Sanchez slugs way to rare Yankees feat
Gary Sanchez hit two home runs, his 24th and 25th of the season, in the Yankees' win over the Tigers on Tuesday. He's the first player to hit 25 homers for the Yankees in a season before turning 25 years old since Don Mattingly blasted 35 home runs as a 24-year-old in 1985. (Elias Sports Bureau)
Cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie played safety on Monday night, a move that coach Ben McAdoo said was made to create more depth at the position.
Tuesday's longest home runs
Gary Sanchez outpaced the competition by nearly 40 feet, as his 493-foot blast -- his first of two homers on the day -- slots in behind Aaron Judge's 495-footer for the longest home runs this season. Yangervis Solarte's 455-footer highlights a career-high six-RBI night, while the homers by Nick Williams and Marcell Ozuna were only two of 14 hit by the Phillies and Marlins between both ends of their doubleheader.
The hit that injured Odell Beckham Jr. on Monday night was perfectly legal, but some Giants thought it was the wrong play to make in the preseason.
In his first action of the summer, Giants quarterback Eli Manning looked ready for the regular season. A look at the best and worst from Monday.
There is no NFL rule that prevents a defender from hitting a receiver's leg -- above or below the knee -- in an attempt to tackle him.
Monday's solar eclipse drew everyone's attention, including Odell Beckham Jr., who had some fun with fans during the rare event.
The Giants' second preseason game was full of red flags, from injuries to their top two receivers to a lackluster offensive performance vs. Cleveland.
More prominent figures had a bump in playing time in Week 2 of the preaseason, but that shift didn't generate a proportionate rise in injuries.
Left tackle Ereck Flowers will match up against No. 1 overall pick Myles Garrett. If Flowers can't hang with him, it'll be time to sound the alarm.
All downhill for Judge since break
Aaron Judge struck out in his 36th consecutive game Saturday, setting a record for the longest such streak in a single season in MLB history, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. His second half batting average is worse than the .179 mark that haunted him in his 2016 debut season.
Devers becoming thorn in Yankees' side
Red Sox rookie Rafael Devers homered again against the rival Yankees on Saturday. He's the first player to go deep in three straight games against the Yankees before turning 21 years old since Babe Ruth in 1915.
No ignoring Chapman's struggles
Aroldis Chapman is out as the Yankees' closer, and with good reason. The left-hander is in the midst of his worst season by numerous measures.
Sabathia continues Red Sox domination
With Saturday's win, CC Sabathia is now 3-0 with a 0.90 ERA in three starts against Boston this season. Since earned runs became official in the AL in 1913, four other Yankees pitchers have won their first three starts against the Red Sox in a season with a sub-1.00 ERA: Lefty Gomez in 1934 (0.33), Hank Borowy in 1945 (0.35), Whitey Ford in 1956 (0.67) and Scott Sanderson in 1991 (0.43), the Elias Sports Bureau notes.
Saturday's longest home runs
Rougned Odor teed off twice against the White Sox, with his second blast reaching the upper deck in right field at Globe Life Park. A pair of rookies flexed their muscles in Saturday's Red Sox-Yankees tilt while Mike Trout's multihomer game in Baltimore gave him six seasons with at least 25 home runs, tying Tim Salmon's Angels record.
Eli Manning aims to keep the offense on the same page -- and not take any big hits -- on Monday night against the Browns.
Eli Manning will see more action Monday night against the Browns, with coach Ben McAdoo saying he wants to give the QB "a good chunk of playing time."
With training camp in the rearview and the regular season drawing ever closer, we look at which Giants players have stood out so far this summer.
Get the brooms out
This was only the third time that the Subway Series ended in a sweep since interleague play began 20 years ago. The Yankees have been on the winning end of the stick twice.
Judging by the struggles
Yankees RF Aaron Judge got off to a red-hot start to his rookie season, but the Red Sox are one team that has consistently given him trouble. His stats have increasingly declined when facing off against Boston this year.
The offensive coordinator has watched the line struggle, last season and in the preseason. But he sees potential for improvement.
