The Cubs-Pirates outcome hangs on the balance of a review call. Did Javier Baez sneak his hand in there? Crowd think so. Of course.

Wallace Matthews ESPN Staff Writer 

The Yankees, down 8-1 after 7 innings, fought back to bring the tying run to the plate in each of the last two innings, but PH Mark Teixeira grounded out to end the right hand Starlin Castro, who barely missed a three-run HR in the 8th, struck out to end the game with two men on. The Yankees lose, 8-5, to the Royals and more importantly, lose a chance to make up a game on three of the teams they were chasing in the AL wild card race.

The Cubs' Jorge Soler goes opposite field off Pirates closer Tony Watson and we are tied at 6.

Travis Shaw interrupted his second-half slump by getting three hits Monday night. But the biggest reason the slumping Red Sox third baseman likely will be in the lineup Tuesday night is that the Rays are starting another right-handed pitcher. Shaw has been sitting against lefties after playing every day for much of the season. "It's hard. You feel like you've got to get a hit to get back in the lineup the next day," Shaw said. "I've got to try to stop pressing."
