Aaron Judge says there was no fan interference on Martinez home run

The fiery reliever and the free agent slugger proved a brassy pair in the eighth inning with Thursday night's game slipping away from Boston. It'll be nice to be in NY and play in front of that crowd.

"For them, it's fun to watch", he said.

The Red Sox beat the Yankees 5-4 Thursday, preventing NY from sweeping the three-game series with its arch rival.

"This is a real athletic player that was a big part of a huge trade for us", Melvin said.

That gave Boston their final lead. The rivals don't meet again until June 29 in the Bronx. For all the star power that the Baby Bombers possess, it's also worth asking this: Just how good is this team, really?

Judge said he thought what they did was fine. It's a fun team. The starting rotation this year is number two, and I think those guys are probably not talked about enough.

NY was down 4-0 in the seventh, but scored four runs off of Heath Hembree and Joe Kelly to tie the game.

Freddie Freeman tallied his first five-hit game, going a flawless 5 for 5 with a home run and two RBIs in a 9-2 Braves win over the Marlins.

"He was saying it as a joke", Martinez remembered.

Martinez, who drove in a run in the third with a liner off the glove of second baseman Gleyber Torres that was turned into a forceout, sent a 97 miles per hour fastball from Betances (1-2) to the opposite field, just over Judge's outstretched glove. But the ball was clearly over the wall and Martinez circled the bases with his ninth home run. "But we didn't. We won a game of the series, now we go to Toronto".

Buyers seek USA waivers to buy Iranian oil amid new sanctions
US light crude was up $1.94 a barrel, or 2.8% at $71.00 USA , after also hitting the highest intraday level since November 2014. Still, Iran will feel the pain from USA sanctions, even without cooperation from the other worldwide partners.

"It's a long season, and there are a lot of games, and when you can get the fans into it and the fans are the way they are for a series, it definitely motivates you, gets you up and makes you feel different". "I just missed it".

Kelly walked Brett Gardner to push in the Yanks' first run of the game. Kelly threw a called third strike past Neil Walker to end the inning with two on - the seventh Yankees batter caught looking as NY repeatedly questioned the strike zone of plate umpire Stu Scheurwater.

Joe Kelly (2-0), who served a six-game suspension for hitting the Yankees' Tyler Austin with a pitch last month, was booed loudly when he entered. "I knew it had a chance". "Mentally, yesterday's not going to get to me". "It was like back in '04, '05, whenever I played here. It's part of my job".

Mookie Betts had three hits, raising his batting average to a major league-leading.361. Through 57 at-bats, Torres is batting.333 with two home runs, 11 RBI and eight runs. It was a 3-0 lead for Boston, its largest since Sunday's series finale at Texas.

"It's not going to be like this all year, hopefully", Ramirez said. "He's going to do whatever it takes to change, and figure out what he needs to be successful". On Wednesday night, they scored four runs in the eighth inning against Craig Kimbrel to turn a 6-5 deficit into a 9-6 win. It's why you play the game.

Despite playing.500 ball for the last two weeks, the Red Sox are off to their best start since 2002.

One possible reason for Walker getting work at third base is Greg Bird's progress in recovering from right ankle surgery.

Rick Porcello (5-0, 2.14 ERA) was moved up a day to start for the Red Sox.

The three regular season games felt like the "Championship Series a year ago", said manager Alex Cora, the Astros bench coach when Houston beat the Yankees in seven games in the ALCS.
