Red Sox 9, Yankees 6: If the Red Sox wind up defending their AL East title, the Yankees will look back on this as the night it slipped away. Staked to a 6-3 lead in the seventh inning, New York's bullpen imploded. Boston scored four runs in the seventh, taking the lead on Mitch Moreland's two-run pinch single, and two more in the eighth against embattled Aroldis Chapman. And with Chris Sale scheduled to start Saturday night, the Red Sox's lead in the division is five games.

The rematch between Rafael Devers and Aroldis Chapman goes to ... Devers again. Leadoff single on a 100.4 mph first-pitch fastball in the bottom of the eighth inning with the Red Sox leading 7-6.

Aaron Judge has tied the single-season MLB record with his 35th consecutive game with at least one strikeout.

Bases loaded for Aaron Judge (again.)

Here's the paradox with Joe Kelly: Entering tonight, he had thrown 444 fastballs that averaged 99.32 mph, but nevertheless got only 47 swing-and-misses, according to Brooks Baseball. Gary Sanchez's game-tying homer came on a 99-mph heater.

Joe Kelly hit triple digits six times in that seven-pitch at-bat against Aaron Judge, including 100 on the grounder to short that got him out and ended the Yankees' bases-loaded threat. Red Sox lead, 3-2, in the middle of the sixth inning.

A decent mix of cheers and boos ahead of Giancarlo Stanton's first at-bat at Citi Field. Some loud ohhhs and ahhhs when the Marlins RF made contact for the first time (a hard foul ball to the stands high behind the first-base dugout), too. After working the count to 3-2, Stanton walked. This is his first game since his six-game home run streak came to an end Wednesday.

As the Marlins and Mets wait through a rain delay, let's take a look from the section where Aaron Judge homered Wednesday, 469 feet away.

Mother Nature has been kind so far to the Yankees and Red Sox. First pitch at Fenway Park on time tonight under continued threat of thunderstorms in the Boston area.

Coley Harvey ESPN Staff Writer 

No on-field batting practice at Citi Field ahead of tonight's Marlins/Mets game. There's a threat of rain -- and maybe the threat of a Giancarlo Stanton upper-deck blast.

This is the second time the Yankees have swept the season series from the Mets (also 2003). The Mets have swept the Yankees once in the subway series (2013).

What angered Mets P Paul Sewald so much as he came off the field as the top of the 7th ended? Sewald was likely upset because home plate ump Chad Whitson missed a call on a 3-2 pitch to Aaron Hicks that would have been the 2nd out of the inning. The pitch (labeled "6") had a strike probability of 100%. Had Sewald gotten the call, Aaron Judge's pop out would have ended the inning. Instead, Didi Gregorius hit a go-ahead 2-run double.

Aaron Judge's mammoth home run was his 37th of the season. That ties Albert Pujols (2001 Cardinals) for 3rd-most by a rookie in a season. Judge trails Mark McGwire (49, 1987 Athletics) and Frank Robinson (38, 1956 Reds).

Eric Karabell ESPN Senior Writer 

Well that was just a ridiculous home run by Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge. It went to Connecticut. He's not having a great second half in terms of making contact because pitchers are treating him different. And he was always going to swing and miss. But he should be among the top power bats for years. Second round on fantasy next year might be aggressive but it's 40-homers a year.

After hitting his 37th home run of the season, a 457-ft monster shot off Robert Gsellman, Aaron Judge talks about his adjustments with Yankees assistant hitting coach Marcus Thames.

Mets pitcher Matt Harvey continued his rehab stint in Brooklyn on Wednesday. Harvey went 3 scoreless innings against Aberdeen of the Class-A New York Penn League. Harvey struck out the side on 10 pitches in the 3rd inning.

The injury bug continues to bite the Mets, who made both Wilmer Flores and José Reyes late scratches with left rib cage injuries. The resultant lineup moves led to Travis d'Arnaud making his first career start at third base.

Mets GM Sandy Alderson was not happy with Robert Gsellman, who had told a reporter "I don't really care" when told of Alderson's comment of "he needs to pitch better" on Tuesday. But Alderson did say "I'm going to give him a pass" since Gsellman was pitching Wednesday, his first start since June 27. Gsellman has a 6.16 ERA in 76 IP in 2017. "I hope he reflects on the implications of that statement and the potential consequences of that statement and gives a better response the next time out," Alderson said.

Babe Ruth died 8/16/48 at 53, the same age Jackie Robinson was when he died in 1972. Ruth's single-season record 60 home runs stood until Roger Maris hit 61 in '61. Hank Aaron broke Ruth's career record of 714 in '74.
