Royals-Yankees game postponed, rescheduled for Sept. 25

Royals-Yankees game postponed, rescheduled for Sept. 25

Eight was enough and Dellin Betances struck out the side in the ninth, completing the Yankees' 3-0 victory against the Royals - a dominant performance that only deepened the idea that Severino has become the ace of the 2017 Yankees.

Jacoby Ellsbury left the game in the second inning after slamming headfirst into the outfield wall while chasing down Alcides Escobar's first pitch long ball. Ellsbury left the game shortly after the collision. He remained in centre for the rest of the first inning, did not come to bat in the bottom half and was replaced by Aaron Hicks starting the second. Almonte was scheduled to make his first career start in place of Nate Karns, who was placed on the disabled list Wednesday with a forearm injury.

But it took last year's failure at the big-league level, a dedicated offseason regimen and those fireside chats about mechanics and change-ups with Pedro Martinez to pull these kind of performances out of Severino. This bad start comes on the heels of allowing eight runs in just 1 2/3 innings in his previous start. The Yankees added single runs charged to Hammel in the sixth and seventh frames.

Nationals 5, Mariners 1: Anthony Rendon hit a three-run homer for his eighth of the season, and Tanner Roark allowed a run over seven innings to lead Washington. He moved to second on a single by Kinsler before scoring on Alex Avila's RBI grounder off Chris Devenski (3-3) to give the Tigers a 3-2 lead. He started the season with Triple-A Omaha but was 3-7 with a 5.55 ERA in 21 appearances (12 starts) and got demoted to Double-A where he was 2-1 with a 7.31 ERA in 11 appearances. He allowed two of Lorenzo Cain's three home runs in NY on May 10, 2016 and allowed two runs and four hits in a five-inning no-decision in Kansas City on August 30.

The announcement was made on a wet Thursday morning in New York City about five hours before the teams were supposed to play the finale of a four-game series. He also did it April 18 against the Chicago White Sox when he allowed three earned runs.

The New York Yankees will be looking to take the series after their victory on Wednesday. Robinson Cano was hitless in his first game back from the disabled list following a thigh injury as Seattle dropped its fourth straight. Eugenio Suarez's first career pinch-hit homer - a three-run shot off Bryan Shaw - tied it at 7. The Royals lost two of three here in NY, falling to 19-27 on the season.

MILWAUKEE - Kendrys Morales hit a two-run homer and Toronto held off Milwaukee.

Allen (0-2) blew his first save since August 17.
