This is one of the hats the Pirates will be wearing for tonight's MLB Little League Classic in Williamsport. A bright-yellow Bucco.

So you're wondering what's up with this picture of an aircraft hanger. Later this morning, the Pirates and Cardinals will arrive here ahead of their Sunday night baseball game in Williamsport, PA ... home of the Little League World Series.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Aaron Judge on Saturday had his 13th three-strikeout game of the season, tied with Curtis Granderson in 2012 for the most in a season by a Yankees player (batters' strikeouts have been official in the American League since the start of 1913). Judge fell to 0-for-10 with eight strikeouts against Chris Sale, his most at-bats without a hit against any pitcher.

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

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."

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

Here's what Aroldis Chapman told me about his demotion from the Yankees closer role: "I left the manager no other option if I'm not doing my job and causing my team to lose games. But I'll be working hard to figure this out."

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."

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

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.

Incluido el de esta noche, "Carita" ha jugado 5 partidos contra los Yankees, yéndose de 18-8 con 3 cuadrangulares y 6 carreras remolcadas.

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

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.

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

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."

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

Aaron Judge sets a new MLB single-season strikeout record with 36 consecutive games with at least one strikeout.

ESPN Stats and Information  

The Nationals' Stephen Strasburg, who was on the disabled list with nerve impingement in his elbow, is scheduled to make his first appearance since July 23 on Saturday. He is 2-0 with a 2.77 ERA in two starts at Petco Park.

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

Chris Sale, who entered with 1.18 ERA in 13 career games vs. Yankees, gives up 3-run homer to Tyler Austin in the second inning. Yankees lead 3-0 behind CC Sabathia, making his return from disabled list after missing two starts with knee injury.
