Yankees’ Joey Gallo belts homer after Aaron Boone keeps him in No. 2 hole

Published

on

Joey Gallo needed that one, even if the Yankees couldn’t pull off another late victory over the Orioles.

Gallo remained in the No. 2 spot in the batting order Saturday despite a 1-for-20 skid that had dropped his overall batting average for the season to .199 — and just .134 since he was acquired from the Rangers in July.

Gallo rewarded Aaron Boone’s confidence with a game-tying, two-run homer in the eighth inning before the Yankees ultimately fell, 4-3, to Baltimore at the Stadium.

“That was pretty big for me individually. Things obviously haven’t been going great for me,” said Gallo, who was 1-for-4 with two RBIs. “It’s part of the game, and I’m learning how to deal with that and keep pushing every day. It was good to get a little bit of a result in a pretty big situation. Hopefully I can build off that.”

Despite Gallo’s prolonged slump, Boone said the Yankees still view the lefty slugger as a good fit between leadoff batter DJ LeMahieu and sluggers Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton. Gallo had gone 0-for-4 in Friday’s 11-inning victory, with three strikeouts and a first-pitch pop-up with the winning run on third and one out in the 10th inning.

“I thought he was maybe a little jumpy in his last couple of bats [Friday] night. Probably wanted to get that result, you know,” Boone said. “So really it’s just making sure the focus is on the quality of the at-bats, and trust in that and then trust when you are having those at-bats, the results are going to be there.”


Gleyber Torres was out of the starting lineup after going 0-for-4 in his return from a thumb injury Friday night. Gary Sanchez also didn’t start after playing the previous night. Both players entered as pinch-hitters in the seventh inning. Torres had an RBI infield single before striking out to end the game in the ninth, and Sanchez went 0-for-2.


Gio Urshela (wrist) sat out his third straight game but worked out on the field before the game and said he hopes to play Sunday.


Domingo German (shoulder) threw a bullpen session Friday, and he’s scheduled for another one Monday, Boone said. The manager still believes German and Luis Severino (shoulder stiffness) have time to have an impact on the Yankees in September.

“I think there’s time, but it might be cutting it close in some cases,” Boone said. “Sevy’s doing well but, not quite ready to get on the mound yet. Domingo throwing [Friday], and is obviously, closer than when he was last in action. So they can impact this, whether it’s out of the bullpen and shorter stints, whether it’s giving us bulk. … We’ll see how their progression goes and see at what point they’re able to help us and in what role.”


Corey Kluber will make his second start Sunday after returning from the injured list by allowing five runs in four innings — including a grand slam by Jack Mayfield — in Monday’s 8-7 loss to the Angels.

“I think the first few innings of the last one were good, but avoiding big innings is important especially at this level,” Kluber said. “If I don’t make a bad pitch with the bases loaded, maybe it’s a different story.

“But ultimately I did. It’s just trying to minimize mistakes as much as possible. I felt like I executed pitches pretty well aside from a couple in the fourth inning, and ultimately the biggest one.”

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.
