Rare is the club in franchise history that can make such claims. It also accomplished that in 1903 and 2013, winning the World Series in both years.
Betts finished with a major league-best.346 average, Martinez drove in three to give him an AL-best 130 RBIs, and Rick Porcello pitched two innings of no-hit ball before leaving with a 7-0 lead in his final tuneup for the postseason.
Red Sox left-hander Brian Johnson (4-5) allowed two runs in three innings and left with a 2-0 deficit. The 45th sellout crowd of the season, a total of 36,201 fans, enjoyed the pleasant fall sunshine. Sale typically has great command of all of his other pitches, including his devastating slider, as the Red Sox skipper noted.
Nick Cafardo echoed that sentiment earlier this week, arguing the that Sox-Yankees would be more compelling than if they played the Oakland A's. There won't be the same spring training feel to that one regardless of opponent for Boston, with the players and staff all but begging for the season to end after clinching home field advantage throughout the playoffs on Monday night against the Orioles. The 25-year-old southpaw will have to pitch better than he did on Saturday. We needed it anyway. Betts is one of the frontrunners for AL MVP. Colorado outfielders Ellis Burks (1996) and Larry Walker (1997) were the others, doing so at altitude in their home Coors Field.
"Hopefully we've got the lead and we can give the ball to the next guy and the next guy and then we'll give it to Kimbrel and we go from there", Cora said.
"I'm happy for them. It's definitely a blessing and something I don't take for granted". "They joke with me, but, no, I've always felt that I've had a little bit in the tank, and I'm not going to hit a ton of home runs, but I can drive the ball whenever I get a good pitch and put a good swing on it".
Cristiano Ronaldo sued over historic alleged rape in Las Vegas hotel
She was invited to join guests in a hot tub but she declined because she did not have a bathing suit, the complaint said. Ronaldo is a 4-time Balon D'Or victor and is regarded as one of the best ever footballers in history.
Gleyber Torres began the scoring in the six-run fourth with a two-run double, Andrew McCutchen hit a run-scoring single and Hicks clubbed a three-run home run to right for his 27th home run of the season. He's batting.330 on the year.
"I say: 'Why not?'" center fielder Aaron Hicks said. "I think everybody is very confident".
Betts (six games), Brock Holt (11) and Jackie Bradley Jr. The Red Sox have no clear setup option ahead of closer Craig Kimbrel, with journeyman Ryan Brasier and the inconsistent Matt Barnes most often getting the call.
"We started off 5-10 and when we took off, we were still around.500 and that seemed totally appropriate".
After Greg Bird's RBI double put NY up 2-1 in the fourth, Torres hit a 1-1 pitch from Rodriguez out to right, sailing over the head of Blake Swihart at the bullpen wall and giving the Yankees the record-breaking 265th homer.
