Before greeting grandparents, parents, siblings and friends in the tunnel after Wednesday's game, Justus Sheffield admitted he was still trying to calm his nerves. He's still excited about his MLB debut. He even heard the Bleacher Creatures chant his name in the middle of his ninth inning. "That's how you know I wasn't really locked in," he joked. At points, he was so nervous he thought his hand was shaking and he was balking. As for the long Mookie Betts foul ball, he's known Betts (who gave him a head nod before the AB) a while. He definitely didn't want to give up a homer to him in his debut.

Luke Voit on this series with Boston: "We don't want them to clinch here. They're our rival, and we're going to try to do everything we can. We've been cold as a team, and we haven't been our New York Yankees ... (With improving health) it's scary how good this team's going to be, and we're looking to do some damage when we get to the playoffs." Added Luis Severino: "It doesn't matter what the score says. They're going to win 100-something games, we're going to be behind them. We're going to grind until the end. Every game from here out, we're going to fight until the end."

How important is it for the Yankees that Aroldis Chapman is coming off the DL? Consider this. He has 31 saves and two blown saves this season. The rest of the bullpen has blown 13 saves. New York's bullpen also had a 3.98 ERA after he went on the DL about a month ago. Prior to that, that ERA was 3.12.

Walker wakes Yanks with HR, Boston's AL East bash waits

Neil Walker hit a three-run homer, Zach Britton started a game-ending double play on New York's third try in the ninth inning and the Yankees kept the Boston Red Sox from a bubbly celebration in the Bronx for at least another night with a 3-2 victory...

With a Neil Walker's seventh-inning home run Tuesday, the Yankees have now tied the single-season MLB record for players with double-digit home runs. They are the fifth team in big-league history (and first since the 2017 Astros) to have 11 players with at least 10 homers in a year. That number doesn't include Andrew McCutchen, who has 19 total homers between his time with the Yankees and Giants. Luke Voit still has time to make it 12 players in double digits, as he has seven homers.
