JD Martinez embraces the hate from Yankee fans following devastating tiebreaking homer

JD Martinez embraces the hate from Yankee fans following devastating tiebreaking homer

J.D. Martinez hit a tiebreaking home run against Dellin Betances leading off the eighth inning, just beyond Aaron Judge's reach at the right-field wall, and the Red Sox escaped NY with the victory that handed the Yankees only their second loss in 19 games.

"I hit it, and I was like blowing, praying, doing everything I can to push it over", Martinez said. "I knew it had a chance", Martinez said after the game.

It seems like when this Yankee team find themselves in a hole after struggling all game against a really good starting pitcher that they turn their focus up once they get into the bullpen.

Don't worry about the Sox closer escaping NY clean and free.

With a strong slider and deceiving changeup, Eduardo Rodriguez kept the Yankees to just one hit and three walks while striking out eight in five innings and lowering his ERA to 4.58. "If you go out there and something happens, you end up missing five starts, vs. skipping one and making sure everything is fine". Cora called upon Kelly to try and get out the mess, but he couldn't deliver.

After the Yankees tie things up in the seventh, JD Martinez takes the lead back for the Red Sox with his ninth home run of the season.

It is worth noting Kelly did bounce back with a scoreless eighth following Martinez's homer, and Kimbrel earned the save against the top of the Yankees order, but the prior inning can not be dismissed.

"Just being in right field, I've been chirped at before out here, but it was a little bit extra this time around", Martinez said.

During this streak, the Yankees have outscored opponents 101-39 with 50 runs scoring in the seventh inning or later. The guys grinded it out, honestly.

That's a huge sign of what this Yankee team can do moving forward and into October because those are some of the relievers they're going to have to go through to make it to the World Series. But then the streaky Gardner collected three hits (two doubles and a triple). For the Yankees, there's Judge and Stanton and Didi and Sanchez and more. He didn't come up with the ball and crashed into the wall, rupturing his right patellar tendon in the process and needing to undergo season-ending surgery. You're going to have up and down.

Porcello last pitched in Friday's 5-1 victory at Texas when he allowed one run and three hits in six innings.

Not much for Cora to go to right now.

Red Sox: RHP Tyler Thornburg, coming back from surgery last June 16 to correct thoracic outlet syndrome, made his fifth minor league rehab appearance.

The man batting first can be the best spark plug for any team, and Gardy is back to being that guy for the Yankees.
