Rookie Gary Sanchez doing Gary Sanchez things again. He just took David Price deep for a two-run homer in the first to give the Yankees a 2-0 lead over the Red Sox. It was Sanchez's 20th homer of the season in 185 at-bats.

To say Derrick Rose is looking forward to pushing the pace with Kristaps Porzingis on the floor is an understatement. "I'm going to make him run.... He's young. He's 21. Yeah, man. KP, he's going to have to run," Rose said. A big theme so far for the Knicks has been to push the pace.

Derrick Rose said he feels 'like a rookie' right now as he gets used to new surroundings in NY. "Just trying to learn everybody," he said. The Knicks hope Rose is a quick study. Management and coaches have said it takes some time to learn the triangle offense, parts of which Jeff Hornacek will run.

In David Ortiz's first at-bat in his last series at Yankee Stadium, he recieved a mixed reaction. It may have been that the Red Sox fans in attendance cheered, while the Yankee fans did not. He flew out to center to end the inning.

Derrick Rose said he didn't mean to slight Chicago when he said recently that he gets more 'love' in NY than CHI: "In Chicago, I think they just got used to seeing me.... That's no knock against them. I can't get mad at them.... All I can do is just work on my game & hope that they continue to look."

Mets officials have suggested that Steven Matz's mechanics were being closely monitored after the elbow issue was diagnosed, and he did not alter his motion and trigger a shoulder problem. Still, a link cannot be completely discounted.

WR Brandon Marshall presented a $100,000 check on behalf of the Jets and the NYC Department of Education to the city's Public School Athletic League. The donation will pay for the reconditioning of helmets and the formation of a new football program at a Manhattan HS. Marshall announced the launching of "Project Prevent" -- mental training for young athletes through his foundation, Project 375, and Lucid, a mental training and mindfulness app.

The Yankees' Masahiro Tanaka could still make his final start of the year this weekend against the Orioles. Tanaka missed his last start because of slight tightness in his forearm, closer to his wrist. The Yankees' team doctor, Chris Ahmad, cleared Tanaka to play catch on Tuesday, which he did successfully. On Wednesday, Tanaka will throw long toss. Even if the Yankees are eliminated, Tanaka would like to make his final start. He currently leads the American League with a 3.07 ERA.

The Timberwolves have hired Scott Roth, who tutored Kristaps Porzingis and Willy Hernangomez in Europe, as a pro scout. Roth, who coached Porzingis and Hernangomez in Spain, is well know and respected overseas. He also coached 11 seasons in the NBA and on four national teams. Seems like a great add to the Timberwolves' Pro Scouting department.
