Aroldis Chapman's Blown Save Tore This Yankees Fan's Heart Into Pieces

  • Rafael Devers Sets MLB Record with Game-Tying Home Run off Aroldis Chapman

Chapman's white-knuckle outing to seal the win also gives us our Obscure Yankeemetric of the Series: He's the first Yankee ever to get a save despite walking at least three batters and allowing a run, while pitching no more than one inning. "I've seen 100, but never 103".

That ended his night as he walked off to a chorus of boos, but his replacement Tommy Kahnle didn't fare much better, walking Mookie Betts before giving up the game-winning single to another Red Sox rookie, Andrew Benintendi, who's been loving life at Yankee Stadium in this series.

The New York Yankees suffered their fourth loss in their last six games on Sunday in a 3-2 defeat to the Boston Red Sox in 10 innings.

As he showed Sunday, Devers, who's hitting.328/.391/.586 in 58 at-bats, is already doing special things at a young age - and he's just getting started.

Chapman has a 3.48 ERA with 15 saves and 48 strikeouts in 33.2 innings in 36 appearances this season. "He doesn't fear the moment".

NY was leading Boston 2-1 Sunday night and things were looking good for Yankees fans.

He is then returned to the rigging he jumped from and pulled away by crew members to safety. The accident happened while filming scenes for the movie in London.

"These are things you nearly come to expect out of him", Sale said. Devers blasted a 103 miles per hour fastball 423 feet to the opposite field for the game-tying homer. "When you hear "blown save" it sounds like it's 20 in the ninth inning", Girardi said.

Eduardo Nunez has been sensational at the plate since being acquired by the Red Sox before the trade deadline, but he hasn't been flawless. We're just grinding every day. It just looks like the Red Sox are better than the Yankees are right now. The score was tied at 1 at the time and Montgomery was cruising, but Girardi wanted to go to his deep bullpen. Devers was in High-A Salem, in the Carolina League, and was batting.190 on May 16.

"I'm just focused on the hitters", Montgomery said.

The Red Sox had the American League's top ace on the mound.

"It's the same baseball for me", he said.

So yeah, the stats remain on Sale's side for now while there is plenty of time left until Major League Baseball announces the victor come November.

WPAFB releases statement about Russian Jet landing at the base
On the Russian territory, a joint mission under the Open Skies Treaty was conducted jointly by the United Kingdom and Norway. The plane then appeared over Dayton, Ohio near Wright-Patterson Air Base, and back over Washington , D.C. and Philadelphia.

Devers still hasn't gotten over the fact that he's accomplished his dream by making the major leagues, and still thinks it's cool that he gets to play with and against veteran players he once watched on TV.

That said, what's really next for Boston is to just keep their collective foot on the gas pedal.

And those bad days will come. Rookie Aaron Judge has been in a slump lately but managed to record a stolen base in tonight's game.

He never threw a pitch for Scranton, though.

- The home run came in the ninth inning, with the Red Sox down by one, thus tying the game.
