91 pitches through six for Cole. Doesn't have his usual swing and miss stuff but he's done just fine regardless. 1 R 5 H 1 BB 4 K

And it's Urshela breaking this one open tonight. Three-run HR in the sixth gives Yankees a 6-1 lead

Jay Bruce improves to 8 for 26 with two HR in his career vs. Cole

Judge 2 for 2 so far tonight. Off to an 11 for 33 start this season

Well, this is less than ideal. Tarp coming on the field

Still raining in the Bronx but some activity from the grounds crew near the tarp so we could be inching toward resuming at some point tonight.

Sabathia said in his big league career "I've never been called the N word" anywhere but in Boston

Sabathia said it's talked about among black major leaguers: "we know. There's 62 of us. We all know. When you go to Boston, expect it."

Jason Kipnis on Bautista's shaking-in-his-boots comments regarding Ryan Merritt: "That’s why you don’t say dumb s**t." #ALCS 

And, at last, the official end of the great MLB sign-stealing scandal
