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.

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."

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.

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."

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.

ESPN Stats and Information  

The Dodgers beat the Tigers 3-0 on Saturday to improve to 87-34 this season. Only two teams have gotten to 87 wins faster in the expansion era (since 1961) - the 1998 Yankees and 2001 Mariners. The Mariners tied the major-league record with 116 wins that season.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Red Sox starter Chris Sale needs nine strikeouts Saturday night against the Yankees, in what will be his 25th game of 2017, to reach 250 strikeouts this season. Two pitchers in major league history have had 250 strikeouts in 25 or fewer games: Randy Johnson in 1997 (25), 1999 (24), 2000 (25) and 2001 (23), and Pedro Martínez in 2000 (25).

The only thing that changes for the Dodgers from day to day is how they win, not whether they win. On Saturday, it was a 3-0 whitewashing of the Tigers. Hyun-Jin Ryu threw five scoreless innings and three relievers tacked on four more. In his first game for LA, Curtis Granderson went 0 for 4 but reached on an error and scored the game's first run. The Dodgers have won six straight, 21 of 24 and 52 of 61. Now at 53 games over .500, it's getting kind of ridiculous.
