Teoscar Hernandez wasn't trying to win the game. All he wanted to do was move the runner over. He did that. And then some.

The run lifted the Herd to the win after they let a 4-0 lead slip in the eighth and ninth innings. …

After winning the last three of a four-game series at Toledo behind a combined 21 runs, the Buffalo Bisons returned home and dropped the opener against Indianapolis, 8-3. The Indians scored runs in innings 2-5 for enough of a cushion, including a pair of home runs from third baseman Gift Ngoepe, only his fourth and fifth long balls of the season.

Just imagine you bought Subway Series tickets way back in March. Two games in Yankee Stadium on Monday and Tuesday. Games in Citi Field on Wednesday and Thursday. Mid-August. Middle of the pennant race. Think of the drama you figured to see. Now think of the reality. The Yankees, while still leading the AL wild-card race, are coming off two horrific losses to the Red So…

When it comes to the Dog Days of August, the Yankees are in the throes of them. Don't let Friday's did-you-see-that comeback against the Red Sox fool you. What has been a fascinating transition season engineered by GM Brian Cashman is clearly in danger of slipping away thanks to a quiet offense and injuries on the mound. Slugger Aaron Judge entered the weekend having…
