Tanaka helps Yankees earn fifth straight win

After a tough week-and start to the season-the St. Louis Cardinals look to carry over some momentum into NY as the team begins a three-game series with the Yankees.

Martinez was the first pitcher since Randy Johnson in 1993 with at least eight walks and 11 strikeouts in a game. "I couldn't quite get the grasp on the changeup and the fastball but thank god I was able to work through it and finally find a rhythm through the later innings". He made few mistakes and the 97-pitch outing earned him a standing ovation from fans. Walking Greg Garcia heightened the tension and leverage, but Clippard's third strikeout of the frame, sitting down Randal Grichuk, ended the threat and secured the Yankees' second straight series win. Of the first 12 batters, none put the ball in play. "He's got great stuff, and he was having a little bit of trouble getting into the zone".

After Torreyes moved to third on a fielder's choice, Aaron Hicks grounded a chopper back to the mound.

St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Carlos Martinez walks off the field after being relieved in the sixth inning of a baseball game against the New York Yankees, Saturday, April 15, 2017, in New York. Tanaka's go-to pitch briefly betrayed him when he mis-located a trio of splitters to Carpenter - two in the dirt, one over the plate - before the Cardinals' No. 3 hitter launched his first homer of the season, a two-run shot off a 95 miles per hour sinker. I am sad to report there is no footage on YouTube; go make do with a replay of Martinez from today instead, I guess. "He pretty much had everything going", Headley said.

Tigers 7, Indians 6: Miguel Cabrera hit a three-run homer in the fifth inning after being brushed back in the first, and the Tigers handed the Indians their sixth loss in seven games.

St. Louis entered the night with a majors-worst 7.86 bullpen ERA.

Altogether, they were a group of 47 students, many of whom chose to take a dip in the sea. "Three students have been rescued and are under medical observation", the police said.

The Cardinals are 3-7 this season and lost this one in part because of a messy defensive miscue. "But I felt fine this was a game we needed to win". "That doesn't mean that's the team we're destined to be". That came in Game 5 of the 1964 World Series, when Bob Gibson threw all 10 innings and struck out 13.

NOTES: The Cardinals and Yankees are the only teams to retire No. 42 for their own players.

The Cubs loaded the bases with two outs in the ninth inning before Tony Watson got Ben Zobrist on a grounder for his third save.

There was plenty more star power on the field last time both clubs met in NY in 2003; the Rocket, Moose and Mo were in pinstripes, and opposing managers Joe Girardi and Mike Matheny were teammates on the Cardinals. The Yankees do not believe it is a long-term issue though it might keep him out of the lineup Sunday against close friend RHP Adam Wainwright.

Holliday played seven seasons in St. Louis prior to signing with the Yankees last winter. Holliday was replaced by 1B/DH Chris Carter, who struck out four times in five at-bats.

CC Sabathia performed like the polished veteran he is with his third consecutive quality start in putting the Cardinals away efficiently and decisively.
