After all this time looking up, the Yankees might have been better served taking a glance behind them, because that's where the real threats are looming.

With CC Sabathia continuing to dominate the Red Sox and Greg Bird contributing a two-run homer and a run-scoring single to go with Gary Sanchez's solo blast, the Yankees opened a crucial four-game series against the AL East leaders with a 6-2 victory in front of 43,309 at Yankee Stadium.

The Yankees beat the Red Sox, 6-2, tonight.

He said the Red Sox show him "too much respect". "I don't care if he's mad". He also had help from his defense.

Cabinet approves promulgation of GST (Compensation to States) Ordinance, 2017
India's maiden GST collections hit Rs92,283 crore in July , surpassing the target, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said Tuesday. In the next meeting on September 9, the Council will decide the date on which the cess will become applicable.

Going back to last season, Sabathia has won his past five starts against the Sox without allowing more than two runs in any of them.

Rodriguez was charged with five runs and 10 hits in five-plus innings. Bird's three-RBI game followed a four-RBI effort Wednesday in the second game of a doubleheader against the Indians.

Boston's Joe Kelly pitched a ideal bottom of the eighth and ninth. Aroldis Chapman was up in the bullpen while the Yankees batted in the seventh but wasn't called upon.

Depending on how you look at it, the Red Sox were either lucky the score was so close, or kicking themselves for not making it closer. "They put up some tough at bats", Sabathia said. Eduardo Nunez added a hit and scored a run.

David Robertson worked two hitless innings and Dellin Betances walked home a run in the ninth before retiring Mookie Betts and pinch-hitter Mitch Moreland with the bases loaded to end a game that lasted 3 hours, 44 minutes.

With the Red Sox leading 1-0 in the third, Gardner opened with a single to left-center but was doubled off first base when Rodriguez snagged Hicks' liner up the middle and threw to first for the second out.

When the Yankees tied it a half inning later on Gary Sanchez' 28th home run of the season, the solo blast was very almost a three-run shot. "You try to get on the base any way you can".

They were still within a run in the middle of the sixth inning, but they ultimately gave up 14 hits, botched a costly pop-up and surrendered two pivotal home runs.

Serge Aurier close to Tottenham move
Spurs have already bolstered their back-line after the club-record acquisition of Davinson Sanchez from Ajax . I really like the league, too, and now I'm going to try to make the most of this opportunity.

The days of blowing fastballs past batters are a thing of the past for CC Sabathia.
