Red Sox revel in owning the Yankees

Published

on

A second three-game sweep of the Yankees this month has the Red Sox back in first place in the AL East.

Boston manager Alex Cora called his team’s weekend trouncing of the Yanks “all around probably the best series we’ve played the whole season,” featuring three home runs against Gerrit Cole in Sunday’s 9-2 win at Fenway.

What’s worse was Cora’s complimentary — almost patronizing — tone when asked about the difference between this sweep of the reeling Yanks and the one the Red Sox executed in The Bronx in early June.

“I think that’s a good baseball team. You can see the quality of the at-bats are a lot better now than they were a few weeks ago. They’re getting there,” Cora said via Zoom after the Sox improved to 47-31, widening their lead over their fourth-place rivals to 6 ½ games. “When Gary [Sanchez] is swinging the bat the way he is, DJ [LeMahieu] is getting on base, they become very dangerous.

“Like even today, we never felt comfortable because you know they’re going to put quality at-bats. … Overall, for us, obviously it’s nice. But we’ll take six [wins] for right now.”

The Red Sox, who finished 24-36 and in last place in the 2020 pandemic-shortened season, continue to pound the ball with a high-powered lineup featuring sluggers Rafael Devers, J.D. Martinez and Xander Bogaerts.

After Kiké Hernandez belted Cole’s first pitch of the game for a leadoff homer, Devers clubbed a 101 mph fastball from the Yankees ace into the right-field bleachers for a three-run shot and a 4-0 lead after one inning.

“Obviously as tough a pitcher as [Cole] is, he’s a really good pitcher and someone that you can’t overlook. But he has his moments, just like all of us, ups and downs, and today we were able to get him,” Devers, who is second in MLB with 64 RBIs, said through an interpreter. “We came into this series and knew we had to handle our business, especially at home.

“We were out there being aggressive, trying to play good defense, doing what we have to do on the base paths. Overall, it was a really great series for the entire team.”

And another clunker for the Yanks, who fell to 11-12 in June. Martinez also homered against Cole as the Sox took a 6-0 lead in the third.

Aaron Judge belted a homer in the sixth for the Yanks’ only two runs off Boston starter Eduardo Rodriguez, who missed the entire 2020 season after a positive COVID-19 test and a resultant case of myocarditis (inflammation of the heart).

“It’s fun whenever we win games, it doesn’t matter who we’re facing,” Rodriguez said. “If we want to go to the playoffs and go to the World Series we know it’s not just ‘win three games against the Yankees.’

“It’s ‘win against every team in the league.’ ”

The Yanks got the tying run to the plate after loading the bases in the seventh, but former Yankees farmhand Garrett Whitlock struck out LeMahieu and retired Judge on a pop-up to escape the jam. Whitlock, selected by Boston out of the Yanks’ minor league system in the offseason Rule 5 draft, sports a 1.42 ERA through 22 appearances this season, including 5 ¹/₃ -scoreless innings against his former organization.

“Anytime we get a win against anybody it’s great, but then obviously with the history between the Red Sox and the Yankees, you love to beat the Yankees any chance you get,” Whitlock said. “To take six off them so far this year, hopefully we take a lot more than just six.”

Published

Actress Anne Heche, known for her roles in such films as Donnie Brasco, Volcano and I Know What You Did Last Summer, was involved in a fiery car crash in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles on Friday.

According to TMZ, Heche was driving a blue Mini Cooper and had first crashed into the garage of an apartment complex. Residents of the apartment complex tried to get her out of the vehicle but she backed up and sped off.

Footage of Heche speeding down the streets of her neighborhood had been obtained by TMZ as well as her initial encounter at the apartment complex.

In the first clip, you can hear her car crash towards the end. It has been reported that the actress crashed into someone’s home, causing her vehicle and the house to erupt into flames. Heche suffered severe burns and was resisting being taken away in a stretcher. You can also view footage of this via the TMZ article.

These are the vulgar license-plate requests the DMV has rejected

Published

on

Stay CL4SSY, New York!

The state Department of Motor Vehicles nixed 3,752 requests for vanity license plates in the last three years because it deemed them too raunchy, radical or simply ridiculous.

New York’s personalized plates go for $60 initially, and then $31.25 annually for renewal. You can get any plate as long as no one else has it and it’s not offensive.

Odds are a request for a plate that marks a wedding anniversary or shows your allegiance to a team — like METS86 — will pass muster with the DMV gatekeepers.

Vulgarity won’t get you to first base.

So plates with the phrase LFGM — the acronym for Pete Alonso’s “Let’s F–king Go Mets” rallying cry — did not make the cut.

And you won’t see anyone driving around with the custom plates MILFDAD, AS5M4N and WLHUNG.

Crude meanings such as “MILFDAD” are unacceptable by the DMV.

Getting political is a dead end too — FJOEBIDN, FDTRUMP and CNNLIES were nixed.

LUDEDUDE, NARCO, GOT METH and BLUNT also went up in smoke.

Staten Island attorney Bill Dertinger said his blue 1995 Jaguar SJS was tagged with ESQLTD after his company and his 2014 Porsche had the plate GHOSTGTS because the sleek sportscar was white.

“The plates can make you stand out — which can be a curse or a blessing,” the 54-year-old Dertinger said. “Make sure you don’t cut anybody off.”

There must be a New York Jets fan playing referee at the DMV because a request for the seemingly innocent plate GASE was sidelined. Ex-Jets head coach Adam Gase had an offensive 9-23 win-loss record during his forgettable two-year tenure.

The DMV would not reveal who gives the final yea or nay.

“The DMV reviews all custom license plate requests and works hard to ensure that any combinations that may be considered objectionable are rejected,” said agency spokesman Tim O’Brien.

“GLOCKS” referring to guns is not accepted by the DMV.
