Negativity among England players ‘unhealthy’ Smoke billows from roof fire of New York ferry building

Aaron Judge failed to hit a historic 61st home run, but the New York Yankees clinched a playoff berth with a 5-4 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Thursday.

Judge walked three times and came very close in the ninth inning by flying out of midfield, which means his 2022 homer score remains at 60, tied with Babe Ruth and trailing On Roger Maris’ American League (AL) record.

With a 4-4 tie in the ninth, Judge trailed a few feet for his historic 61st homer of the season and was picked up by Enrique Hernandez at midfield deep.

But Yankee Stadium fans had plenty of excitement, as Josh Donaldson’s 10th-inning RBI single sent Marwin Gonzalez home for the win. Donaldson hit a bouncing ball to the left from Kaleb Ort third baseman Rafael Devers to win the game.

Earlier, Giancarlo Stanton rebounded from a 3-0 lead with a 2-run rush to lead a 4-run seventh inning.

The win means the Yankees have secured a playoff berth for the sixth year in a row, with an AL East-best record of 91-58 this season.

Huang hit a two-run homer in the second inning, then backed up the score with another two-run homer in the sixth to provide some insurance.

In the eighth inning, Huang Zhifeng hit a home run again in right field, hitting his 15th homer of the season, his first career three-run homer and his first five-run game.

The perfect inning for a rookie’s win at the Cubs

Wesneski finished the game with six strikeouts and two walks, allowing two runs on five hits, turning in six innings and a third.
