Outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury is not in the Yankees’ lineup for Saturday’s game against the Blue Jays because of a sore left ankle. Ellsbury was injured when he slid into Toronto catcher Dioner Navarro in the ninth inning of New York’s 6-3 win Friday. Home plate umpire Mike Everitt initially ruled Ellsbury safe, but the call was overturned on review. Ellsbury remained in the game in the bottom half.

Arizona Diamondbacks third baseman Jake Lamb hit a grand slam with two outs in the eighth inning to lift the Diamondbacks to a 5-2 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Friday at Chase Field. Rockies left-hander Rex Brothers (4-6) walked the bases loaded to open the eighth inning before right-hander Adam Ottavino got first baseman Mark Trumbo to hit into a force out at home. Ottavino then struck out Miguel Montero. Ottavino could not handle Trumbo’s comebacker cleanly, a ball that could have been a double play.

Chris Archer took issue with the way David Ortiz admired his home run in their last matchup – and he wasn’t shy about expressing it. With both the Tampa Bay Rays and Boston Red Sox out of contention, the hostility could boil over Friday night when they meet for the first time since Ortiz homered off Archer. Ortiz hit a three-run shot off Archer (8-6, 3.09 ERA) in Boston’s 3-2 road win on July 27, enjoying his homer with a celebratory bat flip. Afterward, Archer said Ortiz “feels like he’s bigger than the game,” reiterating words from former Rays pitcher David Price from earlier in the season.

As Danny Valencia rounded first base on his three-run pinch-homer in the seventh inning on Wednesday night, he gave a little fist pump. The infielder’s first home run for the Blue Jays and his third of the season sparked Toronto to a 5-2 victory over the Boston Red Sox. Valencia, who usually plays against left-handed pitching, batted for third baseman Juan Francisco. The Red Sox countered with right-handed reliever Junichi Tazawa and Valencia pounded a 2-0 fastball to left to give Toronto a 4-2 lead. View full post on Yahoo Sports – MLB – Toronto Blue Jays News

Boston Red Sox slugger Mike Napoli has seen one home run. Therefore, he has seen them all. Napoli, staying on message, said he was not impressed with the distance and height of his 451 foot home run that landed in the fifth deck at Rogers Centre on Tuesday night. Napoli probably was more into, emotionally, that his three-run shot was part of a seven-run 11th inning that keyed an 11-7 victory against the Toronto Blue Jays.  The Associated Press reports that Napoli’s home run was the first hit into the fifth deck in more than three years, and the 17th in the stadium’s 25-year history. To him, it was “just another homer.” ”I was just trying to hit the ball hard somewhere, trying to get a single with a runner in scoring position,” Napoli said. ”I guess it’s pretty cool.” I guess this is how Napoli usually is, as Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe tweeted: Say this for Napoli, he’s never impressed with how far he hits one. “Same as if it went in the first row,” he said. — Pete Abraham (@PeteAbe) August 27, 2014   Probably the most famous (and the first) fifth-deck home run at Rogers came in the 1989 ALCS, when the stadium was called SkyDome and our friend Jose Canseco took Mike Flanagan to the deepest regions of Canada.   In a way, or maybe more than one way, Napoli is right. His blast isn’t all that close to the longest home run at Rogers, according to a list published by Blue Jay Hunter . Those honors go to Manny Ramirez, who went 491 (or about 44,000 metres) against Chris Carpenter in 2001:   There’s no such thing as style points. They don’t put pictures on scorecards. None of these fifth-deckers count for two home runs. Napoli’s right and all, but, you’d think a guy with a beard like his would try to squeeze every ounce of fun from a home run as he seems to squeeze the fun from life: Mike Napoli is walking around Boston drunk and shirtless #DayMade
