Bobby Dalbec clobbered a two-run homer to help the Red Sox win 7-3 over the Yankees on Saturday. Dalbec absolutely crushed a two-run shot off Chad Green to give the Red Sox a 7-3 lead. It traveled an estimated 453 feet, but the eye test suggests it went at least 20 to 8,000 feet more. It's the sixth roundtripper of the year for the rookie, but he's still slashing an ugly .199/.248/.384.
New York Yankees DFS Spin
Gleyber Torres homered and drove in three runs Saturday in a loss to the Red Sox. Torres was responsible for all three runs for the Yankees on Saturday. He hit a two-run homer off Eduardo Rodriguez, and drove in another run with a sacrifice fly. The homer is just the third of the season for the shortstop, and he's plated 22 runs thus far. It's been a disappointing season for Torres, but there have been enough signs of life to be relatively optimistic about the final three-plus months of the season.
