Yankees’ Judge walks off Astros for 2nd time in 4 days

Aaron Judge drove a three-run homer in the 10th inning for his second walk-off hit versus the Astros in four days, and the New York Yankees recovered after nearly being no-hit for the second consecutive game to defeat Houston 6-3 for a four-game split between the AL’s top teams. Giancarlo Stanton ended a historic hitless drought for New York with a one-out homer in the seventh inning, and DJ LeMahieu followed with a tying two-run drive in the eighth. After Michael King stranded the bases loaded in the 10th, Isiah Kiner-Falefa dropped a two-strike bunt that moved automatic runner Aaron Hicks to third. Right-hander Seth Martinez intentionally walked pinch-hitter Matt Carpenter and struck out LeMahieu, setting […]

Gerrit Cole’s longest no-hit bid of MLB career broken up in 8th inning as New York Yankees beat Tampa Bay Rays for 50th win

Gerrit Cole will continue topping the list of best active major league pitchers without a no-hitter after a spectacular seven-inning performance in the New York Yankees’ 4-2 win over the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field on Monday night. The triumph put the Yankees a season-high-tying 33 games over .500 at 50-17, matching the historic 1998 club for the third-best 67-game start in franchise history. Cole, trying to become the 13th pitcher to throw a no-hitter in pinstripes, permitted only three baserunners through seven innings before infielder Isaac Paredes’ sharp grounder up the middle in the eighth put an end to the longest no-hit bid of Cole’s […]

Max Scherzer, Jacob deGrom moving closer to return with New York Mets

Max Scherzer and Jacob deGrom are moving closer to a return for the National League East-leading Mets. Scherzer, who injured his left oblique while pitching versus St. Louis on May 18, returned to New York after rehabbing in Florida and threw in the outfield at Citi Field before Tuesday night’s series opener versus Milwaukee. The 37-year-old right-hander, a three-time Cy Young Award winner, is expected to throw a simulated game Thursday. Scherzer stated he’s not ready to put a timetable on when he might return to the active roster. “The way to describe this injury, the rehab of this, half the battle’s getting back […]

Minnesota Twins reinstate Carlos Correa from COVID-19 IL

The Minnesota Twins reinstated shortstop Carlos Correa from the COVID-19 injured list before their game versus the New York Yankees on Wednesday night, a small but significant step toward restoring their depleted roster to full strength. The AL Central-leading Twins conducted a soft launch, with Correa in the lineup as the designated hitter to face surging Yankees left-hander Nestor Cortes. “We do really miss him when he’s not here, the baseball discussions, the way he watches the game, all of those things,” manager Rocco Baldelli stated. Correa missed eight matches after testing positive while the team was in Detroit. He said his symptoms were strong, from headaches to chills […]

Miguel Andujar requests trade from New York Yankees following demotion

Miguel Andujar has requested a trade from the New York Yankees after being demoted to the minors, according to multiple reports. Andujar informed Yankees manager Aaron Boone of his wish to be traded Friday after New York optioned the outfielder to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, according to reports. The New York Post reported that Andujar has been seeking a trade since the end of the 2021 season. The Yankees have not confirmed the reports, and Boone would not elaborate on his discussion with Andujar, calling the demotion a result of a “tough numbers game.” Looking for the best online betting site and Live betting?

Rays get 2 hits, both homers, top Yanks 4-2 for 4-game split

Taylor Walls and Ji-Man Choi homered for Tampa Bay’s only hits, and the Rays scored two runs in the seventh inning on four walks and a hit batter in a 4-2 victory over the New York Yankees on Sunday that gained a four-game split. Walls, in a 1 for 34 slide, homered on a 3-1 fastball from Luis Severino (3-1) for a 2-1 lead in the fifth and then made an outstanding defensive play at second to end the eighth inning. With a runner on third, Walls ranged to the shortstop side of the base, diving to grab Aaron Hicks’ grounder. Walls popped to his feet and threw […]

New York Yankees put slugger Giancarlo Stanton on 10-day injured list because of sore ankle

Yankees slugger Giancarlo Stanton is on the injured list for the fourth consecutive season. Stanton was placed on the 10-day IL on Wednesday as the ailing Yankees made a flurry of roster moves less than an hour before their 2-0 victory over Baltimore in the series finale. Manager Aaron Boone later clarified the injury to the star’s right lower leg was an inflamed ankle after the team had revealed it was a strained calf strain. “He is feeling pretty good,” Boone said before the game. “I think we hope that he said something early enough to where this doesn’t become long.” New York also put struggling reliever Jonathan […]

New York Yankees reliever Chad Green to have Tommy John surgery

New York Yankees reliever Chad Green will undergo Tommy John surgery, manager Aaron Boone revealed Sunday. Boone stated Green, who was placed on the injured list Saturday because of his ailing right elbow, is still deciding on who will perform the surgery. The team faced the right-hander on the 15-day IL on Saturday with what was described at the time as a right elbow strain. However, needing second and third opinions, Boone didn’t sugarcoat things — calling the injury “significant” before the Yankees’ 7-5 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Saturday.

Cortes takes no-hit bid into 8th, Yanks beat Rangers 1-0

Nestor Cortes may be the least-heralded top starting pitcher in the major leagues. The New York Yankees left-hander was five outs from a no-hitter when he threw his 103rd pitch, and No. 9 hitter Eli White looped a single into short center field. The 27-year-old Cortes, a regular starter in the major leagues since only last July, rocked back twice slightly and grinned with disappointment and satisfaction. “When the emotions and the adrenaline is rushing, everything feels great,” he said. “But now I feel like I got hit by a truck.” Cortes, Clay Holmes and Aroldis Chapman combined on a two-hitter, Anthony Rizzo doubled in a run in the eighth and the […]

New York Mets’ Tylor Megill, 4 relievers combine for no-hitter vs. Philadelphia Phillies

New York Mets starter Tylor Megill and four relievers combined on the first no-hitter of the Major League Baseball season, teaming up to throw a whopping 159 pitches and defeat the Philadelphia Phillies 3-0 Friday night. Megill was pulled after five innings and 88 pitches. The bullpen took over from there, with Drew Smith, Joely Rodriguez, Seth Lugo and Edwin Diaz completing the second no-hitter in Mets history. With the crowd of 32,416 standing and chanting “Let’s go, Mets,” Diaz finished it off in style, striking out Bryce Harper, Nick Castellanos and J.T. Realmuto in the ninth — all of them swinging. “Team game,” Megill said. “I’m ecstatic. It’s crazy,” he said. “First one I’ve been […]
