Red Sox ace Chris Sale reaches another impressive strikeout feat

From the overpowering fastball and the collection of double-digit strikeout games to the unmistakable swagger on the mound, it all looks so familiar. "That residue will not disappear when Yawkey Way is renamed, but it also does not need to diminish the positive impact the Yawkey Trust, funded primarily by the $700 million sale of the team when Henry came aboard, still makes today for multiple worthy causes in Boston and New England".

The rookie sensation went yard again on Saturday night against the New York Yankees, his eighth home in just his 20th Major League game. But Todd Frazier hit a two-run homer in the sixth, then NY scored four in the seventh to take a 6-3 lead.

Particularly when that team - the Red Sox, let's say - loses a game of their lead over their closest and oldest rivals, which is what happened to the Sox last night against the Yankees.

Sale got his first look at the NY part of the Red Sox-Yankees rivalry when he pitched for Boston last Sunday night in the Bronx.

Tyler Austin crashed a three-run homer in his first career at-bat against Sale (14-5) in the second inning and Todd Frazier hit his second homer in as many nights for the Yankees. They have not been held scoreless through five innings since being shut out in Seattle on July 24, which was 21 games ago. Despite having provided scant run support for Sale at times, they are 18-7 in his starts.

And one more note on those home runs: Devers joins George Scott (1966) as the only Red Sox hitters in the last 100 years with as many as eight home runs through their first 20 career games.

"I've always played that way my entire life", said Devers through translator Daveson Perez.

Nunes-Tucker told NBC News that they were having drinks at a patio when her husband said he was going to the bathroom. On Friday she was called to identify his body, though some news outlets still claim Tucker is among the missing.

The record for a player of any age is nine home runs, matched most recently by Trevor Story a year ago, and once upon a time by George Scott, in 1966.

Lost in the bullpen's meltdown was the Yankees' continued poor hitting with runners in scoring position.

Sabathia starts Saturday's game fresh from a stint on the 10-day DL for knee inflammation. That's when Yawkey Way is closed to vehicles and it is an open space for the Red Sox fans as they make their way to the stadium. Holt tried to steal second and was thrown out for the second out of the bottom of ninth.

If you're looking for a relaxing, calm evening, the Red Sox aren't for you. Considering the circumstances, there's no doubt. He said "we would welcome" the name change "in light of the country's current leadership stance with regard to tolerance". Moreland missed badly at two changeups from Kahnle, so the Yankees reliever threw him another. "His breaking pitches are really good".

"I understand the way the climate is around the Red Sox that they would potentially want to do something like that", said Bobby D'Angelo, son of the formerly named Twins souvenir shop's founder Arthur D'Angelo. He struck out nine in seven innings but fell to 0-2 with two no-decisions against the Yankees this season.

The Red Sox led 7-6 after a wild rally in the seventh inning.

Last year, Red Sox star pitcher David Price said he heard racial taunts at Fenway while he was in the bullpen. "It was actually a really good pitch, and I just caught him at the right time. One of those things".
