Yankees' Aaron Judge crushes home run - on his birthday!

The Sox took three out of four games in the Bronx during the final week of the season and delayed the Yankees' wild-card-clinching party.

Trend: New York is 3-6 in its first nine games on the season this season. Chapman recovered, striking out Bradley with a slider, then struck out Josh Rutledge on a 97-mph fastball for his fifth save in five chances.

No pitcher with more than four starts against the Yankees has ever had a lower ERA against NY than Sale, who has allowed just seven earned runs in 53 2/3 innings (1.17 ERA).

Reigning AL Cy Young victor Rick Porcello (1-3) lost his third straight start, giving up three runs - two earned - in 6 2/3 innings.

The fun continued for Judge in the bottom of the third when he went barreling into the right field stands in foul territory chasing a fly ball. The Yankees arrive in town with a half-game lead on the Red Sox for second place in the division having opened the season with a flourish that suggests that NY may be leaving mediocrity behind. "I did some activities yesterday, kind of tested it out a little bit".

For context, let's remember what former Miami general manager Dan Jennings once told WEEI.com when asking about the importance of an ace.

New York Yankees' Aaron Judge gestures as he crosses the plate with a two-run home run during the second inning of the team's baseball game against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park, Wednesday, April 26, 2017, in Boston. Pedroia missed his third straight game after Orioles 3B Manny Machado slid into the back of his left leg.

The 24-year-old, who turns 25 on Wednesday, pulverized his sixth home run of the season on Saturday that traveled 457 feet. "A high pain threshold, strong competitor, ready to get back on the field".

But Girardi's replay challenge overturned the call and Severino continued his impressive night, tossing seven shutout innings and yielding just three hits.
