Casey Mize went from undrafted three years ago all the way to No. 1.
Mize walked a career-high four batters (he had allowed 12 walks all season entering Saturday’s game), hit another and gave up a season-high six runs in only five innings.
I didn’t throw a lot of strikes, and I walked four guys, and I hit one, Mize said. I don’t know when the last time was I walked four guys. I don’t know. I just couldn’t get ahead, couldn’t stay in the strike zone. … I don’t know. I was leaving a bunch of stuff up, and they were putting some good swings on balls.

Hamilton threw out two runners, then made outstanding catches against the wall in the eighth and ninth innings. He also tripled and scored twice.

An http://www.vikingsauthenticofficialshops.com/WOMENS-BEN-GEDEON-JERSEY.html anticipated Luis Severino-Chris Sale showdown turned into a 14-1 rout for the Red Sox, the much-vaunted bullpen had blown a couple of leads, and Giancarlo Stanton was striking out in droves:
Boone wasn’t about to panic. He kept Brett Gardner in the leadoff spot even after a slow start. He has kept Aaron Judge in the 2-hole all season because that’s where he wants Judge to hit. Stanton has hit third or fourth all season (with one A.J. Green Authentic Jersey start in the No. 2 slot the other day when Judge got a day off) as Boone wisely ignored calls to move him down in the order.
