Yankees 3, Red Sox 0: Chris Sale dominates again, and again, Chris Sale has nothing to show for it. Red Sox get shut out on 97 pitches by Masahiro Tanaka and have now scored a grand total of four runs in Sale's 37 2/3 innings over five starts. Sale has a 1.19 ERA and 52 strikeouts, including four consecutive starts of at least 10 Ks, but the Red Sox are only 3-2 in his starts.

The Yankees-Red Sox game took two hours and 21 minutes. That is not a typo.

That is what an ace performance looks like. Masahiro Tanka pitched a shutout to outduel Chris Sale, giving the Yankees a 3-0 win over the Red Sox. The Yankees took both games of this rain-shortened two-game series. They are 13-7, while the team Brian Cashman dubbed the "Golden State Warriors of baseball," the Red Sox, are 11-10.

Imagine if Bryce Harper got to play all his home games at Coors Field. He homered -- minus batting gloves -- as part of an 11-run seventh inning and has gone 7-for-13 with three walks in the series. The Nats lost the series opener when Harper didn't start, but have now scored 42 runs the past three days. With two innings still to go in this one.
