Indians 5, Red Sox 4: Brandon Guyer scored from second base on a bunt, and the Indians walked off the Red Sox in the opener of a four-game series. Boston coughed up a one-run lead in the eighth inning when Cleveland rallied to tie the game. Guyer opened the ninth with a double. Roberto Perez dropped down a bunt that was fielded by first baseman Brock Holt, who hesitated before throwing wide of third base, enabling Guyer to score.

Seven pitches into the seventh inning, Andrew Miller is finished. Leaving the game with an apparent injury after brief meeting with Indians manager Terry Francona and a trainer. Miller waited for a while before the inning began while umpire Alan Porter suited up to take over behind the plate, then walked Mookie Betts before going to a 1-0 count on Andrew Benintendi. No clear indication of nature of injury.

Red Sox 5, Yankees 1: Two out of three ain't bad. It's also exactly what the Sox needed. For the second weekend in a row, the Red Sox managed to keep the second-place Yankees at arm's length by winning two of three games. Jackie Bradley Jr. drove in three runs, including a tone-setting two-run triple in the second inning against Yankees starter Sonny Gray. Rick Porcello tossed six solid innings for his fourth consecutive win.

Aroldis Chapman comes in to pitch in the 6th inning for the first time since September 23rd, 2011.

Now that Aaron Hicks is playing every day, it can be said that every AL East team has a superb defensive center fielder. Feel free to rank them: Jackie Bradley Jr. (Red Sox), Hicks (Yankees), Adam Jones (Orioles), Kevin Pillar (Blue Jays) and, when healthy, Kevin Kiermaier (Rays).

Joe Girardi isn't considering moving Aaron Judge out of No. 3 spot in lineup. "He's going to stay there," Girardi said. "He's still dangerous. He's still getting on at a pretty high clip." Judge is 0-for-3 today, 1-for-11 in this series and 9-for-57 this season vs. Red Sox. He hasn't homered in 70 consecutive plate appearances vs. Boston.

Drew Pomeranz will throw a bullpen session Monday but is in line to make his scheduled start Wednesday night in Cleveland. Pomeranz left Friday night's game in the fourth inning because of back spasms. He has responded favorably to treatment over the past few days.

Chris Sale: "Any time I give up two homers in a game it's not going to work out. I've got to be better than that." On the pitches that were hit by Tyler Austin and Todd Frazier: "One was a fastball, one was a slider, and I've never seen a good pitch go over the fence."

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

CC Sabathia: "It's a big win for us and it's kind of a big loss for them because they need to win the games (Chris Sale) is out there."

Yankees 4, Red Sox 3: So much for Chris Sale being a Yankee slayer. One night after a crushing loss, the Yanks stared down the Red Sox ace and beat him. Tyler Austin and Todd Frazier homered, CC Sabathia came off the disabled list to toss six solid innings, and New York's bullpen held on for the win. The Red Sox put the tying run on base in the ninth inning, but it was erased when pinch-runner Brock Holt was caught stealing second.

Including tonight, "Carita" (Rafael Devers) has played 5 games against the Yankees, going 8-for-18 (.444) with 3 home runs and 6 RBI.

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

According to Elias, Rafael Devers is the first player ever with as many as eight home runs in his first 20 major-league games before turning 21.

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

Rafael Devers has homered in three straight games vs. Yankees. Dare we say, that's David Ortiz-esque.

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

Todd Frazier has had an eventful night against friend and ex-teammate Chris Sale. Hit by a pitch on the left calf in the second inning, strikeout in the fourth and now a solo homer in the sixth. 4-2, Yankees. Only the fifth time in 25 starts that Sale has allowed more than three earned runs.

Here's what Mets minor-league manager Luis Rojas told me about Rafael Devers' baserunning after managing him in winter ball: "You see his body and he might not look very athletic, like a guy who's going to steal 10 bases in a season or even five. But he moves a lot better than what you think."
