Following Monday's 4-2 win, Yankees have now gone UNDER the betting total in 13 straight games

Yankees pitcher Sonny Gray, who was on base once Monday for the first time in three years, got chided by teammates for having a slow trot on Aaron Hicks' fifth-inning home run. Aaron Judge joked it was as if Gray thought he hit the homer. As a pitcher, Gray also didn't know the hitters' handshakes, so he kind of messed up the celebration with Hicks at the plate. Said Hicks: "Don't do that. Not on live TV!"

In speaking about how Jonathan Holder got the Yankees out of a key sixth-inning, no-out, first and third jam Monday night, Sonny Gray said: "After he did that, you could feel a jolt go across the bench, and we kind of knew we were going to win this game." The Yankees pulled through with a 4-2 win.

Walt ‘Clyde ‘ Frazier signed a lifetime contract with Puma on the same day the shoe company signed No. 1 overall pick DeAndre Ayton. Frazier, Puma's original endorser, was asked in an interview with ESPN.com about David Fizdale and Kristaps Porzingis: "I like the idea that he's a defensive coach. He seems to be a player's coach – I think guys will like that. That will be a big advantage. The team is going to get better no matter who they get but they have to improve their defense. To me, that's the catapult." On Kristaps Porzingis' potential five-year, $157 million extension, Frazier says the club is ‘in a real quagmire' over the uncertainty regarding Porzingis' health in the wake of his ACL tear. "The Knicks have been burned so often with paying guys and then they don't produce. Will he return to his normal form? It's tough to tell." Assuming his rehab progresses well, Porzingis is expected to be out until at least early December.

Walt ‘Clyde' Frazier on signing a lifetime contract with Puma on Monday: "It's surreal. When I see (Michael) Joran, I see LeBron (James), I see Kobe (Bryant), I was the guy who started it – 1973," said Frazier, who was Puma's original endorser. "No hoopla. No fanfare. Just went there, sat down with the guy and signed the contract. I think the first contract was $5,000 and all the shoes I wanted. In those days, no one was getting paid. I remember the guys on the team teasing me. ‘Oh you think you're famous. You've got your own sneaker.' (laughs). It was a joy to do that. New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, we sold so many shoes. We couldn't keep them in stores." Puma also reportedly signed DeAndre Ayton, Marvin Bagley III and Zhaire Smith to sneaker deals.

Walt ‘Clyde ‘ Frazier signed a lifetime contract with Puma on the same day the shoe company signed No. 1 overall pick DeAndre Ayton. Frazier, Puma's original endorser, was asked in an interview with ESPN.com about second-year guard Frank Ntilikina: "First thing you've got to remember is that he's 19 in a foreign country. I came here at 22 and I was like a deer in headlights. So I can just imagine: this kid is 19 and doing that…..They like him. Obviously a precocious 19 year old. They think he has a tenacious work ethic. He's got to work on his handle. They say because his arms are so long that it's kind of awkward but still he's got to keep the ball lower. The advantage for him is what I had – he knows defense. He's a good defensive player.... He just has to get a little more confident (on the offensive end) and I saw it at times when he started going to the basket (later in the season). I wouldn't give up on him yet. But obviously this is a crucial year for him coming into this season. This is going to be a defining moment for him. His critics have already written him off so if he doesn't perform this year they're going to say, ‘This guy is a bust.' Right now, I have faith in him."

The Yankees announced that they have called up OF Clint Frazier today. In the corresponding move, INF Ronald Torreyes was optioned to Triple-A. Frazier is not the 26th man, it appears. Looks like another pitcher will be coming up for the second game.

The Jets have announced their training-camp schedule for spectators. Only three practices are open to the general public — July 29, August 18-19. Why only three? Remember, they have three joint practices with the Redskins in Richmond, Va. (Aug 12-14). There's also less parking than in past years at the Florham Park, NJ facility due to construction in the area. The Green & White scrimmage will be Aug. 4 at Rutgers, not MetLife Stadium.

Brett Gardner says he won't be starting the second game tonight, but he believes he'll be available to pinch hit late in that game. Says his sore right knee is feeling better. Hopes this is "maybe a bump in the road."

The Knicks have a workout scheduled on Tuesday with Loyola's Donte Ingram, sources say. Ingram's workout is believed to be in a group setting. Ingram, a 6-6 guard, has worked out for about ten teams and is viewed by some teams as a potential second-round pick. He's impressed in some workouts with his athleticism and defensive versatility. He's previously worked out for Memphis and Philadelphia, among other teams. Ingram averaged 11 points and 6 rebounds for the Ramblers and helped lead them to an unexpected run to the Final Four.
