Yankees Place Sabathia On DL, Recall Montgomery

Break away from the pack: Five reasons the Red Sox should win the AL East

Montgomery is 7-6 with a 4.05 ERA in 21 starts for NY since making his major league debut this season. Cano told Nunez, who laughed as he recounted the story near his locker Friday.

Boston appeared to be rallying back in the 9th with Yankees closer, Arodlis Chapman struggling to find the strike zone.

Adam Warren took over with a runner on first base and two outs, and stopped the bleeding there. Each finished third once in that span, Boston in 2006 and the Yankees in '08. Four innings later, Andrew Benintendi provided cushion with a line-drive home run to the second deck in right field off Garcia, pushing Boston's advantage to 3-0.

Since then, both teams have had only intermittent success and they haven't finished first and second in either configuration.

Thankfully for the Red Sox, they were prepared. "If he's safe right there, I think the next play is a sac fly and the game is tied, right?"

After retiring the first seven Red Sox, Severino walked Christian Vazquez and Jackie Bradley Jr., the eighth- and ninth-place hitters, respectively, in the third with a 2-0 lead provided by Sanchez's home run in the first.

The Yankees (60-53) enters Friday's series opener against the American League East-leading Red Sox trailing Boston by 4 1/2 games. The former Cy Young Award victor will miss Sunday's scheduled start against the Boston Red Sox. John Farrell had suggested that Pedroia might play the field on Wednesday, but instead, Pedroia found himself on the bench during the Red Sox' series finale against the Tampa Bay Rays. The Yankees were the more active of the pair at this year's trade deadline. However, the ball spilled out of Frazier's glove and the bases were loaded.

Bran ( Isaac Hempstead Wright ) finally returned to Winterfell , and he has been drastically changed by his recent experiences. Cersei was convinced that Tyrion was behind the murder and their father, Tywin Lannister, oversaw his trial and sentencing.

Boston leads the AL with a 3.63 team ERA and watched its staff dominate of late, with three or fewer runs allowed in each of the last five games. Through May 11, he was hitting.248 with no home runs.

After so much time away from the Yankees, Nunez said, returning in a Red Sox uniform held no special meaning. The Yankees couldn't touch Rodriguez all night.

Judge's numbers from the All-Star break through Thursday's latest loss in Toronto - 15-for-87 (.172) with 40 strikeouts and just five home runs, after belting 30 in an eye-popping and awe-inspiring first half -are almost identical to those he'd posted in a rough debut at the end of last season. It remains weird that the Sox stood pat with the underwhelming Mitch Moreland at first base instead of adding Yonder Alonso or Lucas Duda, neither of whom would have cost much in trade. His peripherals are also solid, as he owns a 3.95 FIP.

Severino will not be facing Sale or Porcello this time.

Severino had been pitching brilliantly as he continued to cement his status as the ace of the Yankees' rotation.

After a 3-0 lead in the 8th inning it appeared as though the Boston Red Sox were heading for their 9th straight victory to continue the win streak and build upon their first place lead over the Yankees in NY.
