Yankees' Aaron Judge extends record strikeout streak to 37 games

SAN DIEGO - Gio Gonzalez allowed only five singles and struck out eight to lead Washington.

Bauer (12-8) won his fifth straight decision - the longest winning streak of his career that started after a July 17 loss. Ross Stripling (3-4) earned the victory with two scoreless relief innings. Brad Ziegler pitched the ninth for his sixth save.

Jackie Bradley Jr. knocked in three runs on a pair of two-out hits to lead the Boston Red Sox to a 5-1 victory over the New York Yankees on Sunday afternoon at Fenway Park.

NY found themselves down early in Friday's game after starter Jordan Montgomery allowed a two run home run to Red Sox rookie Rafael Devers in the second inning. Bradley then stroked a single up the middle and both runners scored, while Chapman neglected to back up home plate and stood instead, stunned, in front of the mound.

Yankees went silent for seven innings vs. Eduardo Rodriguez, then erupted for five runs in the eighth. He went 5-2/3 innings before leaving with right forearm irritation in the sixth.

Sabathia (10-5), returning from a stint on the disabled list because of sore right knee, retired 13 of the first 14 batters he faced on the way to improving to 3-0 in three starts against Boston this season. Shaw and Allen did not allow a baserunner. Rick Porcello will start game three and is 7-14 with a 4.59 ERA and 145 strikeouts this season.

In San Diego, Yangervis Solarte hit a two-run home run off Stephen Strasburg in the first inning of the right-hander's first start in nearly a month. That's the last thing we would worry about. With Kelly pitching, Judge fouled off two 100 miles per hour pitches with two strikes and laid off a 101 miles per hour fastball to work the count full before grounding out to the shortstop. He struck out four. Starling Marte and pinch hitter Jose Osuna also homered for Pittsburgh. Judge grounded to second to end the inning.

Porcello allowed more than one baserunner in two innings but each time escaped unscathed. He's hit.286 across 21 big league at-bats this season.

This could be a risky NY team in September. Brett Gardner also chipped in a pair of base hits in the winning effort for NY. The five double plays induced by the Mets also tied a team mark. Edwin Diaz regrouped to strike out Kevin Kiermaier and pinch hitter Corey Dickerson hit a weak ground ball as he recorded his 27th save.

Mitch Haniger hit a grand slam, Nelson Cruz added his 31st home run and Seattle rolled to its fourth straight win.

CHICAGO - Alex Avila capped Chicago's three-run 10th inning with a two-run single, and Cubs swept Toronto. Meanwhile, Devers has been solid defensively at third base.

Indeed, Henry's statements came in the wake of deadly white nationalist-led rallies in Charlottesville, Virginia, and only days before tens of thousands of people took to Boston streets to protest hate and bigotry. "Maybe not the kind of power they've had in the past, but they're going to hit their home runs and they're a contact team".

Cy Young victor Rick Porcello may be turning it around just when this Boston Red Sox rotation needs a lift.
