double by Anthony Rizzo, who went 3-for-5 with five RBIs. He had yet to pitch this season after playing for Class A affiliates Lowell and Greenville last season. Sacrifice flies by Aaron Hicks and Gary Sanchez accounted for the other NY runs. That frequently leads to intense conflict between the AL East powers.

NY had even less hits than Boston, but still prevailed thanks to two jacks from Giancarlo Stanton. The team has hit.248/.355/.465 over its last five matchups and is 5-0 SU during that stretch. "It's still early. You hate to lose games like this, but we're not really anxious about them".

After Gardner hit his triple at 101.2 miles per hour off the bat, Judge followed with his ninth homer of the season.

Sabathia was almost let down by his own bullpen in his last start, but he walked away with a no-decision instead in an eventual 7-6 win.

Compared to his total season slash line of.284/.422/.627, Judge seemed to have some trouble hitting left-handed pitchers past year, slashing.230/.439/.496 over 155 plate appearances. The over has cashed in three of those games, compared to five that have gone under against left-handed starting pitchers.

Angels 8, Rockies 0: Rene Rivera homered with a sore right hand, Jaime Barria threw efficiently into the sixth inning and Los Angeles ended host Colorado's six-game win streak.

NY (26-10) broke a tie with Boston for first place in the AL East and has sole possession of the best record in the majors for the first time since July 27, 2012.
