The Doubledays picked up their league-leading ninth shutout of the season with a 2-0 victory over the Spikes on Friday night. Oliver Ortiz hit a two-run home run for the Doubledays en route to the win.
The slow jogs have almost become a nightly event for Gary Sanchez, who insists that he doesn't hear a thing while making that 360-foot trip around the basepaths. If so, the rookie might be the only one not caught up in an exciting display that has kept the Yankees in the postseason chase.
Gary Sanchez continued a sensational opening act to his big league career on Friday, homering among his three hits and driving in four runs to help the Yankees trounce the Orioles, 14-4, at Yankee Stadium.

The race for the American League East and AL Wild Card spots will continue in the Bronx on Saturday afternoon, with two teams pushing for a playoff berth putting their trust in rookie starting pitchers.

Fans in attendance for Friday's matchup between Class A Lake County and Lansing were treated to a pitchers' duel between starters Triston McKenzie and Ryan Borucki, who combined for 11 scoreless innings and 18 strikeouts.
Joe Girardi won his 800th game as the Yankees' manager on Wednesday afternoon. But Girardi's reaction to achieving that milestone says a lot about where he finds his club after a road trip in which New York won four of six, taking two of three apiece in Anaheim and Seattle.
As if the monstrous upper-deck home run on the first pitch he saw or the scalded double down the left-field line, or the two homers in the first game of this series weren't enough, the first thing the traveling band of Yankees reporters wanted to hear about was how a 23-year-old catcher with 21 games of Major League experience could get walked intentionally twice in one game.
Masahiro Tanaka threw seven shutout innings and Gary Sanchez homered yet again in the Yankees' 5-0 victory over the Mariners Wednesday afternoon to close the series in Seattle. With its second consecutive win, New York took the three-game set.
CC Sabathia got back on track and Jacoby Ellsbury hit a two-run home run to open up a close game en route to a 5-1 Yankees win over the Mariners on Tuesday night at Safeco Field. The Yankees evened the three-game series at a game apiece and knocked the Mariners back to two games out of the second American League Wild Card spot.
When the Yankees traded for Didi Gregorius to replace Derek Jeter at shortstop and later signed Starlin Castro to play second base, they knew what they were getting: solid defense and the potential to supplement those gloves with occasional offense.
Not even a pair of home runs apiece by the Yankees' Gary Sanchez and Starlin Castro could derail the Mariners on Monday night at Safeco Field as Seattle rode a pair of three-run blasts by Kyle Seager and Mike Zunino to a 7-5 series-opening win.
Chad Green didn't have a feel for his cutter on Sunday, but he didn't need it to hold the Angels to just one run in six innings. Unfortunately for the rookie, that one run was all the Angels needed as they handed the Yankees a 2-0 loss in the finale of the weekend series.

Less than 24 hours after Brett Gardner went horizontal to rob the Angels of a homer, Jacoby Ellsbury made a leaping grab of his own over the center-field wall to rob Albert Pujols of a historic home run.
The nerves were with him the whole time, but as Luis Cessa took the mound for his first start with the Yankees and threw that first pitch to Kole Calhoun, it all faded away. Cessa would go on to throw six-plus scoreless innings and insert his name into the list of young Yankees to know.
On a night when the Angels inducted a 17-year Major League veteran into their Hall of Fame, it was the Yankees' youth movement that stole the show. The Yankees once again got major contributions from a number of rookies and rolled to a 5-1 win over the Angels on Saturday at Angel Stadium.
Home runs came for the Yankees from both the top and bottom of the lineup, plus multiple places in between, as they shut out the Angels, 7-0, on Friday night at Angel Stadium to open a three-game series.
Friday's series opener at Angel Stadium was the first time Masahiro Tanaka and rookie catcher Gary Sanchez teamed up, and the new combination worked out pretty well, as Tanaka threw 7 2/3 impressive innings in a 7-0 runaway win over the Angels.
When J.A. Happ pitches well, the Blue Jays win. When the offense shows off its potential, the Blue Jays win. When both happen, that's just a good day. After scoring 12 unanswered runs in Tuesday's victory, the Toronto offense picked up right where it left off Wednesday afternoon, getting runners on base at a high rate and beating the Yankees, 7-4.
It happened in an instant, a pair of home runs sailing over the wall at Yankee Stadium. In that moment with a packed house rocking the ballpark in that old, familiar way, Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner could see a bright and shiny new vision of his team take shape.
At first glance, it will look like the Yankees' 7-4 loss to the Blue Jays on Wednesday was mostly on CC Sabathia. He allowed seven earned runs, after all. Sabathia did make mistakes, like the 0-1 sinker that Melvin Upton Jr. deposited over the right-field wall in the fifth. But before that, Sabathia was the unlucky recipient of some questionable defense that allowed Toronto to claim easy bases.
In need of another storybook run as they look to scale the National League Wild Card standings, the Mets on Friday turned to a player best known for his flair for the dramatic. Wilmer Flores slugged his third career grand slam, Asdrubal Cabrera and Jose Reyes combined for three additional homers and Bartolo Colon cruised, leading the Mets to a 9-4 win over the Phillies at Citi Field.
On a day when the Mets announced that they will skip Jacob deGrom's next start because of mechanical issues, Mets manager Terry Collins couldn't provide enough praise for Friday's starter Bartolo Colon, the lone pitcher in New York's rotation who hasn't dealt with any sort of lingering issue this season.
Jose Reyes and Asdrubal Cabrera opened the bottom of the first inning of the Mets' 9-4 win on Friday with back-to-back homers off Phillies starter Adam Morgan, marking just the second time in franchise history the Mets have opened a game with consecutive dingers.
Concerned about Jacob deGrom's consecutive poor starts, the Mets spent this week digging into the Trackman technology available to them at ballparks around the country, hoping to spot the root cause of their ace's struggles. Coming away convinced that deGrom's issues are mechanical, not health-related, the team will spend the next 10 days attempting to fix them.
If the Mets plan to make a late postseason push, Noah Syndergaard (11-7, 2.61 ERA) will likely need to play a big role. After a string of inconsistent outings, the big righty tossed eight shutout innings vs. the Giants on Aug. 21 for his 11th win of the season. The Phillies hope to halt that momentum Saturday.
Neil Walker hasn't had much sleep over the last three days, but he wouldn't trade those restless days for anything. Over that time, Walker has been on Major League Baseball's paternity list as his wife and he welcomed their first child, Nora Vail Walker, into the world at 3:06 a.m. ET on Tuesday.
A stay in St. Louis did the Mets well, as they left town following Thursday night's 10-6 victory in better National League Wild Card position than when they arrived. Capping an evening in which Seth Lugo secured his first Major League win and the offense piled on by taking advantage of a shoddy Cardinals defense, the Mets won the series and moved to within 3 1/2 games of St. Louis in the Wild Card standings.
No. 6 Syracuse's offense scored three times in the second half while the defense allowed just three shots in a 3-0 victory against Massachusetts in the season opener for both teams. The match was the first round of the Central New York Classic.
