During the 1951 season, New York Giants coach Herman Franks set up a military field scope in the home clubhouse at the Polo Grounds, which was in center field. From that spot, Franks ran a sign-stealing operation that likely enabled one of the most famous home runs in baseball history.

In a playoff game against Brooklyn on October 3 of that year, Dodgers pitcher Ralph Branca threw a fastball to Bobby Thomson.

Thomson took a comfortable hack, lined the pitch over the left field wall, and announcer Russ Hodges made the iconic call, "The Giants win the pennant! The Giants win the pennant!"

The Yankees beat the Royals, 6-5, to earn a sweep in today's split doubleheader at Kauffman Stadium. >> Box score

Four takeaways from Saturday's game...

1) After Chad Green allowed a first inning run as the Yankees opener, the team turned to Chance Adams, the club's 26th man for the doubleheader. Adams pitched well, despite his line as his defense was atrocious behind him and the official scorer handed out some gift hits to the Royals that probably should have been ruled errors. Regardless, anyone watching had to like how Adams got the ball back each time his defense failed him, threw strikes and worked at a very good pace. He earned his first career MLB win.

Masahiro Tanaka threw seven dominant innings in the Yankees' 7-1 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday at Tropicana Field, striking out seven batters and allowing just one run.

"I think looking back a couple of games, I think today was one of the best [starts] I threw," Tanaka said through an interpreter, according to MLB.com's Dawn Klemish.

Tanaka threw just 73 pitches, but he was effective. He needed just nine pitches to get through the fourth inning, seven in the fifth and four in the seventh. He retired 12 batters in a row between the second and sixth innings before Austin Meadows' solo home run ended Tanaka's shutout.

CC Sabathia gets 3,000th K 00:01:06
New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia is the 17th player to reach 3,000 strikeouts. SNY's Sweeny Murti believes this makes him a HOF lock.

Anthony McCarron, SNY.tv | Twitter |

Now that CC Sabathia has notched his 3,000th strikeout, it'll be tempting to boil that milestone down to what it says about his Hall of Fame credentials. It's a terrific boost, obviously, but Sabathia authored a marvelous, entertaining career long before he fanned John Ryan Murphy Wednesday night to hit that magic number.

So 3K strikeouts ought to be recognized as an occasion to appreciate what Sabathia has done in his 19 seasons, too, especially because he's retiring at the end of the year. There will be debate about whether he belongs in Cooperstown, but there's no denying that the ride has been something special.

The Yankees beat the Royals 7-6 in walk-off fashion at Yankee Stadium on Sunday. >> Box score

Seven takeaways from Sunday's game

1) Austin Romine has been mostly quiet since taking over the full-time role with Gary Sanchez on the injured list. But, he had the game-tying single in the eighth inning and the walk-off single in the 10th to give the Yanks the walk-off win, part of a three-hit day.

This might isn't a good sign regarding the status of Gary Sanchez.

The Yankees are calling up catcher Kyle Higashioka from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Scranton manager Jay Bell said Thursday night, according to the Times-Tribune's Conor Foley.

Sanchez was the designated hitter on Tuesday and did not start on Wednesday because of tightness in both legs. Sanchez pinch-hit in the eighth inning Wednesday and struck out.

Yankees RHP Domingo German threw six strong innings, taking a no-hitter into the sixth inning in Sunday's 15-3 victory over the Orioles at Camden Yards.

"The key today was to mix my pitches and be unpredictable out there, try to use my changeup in a way that they weren't expecting it," German said, according to MLB.com's Bryan Hoch. "That's something I worked on in between starts. It worked out very well for me today."

He needed 60 fewer at-bats this season.

Sanchez hit three home runs in Sunday's 15-3 win over the Orioles to move into a tie with the Dodgers' Cody Bellinger for the MLB lead and take sole possession of the American League lead.

The Yankees go for a three-game sweep of the Orioles on Sunday at 1:05 p.m. 

Yankees Notes

In an American League where many expected contenders are struggling (the Red Sox are 2-8, the Astros are 4-5), the Yankees' +6 run differential is the fourth-best. ... The Yanks enter the day 1.5 games behind the Rays for first place in the AL East.

When we think of a club's overall success, it typically and rightfully relies upon the performance of the starters. However, the production from the bench players is of great importance understanding there will be injuries and performance issues along the way.

The Yankees have a couple of players considered locks to make the Opening Day roster as bench options, a handful of potential choices for the final spot on the bench and a long shot to be among the reserves late in the season.

Yankees first baseman Greg Bird is slashing .389/.500/.722 with one home run and three RBIs through eight spring training games.

Teammate Luke Voit is hitting .286/.412/.714 with two home runs and five RBIs, and has noticeably improved his defense, through eight Grapefruit League games as well.

Yet manager Aaron Boone isn't ready to declare a favorite in the Yankees' first base competition, for which there is likely only one spot on the 25-man roster.

The Yankees couldn't match the Cardinals' offense Wednesday afternoon, falling on their home field, 9-5, in Tampa.

Five things to know about Wednesday's game

1) The only offense produced until a last-minute attempt at a comeback in the ninth came from an Austin Romine three-run jack in the bottom of the second. That was the only time the Yankees collected a hit with runners in scoring position, finishing 1-for-10 on the day.

It was reported earlier Tuesday the Yankees may be in on the J.T. Realmuto trade talks, but GM Brian Cashman killed that idea right away during his media availabilty.

According to multiple reports, Cashman isn't pursuing a starting catcher, and is committed to Gary Sanchez staying in the position for the 2019 season. 

The reason some may have believed the Yankees would want a change at the catching position stems from Sanchez' tumultuous season in 2018. He hit a dreadful .186/.291/.406 with 18 homers and 53 RBI over 89 games, as he battled trips to the DL with groin injuries.

Aaron Boone talks Game 3 defeat 00:03:56
Yankees manager Aaron Boone explains what went wrong for Luis Severino and the Bombers as they got crushed by Boston, 16-1 in ALDS Game 3.

Luis Severino allowed six runs in three-plus innings, including three in a seven-run fourth inning, as the Yankees were pushed to the brink of elimination with a 16-1 loss to the Red Sox in Game 3 of the ALDS on Monday at Yankee Stadium. >> Box score


1) After throwing four scoreless innings in last Wednesday's wild-card game, Severino (0-1) gave up six runs, seven hits and two walks on Monday, getting pulled after he loaded the bases in the fourth. Lance Lynn surrendered a bases-loaded walk to Mookie Betts and a bases-clearing double to Andrew Benintendi that gave the Red Sox a 7-0 lead.

2) Severino's counterpart, Nathan Eovaldi, shut down the Yankees, allowing just one run and five hits in seven innings as the Red Sox took a 2-1 series lead.

Chris Carelli, SNY.TV Facebook | Twitter | About Me | Archives: On Wednesday night, the Yankees will host the Athletics in the American League Wild Card Game with a trip to the ALDS against Boston on the line. The winner-moves-on affair will be hotly contested between two extremely talented, yet different clubs.

Yankees regulars vs. Athletics regulars

The Yankees come at opposing pitchers with a strong right-handed leaning lineup. They pounded 267 home runs this season, but not a single player hit over 40 alone, and Aaron Judge played in just 111 games. Instead, the Yankees distributed their homers across 19 players, with 12 players reaching double digits (an MLB record). Each of their presumed starting nine managed at least 14 homers. And despite a much higher payroll than the A's, the Yanks maintain a young offensive core, with eight players no older than 28.

The Yankees blew out the Rays, 12-1, on Thursday afternoon, but the story of the game was CC Sabathia's retaliation after the Rays threw behind one of his teammates. >> Box score


1) After Andrew Kittredge threw high and behind Austin Romine in the top of the sixth inning, Romine exchanged words with Rays catcher Jesus Sucre. In the bottom of the inning, Sabathia's first pitch to Sucre drilled him in the leg, leading to an immediate ejection. It also cost Sabathia $500,000, since he was two innings away from hitting his innings incentive. Sabathia looked at the Rays dugout on his way off the field, and said "that's for you, b*tch." 

2) Miguel Andujar, Giancarlo Stanton (2), and Luke Voit all homered for the Yankees. 

3) Before his ejection, Sabathia tossed five innings of one-hit ball, walking none and striking out five.

When Austin Romine homered on Saturday, he became the 10th Yankee to hit at least 10 home runs this season -- and if just one more player does the same, the Yankees will tie a major league record.

Romine's 10th home run came in the seventh inning when he hit a solo shot during the Yankees' 4-2 win.

"We've gotten production from a lot of different places, maybe some we didn't even expect coming into the year," manager Aaron Boone said, per Bryan Hoch of MLB.com. "Guys have had to play more. Young guys have taken over significant roles. The fact that we've gotten production from everywhere is a big reason we're having a strong year."

1) Lynn was solid, earning the win after allowing just two runs on three hits and walking no one in six innings. The veteran right-hander struck out two.

2) McCutchen's homer led off the ballgame. It was his second home run as a Yankee and his second in as many days.

3) Romine went deep in the seventh to break a 2-2 tie. With his career-high 10th home run, the catcher become the 10th Yankee to reach double-digit homers this season.

Yankees manager Aaron Boone has been provided more leash than others due to a 50-22 start. But, since the exceptional opening to the season, Boone's Yankees are 19-20 and lost five straight games before Monday night's win in Chicago.

"For him to go out there and give us a strong outing like he did, I'm sure he feels really good about that," Yankees manager Aaron Boone said, according to ESPN's Coley Harvey.

The 35-year-old Happ, whom the Yankees acquired last week from the Toronto Blue Jays in exchange for infielder Brandon Drury and outfielder Billy McKinney, said he had butterflies seeing himself in a Yankees uniform, but got over them quickly.

This is either incredibly amazing timing or the Yankees are trolling their own player.

The morning after Gary Sanchez's lack of hustle on both sides of the ball hurt the Yankees in a one-run loss, the team tweeted about "Heart and Hustle" award winner Austin Romine -- Sanchez's backup.

After Ronald Acuna Jr. connected on a 1-2 slider, Yankees RHP David Robertson thought he had an out. Instead, he gave the lead back to the Braves in the top of the 11th inning. 

Yankees C Austin Romine signaled for the slider to be down to get the 20-year-old Acuna chasing. However, he lifted it out to right field, an area no pitcher wants to see a high fly ball go at Yankee Stadium. 

The infamous short porch did the trick.

Yankees manager Aaron Boone said he hopes catcher Gary Sanchez can return from a Grade 1 right groin strain around the All-Star break, he told reporters before Sunday's game against the Red Sox.

Sanchez was placed on the 10-day disabled list on Monday after he left last Sunday's game against the Rays after grounding into a double play, walking gingerly off the field.

Boone estimated then that Sanchez would miss approximately three to four weeks. The All-Star break would coincide with Boone's initial evaluation.

Yankees RHP Jonathan Loaisiga struck out eight batters in 5 1/3 scoreless innings in Monday's 4-2 win over the Philadelphia Phillies at Citizens Bank Park.

Making his third MLB start after being promoted from Double-A Trenton to replace the injured Masahiro Tanaka, the 23-year-old Loaisiga (2-0) took a perfect game into the fifth inning and a no-hitter into the sixth, retiring the first 12 batters he faced.

"He had some confidence out there," catcher Austin Romine told reporters after the game. "I could see him in a groove, he just got the ball and executed pitches."

The Yankees have sent catcher Gary Sanchez to the 10-day DL with a right groin strain, which he sustained during Sunday's loss to the Rays.

Sanchez is probably looking at a three-to-four week absence, manager Aaron Boone said before Monday night's game.

"It's huge," Boone said about being without Sanchez. "Gary Sanchez out of your lineup, that's a big deal."

How is it that a designated hitter can affect the role of the catchers on a club? Plate appearances.

While the Yankees may not regret trading for OF Giancarlo Stanton, there has been an unforeseen development among the club's catchers that has manager Aaron Boone searching for a balance of duties behind the dish. Stanton's role with the club may be making that difficult.

After Sonny Gray threw six innings of two-run ball in Monday's 2-1 loss to the Houston Astros, Yankees manager Aaron Boone said the team will plan for Austin Romine to catch Gray for the near future when the schedule permits as opposed to Gary Sanchez.

"I think his next start is probably that Saturday when we're at home (against Cleveland), which will be a day game after a night game," Boone said, according to Newsday's Erik Boland. "So especially in those kind of scenarios, when it makes sense, at least in the short term, we'll do that."

With the franchise's youngest lineup in 48 years, the Yankees improved to 4-2 on their 10-game homestand with a 5-1 win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday at Yankee Stadium.

Luis Severino, 24, struck out six batters in seven strong innings, while 23-year-old Miguel Andujar went 4-for-4 with two doubles and an RBI as the Yankees' starting lineup featured no players over the age of 30 for the first time since 1989.

"We've worked really hard -- long before I got here -- at building this organization from the ground up," manager Aaron Boone said, according to Newsday's Erik Boland. "Feel like we're in position not only to be a really good team in the short term but in the long term, and I think that's a result of that."
