A look at what's happening around the majors today:
Walker has pinch-hit HR in 9th, Yanks rally past White Sox
NEW YORK (AP) — Through the first 14 innings of their homestand, the New York Yankees had five errors and four hits. A restless crowd was booing the team in pinstripes on a 96-degree night.
Then all of a sudden, the Bronx Bombers snapped out of it in a big way.
Red Sox score on throwing error in 9th, beat Marlins 8-7
BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Red Sox avoided their first four-game losing streak of the season — barely.
J.D. Martinez scored when Marlins shortstop JT Riddle threw away a potential double-play ball in the ninth inning, lifting Boston over Miami 8-7 on Tuesday night following a wild, back-and-forth final two innings.

Stanton hits hardest HR clocked by Statcast, Yanks top Texas
NEW YORK (AP) — Giancarlo Stanton's teammates jumped out of the dugout, amazed at how fast the power hitter's latest homer sped into the Yankee Stadium seats.
The Yankee slugger? Well, it was just another one in his ledger.
Stanton hit the hardest homer ever measured by Major League Baseball's Statcast system, Neil Walker hit two more home runs and New York beat the Texas Rangers 7-3 on Thursday night.
NEW YORK (AP) — Aaron Judge winced, and so did most everyone else at Yankee Stadium.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Sergio Romo relieved in the eighth inning, shifted to third base when Jonny Venters replaced him in the ninth, then struck out Brett Gardner to end the game with two on and give the Tampa Bay Rays a 3-2 win over the New York Yankees on Wednesday.
Scheduled Rays starter Nathan Eovaldi was traded to AL East-leading Boston about two hours before game time, and six pitchers combined on a seven-hitter.
NEW YORK (AP) — Commissioner Rob Manfred says Major League Baseball is trying to remove from the internet the leaked video of former Mets manager Terry Collins ranting at umpires.
The profanity-laced video surfaced this week from a Dodgers-Mets game in May 2016 that Fox televised. Collins fumes after ace Noah Syndergaard is ejected in the third inning for throwing a fastball behind Chase Utley. In the 2015 playoffs, Utley broke the leg of Mets infielder Ruben Tejada with a late, hard slide.

NEW YORK (AP) — Gleyber Torres became the youngest Yankees player to hit a walkoff homer, a three-run shot in the ninth inning that gave New York a 7-4 win over the Cleveland Indians on Sunday for its 15th victory in 16 games.
At 21 years and 144 days, bettered Mickey Mantle, who was 21 years and 185 days when he hit three-run, ninth-inning drive of Boston's Ellis Kinder in a 6-3 win on April 23, 1953.

Ohtani homered on an inside fastball in the second inning but left after trying to beat out a groundball in the fifth. The two-way Japanese rookie was receiving treatment after the game and will be re-evaluated Saturday.
