And yet, the Yankees were in very bad shape after six innings, they who still had not hit a ball in a safe place. Giancarlo Stanton, the second batter in the seventh inning, ended the bad streak by kicking Jose Urquidy’s offering out of bounds, closing the lead to 3-1.

DJ LeMahieu then forced the extra innings, also with a long ball, this time for two runs.

It was with another homer that the crowd favorites ended the match, in 10e sleeve. Aaron Judge then took advantage of the presence of two teammates on the trails to close the match.

Reliever Seth Martinez (0-1), victim of Judge’s blow, saw the loss add to his record. For his part, Michael King (5-1), who arrived in relief in 10e round, added a win to his record.

Nick Fortes settles Mets case

In Miami, Marlins catcher Nick Fortes ended the game against the New York Mets by sending a ball out of bounds in the ninth inning.

The visitors had already recorded two of the necessary three outs and were trying to force the extra innings. Fortes, however, left no room for debate, solidly hitting the offering of pitcher Adam Ottavino (2-2), who came in relief for the ninth inning.

Miguel Rojas, with a solo homer, and Garrett Cooper, with a sacrifice fly, drove in the other points for the winners, at the expense of Mets starting pitcher David Peterson.

Tanner Scott (3-2), also coming in relief in the ninth inning, got the win for the Marlins.

The Red Sox complete the sweep

In Cleveland, the Boston Red Sox didn’t have too much trouble passing the broom against the Guardians, who they defeated 8-3 in the last game of the series.

In addition to enjoying a comfortable lead, the visitors’ starting pitcher, Rich Hill (4-4), muzzled the opposing hitters, he who passed five opponents in the mitt. He was finally retired after six innings, having allowed only one run on five hits and four walks.

Offensively, Trevor Story and JD Martinez drove in two runs apiece in the win.
