MLB Roundup: Yankees fans celebrate Anthony Volpe's near-walk-off homer against Red Sox...
New York Yankees rookie Anthony Volpe sent the Bronx faithful into hysterics with what many thought was a walk-off home run against the Boston Red Sox on Friday night.
The shortstop took a 3-2 offering from Red Sox Closer Kenley Jansen deep down down the left-field line in the bottom of the ninth, only to see the ball fall into foul territory.
Volpe ultimately popped out to end the threat in the ninth inning as Boston pulled out a 3-2 win over New York in their first meeting of the season, thanks in large part to another Rafael Devers homer off Yankees starter Gerrit Cole.
Triston Casas had two hits and an RBI and Enrique Hernandez also homered as the Red Sox ended a six-game losing streak at Yankee Stadium and won for the sixth time in their past 18 games overall.
Josh Donaldson homered for the Yankees, who lost for the third time in four games and dropped to 1-19 when scoring two runs or fewer this season.
