RESPECT: Yankees Star Praises Jackie Bradley Jr.'s Amazing Catch


Major league home run leader Aaron Judge hit a towering fly ball toward the triangle in Fenway Park's center field, and Jackie Bradley Jr. began drifting over toward the bullpen wall.

Sometimes in sport the best efforts go unrewarded, and thanks to a phenomenal catch from Jackie Bradley Jr, Aaron Judge was the latest to experience that. Chapman's third straight appearance resulted in the Yanks' second straight win - the first time they've won back to back games in over a month.

With the win, the Red Sox moved 3-1/2 games clear of both the Yankees and Tampa Bay Rays atop the American League East.

Just an absurd grab to rob Judge of his 31st home run of the season.

David Price pitched a gem in the second game of a double header and the finale of a four-game series in which the Yankees led two games to one. Slamming a 1-1 fastball off of Craig Kimbrel, who's allowed all of four hits to right-handed hitters this season is one of those surreal moments in a season that rallies the troops.

It was the first time the Yankees have been shut out this year.

Masahiro Tanaka (7-9) took the loss after pitching 7 2/3 innings, giving up three runs, seven hits and no walks while striking out nine. He stepped up to the plate with one out and Gary Sanchez on first base.

Betts' two-out homer in the third inning snapped a stretch of 24 consecutive scoreless innings for Boston.

Running out of relievers he trusts, manager Joe Girardi turned the ball over to Jonathan Holder, who only recently returned from Triple-A. The hit was Dustin Pedroia's RBI single in the sixth, which scored Betts, who three innings earlier had ended the team's scoring drought with his 17th homer of the year.

Aroldis Chapman pitched a scoreless ninth for his ninth save of the season.

The Red Sox were obviously keen on the catch.
