We have a fight in Heat-Sixers. James Johnson and Ben Simmons had to be separated. Many players, including Joel Embiid, tried to get involved.

Saturday's sixth inning was a good example of how dangerous this version of the Yankees' lineup can be. Leadoff hitter Brett Gardner opened with a base hit. Then, Aaron Judge, who crushed a 443-foot homer his previous at-bat, drew a four-pitch walk from Marcus Stroman, who seemed unclear on how exactly to pitch him. (It also helped that a first-pitch wild pitch put Gardner in scoring position) After a Didi Gregorius RBI-single, Giancarlo Stanton drew a four-pitch walk. Three batters later, with the bases loaded, Miguel Andújar cleared them on a double to left. Judge also drove in a run late in the frame. By the end, it was a seven-run inning.

The Yankees today recalled reliever Jonathan Holder from Triple-A. He'll be taking the roster spot of right-hander Adam Warren, who goes on the 10-day disabled list. Warren, who pitched Friday night, has been diagnosed with a right back strain.

Jets daily draft nugget: NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock said yesterday he "wouldn't be surprised at all" if the Jets pick Baker Mayfield. But that doesn't mean Mayock would endorse that decision. He said his top-rated QBs are Sam Darnold and Josh Allen. Some league insiders believe the Jets' choice could come down to Mayfield or Josh Rosen. Said Mayock: "I don't have either of them rated that highly."

The Jets have exercised the fifth-year option for DL Leonard Williams, they announced — one of the easiest decisions they've ever had to make.

Yankees starter Sonny Gray spent part of this week working on a small mechanical tweak that was intended to help prevent him from overthinking between pitches. It seemed to work in an efficient, 10-pitch first inning. But it didn't work much beyond that Friday. He was pulled in the fourth after having thrown 73 pitches. Gray finished the night having allowed five runs and walking four. He induced just two whiffs on 25 swings. It was the second-fewest swing-and-miss total of his career. He also didn't strikeout a batter for the second time in his career.
