Jackie Bradley makes ridiculous catch to rob Aaron Judge of home run

July 17, 2017

But in the eighth inning, with the Sox up 3-0, Judge very almost cut New York's deficit to a single run.

"Once I saw him start timing it, I figured he had a chance to catch it". And he would have hit his 31st Sunday night if not for a stunning play by Bradley. "It made the hair stand up on my arms".

Despite the near-clutch home run, Judge struggled overall in the four-game series, going just 1-for-18 (.056) and striking out six times.

CC Sabathia allowed two hits over six innings in the opener, and Didi Gregorius hit a solo home run to give NY a 3-0 victory.

Price allowed a one-out single to center to Gary Sanchez before Aaron Judge came to the plate. Bradley tracked the ball and dashed toward the short outfield wall. It was hit where the wall height trends taller to right-center field, making it more hard for an outfielder to reach.

Price finished off the inning with a strikeout of Matt Holliday.

"It was special", Bradley said.

One night after giving up a tying homer in the ninth, Craig Kimbrel pitched the ninth for his 24th save.

"Personally, I don't agree with the way [Joe Maddon] used me, but he is the manager, and he has the strategy", Chapman said through an interpreter in December, according to Andrew Marchand of ESPN.

Betts' two-out homer in the third inning snapped a stretch of 24 consecutive scoreless innings for Boston. He made it 3-0 when he singled to lead off the sixth, took second on an error by second baseman Starlin Castro, third on a groundout and scored on Dustin Pedroia's second hit of the game.

Acquired as part of last season's Andrew Miller trade, Heller and his new No. 41 struck out three batters in two innings for the win.

Chapman's weekend against the Red Sox couldn't have had a worse start, blowing Friday night's one-run lead in the ninth and walking in the winning run.

In the makeup of an April 25 postponement, the Red Sox hit just four balls out of the infield and extended their scoreless streak to 22 innings. The 2016 AL Cy Young victor leads the major leagues in losses despite making his 17th consecutive start of six innings or more. They've won seven times in 26 games since. "He came up big". He settled in against Red Sox lefty David Price.

While the Sox have not had a significant problem with runners in scoring position most of this season, wasted scoring opportunities have been a pinstriped boogeyman against NY.
