The main reason to keep Chapman away from the mound in Boston, except maybe en route to a blowout victory, is that he just hasn't pitched well against the hated Red Sox this season.
NOTES: Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia will be out longer than the minimum 10 days in his second straight stint on the disabled list because of his balky left knee. I heard some pretty interesting things out in the bullpen last time warming up.
The Red Sox have dealt with a couple of racial episodes at Fenway this season. The Red Sox scored five runs in his four losses.
Red Sox fan Jordan Leandre, who survived a rare bone cancer as a child and has thrown the first pitch at Fenway park a number of times, was given the honour - and it was certainly a ballsy effort.
Boston's current run has widened its lead atop the AL East to four games over the second-place Yankees, and moved them to within 4.5 games of the Houston Astros for the best record in the American League.
Bradley, hitting.214 with a.581 OPS in that span, made the first out to start the fifth inning, but got another chance to hit later in the inning and knocked in a run with an RBI single.
We'll come out strong and beat India, says Sri Lanka's Tharanga
Shikhar Dhawan (13th) and newly-appointed India vice-captain Rohit Sharma (14th) are the other Indians who are in the top-15. Tharanga, 32, has urged fans to be patient, insisting the "rough patch" will pass for the 50-over 1996 World Cup winners.
More down than up at the moment, a few games less than.500 baseball this month, the Yankees were able to capitalize on their two games against the Mets Monday and Tuesday at Yankee Stadium. He allowed three runs all on solo homers by Red Sox rookies.
Now, the rivalry is renewed. Nunez came over from the San Francisco Giants in a July trade. We aren't a big home run hitting team but we have some guys who hit home runs. "It was a lot of fun tonight and I definitely hope we can continue it". Four more Yankee-Sox games are on their schedule, August 31 and September 1 through September 3, all in the Bronx. In his 121.0 innings and 7-6 record this year, Montgomery has a 3.94 ERA with 115 Ks.
The Red Sox turned their triple play with relative ease.
The change will no doubt spark controversy among Red Sox fans.
Betts is 1-for-6 (.167). A baseball tradition. Nowadays, you pretty much never see a ceremonial first pitch unless you are watching the game live or something goes pretty wrong.
Stephen Piscotty, OF: He smacked another homer for the Memphis Redbirds Wednesday, his fourth in his last six games.
