Yankees’ Jordan Montgomery blanks Rays

Published

on

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — For a second straight outing, Jordan Montgomery blanked one of the better teams in the AL East.

The left-hander tossed five scoreless innings in the Yankees’ 4-3 win over the Rays on Tuesday night, one start after a 5 ²/₃ scoreless inning outing in Boston.

Montgomery attributed his recent success with “trying to think less.”

“When I’m out there aggressive and competing, I feel I’m one of the better pitchers in the league,’’ he said. “Then my mind gets in the way and I try to do too much.”

That wasn’t the case at Tropicana Field on Tuesday, although Montgomery had to work hard, throwing 51 pitches in the first two innings and 102 through five.

He has allowed three or fewer runs in seven straight starts, even as the Yankees have struggled to score behind him.

“Every five days, I expect to win,’’ Montgomery said.


Clint Frazier spent Monday and Tuesday undergoing a battery of neurological tests, as the Yankees try to determine what’s wrong with the left fielder, who has been on the injured list since July 2.

Manager Aaron Boone said the team hopes to know more Wednesday. Boone added the issue “doesn’t seem to be” related to the concussion symptoms that have plagued Frazier in the past.

When Frazier first went on the IL, the Yankees said it was due to vertigo, which has since been ruled out. A vision issue still hasn’t been ruled out, according to Boone.


Estevan Florial, who showed flashes of good play, was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday.


Clay Holmes was available out of the bullpen Tuesday, but did not pitch. The right-hander was acquired Monday in a trade with the Pirates, in exchange for minor league infielders Hoy Jun Park and Diego Castillo.

“We’re excited to get him. We feel he already is very tough on righties and feel he has the stuff to go to another place,” Boone said of the 28-year-old.

While Holmes has been effective against righty hitters, his overall numbers are underwhelming.

“He’s a lot better than his ERA [4.93] would suggest,’’ Boone said of Holmes. “He has a really good arm and gives us a really interesting look.”

Boone called Holmes a “righty assassin” and said they “feel there’s room in there for him to grow into a really good reliever in this game.’’

Among the reasons the Yankees felt the need to get bullpen help is the absence of right-hander Michael King, who has been out with a middle-finger contusion suffered while lifting weights, and was transferred to the 60-day IL. Boone said King saw a hand specialist Tuesday, still has another week of not throwing and could begin a throwing program next week.


Right-hander Albert Abreu was optioned to Triple-A.


Kyle Higashioka returned off the COVID-19 IL Tuesday and will likely catch Gerrit Cole on Thursday, Boone said. The manager pointed to Thursday being a day game after a night game and a way to get Gary Sanchez a day off. Wednesday’s scheduled starter, Nestor Cortes Jr., said he thought he could throw 50-60 pitches in what will be his second appearance, and first start, since coming back from the COVID-19 IL.


Luis Severino threw another bullpen session Tuesday, with the Yankees still weighing his next step. Severino could throw another live batting practice or begin a rehab assignment in the minors. The team also has to determine how much to build Severino back up, whether to bring him up once he gets to 50-60 pitches or wait until he’s at or near starter’s endurance.


Yoendrys Gomez, a 21-year-old right-hander, became the latest Low-A Tampa player to be placed on the COVID-19 IL. Gomez is on the 40-man roster.

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.

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.
