Red Sox announcer Remy says Tanaka shouldn't get translator

Remy apologized on Twitter earlier in the day, and the Red Sox and NESN released statements distancing themselves from Remy's remarks.

After Yankees pitching coach Larry Rothschild spoke with Tanaka in the fourth inning of Tuesday's game, Remy said to play-by-play man Dave O'Brien, "I forgot with Tanaka they take out a translator". In what was supposed to be a rebuilding year, the Yankees are second to just the Houston Astros for the AL's best record, leading the Red Sox by two games in the division.

Boston survived a late-inning rally to claim a 5-4 decision as a +119 underdog in the series opener Tuesday, but was no match for the Yankees' bats in Wednesday's blowout loss that leaves the club trailing NY by two games in the American League East standings going into Thursday night's Red Sox vs. Yankees betting matchup at Yankee Stadium.

"It wasn't hit that hard", Sabathia said after the game.

The New Jersey native surrendered at least eight hits in each of his last five turns and is 1-3 in that span. Porcello held NY to five hits in 6 2/3 innings on April 26 but issued four walks and was charged with three runs - two earned - in a loss.

The Sox could have moved into a tie for first place in the AL East.

Jonathan Holder followed Sabathia with a ideal ninth.

Boston boasts a handful of solid hitters.

Carter almost had a second homer but right fielder Mookie Betts made a leaping catch at the wall after the ball went through the arms of a fan in the first row. Girardi belatedly argued that a fan had touched the ball beyond the fence before it was caught, but umpires told him he delayed longer than the 30 seconds required.

Houston Astros sail to 7-1 win over Boston Red Sox
Normally a doubles machine, he has only recorded 11 doubles so far to go along with his limited home run output. OF Josh Reddick (concussion) will take batting practice on Monday and will likely return to the lineup Tuesday.

New York Yankees' Masahiro Tanaka, of Japan, delivers a pitch during the first inning of a baseball game against the Boston Red Sox Tuesday, June 6, 2017, in New York.

At one point Sabathia's knee brace had to be removed mid-inning, which felt a bit concerning.

Sabathia made a bare-hand grab of Jackie Bradley Jr.'s fifth-inning comebacker after Rutledge's triple, a ball that came off the bat at 98 miles per hour.

Anyways, the Yankees got more runs off Rick Porcello in the seventh. Tanaka has lost each of his last five starts while giving up 27 earned runs through 22 2/3 innings (10.72 ERA).

On Monday, Porcello attended the dedication of Porcello Field at Seton Hall Prep in West Orange, New Jersey, where he was 10-0 as a senior in 2007. Betts whiffed 0-for-4 on Wednesday; Bogaerts went 1-for-4. On Wednesday, Sabathia pitched eight innings of shutout ball, scattering five hits and retiring the last 12 batters he faced in the Yankees 8-0 win over the Red Sox.

"We were able to have the interpreter in bullpen sessions", Farrell said. RHP Carson Smith threw about 20 pitches to batters who didn't swing, his first time facing batters since Tommy John surgery on May 24 a year ago. He could possibly start for Boston on Friday night vs. Detroit.

Two weeks after sustaining a concussion, Yankees center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury isn't sure when he will return.

Tanaka threw a three-hit shutout in Boston on April 27, completing a two-game sweep by NY. Across those five starts he's allowed one or fewer earned runs in four of them, and in the other he only allowed two earned runs in 6.1 innings.
