He also moved into first place in the AL with 186 2/3 innings.I thought Klubes was really crisp and I thought Cody looked tremendous, Cleveland manager Terry Francona said.

Now, weve got to keep him there.Encarnacion snapped a scoreless tie with a solo drive to center off Tyler Glasnow (1-4) in the seventh. The Indians added two more in the ninth when Greg Allen scored on a wild pitch and Michael Brantley singled home Francisco Lindor.Glasnow struck out six in a career-high seven innings. He was working on a no-hitter before Melky Cabrera singled with two out in the fifth.I was really impressed with the way Tyler threw the ball, Tampa Bay manager Kevin Cash said. He was just awesome to watch and went toe to toe with arguably one of the best in the game. We couldnt get anything done offensively http://www.twinsfanproshop.com/authentic-jake-odorizzi-jersey , but Klubers numbers speak for themselves.Joey Wendle hit a leadoff single in the first and Tommy Pham singled in the fourth for Tampa Bays only hits. The Rays are 9-2 since Aug. 19, matching their best 11-game run in four years.RIVALRY RENEWEDFrancona and Cash are close friends who enjoy kidding each other.

Paul Bereswill/Getty ImagesThe New York Yankees broke the 1997 Seattle Mariners' record for the most home runs in a single season by an MLB team with a Gleyber Torres homer in the fourth inning Saturday during the Yanks' clash with the rival Boston Red Sox to give the club 265 in 2018.YES Network YESNetworkGleyber Torres connects to give the Yankees a NEW MLB RECORD - 265 home runs as a team!Also, Torres is todays No. 9 hitter Eddie Rosario Jersey , so that homer gives the Yankees at least 20 HR from each spot in the batting order this season. #BronxBombers mMYoqAJ56bThe Yankees have enjoyed a balanced power surge all season.Giancarlo Stanton leads the way with 37 home runs, but the Yanks feature six players with at least 20 homers and 12 have reached double-digits in taters. And it's fair to wonder whether they could have obliterated the record if Aaron Judge didn't miss almost 50 games because of injury.MLB Stat of the Day MLBStatoftheDay2锔忊儯6锔忊儯4锔忊儯The Yankees and 1997 Mariners now share the all-time single-season HR record. bLXpGmwRUSThe Bronx Bombers are no stranger to posting high home runs totals. The storied franchise owns six of the top 18 spots on the single-season list of most HRs by a team.Now the question is whether that type of power output will translate to postseason success.In June, Yankees manager Aaron Boone downplayed the idea the lineup was too reliant on the homers to generate offense."I think it's a silly argument, I really do," he told reporters. "Does it bother me? That does bother me Robbie Grossman Jersey , actually. If a great pitcher shuts us down, it's because a great pitcher shuts us down. He can shut down a team that doesn't hit home runs, too."New York's playoff journey begins Wednesday night when it hosts the Oakland Athletics in the American League Wild Card Game.The A's rank second in the AL in home runs, so it wouldn't be a surprise if a late-inning blast ends up making the difference in that win-or-go-home battle.
