Gardner drives Yankees to win over Red Sox

Mitch Moreland

Perhaps Tyler Thornburg can help fix it. As for their rotation, anyone not named Chris Sale or Rick Porcello is having issues with not allowing runs. The 2012 AL Cy Young Award victor signed a $217 million, seven-year contract with the Red Sox in December 2015 but has been slowed by injuries the past two years.

Only seven weeks into the season, we're exhausting our supply of superlatives for these Yankees, a sizzling club that needed just 19 days to wipe out a 7 1⁄2-game deficit and vault over the Red Sox into the top spot in the AL East.

The Boston Red Sox will square off against their divisional rival New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium.

Red Sox manager Alex Cora said the team had planned to be aggressive with Kimbrel because he hadn't pitched since Saturday.

Barnes and Kimbrel gave up four runs on three hits and one walk.

For the second night in a row, the Yankees to escaped with a late-inning win, 9-6, after the Red Sox bullpen fell apart.

While the famous Yankees-Red Sox rivalry is entertaining, that's not what's making their match-ups so good this season.

It was the first time Boston and NY met with the majors' two best records since 2002, per the Elias Sports Bureau. It's a tough go right there, so it's been fun."Andrew Benintendi trimmed the Red Sox's deficit to a run with a fifth-inning solo shot off Tanaka, marking Benintendi's sixth homer in 15 career games at Yankee Stadium". 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".

But he has hit 97 miles per hour and shown "phenomenal" secondary pitches.

The leverage was never going to be higher than it was in that moment. And is seems every time Moreland's number gets called, he's furthering the case to keep his bat in the lineup at all costs. The righty averaged 2.1 walks per nine innings at Triple-A Pawtucket past year. 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.

Can Barnes be trusted in these type of high-pressure games on the road? It's that both teams are at their best, simultaneously, for the first time in years.

PHILLIES 11, GIANTS 3 Carlos Santana had three hits and five RBI, Nick Pivetta struck out seven in five scoreless innings and host Philadelphia beat San Francisco.

Carson Smith (3.86 ERA, 1.54 WHIP) hasn't been as sharp as expected either. 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.

Andujar grounded out to second base, advancing Walker to third with one out.

Cora did not think video games had brought on the syndrome, but he said Fortnite may be discussed when he sits down with Price on Thursday to lay out a recovery plan. So give credit to Walker. "He got good wood to it". Barnes then walked No. 9 hitter Gleyber Torres, creating a rather tense situation and forcing Cora to make a move. "Tonight, I was happy to see him break through". He took it. Saw a 3-1 breaking ball and he took it like a veteran.
