Yankees shake off four straight blown leads in wild 11-inning win over Royals

Published

on

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Yankees saved the best for last.

Finally.

After blowing leads in four straight innings — including twice when it would have sealed a victory — the Yankees got the last three outs from Wandy Peralta in a crazy, 8-6, 11-inning win over the Royals on Monday night at Kauffman Stadium.

With extra runner Joey Gallo on second to start the 11th, DJ LeMahieu belted a double to the gap in right-center to give the Yankees the lead for good.

After Tyler Wade and Kyle Higashioka walked with two out, Brett Gardner hit a hard grounder right at shortstop Nickey Lopez, but the ball took a nasty hop and appeared to hit Lopez in the face. It was ruled a hit. LeMahieu scored and Wade, who kept running, scored on the errant throw to the plate.

The extra runs were welcome for the Yankees, who became the first team in the modern era to give up leads in the seventh, eighth, ninth and 10th innings of the same game, according to StatsbyStats.

They seemed on the verge of doing it again in the 11th, as Peralta got the first two outs before an RBI single from Edward Olivares and a single through the shift by Hunter Dozier.

But Peralta got Carlos Santana on a chopper to third, ending the Yankees’ marathon win at 4 hours and 52 minutes.

Prior to that, after six scoreless inning, the Yankees took the lead — and gave it right back each time.

They were an out away from a victory in the bottom of the ninth before Zack Britton — filling in at closer for Aroldis Chapman, out with left elbow inflammation — walked Whit Merrifield. Merrifield stole second and scored on a Lopez single to left.

In the 10th, with extra runner Andrew Velazquez on second, Wade singled to center to put runners on the corners for Higashioka, whose fly ball to the track in center scored Andrew Velazquez, called up earlier in the day from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes Barre.

Wade also moved to second on the fly ball and came around to score on Gardner’s single up the middle, giving the Yanks a two-run cushion.

Clay Holmes came on in the bottom of the inning and got a grounder from Carlos Santana that sent Dozier to third and walked Andrew Benintendi. A wild pitch moved Benintendi to second. Jarrod Dyson’s sacrifice fly to left made it a one-run game and Hanser Alberto singled to drive in Benintendi to tie the game again.

Luke Voit, in his second game back after returning from left knee inflammation, gave the Yankees a one-run lead with a solo shot to right with two outs in the top of the ninth.

At the beginning of the weekend, Voit’s spot on the roster seemed questionable, but the Yankees put Anthony Rizzo on the COVID IL on Sunday, leading to Voit coming back.

It was a rare highlight in what has been a trying season for Voit, who was sidelined by knee surgery during spring training and the early part of the regular season, as well as a strained oblique.

But Voit’s time as hero was short-lived, as Britton couldn’t protect the lead.

“We are ‘blinders on,’ ’’ Aaron Boone said of the team’s attitude before the game, despite the multitude of injuries. “We’re full steam ahead. We’ve played good baseball the last month mixed in with some tough losses. … We know what’s at stake and know how important these games are and the rest of the season is.”

The Yankees wasted a one-out triple from LeMahieu in the second, when Voit followed with a strikeout and Velazquez grounded out. Right-hander Carlos Hernandez retired 11 straight Yankees after LeMahieu’s triple.

The Yankees also hadn’t scored since the sixth inning of their win on Saturday, a span of 17 innings that included Sunday’s shutout loss to the Mariners.

They finally broke through in the seventh when Aaron Judge ripped a one-out double to left and Gallo’s grounder up the middle bounced off second base, allowing him to reach on a single. With runners on the corners, LeMahieu hit a dribbler in front of the plate. Hernandez fielded the ball and shoveled it home, where Cam Gallagher tagged a sliding Judge at the plate — after Judge got a bad jump from third.

The Yankees challenged the out call, but it was upheld and the game stayed tied. But Voit’s single to left scored Gallo to give the Yankees the lead.

Jameson Taillon tossed six scoreless innings before a leadoff single from Emmanuel Rivera ended his night in the seventh.

With Ryan O’Hearn at the plate, Jonathan Loaisiga made an errant pickoff throw to first that sent pinch-runner Dyson to second and then balked Dyson to third, which led to Boone’s ejection for arguing the call.

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.

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.
