Yankees win 99th and get Severino back, but lose Betances
The Yankees had an up-and-down night.
On the bright side: the Yankees saw ace Luis Severino make his season debut. He pitched well, as our Mike Axisa detailed, holding the Angels scoreless through four innings while permitting just two hits and striking out four and walking two. The Yankees were able to touch up a tattered Angels pitching staff and ended up winning their 99th game of the season by an 8-0 margin.
Unfortunately, after the game manager Aaron Boone announced reliever Dellin Betances had suffered a partially torn Achilles tendon during his season debut on Sunday. .
Red Sox, Giants play marathon game
The two sides combined to tie a record for pitchers used. That's just one of the stats you need to know from the 15-inning, nearly 6-hour long contest that didn't wrap up until Wednesday morning..
Biggio hits for cycle, makes history
Blue Jays rookie Cavan Biggio hit for the sixth cycle of the season on Tuesday. He and his father, Craig, also made a little history..
Twins win on a walk-off HBP
You can read more about the Twins' topsy-turvy victory over the White Sox by. Just know that the game ended on a hit batsman.
Woodruff returns for Brewers, who keep up winning ways
Woodruff, for his part, tossed two scoreless frames against the Padres as part of a Brewers win. He fanned four batters and walked just one before being relieved by Gio Gonzalez.
The Brewers have now won four in a row and 11 of their last 12. With the Cubs' loss against the Reds, the Brewers are tied for the second wild card spot.
Snell also returns
As for Snell, we'll keep this brief because he made an abbreviated start on Tuesday as well. He threw two perfect innings against the Dodgers. Seventeen of his 26 pitches went for strikes and he fanned four batters.
The Rays need a healthy Snell if they're to make a real run into October.
Twins make homer history
The Twins entered the night leading the majors in home runs, which meant they held the single-season record on a team-level as well. Not yet satisfied, the Twins then made more homer history as Miguel Sano became the fifth Minnesota hitter to top 30 dingers this year. Click here to read more about that accomplishment -- .
Highlight of the day: Yaz homers at Fenway
Mike Yastrzemski, the grandson of Red Sox legend Carl, made his Fenway Park debut on Tuesday night. Predictably, because that's just how Baseball Works sometimes, Yastrzemski hit what was his 20th home run of the season..
Stat of the day: Gray eclipses Ryan
At least in one sense, Sonny Gray has topped Nolan Ryan. On Tuesday, he made his 32nd consecutive start in which he permitted fewer than six hits. That's the longest such streak in history, and pulls him out of a tie with the aforementioned Ryan:
Credit Gray (and the Reds) for doing a fine spoil job on Tuesday. The Cubs' loss not only ruined an at-times impressive start from Yu Darvish (at one point he'd struck out eight batters in a row), but reduced the Cubs to a tie with the Brewers for the second wild card spot.
- Red Sox general manager Dave Dombrowski was .
- Pirates closer Felipe Vazquez was arrested on charges of child solicitation, and reportedly placed on administrative leave by MLB.
- Marcell Ozuna and Nicholas Castellanos will help decide the NL Central race;
- Jason Kipnis needs season-ending surgery and his long tenure with the Indians is likely over.
