Yankees improve to 14-0-1 in their last 15 home series
It’s no secret that the Yankees’ high-powered offense has relied on the long ball. They are fifth in the Majors with 162 home runs — their highest total through 97 games in club history — and they have homered in all but 14 games this season, posting a 5-9 record in them. Saturday marked the 15th time the ball didn’t... more

Lockett earns condiment shower after 1st win for Mets
In Pete Alonso’s recollection, the Mets’ postgame fete of Walker Lockett at Oracle Park included “beer, shaving cream, mayonnaise, ketchup, maybe some baby powder.” Alonso would know.

Yankees now 8 games up in AL East after doubleheader sweep of Tampa

Yankees now 8 games up in AL East after doubleheader sweep of Tampa
It is possible, as Aaron Judge suggested earlier this week, that the Yankees would not be in first place if not for Gio Urshela’s presence. The hot-hitting infielder did his part to help tighten that grip on Thursday. One of the Yankees’ biggest surprises of the season, Urshela slugged his ninth homer as part of a three-RBI performance, helping to... more

Mets complete two game series sweep of Twins

Mets complete two game series sweep of Twins
While the Mets have made it clear they have little interest in trading assets under team control beyond this season, perhaps Dominic Smith is an exception. Smith, a first baseman, is blocked at his natural position by Pete Alonso. Even though he’s acquitted himself just fine to the outfield, the Mets feature a fair bit of depth there heading into... more

Judge HR fuels decisive surge as Yanks top Tampa

Judge HR fuels decisive surge as Yanks top Tampa
  Aaron Judge tracked the flight of his eighth-inning drive as it sailed toward the right-field foul pole, and the collective masses on hand at Yankee Stadium groaned as it arced a few seats wide, just a long strike. Undeterred, the slugger returned to the plate and deposited the next pitch over the wall in right-center field. Judge’s two-out, two-run... more
