Aroldis Chapman's fastball was in the mid-to-upper 90s Friday while he was trying to close out the Cubs in his return to Wrigley Field.

ROYALS 3, INDIANS 1: At Kansas City, Mo., Jason Hammel allowed three hits over six innings for his first win with Kansas City, Eric Hosmer sent a two-run homer splashing into the fountains in right-center field and Kansas City beat Cleveland. "Just keep pounding away, keep putting up good at-bats".

The Red Sox were supposed to be the top team in the AL East this season, and Chicago manager Joe Maddon knows not to underestimate the Yankees in this spot from his days as the skipper of the Tampa Bay Rays.

Through 95 plate appearances in 2017, Ellsbury is slashing.282/.344/.412 with three home runs, nine RBI's and seven stolen bases.

"He was drooling coming around the bases", Headley said. "He came up in the big leagues really early on teams that weren't good and I thought the way he reacted in 2015 when we started winning was flawless". I get a chance to play at Wrigley Field after the Cubs won the World Series. "I thought we continued what we had done all game and were able to break through". After getting the first out, Chase Headley reached on a single to get things started.

But with the tying run on second, two outs and Javier Baez at the plate, Chapman got ahead 0-2 with two sliders before finally hitting triple-digits on his last pitch.

"We never feel like we're out of it with the lineup we have".

But when Contreras hit a harmless fly ball to right in the bottom of the fifth, the wind carried the ball about 40 feet from where Judge had camped under it - and it ticked off his glove to the turf as Contreras raced to third.

Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman received his 2016 World Series ring before today's game against the Chicago Cubs. Sanchez was taken out of the game after still feeling pain following a practice swing.

"It's two different parks", manager Joe Girardi said before the game when asked about the wind. "My job is to focus on the batter, make sure that run doesn't score".

It just doesn't get better than this. NY sends LHP Jordan Montgomery (1-1, 4.15 ERA) against Chicago LHP Brett Anderson (2-1, 6.23 ERA) in Saturday night's middle game of the series.

With wind gusts up to 35 miles per hour and a 37-degree wind chill at game-time, it was probably just as well that Baez kept his Super-Soaker under wraps. About 20 minutes before first pitch, they displayed video highlights of his brief Cubs tenure that culminated in the franchise's first championship since 1908. In Sanchez's last five minor-league rehab games, he went 6 for 18 with a double and two home runs.

"I was sacked up", Gardner said.

"I hope he is greeted with nothing but praises", first baseman Anthony Rizzo said. "We've gotten off to a pretty good start. He played on a lot of teams that were really bad and he played really hard the whole time".
