As the Sox and Yanks meet at Fenway Park during the final weekend of the MLB regular season - with a chance of the Yankees returning to Fenway to renew the rivalry in the American League Division Series, should they win Wednesday's AL Wild Card Game against Oakland - it is clear that the rivalry is alive and well. With some pressure off going into the season, the 26-year-old shortstop has really settled into his own in finally becoming the player everyone associated with the Red Sox organization knew and hoped he would have.
Reigning Rookie of the Year Aaron Judge hit his first homer since coming off the disabled list September 14, and Gary Sanchez, Aaron Hicks and Luke Voit also homered to give the Yankees 264 home runs for the season.
In the 7th, with the Yankees already up 7-2, Giancarlo Stanton made it 266. He and the friend who attended the game with him are not even Red Sox fans. He remains an option to pitch in the wild-card game.
Rookie Voit hit his 13th home run in the seventh against Pomeranz.
"It happens all the time at our stadium", Stanton said.
The Sox have clinched the best record in baseball so manager Alex Cora used a lot of pitchers on Friday that the Yankees or Athletics won't see much of, if at all, in the postseason: Brian Johnson, Cuevas, Heath Hembree, Drew Pomeranz, Joe Kelly and Bobby Poyner.
"We talked about it once we started getting closer", right fielder Aaron Judge said Friday night, just after the Yankees tied the Mariners' 21-year mark.
"New NAFTA" Means New Standards For The Auto Industry
Unlike the NAFTA and the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the USMCA imposes stronger rules of origin for vehicles and automotive parts. Canada could be exempted from the auto tariffs if it agrees to limits on its auto exports to the United States, Ujczo said.
Liverpool, Mo Salah blanked in frustrating 1-0 defeat at Napoli
Klopp accepts a draw would have been more than they deserved and feels the formation Liverpool used was a mistake. The hosts defenders pinned back Liverpool's strike force of Roberto Firmino , Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.
Trump says Saudi King wouldn't last two weeks without United States support
Trump did not specify when he made the remarks to the Saudi monarch but they come on the back of increasing oil prices in the US. Trump added that he had spoken to Saudi Arabia's King Salman on Saturday to make the same point, the AFP news agency reported.
"In the past couple weeks, what he's been doing for us has been huge", Judge said about Voit.
Andujar drove in two runs on a double during New York's three-run fifth and Stanton led off the seventh with a homer off Steven Wright. J.D. Martinez has 109 runs and 127 RBIs for the Red Sox this year. The Yankees said it was not injury-related and only to give Stanton some rest. The Yankees ended up winning the game 8-5.
Now, on Saturday, in a game that means little except for the chase for No. 100, the Yankees have to deal with Eovaldi.
Hitting mainly in the No. 5 spot, Xander Bogaerts turned into a consistent, clutch hitter throughout the season and showed a little more power.
The night before, Judge walloped a pitch from Boston's Bobby Poyner to tie the record and turn the inevitable into reality.
"Admit it, Sox fans". While the left-hander largely has been dominant this season, his recent starts have left Boston fans a bit anxious about the team's ace.
Workman may make it because of his postseason experience in 2013, helping the Sox win the World Series.
