Can they still catch the Boston Red Sox?

Can they still catch the Boston Red Sox?

Tanaka delivered the best start of his four-year tenure with the Yankees, who stayed alive in the American League East race. It was the seventh time a NY starting pitcher struck out at least 15 and first instance Michael Pineda fanned 16 against the Baltimore Orioles on May 10, 2015. Strasburg gave up 2 hits and 2 walks while striking out 8. Chad Bettis picked up his second win since returning from testicular cancer, holding the NL West champs to one run over seven innings and retiring his last 14 batters.

DENVER - Colorado moved closer to reaching the postseason for the first time since 2009 after walloping Los Angeles. The Yankees are now two back of the Red Sox in the AL East. "But we've gone through stretches before where we've gone through a turn through the rotation where it's been less than".

Boston added another run in the bottom of the sixth to get to within one, 3-2. McCullers has a 4.78 ERA in 12 road starts. Vogt was 2-for-4 for the Brewers, delivering their first three runs. The offense, however, managed only one run, leaving the bases loaded in the sixth and stranding the tying run at second in the ninth. He allowed a two-out, three-run double to Marwin Gonzalez in the first, then a two-run homer to Alex Bregman in the second.

It was the 36th homer of the year for Zimmerman, who hit a combined 36 homers over his previous three injury-plagued seasons.

Baghdad cranks up pressure on Kurds with flight ban
The transport minister of the Kurdish Regional Government (KRG), Mawloud Bawah Murad, expressed bafflement at the move by Baghdad. The region is over 20 billion dollars in debt, and the state will need foreign investment to expand and diversify the economy.


Rays 7, Orioles 0: Evan Longoria and Logan Morrison homered, and host Tampa Bay sealed a third-place finish in the AL East. Longoria hit a leadoff drive in the fifth, marking his fifth straight 20-homer season and the ninth of his 10-year career. He should be tuning up for the postseason with two or three innings, not digging deep to avoid Game 162. Cubs reliever Brian Duensing (1-1) earned the win after working a scoreless eighth. With two out in the fifth, Bregman, who doubled in the first, connected for his 19th of the season.

"It's just go win one game", the star outfielder said.

YANKEES 4, BLUE JAYS 0: In New York, Masahiro Tanaka struck out 15 over seven innings, his highest total since coming to the major leagues, and playoff-bound New York beat Toronto to remain on the edge of contention in the AL East. And when the Astros put runners on second and third with nobody out in the first, it looked like it would happen again, but Fister escaped and didn't fall behind until the third. Marcell Ozuna collected three ribbies, including a two-run double after Atlanta took an early 5-0 lead. Last night's starter, Brad Peacock, went five innings with four hits and two runs, and his ERA actually climbed from 2.98 to 3.00.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Whit Merrifield hit a go-ahead home run and Ian Kennedy ended a franchise-record home winless streak in Kansas City's victory over Arizona. Whit Merrifield broke a 1-1 deadlock with a third-inning homer. Pomeranz has a 3.58 ERA in 16 home starts. Buster Posey and Brandon Crawford each had three hits and three RBIs. A month ago, however, we believed they could overtake the Astros for the best record in the American League. Milwaukee has won four of its last six games.

Election investigation unfolds as Senate involves tech giants
Mark Warner (D-Va.) wasn't satisfied with Twitter's presentation Thursday, calling it "frankly inadequate on nearly every level". Twitter looked into the Russian-linked accounts on Facebook and found 22 corresponding accounts on Twitter .


Justin Bour provided the go-ahead, two-run single in a four-run seventh as the Marlins nipped the Braves, 6-5. "There are still two games left in the season".

Houston is one game behind Cleveland for the AL's best record, and there's little mystery about what's made the Astros so good.

PHILADELPHIA - Behind three home runs, Philadelphia beat NY on the same day it announced that manager Pete Mackanin will not be retained following the 2017 season.

With the rain intensifying, the manager came to the mound for a meeting.

NY sends more utility crews to Puerto Rico to help restore power
During my visit to Puerto Rico with the Governor last week, I was overwhelmed by the destruction and loss throughout the island. After 12 years on the mainland, she moved back to Puerto Rico in 1992 and immediately jumped into local politics.
