    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Pinch-hitter Michael Perez hit a sacrifice fly in the eighth inning on his 28th birthday, six Tampa Bay pitchers combined on a two-hitter and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the AL East-leading New York Yankees 1-0 on Friday night. “I think so, yeah,” Perez said through a translator when asked if this was the best gift he could have given himself. Yoshi Tsutsugo drew a leadoff walk from Adam Ottavino (2-1) in the eighth and went to second with one out when Kevin Kiermaier walked. Both runners advanced a base on a wild pitch before Perez drove in the game’s only run on his fly to center. Chaz Roe (2-0) went the final two innings...
    Here is the question all Mets fans should be asking. Can we finish second? Sure, no fan base wants to chant, “We’re No. 2.” But remember that with expanded playoffs, eight clubs in each league make the playoffs and the top two in each division are guaranteed entry. So, like every team, the Mets want to finish first. But assuming MLB has a postseason — a huge assumption during a pandemic — second place will assure October games. And with the likelihood of no fans and perhaps even neutral sites, being the “road” team in a playoff series will be less detrimental than ever. Can the Mets finish as at least NL East silver medalists? The division is not made...

    PHILADELPHIA — Sure, had the Yankees received six more outs with which to work early Wednesday evening, they very well might have completed their coup against Joe Girardi’s shaky Phillies bullpen.

    Having spent the previous two seasons with the Astros, Gerrit Cole knows what a good team looks like. On Sunday afternoon, the Yankees ace was asked his impression of the club he signed with as a free agent and has made two successful starts for. Cole response was three letters long: “Wow.” Based on the Yankees winning seven of the first eight games of a 60-game season thanks to his right arm, the muscles belonging to Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton and Gio Urshela, and a solid bullpen that hasn’t welcomed All-Star closer Aroldis Chapman back from COVID-19, Cole could have stopped with those three letters.
