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).

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.

Through 15 practices and two games, this is the unofficial tally for the Jets' quarterbacks: Christian Hackenberg 365 snaps, Josh McCown 332 and Bryce Petty 227. All things considered, that's about as even as could be expected.

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.

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.

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.

So why did Jets coach Todd Bowles decide to sit Josh McCown? On Thursday, Bowles said McCown "will play" against the Lions. "He needs work." After tonight's game, Bowles said he and his staff decided McCown didn't need the work. "Josh has played in a million preseason games," Bowles said. Clearly, Bowles still was in audition/experimental mode. This really puts the pressure on McCown and the offense to get in sync next week against the Giants, assuming he rests his starters in the finale.
