Out of lineup for Game 2

Third baseman Pablo Sandoval was a bust for the Boston Red Sox, who designated him for assignment on Friday, but media reports on Saturday indicated that the San Francisco Giants are interested in bringing back their former World Series star. Cooper was batting.366 with 17 home runs and 82 runs batted in in the first half of Triple-A play for the Brewers minor league affiliate, so his MLB debut was a big deal considering his success and the black hole that is the Yankees first base position. He's been lights-out for the Athletics this season, delivering a career-best 2.11 ERA, 1.4 BB/9 and second-best 8.6 SO/9 through 38 1/3 innings.

Holliday was part of Red Sox manager John Farrell's protest in the 11th inning on the odd double play attempt that resulted in Holliday sliding back into first, even though he had already been forced out at second. As a free agent after this season, he could be an adequate addition for the Red Sox, whose top third-base prospect, Rafael Devers, was promoted to Class AAA on Friday.

The bases-loaded walk delivered by Chapman to Andrew Benintendi ending the game was Boston's first walk-off walk since Ted Williams in 1956 and the Red Sox first walk-off win in seventeen years. The under is also 3-0-1 in Porcello's last four home starts against the Yankees and is 4-0-1 in his last five outings versus New York overall.

Doolittle, meanwhile, is due the rest of his $2.6 million salary in 2017 and another $4.35 million in 2018.

Matt Holliday hit a tying home run off Boston closer Craig Kimbrel in the ninth that cleared the Green Monster, and it took 5 hours, 50 minutes and 512 pitches to finish.

No Yankees batter had more than one hit, with Aaron Judge going 0-for-4 with two strikeouts. Wade hasn't dazzled, but he is going to be a bigtime player for the Bombers down the stretch.

"If you can be patient with him - I know that sounds crazy - you have a chance". In the same at-bat, Court hit a soft line drive over the head of Robinson at first.

Queen Letizia of Spain does high street style diplomacy in Topshop
This morning, the royal couple arrived in Britain and were quickly brisked away to meet the Queen and Prince Philip. Residents there have twice voted overwhelmingly to remain with the British rather than return to Spanish control.

That would continue into the night.

Both relievers would represent a significant upgrade for the Nationals, whose relief corps ranks dead last among major league bullpens thanks to a flurry of untimely injuries.

With Frazier essentially being a rental for any contending team that might acquire him, the White Sox most likely won't get a strong return for the veteran third baseman. He reached third on a groundout and tried to score on Deven Marrero's bouncer, but Sabathia by an acrobatic grab and threw out Travis.

The Red Sox had been 43-0 when leading after eight. "It seemed like that was kind of it today". Meanwhile, for Pawtucket, Beeks was also brilliant, hurling six innings of one-run ball, allowing just five hits and punching out six.

Bumgarner missed the last three months with a left shoulder AC sprain sustained in a dirt bike accident on April 20.

Baseball and Central Mass. go way back - to the 1860s.

Inexplicably, neither Larry Rothschild, the Yankees pitching coach or Joe Girardi left the dugout to interrupt Chapman's meltdown.
