Red Sox's Porcello tries to prevent sweep vs. Jays

28 Setiembre 2017, 06:13 | Cornelio Vivanco



The last time a reigning Cy Young Award Winner has lost 17 games after winning the Cy Young was Jim Lonborg in 1965.

Chris Sale was tagged for the four home runs over five innings as the Red Sox saw their division lead cut to three games over the Yankees.

Domingo Santana ripped a three-run homer as the Brewers held off the Reds, 7-6 to stay 1 1/2 games behind the Rockies for the second NL wild card.

Betts was removed from the Red Sox's game against the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday after complaining of a "sharp pain" in his wrist when he swings a bat.

A look at his past four starts show the ups and downs of his season.

Teoscar Hernandez hit one of his two homers off Sale, and Kendrys Morales had the other against Boston's ace lefty.

Farrell said he'd ideally like to rest Pomeranz for the remainder of the regular season, if the Sox close out the division before his turn comes around again on Saturday, when the AL West champion Houston Astros will be at Fenway.

Red Sox officials announced Wednesday that ticket prices will rise by 2.5 percent, leading to increases of between $1 and $5 in certain sections, including field box, loge box, Bud Deck Barstools, grandstand and bleachers. "We've gotta go out and take care of business tomorrow with Rick on the mound".

Hernandez didn't stop there, following Ryan Goins' RBI single in the eighth by pounding a cookie two-seamer well over the Monster, his second multi-homer game of his career, both this month.

The AL East leaders hung in there against the last-place Toronto Blue Jays but still took a 6-4 loss.

The right-hander recently avoided imminent free agency by signing a one-year, $13 million contract for 2018.

Teoscar Hernandez, who continues to generate excitement, and Kendrys Morales also took him deep, as Sale allowed four home runs for only the second time in his career, the first coming August 23, 2013 against Texas. He will be available to start Game 162 if the Red Sox need to win that game, otherwise they can shut him down for a bit and have him ready to go for Game 1 of the ALDS. He gave up four runs to the Rays on September 15, then struck out 13 Baltimore Orioles in eight scoreless innings last Wednesday night. He's already signed his contract. "It is nice, to be able to finish strong, more importantly because of how frustrating at times it's been".

Toronto is 5-1 in Estrada's last 6 starts and 6-2 in their last 8 division matchups while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 games against a team with a winning record.

But while they're still here, the Jays had done their best to make one of their more prominent rivals sweat. He got eight of them. He did so with a second-inning punch-out of the Toronto Blue Jays' Kevin Pillar at Rogers Centre. It goes without saying that Donaldson is a must-play in all formats for the final week of the season, as he has hit just 11 home runs prior to the current stretch. Andrew Benintendi had a pinch-hit solo homer. 3-for-14 (.214) and Chris Young 2-for-9 (.222).
