Red Sox and Yankees fined in sign-stealing spat

Red Sox and Yankees fined in sign-stealing spat

The Yankees complained to Major League Baseball that the Red Sox were relaying signs from the Yankee catchers to the Red Sox hitters with the use of an Apple Watch worn in the dugout by a trainer.

As insane as it was - the teams combined to use 31 position players, the Rays tied an American League record by using 12 pitchers, there were 541 pitches thrown and 29 runners left on base, Dustin Pedroia became the second Red Sox player ever to go 0-for-9 in a game - it seemed entirely familiar to Boston.

"This has been a concern of mine for a long time", Joe Girardi said.

Rafael Devers of the Red Sox tosses his bat after hitting a two-run home run against the Yankees on August 18, 2017, at Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts.

Ryon Healy hit his 25th home run of the season, but after taking a one-run lead into the bottom of the fifth inning, the wheels came off and the Red Sox scored one in the fifth, two in the sixth and three in the seventh inning.

The Red Sox offense isn't exactly cruising into the postseason. Meanwhile, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports went as far to say that if he was calling the shots, he would've had the Red Sox forfeit all of their games against the Yankees.


Austin Pruitt (7-5) walked Bradley to lead off the 15th.

"I knew Jackie hit it well and it was just one of those things where I needed to make that catch and I wanted to preserve the game", Kiermaier said.

Xander Bogaerts followed with a single. For the season against Boston, he is 1-1 with a 10.80 ERA.

"Anytime you're up 5-2 going into the ninth you feel pretty good", said Rays manager Kevin Cash. "(Colome) couldn't find it. It is clearly a career year for Pomeranz, who is 9-1 with a 2.61 ERA in 16 starts since June 16. Mark Canha doubled home the first A's run and had three hits - his second three-hit game of the season against Boston.

Manfred's penalty was toothless for a franchise worth billions of dollars, and time will tell whether the get-out-of-jail free card will embolden other teams to try (or continue) to do the same - and whether they'll take the commissioner's warning against future violations any more seriously than a teenager who gets off with a warning. "It's nice being able to sit here now after the fact, but winning this game boosts the morale". Mitch Moreland went 3 for 7 with a solo home run and two RBIs.
