Joe Girardi Sticking With Aroldis Chapman As Closer

Chapman unleashed a 102.8 miles per hour fastball and Devers tagged it, drilling a solo home run over the centerfield fence to tie the game.

Third baseman Eduardo Nunez was traded to Boston on July 28, just three days after Devers' big league debut, so they've been adjusting and adapting to life on the Red Sox together as veteran and rookie. "I think it's been a while since a lefty has hit a homer off me".

As ESPN Stats & Info noted, it was the first home run Chapman had allowed since the World Series last season. And the Yankees hadn't beaten the Red Sox in a game when trailing by three-plus runs entering the eighth in almost a decade, since a 8-7 win on September 14, 2007 at Fenway.

It was a good weekend for the Boston Red Sox, as they took a trip to NY and won two out of three games against the Yankees. It allowed Chase Headley to race home from first with two outs.

He increased his strikeout total to 228, the most by a Red Sox left-hander. "Each day that I come here I try to work hard and make sure I'm giving my best". First will be this upcoming Saturday night at Fenway Park.

The score was tied at 1 until the eighth, when the Yankees scored the go-ahead run on Todd Frazier's sacrifice fly. They have 46 games remaining, including seven with Boston, but the Red Sox have been playing good baseball for a couple of months and the Yankees haven't been at their best since mid-June when they were 15 over.500 and leading the division by four games.

Facing a late three-run deficit and their offense stuck in neutral, the Yankees seemed headed for another depressing loss in the Most Important Game of the Year.

Both of his arms were broken. "I've called 911, I've called 911, is there anything I can do for you? I've been shot in the neck". Orr continued walked and Officer Smith followed him, issuing warnings about stopping or getting sparked with the taser.

And there's a little icing on the cake for Sea Dogs fans: Andrew Benintendi, who played with Portland last season, hit the game-winning single in the 10th inning.

"Yes [I was surprised], a little bit, especially being a left-handed batter there", Chapman said of Devers' home run.

Of course, because this was a Yankees-Red Sox game, there had to be more drama.

Something hasn't been quite right with Aroldis Chapman all season, and now it's official: the Yankees have a closer crisis on their hands.

Given how NY has people capable of closing in their bullpen in the form of strikeout artists David Robertson and Dellin Betances, and even Tommy Kahnle, perhaps the best move would be to demote Chapman if only temporarily.

The Red Sox would manage a win in extra-innings. While signing autographs as the Red Sox took batting practice, Montgomery was helped off the field after being struck in the ear by a ball. Ex-Mets farmhand Luis Cessa (0-3) will be recalled from the minors to start the opener in place of injured Masahiro Tanaka.
