Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

Gary Sanchez homers -- again -- and the theme from "The Natural" plays at Yankee Stadium, complete with the flickering of the lights. Roy Hobbs has nothing on Sanchez, who ties Wally Berger (1930) for fastest ever to reach 20 homers (53 games).

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

Rookie Gary Sanchez doing Gary Sanchez things again. He just took David Price deep for a two-run homer in the first to give the Yankees a 2-0 lead over the Red Sox. It was Sanchez's 20th homer of the season in 185 at-bats.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

In David Ortiz's first at-bat in his last series at Yankee Stadium, he recieved a mixed reaction. It may have been that the Red Sox fans in attendance cheered, while the Yankee fans did not. He flew out to center to end the inning.

Is it right for Yankees to honor Ortiz? (1:48)

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

David Ortiz: "My body is counting the days" until retirement. Was asked if he would consider playing for Dominican Republic in the World Baseball Classic, but said he would need to be playing in order to be in shape for that tournament."

Drew Pomeranz won't pitch Thursday, as scheduled, but "he's not shut down," according to Red Sox manager John Farrell. If/when he pitches again, it'll be out of bullpen. Pomeranz has exceeded career-high in innings, experienced soreness after five-inning start last weekend at Tampa Bay. Henry Owens will start in his place.

With both Jimmy Garoppolo and Jacoby Brissett present at Tuesday's practice, and the Patriots not brining in another quarterback, it is an indication that the team feels good that either Garoppolo and/or Brissett will be available Sunday against the Bills.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

Yankees second baseman Starlin Castro is back in the Yankee lineup after being out more than a week with a hamstring injury. The Yankees will try to avoid being eliminated tonight against the Red Sox.
