NEW YORK (AP) He sat in the upper deck, basically unrecognized amid a sea of happy baseball fans.

Offense wasn't a problem over the weekend for the New York Yankees despite the absence of two sluggers from the starting lineup. One will return Monday night while the other may not.

NEW YORK (AP) David Ortiz got a good, close-up look at the New York Mets' young rotation this weekend and was impressed. The Boston slugger left his own impression, too.

NEW YORK (AP) If this had been a playoff game, New York Mets manger Terry Collins would have let Matt Harvey pitch one more inning. But it wasn't, so he took his ace out after the sixth. Harvey, throwing for the first time in 11 days after the NL East leaders skipped his turn in an effort to manage his innings, blanked Boston on two singles and struck o
NEW YORK (AP) Boston Red Sox rookie catcher Blake Swihart will tell you that he's never hit an inside-the-park home run, even if the record books now reflect the contrary. Swihart led off the 10th inning with an inside-the-parker and the Red Sox stopped the New York Mets' seven-game winning streak, holding on for a 6-4 victory Friday night. The Red
NEW YORK (AP) Boston pitcher Clay Buchholz is done for the season because of a strained flexor muscle in his right elbow, and his health is the key to whether the Red Sox pick up the option on his 2016 contract. The 31-year-old Buchholz hasn't pitched since the All-Star break. He's on the 60-day disabled list and has been cleared to resume throwing
