#1 his first hit of the season after coming von love520 20.06.2019 07:45

NEW YORK -- All these intentional walks to David Ortiz are becoming a good move -- for Mike Napoli and the Boston Red Sox, that is. Napoli hit a grand slam right after Ortiz got a free stroll, Felix Doubront stifled the Yankees once again and the Boston Red Sox sent New York to its sixth loss in seven games, 11-1 Saturday night. Napoli has batted four times this season after intentional walks to Ortiz. Hes produced in those spots, homering twice and driving in eight runs. "My job is to be his protection," Napoli said. "I like protecting him and maybe giving managers another thought." Daniel Nava added a three-run homer in the eighth inning that emptied the crowd. The aisles were full of fans streaming to the exits by the time Nava touched the plate, and a "Lets go, Red Sox!" chant erupted when Stephen Drew homered in a three-run ninth. The Red Sox stopped Phil Hughes recent run of success against them and evened this three-game series going into Sunday nights wrapup. Boston won on a warm evening, with Yankees catcher Chris Stewart leaving after the fourth inning because of dehydration. Napolis second slam of the season capped a five-run burst in the third and followed the one-out walk to Ortiz. Stewart and shortstop Jayson Nix visited Hughes when the count reached 2-2 -- Hughes said it was to change signs -- and Napoli lined the next pitch over the right-centre fence for his fifth career slam. "Maybe a little bit of an extra challenge," Boston manager John Farrell said. "He responded well." Napoli admitted he was extra eager, and swung too hard at first. He then took a deep breath, relaxed and connected. "You got one guy thats struck out 75 times in 200 at-bats, one guy thats struck 22 times in 150 at-bats coming into this series," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "To me, youre looking for a strikeout in that situation." "Its a situation where I dont necessarily want to do it, either," he said. "I dont want to start putting people on base, but youre trying to shut down an inning. Im going to do what I think is the best thing to do. I thought the best thing to do was to try and get Napoli." The Red Sox had been outhomered by the Yankees 4-0 in their first four meetings this year. Napoli and Nava provided pop, and more -- Nava got four of Bostons 18 hits and had an RBI grounder in the ninth, Napoli had three hits. Doubront (4-2) won for the first time in five starts since his last victory on April 27. He permitted one run and six hits in six innings, striking out six. The 25-year-old lefty with the slow, big-breaking curve has a 2.52 ERA in 10 career outings against the Yankees, including four straight quality starts last year. "The adrenaline, facing those guys," he said. Robinson Cano was hitless in 12 career at-bats against Doubront before solving him for a single. The next time up, the All-Star took a wild swing and missed a 72 mph breaking ball by a lot. Hughes (2-4) was pulled in the fifth when Napoli came up. The right-hander won his final three starts against Boston last year while allowing a total of three earned runs. NOTES: Girardi said Stewart got "lightheaded" but was OK. ... Napoli hit Bostons fourth slam of the year. ... Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira singled for his first hit of the season after coming off the disabled list a day earlier. ... Red Sox CF Jacoby Ellsbury missed his second straight game because of tightness in his left groin. Farrell says he hasnt ruled out Ellsbury returning Sunday night. ... RHP Clay Buchholz (7-0, 1.73) is set to start for Boston in the series finale vs. RHP Hiroki Kuroda (6-3, 2.39). ... The Yankees will host a day-night doubleheader (1:05 p.m./7:05 p.m.) on Aug. 20 against Toronto to make up for a rainout on May 19. ... Bernando LaPallo, who says at 111 that hes the oldest Yankees fan, was on the dirt near the dugout during batting practice and injured star Derek Jeter came over to greet him. "Hit some home runs," LaPallo told Jeter. "I got to start playing first," the All-Star answered. Born on Aug, 17, 1901, LaPallo says he first saw the team in person when it was called the Highlanders and played at Hilltop Park, its home until 1912. LaPallo says he met Babe Ruth even before he played for the Yankees or Red Sox. Lakers Jerseys From China .

A look at his scorecard on the PGA.com website shows six birdies (those appear in blue), five bogeys (a light brown) and a double (a darker brown). Add it all up and it spelled a tough day for the Brantford, Ont., resident who ended his day with that double and a score of 71. After a great start to his week, Hearn has slipped each of the following two days, blaming his putter for the slide. “The bottom line is I just didnt putt well enough today,” Hearn summarized. “Hopefully I can straighten that out (Sunday) and shoot a good score, maybe even get into red numbers.” Hearns day included missing some putts from knee-knock range on eight and nine, and then coming back with a solid birdie on the 10th after hitting his approach in to about six feet. A hole later, his tee shot on the par-3 11th landed in some deep rough beside the green. He hacked it out, clanging it off the pin and dropping it into the hole for another birdie. “I was just really trying to keep that one on the green,” he admitted. “To have it go in was a bonus.” He added another birdie at the 15th but stumbled home with a bogey on the 17th before his unfortunate double at the last. Those two final holes played as the first and third toughest on the course respectively Saturday and ate up more than their fair share of players. Still, Hearn waas hoping for a better ending to his day.ddddddddddddnbsp; “Im a little disappointed in my finish,” he stated. “I had a string of birdies going on the back nine, but 17 and 18 are just playing so long. Theyre really more like par 5s. On 17, for example, I hit driver, 3-wood just to get there. Thats how long those holes are playing.” Despite that finish, it didnt take Hearn long to put it behind him. Hes able to laugh at himself for his hiccups and move on to the next challenge. It is, after all, only golf. Its his job and the way he makes his living, but he seems able to understand that getting upset over a bad finish is wasted energy. Hearn still has work to do on Sunday, a move up the leaderboard will assist him in the year-end FedEx cup playoffs. It will also put some cash in bank, which, with an $8 million purse, can be significant. Throw in some Official World Golf Ranking Points and even a few Presidents Cup points, and Sunday is an important day. “My goal for [Sunday] is to try and get into red numbers for the day and maybe even the week,” Hearn stated. “If I can put together a real nice Sunday round, shoot three or four under, I can move up into a good spot.” Even if that doesnt happen over the final 18 holes Hearn has certainly gained a lot this week. Hes taken another step in his career that has been a slow and steady climb, a climb that is proving nothing but a success. ' ' '
