"That was a team win right there", Ramirez said. "Let's face it, we get who's hot, who's not and who are you going to pick to attack in tight situations. We want to be a champion". (The practice is, however, considered a violation of baseball's often inscrutable unwritten code; if someone is caught peeking, they might get yelled at, or else thrown at during their next at-bat).
Coming off a sensational seven innings in Baltimore, Joe Biagini worked in and out of trouble over the first three innings Wednesday night, holding the Red Sox to just one run.
But the Red Sox aren't quite ready to start marking dates on a calendar. But the Yankees still made it a rough day for their longtime rival.
The confirmation follows a New York Times report that claims the league is looking into the Red Sox's use of an Apple Watch to steal opposing team's signals.
Electronics and video have become more a part of baseball and all sports in recent years.
This was the second-longest game ever at Fenway, which opened in 1912. It was then - it then confronted the Red Sox. "We are pleased that Apple's groundbreaking products, which have already improved the access that fans have to our sport, will now inform the decisions that make our games interesting and exciting throughout the year". Boston ultimately admitted as much after being approached by the league.
Girardi said the Yankees not only anxious about the Red Sox.
ATHLETICS 3, ANGELS 1 Sean Manaea pitched six-plus innings of shutout ball and Khris Davis homered as Oakland snapped a season-high eight-game losing streak with a victory over visiting Los Angeles.
METS 6, PHILLIES 3 (6) Robert Gsellman pitched well in a winning return from the minors and Travis d'Arnaud homered to help host NY beat Philadelphia in a game shortened to six innings because of rain.
SIEGEL: We're talking about one of the great rivalries in baseball - between the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees. "There was some pretty good pitching going on both sides". He then gives a message to the players in the dugout, who relays the information to their teammates on the field. Morales is 9-for-27 with three homers and Jose Bautista 7-for-20 against Fister. Miguel Montero stepped on the plate, then took a look around the infield before determining his best shot at a second out was at third, so he fired to Darwin Barney to complete the left field-to-catcher-to-third base double play.
Morales led off the sixth with a homer off Eduardo Rodriguez for a 2-0 lead. Darwin Barney was next, and he couldn't repeat the magic from his three-hit Tuesday night, grounding out to short to end the inning. They might just be the first ones to use an Apple Watch to do so, and I think that scares purists of a game that is almost 150 years old.
Blue Jays: Toronto manager John Gibbons is away from the team attending to a personal matter.
"I don't really know what the rule book says on that", Pedroia said.
