Nunez, who hit a two-run homer Friday in Boston's 4-1 win, was asked how he would react to another team testing the mobility of a pitcher on his own team. He is attempting to join teammate Chris Sale, Milwaukee's Zach Davies, Arizona's Zack Greinke and Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw as the fifth 15-game victor in the majors.

Lin, 23, is batting.280 (14-for-50) with two triples and a.379 on-base percentage in 19 major league games this season, making six starts each at third base and shortstop and two at second base.

"I'm not looking for power", Nunez said. He has been hobbled by knee problems since getting injured by a late slide from Baltimore's Manny Machado in April.

Pomeranz is producing these results a year after an inconsistent beginning with the Red Sox following a trade from the San Diego Padres.

He deserved every bit of the expectations and praise heaped on him. "You see the life to it, you see the velocity he's able to maintain".

A Mariners 3, Athletics 2: Mike Leake threw seven innings in his Seattle debut, helping snap a five-game losing streak with a victory over visiting Oakland.

Three straight one-out singles by Brett Gardner, Hicks and Sanchez gave the Yankees a 2-1 lead in the fifth, with an assist from ex-Yankee Eduardo Nunez. He was activated from his second DL stint this year on Friday, but sat out a 4-1 loss. Because on certain nights, the Yankees can make Doug Fister look like Cy Young.

GOD HAS A PURPOSE FOR OUR LIVES ...: ON PENTECOSTALISM (HOLY SPIRIT, GOD'S GOD FOR MEN)
Say: "I am Pentecostal," that is, "I identify with what happened on the Day of Pentecost and believe what there and then believed. Therefore, every true Pentecostal must be baptized and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ.

Either way, in the history of the Yankees-Red Sox rivalry, this bunting scandal barely registers as a blip on the radar. He joined Jim Rice, who did it in 1983.

Nunez followed by lining a fastball over the wall in left for his combined 12th home run of the season with San Francisco and Boston.

A Diamondbacks 9, Rockies 5: Taijuan Walker struck out a career-high 10, and Arizona won at Colorado.

Doug Fister (3-7, 4.53 ERA) gets the start for Boston, while NY will go with Sonny Gray (8-8, 3.26). Called up on Aug 2nd, Benintendi was one of the best Red Sox players down the stretch. He has allowed 10 hits and two walks on balls. The win over Seattle improved Tanaka to 5-3 with a 2.92 ERA in his last 11 outings.

"But I laughed", Sabathia said.

"And if I have to bunt four times in a row, I'll do it". Holliday pointed toward the Yankees dugout on his way toward first base after his 17th home run - his previous homer was July 15, a tying shot in the ninth off Red Sox closer Craig Kimbrel at Fenway Park in a game NY won in the 16th. Against Boston this season he is 4-0 with a 1.04 ERA.
