Betts hits slam, Red Sox crush Yanks for 9th win in row

Notably, Yankees star Aaron Judge was standing tall in the middle of the pile, seemingly trying to break up the brawl and protect Kelly. He is 1-0 and has not surrendered a single run over 14 innings.

Nationals 4, Braves 1: Stephen Strasburg threw eight scoreless innings, and Ryan Zimmerman hit a two-run triple in the first to give Washington all the offense it needed to defeat visiting Atlanta.

While all the talk heading into the season was about Sanchez, Judge, and Stanton, it was a Red Sox trio that stole the show Tuesday.

Martinez came to the plate with the bases loaded in the bottom of the sixth, and the score still relatively close at 5-1.

Rick Porcello is on the hill for his third start of the year for the Red Sox in this contest.

It was a miscue that didn't end up costing the Red Sox anything - the Rays couldn't get the ball out of the infield against Kimbrel - but it's nevertheless a mistake that Cora owned up to on Tuesday afternoon.

Luis Severino, coming off a third-place finish in the American League Cy Young, said he wanted to be mentioned with today's greats.

The Yankees brought in Chasen Shreve with two outs in the inning and runners at first and second. He's not replaced by one player - although Brock Holt and Tzu-Wei Lin will be filling in at shortstop - but by a team that is on a magical run, on a nine-game winning streak and the best start in franchise history. "I need to maybe go to the bullpen or see video, and see what's going on". Why were the Red Sox able to dominant last night?

After an impressive two-homer debut, Stanton's slumped.

Severino, however, had nothing to do with Boston's runs volcano in the sixth.

New York Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton walks to the dugout after striking out during the third inning of a baseball game against the Boston Red Sox in Boston, Tuesday, April 10, 2018.

Unless major injuries happen, it seems more than likely that both teams will indeed be playing October baseball - it is only a matter of who will be the #Al East champ and who will be a wild card team. The New York Mets placed catcher Travis d'Arnaud on the disabled list with a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow, and surgery is possible. His sixth inning grand slam was the first by a hitter for the Red Sox against NY since September of 2013.

Mariners 8, Royals 3: Jean Segura had three hits and two RBIs, and Mitch Haniger and Kyle Seager also drove in two runs apiece to support Felix Hernandez in Seattle's victory over host Kansas City.

Yankees relievers have allowed 53 runs (45 earned) over 96 innings this season.
