Aaron Judge Breaks Record for Most Consecutive Games with Strikeout

Aaron Judge Breaks Record for Most Consecutive Games with Strikeout

The New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox meet in the rubber match of their three game set from Fenway Park on Sunday. Yet the Red Sox were only 1-2 in those games, and Sale got a no-decision in the lone victory, a 10-inning affair last Sunday night in NY.

Regardless, after Moreland banged a pinch single up the middle to drive in the tying and go-ahead runs, and the Red Sox tacked on two runs in the eighth against embattled Aroldis Chapman, and Addison Reed and Craig Kimbrel combined to record the final eight outs (six by strikeout), well, you could nearly hear the air come out the Yankees' balloon.

Our models project Austin for 5.8 FanDuel points at $2,300, making him an unattractive option in DFS tonight. He tied the franchise record for consecutive saves opportunities converted.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Mitch Haniger hit a grand slam, Nelson Cruz added his 31st home run and Seattle rolled to its fourth straight wi.

Things looked good after a two-run shot by Gary Sanchez in the first, but Severino turned in his worst start since last season, giving up 10 runs (eight earned) including a pair of home runs to Andrew Benintendi, prompting this gleeful picture of Mookie Betts by our Sung Min Kim.

Yawkey Way, just two blocks long, is a narrow and unremarkable roadway, but it is familiar to Red Sox fans because it transforms into a pedestrian promenade on game days, with much of it cordoned off to allow thousands of fans to gather to drink beer, eat grilled sausages and buy souvenirs before entering the ballpark.

He faces reigning Cy Young victor Rick Porcello, who, riding his first real offensive support of the season, has turned 4-14 into 7-14 with three straight wins. NY began the day with an NL-worst.221 batting average in August. The Yankees still own the first AL wild card spot and hold a healthy 3 1/2-game over the second-place Los Angeles Angels and Minnesota Twins.

In Atlanta, Scooter Gennett hit a grand slam to lead Cincinnati past the Braves. He gave up seven hits, walked two and struck out four. Brandon Workman and Addison Reed threw scoreless innings and, after Tommy Kahnle gave up two runs in the eighth to make it a non-save situation, All-Star closer Craig Kimbrel worked a flawless ninth.

It was less than two weeks ago that CC Sabathia contemplated retirement after injuring his right knee in Toronto. He struck out five, but had some struggles, dropping a ball at first base, hitting a batter and throwing a bunt attempt into the Atlanta dugout.

The first came in the second inning.

Trout now has 26 home runs. He has now struck out at least nine batters in 21 of his 25 starts this season.

Maybe it was that the Sox had rallied to beat the Yanks in 10 innings only five nights before in the Bronx. Despite having provided scant run support for Sale at times, they are 18-7 in his starts.
