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.

Like all MLB teams, the Yankees will wear alternative jerseys this weekend, meaning they will have names on their backs and no pinstripes. Commissioner Rob Manfred, who grew up a Yankee fan, said, "Modern civilization is going to probably survive."

Giants going day by day with OBJ, Marshall

Giants coach Ben McAdoo played it coy in his updates on injured wide receivers Odell Beckham Jr. (ankle) and Brandon Marshall (shoulder), saying both players would be evaluated daily.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

Masahiro Tanaka is not only trying to help pitch the Yankees into the playoffs, he is trying to make his opt-out decision difficult. Tanaka will start tonight after the Yankees took him off the DL following his recovery from inflammation in his right shoulder. At the end of the season, he can opt out of the final three years and $68 million of his contract. Right now, it is hard to see him doing that with an 8-10 record and a 4.92 ERA.

In just a little while, Rory McIlroy is gonna make more contact with a ball than Aaron Judge has in a while! That's not really fair. McIlroy will be hitting a golf balls along with a patient from St. Jude Children's Hospital at multiple targets from the 200 level at Yankee Stadium onto the field.

Red Sox 5, Yankees 1: Two out of three ain't bad. It's also exactly what the Sox needed. For the second weekend in a row, the Red Sox managed to keep the second-place Yankees at arm's length by winning two of three games. Jackie Bradley Jr. drove in three runs, including a tone-setting two-run triple in the second inning against Yankees starter Sonny Gray. Rick Porcello tossed six solid innings for his fourth consecutive win.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Aaron Judge went hitless Sunday, striking out in the eighth inning to match Bill Stoneman's MLB record with strikeouts in 37 straight games. Judge has struck out in all 15 games he has played against the Red Sox this season; he is hitting .155 and has only one home run against Boston.

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.

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.

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

Chris Sale: "Any time I give up two homers in a game it's not going to work out. I've got to be better than that." On the pitches that were hit by Tyler Austin and Todd Frazier: "One was a fastball, one was a slider, and I've never seen a good pitch go over the fence."
