Sanchez homers twice, Tanaka sharp as Yanks rout Tigers 13-4

Gary Sanchez hit two home runs -- including a first-inning drive estimated at nearly 500 feet -- and Masahiro Tanaka pitched seven tidy innings in his return from the disabled list to lead the New York Yankees to a 13-4 victory over the Detroit Tigers...

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

Masahiro Tanaka was pretty good in his return from the DL. Tanaka, who had inflammation in his shoulder, went seven innings, allowing three runs on six hits. He struck out four and walked none. He was given a seven-run lead before the bottom of the third.

Hicks adds to Yanks' rout with homer (0:15)

ESPN Stats and Information  

Gary Sánchez hit a 493-foot home run against the Tigers tonight. That's 2 feet shy of the longest HR in the majors this season, a 495-foot shot hit by his Yankees teammate, Aaron Judge on June 11 against the Orioles.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

The streak is over. Aaron Judge's strikeout streak has come to an end. Judge had K'd in a major league record 37 games, but didn't on Tuesday night. He went 1-for-1 with three walks before being lifted as the Yanks were blowing out the Tigers.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

The Yankees' Gary Sanchez's first inning two-run shot was the second longest in baseball this year, according to StatCast. Sanchez' shot went 493-feet. Aaron Judge hit one earlier in the season that was estimated at 495-feet.

Like all MLB teams, the Yankees will wear alternative jerseys this weekend, meaning they will have names on their backs and no pinstripes. Commissioner Rob Manfred, who grew up a Yankee fan, said, "Modern civilization is going to probably survive."

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

Masahiro Tanaka is not only trying to help pitch the Yankees into the playoffs, he is trying to make his opt-out decision difficult. Tanaka will start tonight after the Yankees took him off the DL following his recovery from inflammation in his right shoulder. At the end of the season, he can opt out of the final three years and $68 million of his contract. Right now, it is hard to see him doing that with an 8-10 record and a 4.92 ERA.

In just a little while, Rory McIlroy is gonna make more contact with a ball than Aaron Judge has in a while! That's not really fair. McIlroy will be hitting a golf balls along with a patient from St. Jude Children's Hospital at multiple targets from the 200 level at Yankee Stadium onto the field.

Red Sox beat Yankees 5-1, move five up in AL East

Jackie Bradley Jr. tripled in two runs and singled in another, and Rick Porcello pitched six innings of a combined three-hitter to help the AL East-leading Red Sox beat New York 5-1 on Sunday and extend their lead over the Yankees to five games.

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

Red Sox 5, Yankees 1: Two out of three ain't bad. It's also exactly what the Sox needed. For the second weekend in a row, the Red Sox managed to keep the second-place Yankees at arm's length by winning two of three games. Jackie Bradley Jr. drove in three runs, including a tone-setting two-run triple in the second inning against Yankees starter Sonny Gray. Rick Porcello tossed six solid innings for his fourth consecutive win.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Aaron Judge went hitless Sunday, striking out in the eighth inning to match Bill Stoneman's MLB record with strikeouts in 37 straight games. Judge has struck out in all 15 games he has played against the Red Sox this season; he is hitting .155 and has only one home run against Boston.

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

Aaron Judge extends his newly-minted MLB single-season strikeout record to 37 consecutive games with at least one strikeout.

Aroldis Chapman comes in to pitch in the 6th inning for the first time since September 23rd, 2011.

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

Now that Aaron Hicks is playing every day, it can be said that every AL East team has a superb defensive center fielder. Feel free to rank them: Jackie Bradley Jr. (Red Sox), Hicks (Yankees), Adam Jones (Orioles), Kevin Pillar (Blue Jays) and, when healthy, Kevin Kiermaier (Rays).

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

Joe Girardi isn't considering moving Aaron Judge out of No. 3 spot in lineup. "He's going to stay there," Girardi said. "He's still dangerous. He's still getting on at a pretty high clip." Judge is 0-for-3 today, 1-for-11 in this series and 9-for-57 this season vs. Red Sox. He hasn't homered in 70 consecutive plate appearances vs. Boston.

Defensive outfield tiers: Yankees among the best

The Yankees have relied on balance at all three positions to propel them to the top tier. Getting Aaron Hicks back from the disabled list is plus, as he has saved nine runs in center this season.
