Alex Cora didn't like Yankees coach Phil Nevin 'screaming at me'

As his New York Yankees faced a dominant Chris Sale on Tuesday night, Aaron Judge strode to the plate with one primary objective: attack the pitcher early. He went 2-for-3 with two walks and two runs scored in Tuesday's blowout victory but he'll sit against Tanaka.

Per Forbes' Mike Ozanian, the Yankees lead all Major League Baseball teams with a $4 billion valuation.

Stanton had been hitting.196 with 22 strikeouts in 46 at bats so far this season. In addition, he singled, walked and reached on an error while bunting. The battle between the two teams this season will be entertaining, no doubt.

NY went into the middle game of this series losers of four of their last five after they were demolished by Boston. Teammate Wilmer Flores pulled an RBI double and a solo homer. The inning ended 10 batters later with Andrew Benintendi grounding out to second. He will carry a 2.92 ERA and a 0.73 WHIP into tonight's matchup against the Red Sox. It was his 25th career homer in the ninth inning or later. He hit Jackie Bradley Jr. with the first pitch to load the bases, then Christian Vazquez followed with a ground ball that Miguel Andujar botched at third, allowing Martinez to score on the error.

Luis Severino may have tipped his pitches vs. Roberto Osuna pitched a flawless ninth for his fifth save of the season, the 100th save of his career, becoming the youngest pitcher ever to reach the milestone. The bullpen was torched for nine runs in the sixth, though only three were earned, to put the game away. NY had 10 hits but mustered only one run as they went 0 for 5 with runners in scoring position.

Those are the areas expected to be the Yankees' strength this season and perhaps for the first time in 2018 they synchronized their excellence to help the team get back to.500 and hand the Red Sox their first loss since Opening Day.

Indians 2, Tigers 1: Roberto Perez hit a go-ahead solo homer in the eighth inning, lifting Cleveland over visiting Detroit.

Perhaps the most important stat for Porcello in the early going is zero: that's the number of homers he's allowed in his first two starts. He owns an even better ERA pitching at Fenway, posting a 2.45 mark in his last five starts in Boston. High Scoring, long game that features a bench-clearing brawl.

It was the only one Sale gave up.

So you have to forgive the 25-year-old for showing a little emotion on first base when he ripped a one-out single to left field in the first inning.
