On Sunday Night Baseball, Chris Sale and Jordan Montgomery went toe-to-toe, each allowing a run.
"We ought to be able to lead the effort and if others in the community favor a change, we would welcome it - particularly in light of the country's current leadership stance with regard to intolerance", Henry said".
BOSTON (AP) - A foundation set up by the former owners of the Boston Red Sox says its "disheartened" its namesake has become embroiled in the national controversy over racially divisive monuments. Couple good pitches. Probably the first one was the best one I had to hit the whole at-bat. We don't need to worry about what they're doing or who they're playing.
Kahnle recorded just two outs, allowing two runs on three hits and a walk. Boston would score two more off Aroldis Chapman in the eighth inning and go on to win the game.
That was the only blemish of Porcello's day though as he allowed just three hits on the afternoon in six innings of work.
The Red Sox visit Yankee Stadium the weekend after next for a four-game series.
In making their comeback, the Yankees had taken advantage of an injury to the Red Sox left-hander Drew Pomeranz, who had beaten the Yankees three times this season. He gave the Sox a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the second inning with a two-run triple into the center-field triangle against Gray.
"It was nice. The crowd was great", Gray said. Angels starter JC Ramirez (11-10) dodged some trouble in the early innings as the Orioles put runners in scoring position in the first and third but came away allowing only one run. He's batting.321 in August with 14 RBIs. "That ball that Didi hit into the gap, I mean, I was on the mound and he caught it standing up, he tracked it down, and I thought for sure that ball was going to be down for at least a double". New York's (66-57) only run against Porcello came in the top of the fifth when Brett Gardner hit a line-drive home run into the right-field corner with one out to cut the Sox lead to 2-1. Entering Saturday night's game at Fenway Park, Sale had a 1.18 ERA in 13 career games (10 starts) against the Yankees. 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 ideal ninth. "They do a really good job of turning the page". The Vanderbilt product surrendered two or fewer earned runs in each of his last nine starts but has not completed seven innings in any of the last seven. "I had the same mentality".
NOTES: After the game, the Yankees optioned RHP Bryan Mitchell to AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. In a game that saw starter Drew Pomeranz leave the game due to back spasms, it was great to see this team find a way to pull it out, especially after the bullpen squandered the lead and almost gave away the game.
Starter David Price reported that he has heard racial taunts while warming up in the bullpen at Fenway a year ago.
