10:32 pm
it's probably his last at bat barring something crazy. it ended the inning. it was a strange way. i think girardi sensing that and trying to figure out how to get him on the field here. >> yeah. and take him out. >> send him out one lot of time. -- one last time. we are all about speculating at this point. yankees up 6-ley. trying to keep pace in this wild card race. adam warren, he goes to the cubs in the trade for castro. he had been a really good versatile yankee. he was terrible in chicago and it just didn't work.
10:33 pm
he comes back in the aroldis chapman trade and since he has come back has been really good. this hit to left and one away. >> he has really good stuff. i like his action and the way he throws. and to the degree where you are familiar with the pitching coach and you try to impress too much when you go somewhere else. maybe he fell into a little bit of that and now is back. again still in the thick of things. it was difficult to leave a team you know is going to the play-offs. >> right. >> and come to a team you hope maybe can get to the play-offs. >> he turned into the eighth inning man for the yanks. remember they had chapman and miller and betances. betances is closing so at least the early indication joe girardi used him as the eighth inning guy. it works for adam warren.
10:34 pm
matt duffy is the hitter. duffy skies one to center. and it's two away. >> he is just sneaky quick enough. radar readings won't show high velocity of 97-98. just didn't pick up the ball and has enough break on his slider/curve ball and filling a role everybody knew -- i thought it was kind of a slight curse for joe girardi. this is what i mean. >> okay. >> at no point will your starter go seven innings in a close game. you will be so second guessed or questioned about why didn't you bring in the big three? my argument about changing your franchise and trading those three guys would be better for the future and you could still win along the way. that's what the yankees came to the understanding for the future this is what we have to do and
10:35 pm
what we can build on. >> i think it's a great point. longoria fouls it off. he has druive -- driven in two tonight. i really feel like because of the specialization and how it has become with the roles in the bullpen. if a starter is having a great game the manager takes him out to avoid getting second guessed. >> exactly. that's the question and & situation a new manager deals with an old manager didn't deal with. that curse i was talking about is if you think about having three great arms like they did, two out of three every night is better than three out of three. then you have a fresh guy every third or second day. that isn't what was happening. the pressure to win, stay in the race, utilize these guys every winning formula. it has its price to pay and they
10:36 pm
did the best they could do short of getting schwarber from the cubs they maximized opportunity to get 13 players? something like that. >> they did really well. longoria watches outside, ball 4. warren puts longoria on with the 2-out walk. if you look what the yankees did at the deadline, so from the cubs they got the number one and 7 prospect. from texas they got the number 5 prospect. from cleveland they got the number 2 and 4 prospect. that's a lot of hope. >> yes. >> for a team that is trying to turn over their roster and have a little youth infusion for first time in years. >> you don't want to grow old together, we know what happens. this is a proud franchise that has won a lot of years in a row and has a nice streak going. i don't know if they will catch their previous streak of winning seasons in a row. last year, again, people would
10:37 pm
say they made the play-offs the one game, but did they really have the team that could have done much in the play-offs, proven they didn't last year. this year they would be scary in a one game under the old formula of those guys. i think moving forward they have just given themselves a better chance to be relevant and not be in a bigger hole. >> 0 and 2 the count to brad miller. adam warren trying to work through the eighth protect the three-run lead. cc sabathia stands to be the winner. 0-2 pitch coming. little low. the last time they were sellers when they traded henderson from
10:38 pm
the a's that's a long time ago. you give cash man and company credit for trying to see where they are and remain competitive and turn this around for next year and get younger. he got him. adam warren one walk and gets through the eighth. the yankees up over the rays. ♪ announcing zero for seventy-two across the entire lineup of ford cars, trucks and suvs. plus, tagged vehicles now get a thousand smart bonus. that's freedom from interest... and freedom to choose with ford. america's best selling brand. ♪ now get 0% financing for 72 months across the entire ford lineup, plus specially tagged vehicles get a thousand smart bonus. americans, i don't understand you. always working on vacation.

10:40 pm
nolet's get his autograph.m. jacob... can we get your auto... haha, yeah i get that a lot. jacob and i could be identical twins. i don't think so. well, maybe just related, haha. no way. well we both throw a heck of a fast ball! not just anyone can be a major league pitcher like jacob degrom. but anyone could save money with geico. geico, see how much you could save. create your own tour of italy is only at olive garden.99, choose 3 of 9 of our favorite italian dishes to get everything you want, all on one plate. plus unlimited salad and breadsticks. hurry in and create your own tour. offer ends sunday. olive garden. >> bottom of the eighth inning. yankees over the rays here. mark teixeira will lead it off. teixeira had a good night. a couple of singles and scored
10:41 pm
twice. he even stole his second base of the year. this one popped to left. >> gone. >> it's gone tonight, you never know. [laughing] tonight's telecast is sponsored by: hot, steamy night in new york city. thunderstorms early delayed the game for a while. a typical summer evening. a little sticky. at some point mccann has to make pitchers pay on the first pitch. >> maybe it's here. no. >> at some point has to change the scouting report.
10:42 pm
>> that musses to mccann. 32 years old, a contract into 2018 here. you were talking so interesting about his approach -- that one's off the glove. mccann hustling to 1st. not going to get there. a ricochet and mccann is put out a good night for him despite the thunder and lightning as his ceremony was getting under way. didi has a double tonight and
10:43 pm
three trips. want to finish on mccann and the one thing about him, even though talking about he swings for the fences too much, 11 straight years only bench, berra and carter have gone that as catcher. pretty good company. if you are buying into the new age philosophy you try to built up your power and i think could have had the best of both worlds. >> in atlanta went everywhere and a cap hitter and it changed a little bit. i get it. gregorius quickly ahead of the count 3-0. 2 down in the eighth. and a four-pitch walk. we have had alex rodriguez' final game and his final at bat
10:44 pm
his last time up. will we see him in the ninth? had a conversation with joe girardi. will there be one more time for him to take the field and get some kind of cheers tonight? see if joe gets creative. stressful for joe girardi. >> oh, my goodness. people have no idea. you think about it, the last five years and all he has dealt with, aging dynasty and superstars and mariano rivera and derek jeter and -- i mean it was inevitable but is tough to deal with. i mean, just with jeter it took years off his age or the filing
10:45 pm
of how he -- feeling of how he felt. that's the icon here you can't replace. >> no. that's a hard thing. and look, jeter batted second all year and didn't have a good offensive year all year last year. if you go up and down the line with differences and similarities all year long. 1 and 1 do castro. down low. here is the crowd. we want a-rod chant. >> what made them great is they don't think of themselves differently other than grinding. looking through a different lens it's difficult will -- someone else telling you where you should be. it's hard. castro getting into another one. this is -- this time the ball
10:46 pm
park am hold it. the crowd wants a-rod and they want him and here is joe girardi with the lineup card. he's got the glove. if that's the case, give credit to joe girardi. give him credit for being creative and doing a neat thing. >> not that easy with the dh. >> yeah. and here he comes. [cheering]
10:47 pm
like a kid on the first day of little league. >> yeah. we have talked about it all game long, a lot to the a-rod story. that's for sure. it's complicated but he is a great player. i think the game will miss him. just for the interest alone. he has been a fascinating player to watch. >> he knows the game. he is really smart. when you think about everything he had to do in this game to be at the level he was. there is definitely some impact he will have next year for the organization for a lot of young guys and teaching them how to play the game. and the tools he once possessed. >> a lot of people poo-poo that and you're around him and everyone says he is terrific
10:48 pm
with the younger guys. he takes an interest. i think he would be good at that role. you know what? you have to give girardi credit here. this is a pretty great thing to do for joe girardi. >> it is. you have the beast on the mound and betances and in a perfect world he strikes out the first guy and maybe they can allow alec rodriguez to come off. >> the last time alex played 3rd base, may 5, 2015. the end of a historic career and controversial one. now he is just having fun in his final inning. here is betances now the closer with all the trades the yankees made. the way he pitches rodriguez may not have a shot to peeled one.
10:49 pm
field one. life in the crowd here in the bronx employ -- bronx. mahtook leading off. and a little gas, but inside, 1 and 0. 2 and 0. >> betances approaching historic strikeout numbers for a reliever. 2 and 1. the crazey thing and chapman and miller are stars and they trade them at the deadline. movie aboutitances up.
10:50 pm
the bullpen -- movie aboutitances -- betances up. 2-1 now coming. >> it's like a rally yie cry that we have to do this a different way and everybody look at this as an opportunity. he will benefit here and the fact he will be in a more defined role and burn the bullets as much. as a closer you are the one guy. you know your role moving forward. i think you will see him rack up a lot of saves. >> 2-2 from betances. strike 3 called. one away. >> devastating pitch and this is the last one for a-rod.
10:51 pm
>> alex rodriguez will leave the field for one last time. [cheering]
10:52 pm
[cheering] >> so 22 years and alex rodriguez will take a seat. and now the yankees will try to finish out this game. betances goton out and -- one out and needs two more.
10:53 pm
a swing and a miss from cory dickerson. >> it won't hit home now or in the press conference. only when his body is ready to do something that he is not doing. creatures of habit of the baseball game. that's all he's known. alec's family there. his daughters. his mom behind them. he was so ecstatic to have them here to watch him play for a final time. will fire it down, but not in time. the rays have a base runner here in the ninth.
10:54 pm
you said it won't hit home. what is he thinking right now? >> a lot of flashing moments joe will want to watch in replay. a lot of flashing moments of all the times he had to go through both good and bat. every athlete goes through a time when they go through the unwritten story. it's the times in the gym when you come back from surgery, the hip surgery. the moments you don't know if you can play any more and reproving it to yourself. those are the moments he will sit back and go i did it. i did it at a level where a lot of people have not come close. he will be judged according to not only his peers but those who watch from afar. and will realize okay, they will give him credit or they won't in certain areas. what i talk about, for me,
10:55 pm
fortunately the piece of walking away knowing i gave every ounce i and regardless of what he does, that will be some of the same feels. he has known this game from a very young age and he is in an elite category most of baseball couldn't think of in great tons walk away. he will be on his couch and turn on the game and miss the camaraderie and miss the opportunity to touch and help another player. i think next year where he will be able to stay connected to the game if he does what the yankees have asked him to do. >> they review it. the runner is out and that's the second out of the inning. dickerson called out on the overturned call. betances one out away. i know one thing for relative certainty. i don't know that you and i will be do another player's final game in the middle of a year.
10:56 pm
>> no. >> after he has been released. >> doesn't seem like it. >> that has been something. some week for alex rodriguez and the yankees. i think he has had a pretty good night tonight. yanks playing well. took two of three from the red sox and tried to close out game one of the weekend set with the rays. sabathia six innings, pitched well. it's 1 and 1. castro has has been the offensie guy. driven in four with two outs. castro has had a night. and a-rod with an rbi double. 1-1 pitch. there is a strike to souza. >> for the yankees every off-season is an interesting one. this one in particular might beoon -- an interesting one they
10:57 pm
can decide the future of their club. >> 1-2. and he got him. and this one is over. so betances comes on and gets the save. 6-3 yankees win. alex rodriguez in his final game goes out a winner and contributes with an rbi double. 12 years as a yankee, 22 years as a major leaguer. there was controversy. there was craziness. there was also greatness. and now trying to savor these last moments in a yankee win.
10:58 pm
6-3 your final tonight. sabathia gets the win. archer takes the loss. ken rosenthal will grab a-rod in just a moment as we watch him work his way off the field. [cheering]
10:59 pm
let's go down to ken. >> alex, how meaningful was to to play 3rd base again and leave the field the way you did? >> it was so awesome. i want to thank joe. that was quite a moment i will never forget.
11:00 pm
my mom is here and daughters ar. >> it's getting fun now. we have a great future and i'm still part of the organization and will b
