NEW YORK (AP) — Yankees manager Aaron Boone ended his argument by squatting behind home and impersonating a catcher to show plate umpire Nic Lentz what he was missing.Boone was long gone by the time umpires awarded Luke Voit first base on a borderline check swing — a decision that left Tigers skipper Ron Gardenhire red in the face , too.Gleyber Torres drove in the go-ahead run one batter after a contested call loaded the bases for New York in the eighth inning, and the Yankees beat Detroit 7-5 on Friday night as they await the arrival of 2013 NL MVP Andrew McCutchen.Boone fired up the crowd — and got himself ejected — for yelling at Lentz from the dugout during Torres’ fifth-inning at-bat. He then stuck a finger in Lentz’s face and gave him a tutorial behind the dish . Boone’s dad is All-Star catcher Bob Boone, so he had the style down pat while lecturing Lentz, who is a Triple-A umpire filling in on a big league crew.“I just had some issue with the zone on a couple of pitches, key pitches that I felt like were missed and I took exception to it,” Boone said. “I guess he had heard enough.”Torres appreciated the support.“After that, we felt a little more hot, more excited,” Torres said.It showed when Brett Gardner, Aaron Hicks and Miguel Andujar homered in the sixth to end Jordan Zimmermann’s bid for a second career no-hitter.After a few back-and-forth innings, New York trailed 5-4 before loading the bases against Joe Jimenez (4-4) on a double by Gardner and walks by Hicks and Voit.Voit was ruled to have checked his swing on a 3-2, two-out pitch, and Gardenhire was ejected by first base umpire Paul Nauert for arguing.“Looked like he got the last out,” a frustrated Gardenhire said. “Looked like he did.”As he walked back to the dugout after giving Nauert an earful Roberto Alomar Jersey , Gardenhire asked Voit “did you swing?” Gardenhire said Voit just shook his head and smiled.“You have to have those moments out there because I was frustrated and I didn’t want to be to, well, my wife is watching this game,” Gardenhire said.Voit was willing to go with Nauert’s version of the play:“He said I didn’t, so I didn’t swing.”Torres then lined an 0-1 pitch from Alex Wilson to left field for a single, and the ball ricocheted off the head of diving left fielder Mikie Mahtook, allowing two runs to score for a 6-5 Yankees lead. After an intentional walk to Neil Walker, Austin Romine brought in another run with an infield single.David Robertson struck out Nicholas Castellanos and Victor Reyes with two on in the ninth for his fifth save.New York had to rally after blowing a late lead for the second straight game. A night after Dellin Betances gave up two homers in the ninth of an 8-7 loss to Detroit — Boone called that one “a kick in the stomach” — Zach Britton (2-0) allowed a tying single to Mahtook in the seventh and a go-ahead, bases-loaded sacrifice fly to Ronny Rodriguez in the eighth that made it 5-4.The banged-up Yankee lineup will get a boost Saturday. McCutchen is expected to join the team following a trade Friday from San Francisco, and catcher Gary Sanchez is set to return from the DL.Zimmermann carried a 3-0 lead and a no-hitter into the sixth behind a solo homer from Niko Goodrum and a two-run triple by Jim Adduci.After Romine reached via error, Gardner hit Zimmermann’s 2-0 pitch over the right-field wall. Hicks added a no-doubt solo shot two batters later to tie it at 3, and Andujar made it 4-3 with a solo shot in the next at-bat.New York starter Luis Severino was pulled in line for his major league-leading 18th victory, but instead took a no-decision after pitching three-run ball for six innings. He struck out 10.REINFORCEMENTS COMINGBeginning Saturday, McCutchen will handle right field duties until slugger Aaron Judge returns from a broken right wrist.“We’re getting a really good player ,” Boone said, adding that “I think his reputation precedes him. This is as high a character person as we have in our game and I know he’ll fit well in our room.”Sanchez is returning from a groin injury. The 2017 All-Star is hitting just .188 with 14 homers in 66 games this season, but Boone has praised Sanchez’s improved conditioning during his recovery process.“I think we’re getting potentially a front line player and a guy that will be an absolute presence in our lineup,” Boone said of Sanchez.BRONX SPOTTERSThe Yankees drew 41,026 and surpassed three million fans for the 20th consecutive season, extending their major league record.TRAINER’S ROOMTigers: LHP Daniel Norris will be activated from the DL to start Saturday. He’s been out since having groin surgery May 3. … Detroit activated LHP Blaine Hardy (left elbow tendinitis) from the DL. … SS Jose Iglesias has a strained lower abdominal but testing showed no tears, meaning he should be able to return in 10-14 days.Yankees: Boone said top prospect LHP Justus Sheffield would likely not be among the players New York calls up Saturday when rosters expand.UP NEXTNorris will oppose Yankees RHP Masahiro Tanaka (9-5, 3.97), who is 0-3 with a 3.88 ERA in his past four starts. NEW YORK (AP) — Aaron Judge walked past Boston’s Fenway Park clubhouse early Sunday morning, Frank Sinatra’s rendition of “New York, New York” blaring from a boom box atop the wheelie bag he was pulling with his left hand.“It’s a good song. And Aaron, he’s one of our resident deejays, so he’s got a pretty extensive playlist,” New York manager Aaron Boone said later in the day at Yankee Stadium Roger Clemens Jersey , a smirk filling his face. “We like to hear that song sometimes when we win a big game.”New York and Boston split at Fenway Park and are tied 1-1 in the best-of-five AL Division Series going into Game 3 on Monday night. Luis Severino, coming off four scoreless innings in the wild-card game against Oakland, starts for New York and former Yankees pitcher Nathan Eovaldi pitches for the Red Sox.Severino was 10-2 with a 2.74 ERA and .217 opponents’ batting average at home, just 9-6 with a 3.99 ERA and .257 opponents’ batting average on the road.“Maybe my wife cooks better food here,” he said.New York is 19-9 in the postseason at new Yankee Stadium, where boisterous Bronx crowds try to intimidate. The Yankees’ were 53-28 there during the regular season, the second-best home record behind Boston’s 57-24. The win over Oakland in last week’s wild-card game improved New York to 7-0 at home in the postseason since the start of the 2017 playoffs.“The fans, they’re out there on the field with you,” Judge said. “Every single pitch they’re locked in. It’s electric.”New York is built for Yankee Stadium, where it takes advantage of the short right-field porch and hit 144 of its record 267 home runs. Boston is constructed in a similar fashion, knowing half its games are played in front of Fenway’s Green Monster lurking in left field.“Two places that are historic franchises where the fans are definitely rowdy for their home team and against the visiting team,” Red Sox reliever Matt Barnes said .This will be the first postseason game in the Bronx between the rivals since Boston won Games 6 and 7 of the 2004 AL Championship Series across the street at old Yankee Stadium, becoming the first major league team to overcome a 3-0 deficit in a best-of-seven postseason series.“All empires fall sooner or later,” then-Red Sox president Larry Lucchino said that night.A year earlier Justin Smoak Jersey , Boone’s 11th-inning homer off Tim Wakefield won Game 7 and the AL pennant. Now he’s a rookie manager, leading a group of Baby Bombers that reached Game 7 of the AL Championship Series last year before losing to Houston.“This fan base I feel like absolutely connected with kind of this new generation of Yankee player, this young corps that has developed,” Boone said . “Me watching from afar last year, especially in the postseason, you could kind of see that raw intensity connection that the fan base had with the players.”For all the focus on big boppers, J.D. Martinez, Mookie Betts and Andrew Benintendi for Boston, and Judge, Giancarlo Stanton and Gary Sanchez for New York, relievers have reigned in an era when starting pitchers often are shown the exit before they have a chance to stumble too much.New York’s bullpen has allowed one run in 10 innings, led by Dellin Betances, Zach Britton and Aroldis Chapman. Red Sox relievers have given up five in 11 innings.Hoping for a deep outing, Boston manager Alex Cora selected Eovaldi for Game 3 over Rick Porcello , who pitched two-thirds of an inning of relief in Friday’s opener and now will match up against 38-year-old left-hander CC Sabathia in Game 4.Eovaldi was 3-3 with a 3.33 ERA in 11 starts and one relief appearance for the Red Sox, who acquired him from Tampa Bay in July. The 28-year-old right-hander, who throws at 97-98 mph, allowed no earned runs in three of four starts this year against the Yankees. He pitched for New York in 2015 and ’16 before injuring his elbow, which required Tommy John surgery for the second time.His goal is to keep bats and fans quiet.“Trying to keep the ball in the ballpark — try and get quick outs, try not to let the crowd get too crazy and get behind them and get them going,” he said. Cora and the Red Sox wouldn’t sound off about Judge’s musical taste — not that they could hear the famous Kander and Ebb song on Fenway’s concourse through thick clubhouse walls after the 6-2 win in Game 2.“That’s probably just something they do when they win,” the manager said.Yankees players were ready for familiar sounds when the series resume.“It’s been a while since Boston played Yankees in the playoffs. So the fans are going to be excited,” Betances said. “They were pretty loud for that Oakland game. This is going to be a little crazier for this Boston game, for sure.”AUTUMN SUNDAYRed Sox closer Craig Kimbrel tossed a football with pitching coach Dana LeVangie before throwing a baseball in the outfield.TRAINER’S ROOMRed Sox: 1B Mitch Moreland had what Cora called aggressive treatment on his right hamstring, which forced him from Game 2.Yankees: CF Aaron Hicks hopes to be back in the lineup after missing Game 2 because of right hamstring tightness, but Boone said it was unclear if the leg might need another day to deal.
