A two run home run the Yankees pick up where they left off and Palmer they have a two nothing really this is heather there today good I just wonder about those days when geo or shell is not the most happy fella but regardless right now things are going pretty well for him his second to home run game in a row and he's a big catalyst for the Yankees in this offense gosh I I feel like I can bombard you with a bunch of Yankees home run numbers at some point if I crying wolf yeah yeah yeah we've heard this before yeah yeah yeah I don't know if this team can overcome some of the other great pitching in the majors and and even in the American League we're talking about the Astros specifically and and maybe the Yankees pitching isn't good enough but I do know that these bats in the postseason yeah I talk about fireworks and you make your mind did have a strong outing he's done well against dailies proponents but that's not really fair that's not really saying much the after hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS sports radio just like the Dodgers are padding their lead atop their division by the other teams that they've got but I mean what now eighteen back the diamond backs the giants it's not very fault they didn't pick of that division is just where they are you you play the schedule you're dealt but it does help it certainly does help when you're trying to the best record when you try to win the division when your padding that lead atop the division for the Yankees have now won a season high nine in a row yes thank you Orioles and blue jays and they have more wins than the Astros now in the A. L. still one win shy of the Dodgers who were idle on Thursday I only mention this because the complete opposite of what happened with Yankees red Sox and because I've been railing about the red Sox starting pitching how bad it's been and I'm I'm with Dave Dombrowski I don't think any move or combination of movies they made the trade deadline could fix it because the pitching bottom third of the majors it's been a major Achilles heel all season so it's good to see Chris sale come out and throw a jam on Thursday to to down in a slider buys back but it cost right to raise our sale gets his seven one job placement near perfect tonight any continues through eight innings Chris sale had thirteen strikeouts only allowed two heads shot out ball the red Sox did earn the shot out would you like me to tell you the latest in the wild card races I know you was this what you don't have to look it up now the Indians are within a game of the twins atop the AL central so we already talked about that series they continue to play well they've got the best record in the majors going back to the beginning of June I think was June third forty in sixteen this June third if I remember correctly the red Sox sorry hovering there hovering on the cusp of irrelevance but the World Series champs are still within five and a half of that second wild card happens to be the Tampa Bay rays that's in that spot right now it helps that they're in the same division but the red Sox are definitely running out of time after the stretch in which they lost eight a row they've no margin for error the eighties are only a half game out there right now right now it's a three D. race in the AL Indians raise ETS we'll see what happens atop the AL central but the red Sox are still at least hovering the Rangers are not that far behind me that they are about five hundred I would say does your teams right there though even with the what we say about fifty forty nine fifty games left that's asking a lot we talked awhile guards and having other teams that are part of it it's not just you and how you play those other teams have to folder for you to be the head to head and so the opportunities are not quite as prolific late in the season it's after hours here on CBS sports radio in the National League this is the one that floats my boat I love this woman if you read do you consider yourself still part of the wild card race the playoff race in general there are only four and a half out of that second wild card though they are five days below five hundred but you know what the giants are below five hundred nearly three out of the second wild card in the National League I guess if you're just looking at numbers technically they're still part of it the nationals are in that number one wild card spot brewers right now have the second wild card spot cardinals and Phillies and the Mets or I have came out they want thirteen to fourteen they didn't play on Thursday half game out of the wild card was not long ago they were eleven games that are five hundred I still I could say it like eight more times and it still boggles my mind or is there a size beds it's mind boggling Lee every single time he tries to say that word comes out wrong mind boggling Lee mindboggling lay that's where whatever I know I say things ridiculous all the time so I'm laughing with him not at him the cubs continue to smash the ball to and what we talked about some of the pitching acquisition specifically for the Astros with Aaron Sanchez was part of it hitter also that Greg you've got his first win though he didn't pitch great in his Astros debut how bout Nick Caskey autos who's already making an impact on the north side of Chicago here's a fly ball to deep right this falls back toward the wall it's.
