Judge powers Yankees past Red Sox with late home run

Now, New York's two teams are headed in opposite directions. Bettors are able to gamble on the game's total with odds posted at -105 for over 9 runs and -115 for under 9.

PIRATES 6, WHITE SOX 5 Colin Moran hit a two-run home run that capped a four-run rally against Nate Jones in the ninth inning, leading Pittsburgh over host Chicago and sending the last-place White Sox to their ninth loss in 10 games. It was the first time Stanton had RBIs in consecutive games this season, and he improved to 10 for 19 with seven RBIs against Boston during his first season in pinstripes. They've gained 9.8 units for bettors taking the money line and 4.3 units against the spread (ATS). Torres fielded Sandy Leon's grounder and whipped a throw to Gregorius, who anchored his right foot on the second-base bag and fired off-balance in time to double up the Red Sox catcher. It's that both teams are at their best, simultaneously, for the first time in years. He has yet to face NY this year, but he made two starts against the team in 2017, compiling a 0-1 record with a 4.09 ERA and 11 strikeouts. The big lefty was dominant against Boston a year ago, going 4-0 with a 1.04 ERA in four starts, while Rodriguez was 0-1 with a 4.09 ERA in two outings versus NY.

Carson Smith (3.86 ERA, 1.54 WHIP) hasn't been as sharp as expected either. He took it. Saw a 3-1 breaking ball and he took it like a veteran.

Boston relievers have allowed 20 earned runs in 36 eighth innings this season.

Ramirez crushed a two-run shot into the second deck, his first home run since April 14.

REDS 2, METS 1 (10) Adam Duvall led off the 10th inning with a home run that sent host Cincinnati to a victory over NY.

Betts performed well against lefty pitching last season. Sacrifice flies by Aaron Hicks and Gary Sanchez accounted for the other NY runs. He's now sporting a sterling 1.39 ERA and 23/5 K/BB ratio in 32 1/3 innings across his first six starts. The bullpen has a 3.53 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 12.9 K/9.

Judge Gertner On Eric Schneiderman Resignation, Rudy Guiliani
Cuomo, a fellow Democrat, and other officials, and his almost-as-speedy, almost-grudging acceptance of his political fate. Schneiderman - who had been running for re-election - announced his resignation Monday night.

Gardner's performance Wednesday night shows what an impact player he is for this team, coming through in a clutch situation where the Yankees were down 6-5. The team has hit.248/.355/.465 over its last five matchups and is 5-0 SU during that stretch.

"We knew it was going to be close throughout the entire year and come down to the end of the year", Kimbrel said.

In all, Tanaka allowed a season-high eight hits, walked two and was charged with four runs.

Both starters produced almost identical lines.

Judge added some insurance by hitting one out to center - the third homer Kimbrel has allowed in 16 appearances this season after giving up six in 67 outings previous year. The over has cashed in three of those games, compared to five that have gone under against left-handed starting pitchers. The over's hit in five of those games.

And after a relentless pursuit, the Yanks are in first place with an MLB-best 26-10 record, having won 17 of their past 18. Hopefully I'll come back strong next outing and try to contribute in a bigger way."Video: BOS@NYY: Tanaka K's Moreland to strand a pairMOMENTS THAT MATTEREDHolding the line: Holder picked up his second big league victory as a result of his stellar eighth inning work, relieving Shreve with runners at second and third and one out".
