Noah Syndergaard reacts to allowing one run in six innings Tuesday in his return from strep throat. His next start will be either the wild-card game or, if the Mets need it, the final day of the regular season.

David Ortiz: "I went 0-for-5 today, so I don't got s--- to talk about." How about going 0-for-5 in opener of his final series at Yankee Stadium? "That ain't fun."

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

When David Ortiz strolled to the plate, representing the go-ahead run with two outs in the ninth, Yankees manager Joe Girardi thought, "I was like, 'What are the chances he is coming up in this situation. It is kind of the way fate had it tonight." Ortiz struck out against Tyler Clippard to end the game, preventing the Red Sox from clinching the AL East.

The Marlins drop a 12-1 decision to the Mets. They'll be eliminated from postseason play if the Giants win tonight. But they still have a chance to finish above .500 for the first time since 2009 if they can win three or their last four games.

Surprise, surprise. Juan Lagares can swing a bat. Lagares delivered a ninth-inning sacrifice fly in a rout of the Marlins. Lagares had entered as a defensive replacement. It was his first time swinging in a major league game since undergoing surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left thumb on Aug. 1. Lagares had been activated from the DL as a defensive replacement and pinch runner. His only other batting opportunity since returning resulted in a sacrifice bunt.

Hold the celebration. No champagne tonight. Red Sox's winning streak ends at 11 games, as David Price gives up three homers and David Ortiz strikes out with two runners on base to end a 6-4 Yankees victory. Boston's magic number to clinch AL East remains frozen at 1.

Yankee Stadium proposal nearly goes wrong

Fans at the Red Sox-Yankees game frantically looked for, and eventually found, the engagement ring that was dropped and momentarily lost by a man proposing to his girlfriend.
