Nunez unapologetic after baserunning error deflates late Red Sox rally

For a split second, it looked like the Boston Red Sox were mounting a ninth-inning comeback against the New York Yankees.

In a 5-3 game, Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman walked the first three batters he faced to load the bases. Red Sox outfielder Andrew Benintendi hit a deep fly ball, and Jackie Bradley scored after tagging up at third base.

The problem was that Eduardo Nunez tried to advance to third from second, and was promptly thrown out by outfielder Aaron Hicks. Despite the misjudgment, Nunez told reporters after the game he won't change his mindset the next time an opportunity presents itself.

"If it happened tomorrow, I would take the chance tomorrow again," Nunez said, according to the Providence Journal's Tim Britton. "That’s how we play the game. That’s why we’re in first place. We run aggressively."

Instead of having two on and one out, the Red Sox had two outs and the potential tying run at second. Mitch Moreland flew out to end the game.

Despite the loss, manager John Farrell generally approves of the team’s aggression on the basepaths, even if it doesn’t always work out.

"I do believe there’s a means to an end with this," Farrell said. "And while the outs are going to be glaring, I still feel like when we can put pressure on the defense, we’re going to look to set that tone."

Had it not been for a five-run eighth inning where the Yankees sent 11 batters to the plate, the Red Sox wouldn’t have needed to play catch-up in the first place.

With a 65-50 record, the Red Sox still lead the AL East by 3 1/2 games over the second-place Yankees with two more games to be played in the Bronx over the weekend.

Cardinals developing ‘stray animal protocol,’ hope to find lost ‘Rally Cat’

The St. Louis Cardinals issued a statement Thursday regarding their side of the Rally Cat story, and are planning to develop a “stray animal protocol to ensure the safety of both crew and animal should this happen again.”

During Wednesday night's game against the Kansas City Royals, a stray cat ran onto the field and had to be removed by a member of the Cardinals' staff.

Korie Harris, a woman claiming to have taken ownership of the cat following the incident, later informed a local radio show that she'd since lost the cat, which she had named 'Yadi.'

Watch: ‘Rally Cat’ interrupts Cardinals-Royals 1 pitch before Yadi’s slam

St. Louis’ famous “Rally Squirrel” finally has a companion.

A small kitten stormed the Busch Stadium field and interrupted Wednesday’s contest between the Cardinals and Kansas City Royals in the sixth inning.

The feisty feline calmly jogged into the outfield and didn’t seem at all bothered by the presence of Kansas City’s Lorenzo Cain before a grounds crew member intercepted its journey. Rather than picking it up by the scruff of its neck, though, the intrepid employee tried to carry the kitty under his arm – and paid for it with several bites to the hand from an unhappy cat.

Of course, any pain the Cardinals’ grounds crew worker suffered at the hand of said kitty went away just one pitch after the delay, when the Cardinals’ new “Rally Cat” worked its magic and Yadier Molina launched a grand slam to give the home side an 8-5 lead.

Talk about a purr-fect night at the ballpark for Cardinals fans.

"I'm not a cat person, but I sure liked that one," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said postgame, according to FOX Sports Midwest.

Watch: Twins end Angels’ rally with smooth 5-4-3 triple play

Easy as 5-4-3.

The baseball world's eyes were set on Angel Stadium Thursday night to watch Albert Pujols try to become the ninth member of the 600 home-run club. While Pujols failed to leave the yard in his first two at-bats, his fourth-inning single set the stage for fans to watch a different kind of history.

With Pujols on second base and Yunel Escobar on first to open the fourth inning, Angels first baseman Jefry Marte hit a ground ball to Miguel Sano at third base. Sano immediately touched third for the force, relayed to Brian Dozier at second for out No. 2, and Dozier fired over to first baseman Joe Mauer to get Marte and complete the silky smooth 5-4-3 triple play.

It’s the second triple play of the 2017 season; Baltimore turned one against the Red Sox last month.

For the Twins, it's their 12th triple play since moving to Minnesota in 1961, and their first since Luis Castillo, Justin Morneau, and Tony Batista combined to turn a 4-3-5 triple play at the Metrodome on May 27, 2006, according to SABR's triple-play database. The Angels franchise had not hit into a triple play since Bengie Molina did it on July 7, 2004 against the White Sox, also at Angel Stadium.

The triple play was important for the Twins, as it preserved their 1-0 lead over the Angels.

Watch: Lindor’s grand slam caps off Indians’ 5-run rally in 9th

Francisco Lindor more than atoned for an early error he committed with two swings in the late innings of Wednesday’s series finale against the Texas Rangers.

The Cleveland Indians shortstop blasted a grand slam in the ninth inning off Rangers closer Sam Dyson to give the visitors an eventual 9-6 win, and helped complete the three-game sweep.

Lindor’s blast was a 403-foot no-doubter down the right-field line which capped off a five-run rally in the final inning.

It was the second home run of the game for Lindor, who also went deep in the sixth off Cole Hamels for a solo shot.

The homers helped make up for a costly throwing error committed by Lindor in the fifth inning. With two outs and runners on first and second, Lindor overthrew his first baseman and allowed the Rangers to score a pair of runs, giving them a 4-3 lead at the time.
