Yankees hold off Mariners as Chad Green picks up save

Published

on

SEATTLE — The Yankees looked like a dead team walking after Aroldis Chapman blew another game Sunday in the first game of their doubleheader against the Mets.

It left the Yankees at .500 and staring at a tough road trip heading into the All-Star break.

With Wednesday’s 5-4 win over the Mariners at T-Mobile Park, the Yankees have since won three straight for the first time in three weeks.

But they didn’t use Chapman to close the game, instead going to Chad Green in the ninth for the save.

After Jonathan Loaisiga threw a scoreless eighth, Green was summoned in the ninth — on a night Aaron Boone said before the game Chapman was available.

“I just felt like in my gut that’s what the game called for right there,’’ Boone said of his decision to go with Green, whom he thought he would stay away from after the right-hander threw a combined 37 pitches in Sunday’s doubleheader.

“Green’s throwing the ball incredibly well and in a one-run game there, with [Chapman] coming off [24] pitches [Tuesday] night, make sure it’s a situation we feel really good about.”

They clearly don’t feel really good about Chapman, though Boone said they intend to get him back into a closer’s role.

The manager added, “There’s no question in my mind” Chapman will return to the dominant form he showed earlier in the season.

Green whiffed two of the three batters he faced in picking up his third save of the year.

“Those last three outs are different,’’ Green said of closing games. “It doesn’t matter who’s up or what you’ve done in the past, it’s just different.”

For the Yankees to get to a save situation took some work.

Scheduled starter Domingo German didn’t end up starting because of an emergency root canal, but he was one of five pitchers used to hold off the Mariners.

For a second straight night, the Yankees teed off on a Seattle starter in the opening inning.

On Wednesday, it was lefty All-Star Yusei Kikuchi.

After scoring three runs in the first inning on Tuesday, the Yankees did the same Wednesday, as Luke Voit had a two-out RBI single and Gleyber Torres followed with a two-run single.

The Yankees could have had another run when Gio Urshela belted a shot to the gap in left-center, but it bounced over the wall for a ground-rule double, keeping Torres at third.

Nick Nelson, making the start in place of German, was a mess in the bottom of the inning.

He hit the second batter he faced, Mitch Haniger, and walked Kyle Seager and Jake Fraley.

A wild pitch on the walk to Fraley scored Haniger to make it 3-1.

A walk to Tom Murphy ended Nelson’s night after just two-thirds of an inning.

With the bases loaded, Luis Cessa came in and got Shed Long Jr. to ground to short to keep it a two-run game.

“The game was on the line,’’ Cessa said.

Tim Locastro led off the second with a grounder through the left side of the infield that the left fielder turned into a double — his first of two on the night.

Judge then blasted a one-out homer to increase the lead to 5-1.

Cessa cruised and allowed just one hit over 3 ¹/₃ shutout innings.

“He was awesome,’’ Boone said.

German threw a scoreless fifth before the Mariners got back in the game in the sixth.

Haniger opened the bottom of the sixth with a chopper that a charging Urshela misplayed for an error.

With two on and two out, German gave up a three-run homer to bring the Mariners within a run.

But German bounced back and retired the side in order in the seventh and Loaisiga and Green finished it, as Boone called on Green rather than Chapman, who had blown leads in three straight appearances before the Yankees brought him into Tuesday’s lopsided win, when he walked the bases loaded with less-than-usual velocity.

“[Chapman’s] still our closer,’’ Judge said. “He’s still the guy I want in any big situation to close out a game.”

Published

on

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.

It has not been confirmed whether alcohol has been involved in the incident since her condition prevents doctors from performing any tests to determine if she was driving under the influence. She is currently intubated in the hospital but expected to live.

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.

The DMV also shot down such dark requests as DEADGIRL, GENOC1DE, S8TAN, DETONATE and MURDERM3.

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.

He said guidelines on what plate combinations are restricted can be found on the DMV website: https://dmv.ny.gov/learn-about-personalized-plates. Approximately 50,000 personalized and custom plates are sold per year, O’Brien said.
