But Martinez got just enough of the ball to loft it over the short porch in right field for his ninth homer of the year (fifth to the opposite field) and the eventual winning run. For starters, Luis Severino was one of the pitchers that people were highly concerned about.

After a 55-minute delay, the game resumed, with Sabathia replaced by Jonathan Holder.

No matter, he got two strikeouts and a groundout. The Yankees rallied late each night. They did have some help this time.

NY rallied in the seventh while Boston's seemingly comfortable lead burned, as Heath Hembree and Kelly combined to allow four runs on a single hard-hit ball.

Joe Kelly (2-0), who served a six-game suspension for hitting the Yankees' Tyler Austin with a pitch last month, was booed loudly when he entered. Aaron Judge would single before Didi Gregorius would cut the lead to 4-3 with a knubber that went for a fielder's choice.

The tie didn't last long.

Judge reached over the fence, and a spectator's glove touched his.

Porcello is 5-0 with a 2.14 ERA and was originally slated to start Thursday. He fanned 12 in the quality start. "It's blinders on. We're playing good baseball, doing it in a lot of different ways". The Giants, meanwhile, went into this series with the Phillies having won 11 times in their previous 14 games. "If you're not on top of your game, you're in some trouble against us".

That's the first career grand slam for the youngster and it opened the proverbial floodgates. No matter what he accomplished, no matter how many mammoth homers he hit, the end result was the same. They hit te road to take on the Philadelphia Phillies tonight.

"The three games felt like the championship series previous year", he said. Porcello has won his last seven decisions since September 10. While the pitching has done well, there are other areas that are deserved to get credit. A streak has to start with three. Kelly threw a called third strike past Neil Walker to end the inning with two on - the seventh Yankees batter caught looking as NY repeatedly questioned the strike zone of plate umpire Stu Scheurwater. Thursday, they beat the Royals for their second straight win.

If the Yankees win Thursday, it'll mark their fourth sweep in their past five series.

We saw on Wednesday night in the Yankees thrilling comeback win when after Walker led off with a double Andujar set up the tying run with a routine ground ball to second to move him over to third with one out.
