Red Sox announcer Remy apologizes for no-translator remarks

Tanaka's big mistakes came via the home run with Boston taking the Japanese pitcher deep 3 times courtesy of home runs by Mitch Moreland, Hanley Ramirez, and Andrew Benintendi.

The Red Sox lost 8-0 to the Yankees Wednesday here at Yankee Stadium.

Mariners 6, Twins 5: Mike Zunino hit his second homer of the game with two outs in the ninth inning, a two-run shot that gave surging Seattle a comeback victory.

"I'm feeling better. I still have some headaches but I talked to the doc and we're definitely making progress", Ellsbury said.

Rays 3, White Sox 1: Jacob Faria allowed one run and three hits in 61/3 innings to win in his major-league debut, and Tampa Bay snapped a season-high four-game slide.

Boston Red Sox analyst Jerry Remy had a problem with Yankees pitcher Masahiro Tanaka during Tuesday's game in NY because the Japanese pitcher needed a translator during a mound visit. RHP Carson Smith threw about 20 pitches to batters who didn't swing, his first time facing batters since Tommy John surgery on May 24 a year ago.

"He's been that guy his whole career you could turn to when you needed a big win and he still does it", Girardi said.

Didi Gregorius hit a go-ahead home run starting the third and Carter homered for the second straight day, a fourth-inning drive that followed Starlin Castro's leadoff triple and an RBI single by Gary Sanchez. He finished the game up by eight runs after Matt Holliday, Carter and Brett Gardner added RBI singles.

Remy: Learn baseball language.

It's become increasingly clear that the 2017 New York Yankees are for real.

Remy's comments Tuesday night during the NESN telecast of the Boston-New York game quickly drew harsh criticism on social media, with some saying there isn't one universal language for baseball.

The Red Sox will seek their fourth straight win after holding on for a 5-4 victory in the series opener on Tuesday. Injuries limited him to eight starts in 2014, and then he went 6-10 with a 4.73 ERA in 2015.

Sabathia improved to 6-0 with a 1.25 ERA in seven starts after a Yankees loss this season. "Didn't see the replay but it looked like it may have gone off a fan's hand in play".

"The headaches have been gone at times, but it seems like when we start some activity they come back", manager Joe Girardi said. "It's really hard to ignore what Aaron Hicks has done", Girardi said.

Over the years, Remy has taken several leaves of absence for the Red Sox TV game broadcasts for health reasons and also after his son was charged with the murder of his girlfriend.

The reigning AL Cy Young Award victor has thrown at least six innings in each of his last 18 road starts, the longest active streak in the majors.

Ortiz said he's been talking to the Red Sox about some kind of role with the organization, though he's not ready to commit to anything.

Chris Carter went 3-for-4 with four RBIs.
