Regardless, after Moreland banged a pinch single up the middle to drive in the tying and go-ahead runs, and the Red Sox tacked on two runs in the eighth against embattled Aroldis Chapman, and Addison Reed and Craig Kimbrel combined to record the final eight outs (six by strikeout), well, you could nearly hear the air come out the Yankees' balloon. He came over and told me not to worry about that and we were going to look at video and see what happens.
After flushing a late three-run lead Friday night and swallowing a killer loss, the Yankees rebounded for a one-run victory Saturday evening, which gave them a chance to slice the pennant-race deficit to three lengths on Sunday. Todd Frazier took an 81 miles per hour slider from Chris Sale off left shin in second inning.
The Red Sox offense was kept quiet by CC Sabathia and the Yankees bullpen.
Red Sox starter Drew Pomeranz left Friday night's game against the New York Yankees with back spasms, the team announced. Brandon Workman and Addison Reed threw scoreless innings and, after Tommy Kahnle gave up two runs in the eighth to make it a non-save situation, All-Star closer Craig Kimbrel worked a flawless ninth.
The rookie sensation went yard again on Saturday night against the New York Yankees, his eighth home in just his 20th Major League game.
"It was pretty special to give us an early lead like that", Austin said.

While respecting the foundation's philanthropic work, Henry said he'd like to move forward and have the street named after David Ortiz.

By beating Sale, the Yankees trimmed the margin back to four games.
"To get that win and kind of separate ourselves a little bit more and start the series off on the right note, yeah, it's a big one", Moreland said.
Sale is slated to pitch in that series, too.
And that's exactly what the Yankees hope Gray can be for them.
"That's the fun part of baseball, that cat and mouse, the back and forth", Sale said.
