Yankees start key road trip with blowout win over Mariners

Published

on

SEATTLE — The regular season is barely half over, but the Yankees’ future could be decided in the coming weeks, as the organization decides whether to stay all-in or to sell at the trade deadline.

Aaron Boone is aware of the stakes.

“We understand the importance of these games and the hole we dug ourselves in the first half of the season,’’ Boone said before the Yankees opened a series against the Mariners. “It’s a very important week for us and hopefully we get it off on a good note.”

A 12-1 win will suffice, though it came with another concerning outing from Aroldis Chapman, who loaded the bases in the ninth.

The Yankees pounded the Mariners from the jump, as Giancarlo Stanton crushed a three-run homer with one out in the first and they added three more runs in the second off former Yankee Justus Sheffield, who lasted just 1 ²/₃ innings.

The Yankees scored twice more in the third in support of Jameson Taillon.

Rougned Odor’s three-run shot in the eighth off former Mets prospect Rafael Montero gave the Yankees’ a season-high in both runs and hits and Luke Voit added a career-best five hits.

It was at least a temporary respite from their recent woes, which included three losses in their previous four games that dropped the Yankees to just a game over .500.

Stanton opened the scoring with his 15th homer.

“It would be a good push for us if we play this week out well and definitely hit the reset button at the break,’’ Stanton said. “We know what we need to do.”

Though general manager Brian Cashman and managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner both said last week the team was in buy mode as the July 30 non-waiver trade deadline approached, Cashman acknowledged that perspective could change “if we fall like a stone.”

Tuesday’s victory left the Yankees 9 ½ games back of first-place Boston.

“This team has what it takes,’’ Voit said. “The division is pretty far [out], but we still have 80 games to play if we get hot.”

They have two more games against Seattle at T-Mobile Park before closing out the first half with three games in Houston, facing the first-place Astros.

“I’m sure it all matters,’’ Boone said of the team’s performance as the deadline nears. “Our focus is on [the games]. That’s more for the front office to focus on what moves to make, to not make.”

And one victory doesn’t mean a turnaround is on the horizon, particularly coming off a 2-7 stretch that included a three-game sweep in Boston and losing two of three to the Mets in The Bronx.

“We’ve still got to right our ship and play our game and play to our capabilities,’’ Boone said. “I hope we’re in a position to do something to help us out, but we’ve got to earn that and play well.”

In order for that to happen, their wildly disappointing lineup needs more nights like Tuesday — as well as more starts like the one Taillon provided against Seattle.

The right-hander won his third consecutive start after an eight-start stretch in which he didn’t win a game.

In his previous outing, Taillon was mostly the beneficiary of strong run support.

But on Tuesday, he took advantage of the Yankees’ early outburst and pitched well and efficiently.

Taillon gave up one run in seven innings, his longest outing of the season, while walking just one and striking out nine.

He allowed just a pair of singles through the first five innings before the Mariners scratched out a run on three hits in the sixth.

Taillon called the first half of his season “up and down” and was encouraged by the fact he had all of his pitches working Tuesday.

“I like the direction I’m headed,’’ Taillon said.

The Yankees hope to stay headed in the same direction, as well.

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.
