Oh, and Gardner's eighth inning two run triple was the spark and meant redemption for a player who that day had been the subject of reporters' questions to manager Aaron Boone because of his slow start-Gardner was off to a.198 mark.
That said, the Red Sox have not been swept by any team this season, and they have gone a ideal 6-0 with Eduardo Rodriguez (3-0, 5.29 ERA) on the mound. Chris Sale has a 2.02 ERA and looks nearly untouchable, Rick Porcello is still more than dependable, and despite two blown saves, Craig Kimbrel is still one of the game's best closers.
Sure, 10 of the 20 runs came in two games.
Barnes and Kimbrel gave up four runs on three hits and one walk.
Unfortunately, the Red Sox' final lead of the night was short-lived.
The Toronto Blue Jays couldn't muster a hit against Canadian native James Paxton on Tuesday night, but they made up for it with a four-run eighth inning last night against the Seattle Mariners for a 5-2 win at the Rogers Centre.
Gardner capped a slump-busting performance with a go-ahead, two-run triple off Craig Kimbrel in the eighth inning, Aaron Judge followed with a homer and NY rallied to beat the Boston Red Sox 9-6 Wednesday night for its 17th victory in 18 games. Red SoxThe Yankees have won 17 of 18, marking their finest 18-game stretch since 1953, while claiming ownership of the best record in the Majors at 26-10.
Comcast preps Fox offensive with new bid
It's clear that the AT&T-Time Warner trial prompted Comcast to try to steal the Fox deal out from under Disney . Disney , Fox, and Comcast each own 30 percent of Hulu; Time Warner owns the other 10 percent.
Buffett, Gates are latest bitcoin critics, halting $10000 push
But I know I don't have to do a thing and probably in a couple of years, we'll own 6 percent without laying out another dollar. Buffett appreciated this proposal as it could increase Berkshire's stake in Apple by 5% due to the lack of shares outstanding.
Carvalhal reveals why he still thinks Swansea will survive
The first of their two remaining games is against Southampton , in a clash which could decide the fates of both teams. Carlos Carvalhal's men spurned chances and their failings in front of goal meant they remained very much in the mire.
Brett Gardner capped a slump-busting performance with a go-ahead, two-run triple off Craig Kimbrel in the eighth inning, Aaron Judge followed with a homer and the Yankees rallied to beat Boston 9-6 in the Bronx on Wednesday night for their 17th victory in 18 games. It's so much fun to be a part of these games, honestly.
Just too many eighth-inning walks. And the Yankees might have more offensive issues than the Red Sox. The Red Sox still want him to enter in the middle of an inning with runners on base as well as pitch back-to-back days before they activate him from the DL.
The leverage was never going to be higher than it was in that moment. He doesn't throw hard but has excellent control and keeps getting outs.
Tanaka scattered a season-worst eight hits, including a go-ahead two-run homer to Mitch Moreland in the second and a solo shot to Andrew Benintendi in the fifth, while striking out three and walking two.
Andujar grounded out to second base, advancing Walker to third with one out. "He got good wood to it".
"I wouldn't say it's inevitable", Gardner said of the team's late-inning heroics.
"I fell behind all three hitters which obviously isn't ideal in that situation", Barnes said.
Next time, regardless of whether it's in the eighth inning or the ninth inning or the 16th inning, he'll just have to make a better pitch. The fastball, maybe was not as up as I would have liked to. He put a good swing on it. Whatever the option ends up being, Boston does need to try and find a stable way to get to Kimbrel and give him a clean ninth inning. So in that situation, the pitches to him were kind of created to (be) executed in that fashion. The southpaw owns a 5.29 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 39/13 K/BB ratio over 32 1/3 innings this year, and he'll look to improve on those numbers tonight.
