Rafael Devers's Home Run Broke This Yankees Fan

The 1-2 pitch was a fastball that came in at 102.8 miles per hour and was hit even faster with a 105.9 miles per hour exit velocity to tie the game up at 2-2.

Eduardo Nunez is the DH.

"I haven't looked at it - I think I probably hung it a little more than I would have liked to, but that's what happens here, you make a bad pitch, he's going to hit it a long way", Sale said of the pitch that nearly cleared the right field fence but instead appeared to bounce off the glove of right fielder Mookie Betts.

As ESPN Stats & Info noted, it was the first home run Chapman had allowed since the World Series last season.

Andrew Benintendi hit an RBI single in the top of the 10th inning to score Jackie Bradley Jr. and lift the Boston Red Sox to a 3-2 win over the New York Yankees on Sunday night at Yankee Stadium. The 3-2 victory was Boston's 10th in 11 games, opening up a 5 1/2 game lead over NY in the AL East.

They were fortunate to survive a wild, messy outing on Friday night, with help from some dumb base running by the Red Sox, but on Sunday night Chapman cost them dearly.

The 72-year-old politician has now had four unsuccessful attempts to win the presidency. The incumbent President had appealed for peace after the result was declared Friday.

"I felt really good, I felt this was probably some of the best command and stuff I've had at the same time", Sale said.

It does not mean the Yankees rocked Sale in the previous two meetings at Fenway Park. But first, the scuffling Yankees face the crosstown-rival New York Mets in the Subway Series beginning Monday night.

Facing a late three-run deficit and their offense stuck in neutral, the Yankees seemed headed for another depressing loss in the Most Important Game of the Year. The Red Sox PR department noted it's the lowest ERA by any pitcher vs. the Yankees since earned runs became an official stat in 1912 (minimum 50 innings pitched).

"It was a good pitch", Chapman said through a translator, acknowledging he was a little surprised to see Devers take him deep.

"I was thinking hit the ball up the middle, but you can't plan a home run", the 20-year old said afterwards.

The home run was the fourth of the season for Devers, who's now hitting.328 with 10 RBIs in just 15 big league games.

Soaking rain today with the slight risk of severe weather
Dew points north of I-20 should be in the upper 60s, but south of I-20 will remain in the low 70s. Sunday will be mostly sunny and mostly dry as temperatures return to the low-middle 90s.

The left-hander was lifted in the 10th and walked off the mound to boos.

But who knows how many more times Montgomery may be needed?

Even before Devers' plot twist of a homer, Red Sox first baseman Mitch Moreland pointed out how Devers wasn't like a lot of other rookies, who come into the big leagues "a little wide-eyed at times, maybe a little overwhelmed with the situation". The Yankees won 3-0.

Sale went seven innings and increased his major league-leading strikeout total to 241.

This one Yankees fan recorded that "nope" and the hope that preceded it with a video on Twitter, and it is glorious if you are not a Yankees fan.
