Yankees slugger Giancarlo Stanton gave New York a scare with an awkward fall in right field. An inning later Mike White Jersey
, he showed everyone in the Bronx that he was just fine.Stanton, Aaron Hicks and Kyle Higashioka each homered and New York went ahead early and hung on to beat the Atlanta Braves 8-5 on Tuesday night.
Stanton was shaken up after crashing into the right field wall chasing after Nick Markakis‘ seventh-inning home run. He knocked padding off the base of the
wall, and the team’s training staff ran out to check on New York’s prized
offseason acquisition a pitch later. Stanton remained in the game, made a
leaping catch later in the inning, then slugged his 20th home run of the season
in the eighth.
”That’s par for the course, that’s baseball,” Stanton said. ”If you get subbed in, you usually get the ball the first time, so, something like that
happens, expect it.”
Stanton’s homer gave New York some breathing room after the Braves crept on its early lead. His two-run shot off Evan Phillips made him the 11th player to
reach 20 homers in each of his first nine major league seasons. Phillips was
making his major league debut.
New York is a major league-best 32-13 at home. The Yankees improved to a majors-best 21-6 against left-handed starters and remain a game behind Boston
for the best record in baseball.
Aaron Judge had two hits and a walk Clinton Portis Jersey
, and he stole two bases for the first time in his career. Hicks also walked twice as New York drew eight free passes.
Markakis and Ender Inciarte each hit two-run homers for Atlanta, which ended a four-game winning streak. The Braves remain atop the NL East but fell behind
the Brewers for the best record in the NL.
A night after Atlanta rookie Ronald Acuna Jr. barely cleared the wall to give Atlanta an 11-inning victory, the Yankees took advantage of their cozy
Hicks continued his home run binge by hitting Sean Newcomb’s 95 mph fastball two rows into the right field stands for his 15th of the season and a 2-0 lead
in the first. Hicks has hit nine home runs in his last 17 games.
”He’s put together a really good season for us and right now, he’s at a really, really good place in the batter’s box,” Boone said.
Newcomb (8-3) stood on the mound shaking his head after the ball carried over the fence. The left-hander allowed five runs in 2 2/3 innings in the shortest
start of his career. Newcomb had posted three straight quality starts but threw
a career-high 111 pitches his last time out.
”Balls kind of get sucked up out there, so that’s frustrating,” he said.
New York scored twice in the third without a hit. Newcomb walked the bases loaded, then walked Brandon Drury to force in a run. Luke Jackson relieved, but
he walked Higashioka for another run. Newcomb’s five walks matched a career
”He was just having a hard time controlling everything,” Braves manager Brian Snitker said.
Staked with a six-run cushion Maliek Collins Jersey
, Yankees starter Domingo German tired in the fifth. After Johan Camargo walked, Inciarte crushed a curveball into the stands for his
sixth of the season.
Rookie Ozzie Albies homered on the next pitch to draw Atlanta within three. Freddie Freeman and Markakis hit consecutive singles to end German’s night.
Atlanta hit back-to-back homers for just the third time this season.
A.J. Cole, reinstated off the disabled list earlier in the day, struck out Tyler Flowers with the bases loaded to end the threat. Since being acquired from
Washington on April 23, Cole (2-0) has allowed one earned run in 14 2/3
In the eighth, Chasen Shreve relieved with runners on first and second and one out and retired Inciarte and Albies to preserve a one-run lead.
Aroldis Chapman threw a scoreless ninth for his 23rd save. The hard-throwing closer was used in three straight games for the first time this season.
Eight-year old Hailey Dawson threw out the ceremonial first pitch with her 3D printed hand created by students at UNLV. Dawson was born with Poland Syndrome,
a rare birth defect that left the youngster without the three middle fingers on
her right hand. She has been on a quest to throw a first pitch for each MLB

After three games, the Toronto Raptors have yet to find the answer.
They came close against the Cavaliers in Games 1 and 3 of this Eastern Conference semifinal. If they don’t figure things out in Game 4 on Monday night,
they will have all summer to ponder the problem.
”All three games have presented different plays that would have to be done at certain points of the game to get over the hump,” swingman C.J. Miles said
before the shootaround. ”We see them. It’s not’s like there’s no door to get out
of the room.”
But this is no easy escape. No NBA team has rallied from a 3-0 deficit to win a playoff series.
”The cause of lack of sleep at night when you can replay the game and see so many turning points,” Miles said. ”It’s easy in hindsight to say that play
changes everything. You never know. But you always think about the fact that you
want to give yourself the best shot every single night and there’s some plays
that didn’t always give us the best shot.”
Toronto is coming off a 105-103 loss Saturday, a crushing defeat courtesy of LeBron James‘ bank shot at the buzzer. Guard Fred VanVleet says the Raptors have
no choice but to ”keep scratching and clawing.”
”We’ve been in all three games, we’ve had chances to win pretty much all three games, being up in some of the games Skai Moore Jersey
,” he said. ”We’re right there, we’re competing. We’ve just got to do a little bit more, make a couple more plays and I think we’ll be in
This could be the third straight season the Cavs eliminate the Raptors. Going into Monday’s games, Cleveland had won nine straight playoff games against
Cleveland is 9-0 when up 3-0 in a series. Toronto is 0-2 when behind 0-3 (swept in 2015 by Washington and 2017 by Cleveland).
The Cavs can reach the conference final for the fourth straight season and eighth time in franchise history.
”I think we have a group of guys that are warriors,” Raptors coach Dwane Casey said. ”And I know they’re going to bounce back. As far as the fight, I
love what we did the other night.”
The shot by James, an off-balance 10-foot, has been replayed endlessly on TV. There is also the endless discussion of how Cleveland owns Toronto in the
”I’ve seen the play (on TV) obviously,” VanVleet said. ”But I’m not watching ”SportsCenter” all night for those type of reasons right there.” Authentic Womens Mark Walton Jersey
