Jason Kipnis' monthlong DL stint due to hamstring injury ends

Jason Kipnis' monthlong DL stint due to hamstring injury ends

The Yankees saved Aroldis Chapman from re-living a post-season nightmare. The Yankees, who have lost four in a row and scored a total of six runs in those games, will try to halt that losing streak Saturday night at Progressive Field in the third game of a four-game series against the Cleveland Indians.

It didn't feel like one. Ronald Torreyes grounded into a 6-4 force play, putting runners at the corners for Romine. Francona said that might result in a slightly different role for closer Cody Allen.

As Ramirez's ball headed to left, some of the Indians were convinced it was gone - and they had gotten Chapman again. I'm sure he was thrilled about that. "I hate to wait around for the ninth inning, and then not get there".

Kluber (9-3) pitched a complete game on August 3 when the Tribe beat the Yankees, 5-1.

And in the seventh, Judge's three-run homer - a patented laser shot to center - put the exclamation point on an 8-1 Yankees win against the Indians before 33,044 fans.

Headley pulled a 0-1 curveball and his sixth homer barely cleared the wall in right.

"I didn't locate the pitch that I wanted to and it's frustrating", McAllister said.

The 30-year-old is in the middle of a rough 2017 campaign, as the two-time All-Star now owns a meager slash line of.232/.292/.402 with eight home runs and 26 RBI over 283 plate appearances.

The Indians had their home winning streak stopped at nine games. Salazar has been nearly unhittable in two starts since coming off the disabled list.

Salazar was hoarse afterward and didn't speak with reporters.

The victory allowed the Yankees to remain three lengths back of the first-place and surging Red Sox in the AL East. Bauer has won his last three starts, and in the last two allowed two earned runs over 15 innings. We don't want to run him into the ground. It just kind of comes with the territory of getting older. "He's healthy. We all know when he's healthy, he's a unsafe pitcher".

Slumping defensively, catcher Gary Sanchez - who leads Major League Baseball with 12 passed balls - was benched Sunday in favor of backup Austin Romine, who was in-step with Severino all afternoon. Sanchez hasn't been replaced, but Girardi is going to rest him when the schedule allows.

"I've seen him continue to improve all year long, " manager Joe Girardi said of his right-hander.

Judge is still struggling. He is 6-1 since returning from the disabled list from a back injury to pitch on June 1. Holliday tweaked his back while swinging during Friday's game and was kept out of the lineup.

Indians: 2B Jason Kipnis will come off the disabled list Sunday and is expected to start the series finale.

Katarina Johnson-Thompson moves into third
Johnson-Thompson has the 800m on Sunday evening left and needs an unlikely result to snatch a medal. It is a brutal, sweaty jigsaw and the 24-year-old Franco-Scouser still has too many rough edges.

"It happened right before the All-Star break, so I mean that is kind of the midpoint for me anyway", he said.
