Porcello has pitched well against the Yankees this season, going 2-0 with a 2.53 earned run average in three starts, fanning 18, walking three and allowing just one home run in 21-1/3 innings. NY and the Boston Red Sox are both locked into their postseason roles, both with home field advantage.
Judge's homer was his first since July 21.
Yankees: RF Aaron Judge, whose eighth-inning homer Friday night tied the Yankees with the Mariners' record, was out of the lineup after hitting the right-field wall while making a catch.
BOSTON - Mookie Betts claimed the big league batting title with one more hit and J.D. Martinez hit his 43rd homer Sunday to lead the AL East champion Boston Red Sox into the playoffs with their franchise-record 108th win, a 10-2 victory over the wild-card winning New York Yankees. "We're hard to beat there, so that's going to be huge for us".
Voit's solo home run in the seventh landed in the home bullpen. These Yankees became the first team to get at least 20 home runs from all nine spots in the batting order.
"We do feel if the mechanics are close or ideal, velocity will come with it", Cora said.
Cora said his team would have Monday off, and he planned to watch the NL tiebreakers and the wild-card games.More news: Amazon adds 4K streaming to the Fire TV Stick

"That's the idea when you're an opposing fan, but I don't think that's what he meant to do", Stanton said of the incident, via ESPN. And I'm like, 'Hey, this is what people see from you guys.' Some of them were surprised. He is the first AL player to lead the majors in both batting average and extra-base hits since Mickey Mantle in 1956. NY has now had 16 games with four or more home runs, a feat no other team has replicated this season.
Said manager Aaron Boone: "In a lot of ways we're built for our ballpark".
The Yankees hit four home runs in Friday night's win over the Red Sox.
Red Sox: Nunez remained in the game after the brush with Cessa but remained in the game until he was pinch run for after a sixth-inning walk. Last year, the Yankees rallied from a 3-0 first-inning deficit to beat the Minnesota Twins and advance to the ALDS. And it feels like the teams are overdue for a playoff matchup, as the best rivalry in baseball has not been featured in the postseason since 2004. "Our power plays, a lot of our guys, especially our right-handed hitters, use that right field to their advantage". "We're a great team when we're playing at home".
NY reached 100 wins for the 20th time in franchise history and first since going 103-59 in 2009, when the Yankees went on to win their most recent World Series title.
