JD Martinez embraces the hate from Yankee fans following devastating tiebreaking homer

Gardner said later that it was such a tough pitch, he wished he had let it go; there was no virtue in going down swinging when a calculated take would have given him a better shot to claw his way on base. But it's fun, man. He hit two longballs and five RBIs in the final two games of the series. Anytime the fans get into it the way they do, even when you're in NY when they're saying bad stuff to you, it's fun. Well, now they get to play the Marlins, as Thursday's win was the first of a four-game series. It's a fun team.

"Definitely the energy was different", Martinez said. They've got something going on good there.

But Thursday turned out to be one of those nights every player experiences during the grind of the long season. We also have something good here.

Martinez said he expects the race for the AL East title to go down to the wire. They all look the same in the box score, as they say, and Martinez now has nine homers and 29 RBI in his first year in Boston. May. That's OK, because Red Sox fans at least could use a break from the Bombers, who lost for just the second time in their last 19 games with that squeaker win by Boston last night.

With the win, the Phillies remain a half-game behind the Braves for first place in the NL East heading into Atlanta's game Thursday night.

Rodriguez allowed just one hit in five scoreless innings, a fourth-inning smash by Giancarlo Stanton off the glove of third baseman Rafael Devers.

He said: "One or two points decide these kind of matches". "Then I really set up a good opportunity for me to step up". He was off for six months but the elbow started hurting again when he began training to get ready for the preseason.

Heath Hembree dropped Tyler Austin into an 0-for-18 skid by inducing a flyout to start the seventh, but Miguel Andujar singled, Gleyber Torres flared a checked-swing single to right and Walker walked to load the bases. And yes, Kimbrel, despite his save on this night, remains one of Boston's freshest goats after allowing Brett Gardner's two-run triple and Aaron Judge's two-run home run on Wednesday night.

After Martinez homered, Kelly created more trouble with a leadoff walk and two-out single in the bottom of the frame. Kelly then bounced a run-scoring wild pitch off catcher Christian Vazquez. Over these past couple weeks, we've seen guys like Cody Allen, Ken Giles, and Craig Kimbrel all fail to finish off Yankee hitters. That's when the umpires finally made a decision to stop playing in the pouring rain, and the delay lasted just around one hour.

"It was a great series", Cora said.

We mentioned in this space that one of the impressive aspects of the Braves' start is they had played a pretty tough schedule early on.

Many were blaming the fan for making that catch, but I really don't think Judge was going to grab that, and there certainly wasn't inference [we have a co-byline here so I'll point out this is Snyder talking].
