Yankees place Torres on the 10-day DL

They better improve on that quick as they travel to NY to take on the Yankees tonight for a 3-game series. An inning later, he showed everyone in the Bronx that he was just fine. Neil Walker is playing second base and batting ninth for NY. Stanton remained in the game, made a leaping catch later in the inning, then slugged his 20th home run of the season in the eighth.

Stanton said he continues to feel more comfortable in a new city and league, but credits his performance to preparation.

"First time here at Yankee Stadium", he said through a translator.

Still, with both teams benefiting and getting burned by the dimensions, the first two games have been tight ballgames decided in the late innings.

NY is a major league-best 32-13 at home.

Aaron Judge had two hits and a walk, and he stole two bases for the first time in his career. Hicks also walked twice as NY drew eight free passes.

Giancarlo Stanton (three-run), Kyle Higashioka (solo) and Aaron Judge (solo) each homered for the Yankees, who also got six two-run innings from CC Sabathia. The Braves remain atop the NL East but fell behind the Brewers for the best record in the NL.

A night after Atlanta rookie Ronald Acuna Jr. barely cleared the wall to give Atlanta an 11-inning victory, the Yankees took advantage of their cozy stadium.

Despite struggles that threatened to stain his first season in New York, Stanton is now hitting.267 with 21 home runs and 51 RBIs in 83 games. Hicks has hit nine home runs in his last 17 games. "That's really all I can say about it".

Oil falls as Trump urges OPEC to reduce prices
Producing at that level would require more drilling and expanding existing fields - it isn't as simple as just opening the taps. US President Donald Trump , for one, isn't happy with the high prices US voters are paying to fill up their cars.

Sabathia last pitched Friday in an 8-1 victory over the Boston Red Sox when he allowed one run and six hits in seven innings. "[I have] better plans, better approach overall ... letting the ball get deeper, and putting the barrel on it".

Jeremy Jeffress (6-1) picked up the win despite allowing inherited runner Brian Dozier to score from third on Jorge Polanco's bloop single to left for a 1-all tie in the top of the seventh.

Higashioka's homer to left in the fourth made it 5-0. Luke Jackson relieved, but he walked Higashioka for another run.

Staked with a six-run cushion, Yankees starter Domingo German exhausted in the fifth.

MIAMI-Jose Urena and three relievers combined on a four-hitter, and Miami shook off the hangover from a 16-inning loss. Dellin Betances retired slugger Freddie Freeman with runners at the corners to end the 10th. Suzuki and Acuna hit shots just inside third base.

"Balls get kind of sucked up out there so that's just frustrating", Newcomb said after pitching a season-low 2 1/3 innings.

Aroldis Chapman threw a scoreless ninth for his 23rd save. She has been on a quest to throw a first pitch for each Major League Baseball team. Colorado's Trevor Story homered for his first four big league hits on April 4-6, 2016.

A right hip strain is forcing Gleyber Torres to the sideline for an extended stretch. The Reds also optioned utility player Brandon Dixon to Triple-A Louisville and recalled Tanner Rainey and Cody Reed from Louisville to bolster a depleted bullpen. Boone is hopeful Tanaka will throw between 65 and 75 pitches. One out later, Acuna lofted a 1-2 pitch from David Robertson (5-3) the other way. He improved to 5-4 with a 3.42 ERA in 15 starts this season.
