Sat, 29 Apr 2017 05:20:30 GMTA mere 34 years into his tenure as the Yankees play-by-play announcer, John Sterling is good for a few malapropisms, dated cultural references and kindly grandpa jokes per game. After the Yankees overcame an eight-run deficit to knock off the Orioles in a wild 1411 win on Friday night, the veteran announcer babbled with superlatives describing the thrilling comeback. “That’s the kind game you put on cassette!” Sterling bellowed after Matt Holliday belted a walk-off three-run home run to clinch the win.
Sat, 29 Apr 2017 01:27:44 GMTYankees outfielder Aaron Judge crushed the hardest-hit home run of the Statcast era during Friday’s 1411 win over the Baltimore Orioles. Judge's home run off of O’s starter Kevin Gausman came off the bat at 119.4 mph, breaking Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton’s record of 119.2 mph (Statcast information was first available in all 30 MLB ballparks in 2015). Baltimore built a 91 lead after touching up New York starter CC Sabathia for seven earned runs and getting a grand slam by Mark Trumbo, but the Yankees rallied in the late innings to tie the game 1111 on a ninth-inning home run by Starlin Castro.

Fri, 28 Apr 2017 04:35:00 GMTBOSTON (CBS) — To say the Red Sox offense is struggling to score runs is an understatement. Boston was shut out of the third time in their last seven games on Thursday night, falling 3-0 to the New York Yankees despite another stellar start from lefty Chris Sale. The Red Sox are just 2-5 over this quiet stretch from their bats, scoring a whopping 12 runs in that span. They had just three hits off of Masahiro Tanaka on Thursday, all singles. The final 14 batters that Boston sent to the plate all sat down in order. The team that led the majors in runs scored last season has just 78 in their first 21 games.
