Sanchez and Bird power Yankees past Boston Red Sox 6-2

In those 2.2 innings, the Yankees managed to score three runs on four hits.

"I don't think that was a bad pitch", said Gray, who dropped to 8-9 overall and 2-4 as a Yankee.

CC Sabathia has dominated the Red Sox all season. Pending the outcome of later games, the Yankees held a one-game lead over the Twins for the first AL wild-card spot, a 2 1/2-game edge over the Angels and a 3 1/2-game advantage over the Orioles. He threw a career-high 123 pitches in five innings during his first win while facing Masahiro Tanaka on June 6 and then allowed three runs and seven hits in 6 2/3 innings August 12.

Since coming off the 10-day disabled list due to arm fatigue, Masahiro Tanaka has won his last two starts entering Saturday's matchup against Boston lefty Drew Pomeranz.

"I've known him a long time", Holliday said.

It is the third time Boston owns a 5 1/2-game lead on NY. "So I'm going to prepare myself for my next outing and try to go out there and do some good stuff out there".

He added that he did not care if the Red Sox were upset and that if they take issue with him he'll gladly fight them. All you can do is play the next game on the schedule until there isn't a game on the schedule.

This will be Game 3 of 4 between these two massive rivals, and will see center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr return to the line up after being activated from the disabled list. You hit a clunker just over the head of the first baseman like Derek Jeter did in his final at-bat, and you win the game.

The veteran lefty had just registered two strikeouts to end the first inning, stranding the bases loaded and showing there was life in the Yankees after a demoralising three-game sweep by Cleveland. Farrell said Pedroia's knee showed no ill effects.

No word yet from Major League Baseball on the appeals by Yankees catchers Gary Sanchez (four games) and Austin Romine (two games) of their suspensions from recent brawls in Detroit.

He is not expected to play on Saturday. Sabathia called the Red Sox "weak", specifically, and the Red Sox basically laughed it off.

The Yankees took a 1-0 lead two batters into the game when Judge doubled to left field, but the Red Sox used their power to take the lead. LHP David Price (elbow inflammation) is set for another bullpen session Monday.

One night, Eduardo Nunez was irritating the Yankees with a bunt.

"I don't have any response for that", he said.

Today's big game between the Yankees and the Red Sox can be watched from 1.05 p.m. ET, and will be broadcast live on the YES network, the NESN network, as well as MLBN (out of market only).
