Watch a Yankees fan deflate during Devers' home run

  • Red Sox Noise MLB Playoffs

"No pressure at all", veteran teammate Hanley Ramirez said.

In Toronto, J.A. Happ won his third straight start and the Blue Jays hit three home runs in a 7-1 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates, with Josh Donaldson, Justin Smoak, and Darwin Barney all going yard in the victory. While battling command issues, he surrendered a game-tying home run to rookie Rafeal Devers - only the second time he's given up a home run to a left-handed hitter in his eight-year career.

Though the Red Sox have been in first place for the majority of the season, there's been an apparent lack of interest in the team. He's jumped feet first into this rivalry. "Each day that I come here I try to work hard and make sure I'm giving my best". Baseball is best when its two biggest brands, the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox are doing well.

"I wish it wasn't (5 1/2 games out)", Headley said.

Boston held the lead on Friday before a rare bullpen implosion led to a 5-4 setback but had little trouble getting to Yankees ace Luis Severino on Saturday and blasted its way to a 10-5 triumph. Aroldis Chapman provided it when he walked the bases loaded with no outs in the ninth, but got of the jam thanks to a spectacular throw by Aaron Hicks, who gunned down Eduardo Nunez at third base for a game-saving double play.

Those career-high 10 runs allowed made Severino the first pinstriper since Andy Hawkins on June 5, 1989 to cough up double-digit runs in fewer than five innings pitched at Yankee Stadium. Devers is also just the second rookie to homer off Chapman (Maikel Franco did so in 2015), but the 20-year-old is the youngest player to hit a home run against the flame-throwing southpaw.

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.

"I treat every pitcher the same", Devers said through a translator.

But who knows how many more times Montgomery may be needed?

Baseball hates you. You might think baseball loves you, but no, if baseball is being kind to you, it's only so that it can hurt you later.

Craig Kimbrel (4-0) struck out Brett Gardner with a runner on third to end the ninth and then tossed a ideal 10th. He became the first Red Sox player since Jimmie Foxx in 1938 to hit multiple three-run bombs against the Yankees.

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. He had a 1-0 lead in the fifth when Austin Romine tied it by blasting a shot to deep right that backed Mookie Betts up to the wall.

With the loss, the New York Yankees fall to 61-55 overall.

"He was outstanding once again", Farrell said.

As it turned out, of course, Kaprielian injured the elbow again in spring training and needed Tommy John surgery.

Fortunately for the Yankees, the American League as a whole is down this year. Trevor Bauer (10-8, 4.79 ERA) pitches for former Red Sox manager Terry Francona and the Indians. The New York Mets are up next for the Yankees, with their game scheduled for Monday at 4 p.m. The Yankees went on to a 2-1 win.
