In his latest peak performance Authentic Daniel Kilgore Jersey , Luis Severino took matters into his own hands – and glove.

Severino jumped to steal away a popup from catcher Gary Sanchez while pitching eight sharp innings, leading the New York Yankees over the Tampa Bay Rays 4-1 Saturday.

”He didn’t say, `I got it’ and I was there,” Severino quipped. ”So you know I went for the ball. . He said, `You took it from my glove.”’

Giancarlo Stanton and Sanchez hit back-to-back home runs as New York won for the 13th time in 16 games. It was the Rays’ 18th loss in 22 games at Yankee Stadium.

Severino (10-2) simply overwhelmed a weak-hitting Rays lineup that has produced just one run over its last 21 innings. The 24-year-old righty gave up three hits, struck out nine and walked two, tying Cleveland’s Corey Kluber for the AL win lead.

Severino showed off other talents, too.

In the fifth, Carlos Gomez led off with a popup high above the plate. As Sanchez looked into the sun trying to find the ball, Severino sprung off the mound. They were next to each other, slightly in foul ground, when Severino leaped to catch the ball, right above Sanchez’s mitt.

Took it right away from his best friend on the team, in fact.

”I tried to block it a little bit more with the glove. I found the ball, I was in a good spot and I had it right there,” Sanchez said. ”And I was surprised when I heard the steps. I think it was an instinct of his. He tried to assure his out.”

Sanchez gave Severino a look, perhaps wondering why the pitcher came into the picture Ravens Elite Jerseys , before they went back to work.

Said Aaron Judge: ”He’s an athlete out there. I think he is trying to win a Gold Glove.”

The play on Gomez came during a stretch of 11 straight batters Severino retired before Joey Wendle singled with two outs in the seventh. Severino then threw a 99 mph fastball past Gomez to strike him out.

Severino was perfect in the eighth, and Chasen Shreve relieved to begin the ninth.

Matt Duffy hit a leadoff homer against Shreve and homered for just the fourth time this year, cutting the lead 4-1, and Jake Bauers followed with a triple that bounced out of center fielder Aaron Hicks‘ glove.

Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman then set down the next three batters for his 20th save in 21 chances.

The Rays have lost 12 of their last 16 games and have one more game in the Bronx on Sunday before continuing their seven-game road trip Monday with three games at defending champion Houston.

”No matter what stage, rebuild or expected to win or whatever, losing always tends to be something that is not fun,” Duffy said. ”We have some adjustments to make.”

New York has won Severino’s last 12 starts going back to Sept. 3. During that span, he is 9-0 with an 1.75 ERA.

Aaron Boone has gotten accustomed to it since taking over as the Yankees manager.

”Obviously, any time he goes I feel great about it,” Boone said. ”He’s a great pitcher. He’s establishing himself as one of the best in the game and he gave us a lot today.”

New York didn’t fare too well against Ryne Stanek, who allowed a hit and struck out one over 1 1/3 scoreless inning on Tampa Bay’s designated ”bullpen day.”

Ryan Yarbrough (5-3) gave up a run in the second on rookie Gleyber Torres‘ two-out double. Didi Gregorius hit an RBI single in the third.

Stanton connected in the fifth for his 16th home run. Four pitches later, Sanchez hit his 13th homer over the center field fence – that snapped a homerless streak of 66 at-bats dating to May 19.


Prior to the game, the Yankees acquired 2B Wendell Rijo to complete the May 25 trade that sent C Erik Kratz to Milwaukee. The 22-year-old will report to Single-A Tampa. Rijo was hitting .200 with four homers and 14 RBI in 32 games for Double-A Biloxi in the Southern League.


Yankees prospect Jonathan Loaisiga felt honored by the glowing remarks Rays manager Kevin Cash made after the 23-year-old debuted Friday night with a win, throwing five scoreless innings while striking out six while walking four.

Cash compared the Nicaraguan rookie to Mariano Rivera, baseball’s all-time saves leader, but joked he was hopeful that Loaisiga wouldn’t develop the same devastating cutter that the former Yankees closer owned.

”I think that comment is something very flattering because to mention Mariano, you’re talking about a superstar and someone who was historic Cassius Marsh Jersey Elite ,” said Loaisiga, adding that he had never met the future Hall of Famer from Panama. ”I think that it’s something that almost too good.”


Yankees veteran lefty CC Sabathia (4-1, 3.27 ERA) will try to win his third straight start Sunday. For the second consecutive game, Tampa Bay ”start” a reliever, this time Wilmer Font (0-1, 6.87 ERA).

鈥?Larry Fitzgerald might well be the most popular athlete in the history of the state of Arizona.The wide receiver’s resume is packed with Hall of Fame-caliber statistics accumulated over 14 seasons with the Cardinals team that drafted him third overall in 2004. Add to that his easy-going personality combined with a remarkable durability 鈥?he’s missed six games of his 224 since joining the league 鈥?and off-the-field contributions.A year ago, Fitzgerald and the Giants’ Eli Manning shared the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year award.And impressively, at age 34, he’s still playing at a high level, all while staying mum on whether he will return for another season.Last week, he said he would take some time off when the season ends to figure it out.His uncertainty matches big questions with other Cardinals, including whether coach Bruce Arians will stick around for a sixth season, and whether quarterback Carson Palmer will be back with a mended broken arm at age 38.Fitzgerald found it pointless to speculate.“What happens after Sunday moving forward, none of us can control that on Thursday,” he said. “We just need to focus on the things that we can control.”He resisted talking about what might happen to the organization once the season ends.“I personally have no control over 98 percent of the stuff,” Fitzgerald said. “All I have control over is what I decide to do and that’s not really that big of a deal. There’s a lot of other decisions that are going to be made and choices, and none of that has anything to do with me Josh Allen Bills Jersey , to be honest with you.“So I just try to stay in the moment. I said it on Sunday, just trying to stay in the moment all the time and get yourself ready to play.”Fans would argue that Fitzgerald’s impending decision is a very big deal.No. 11 jerseys far outnumber any other when Arizona’s “Red Sea” of fans gathers at University of Phoenix Stadium. When he caught a TD pass to cap a big day last Sunday against the Giants, the crowd chanted “Lar-ry, Lar-ry, Lar-ry!”Fitzgerald has shattered nearly every franchise receiving record and has caught a pass in 210 consecutive games, third longest in NFL history. He ranks third all-time (behind Jerry Rice and Terrell Owens) in yards receiving and third (behind Rice and Tony Gonzalez) in receptions.He has had 17 quarterbacks complete a pass to him for a franchise that has often lacked stability let alone excellence at the position, except for his time with new Hall of Famer Kurt Warner and Palmer.Fitzgerald enters Saturday’s season finale tied with Antonio Brown (now injured) with 101 receptions, two fewer than league leader Jarvis Landry. Fitzgerald has 1,101 yards receiving 鈥?the ninth, and third straight, time he has topped 1,000 yards in a season.He’s been selected to the Pro Bowl for the 11th time.He led the league last year with 107 receptions and had a career-best 109 in 2015 鈥?all after he was switched from wideout to slot receiver when coach Arians arrived.“Pretty much the norm,” Arians said. “He comes in great shape, he catches a hundred passes and gains a thousand yards.”Fitzgerald credited a switch in emphasis to a short, intermediate passing game.“I just think I’m reaping the benefit of that change,” he said.And it’s no coincidence the big numbers coincided with the decision to move Fitzgerald to the slot. That’s a rough job, including blocking Patrick Omameh Color Rush Jersey , but it opened the way for more one-on-one coverage and other opportunities.Fitzgerald accepted it, worked hard at it and eventually excelled.“Yeah, it was a decision for him to leave playing what he had played and was very comfortable doing,” Arians said, “and just trusting that, ‘Hey, it’s going to work out, and you’re going to catch a whole lot more balls this way.'”What’s not known is how seriously Fitzgerald is considering hanging it up after 15 seasons. He has a one-year contract, which means if he does play it will be for Arizona. But he has not said whether he will step away from the game instead. So there’s a chance this could be his last one.It’s on to Seattle for what Fitzgerald said is “hands down” his favorite road game.“I’ve been looking back through all the years. I’ve never played (in) Seattle before Thanksgiving before,” he said. “It’s always late season, cold, dreary, rainy, loud, miserable game. So I wouldn’t expect it any other way.”.
