ST. PETERSBURG Womens Phillip Lindsay Jersey , Fla. (AP) — CC Sabathia protected his teammates, not his wallet.The 38-year-old left-hander got his 246th win and moved the New York Yankees closer to hosting next week’s AL wild-card game but may have cost himself a $500,000 bonus.Sabathia was ejected from Thursday’s 12-1 win over the Tampa Bay Rays in the sixth inning for hitting Jesus Sucre on a leg in retaliation for Tampa Bay reliever Andrew Kittredge throwing a pitch behind Austin Romine.Making his final regular-season start, Sabathia had thrown 55 pitches over five innings to raise his season innings total to 153 — two shy of a $500,000 performance bonus in his contract.“I don’t really make decisions based on money, I guess,” Sabathia said. “I just felt like it was the right thing to do.”Yankees manager Aaron Boone didn’t rule out Sabathia (9-7) getting into a game this weekend in Boston.“That’s definitely above my pay grade,” Boone said when asked whether New York should still pay the bonus.New York (98-61) ensured its winningest season since going 103-59 en route to the 2009 World Series title and moved two games ahead of Oakland (96-63) for hosting the Oct. 3 wild-card game. The Yankees hold the tiebreaker, which means one more Yankees win or Athletics loss ensures the winner-take-all game would be in the Bronx. The wild-card winner advances to a Division Series against AL East champion Boston.“We know what’s at stake, and we took a good step toward it,” Yankees slugger Giancarlo Stanton said after homering twice to raise his season total to 37.Miguel Andujar and Luke Voit also went deep for the Yankees. New York’s 260 homers tied the 2005 Texas Rangers for the second-most in major league history, four behind the 1997 Seattle Mariners.With New York ahead 7-0, Sabathia hit Jake Bauers on the knuckles of his right hand with an 88 mph two-seam fastball with two outs in the fifth.Kittredge threw a 93 mph fastball behind Romine’s neck with his initial pitch in the sixth, and plate umpire Vic Carapazza issued a warning to both benches.“I think there’s no question there was intent. You throw one over the head, I hated it,” Boone said.Sabathia started out of the Yankees dugout and had to be intercepted by Boone.“I think we all took exception to that, I think, anytime you feel a player’s safety is in jeopardy,” Sabathia said.Romine turned to the catcher and asked Sucre, “Why?”“You can’t throw balls at people’s head, plain and simple,” Romine said.After New York opened an 11-0 lead Cheap Kerryon Johnson Jersey , Sabathia hit Sucre the lower left leg with a 93 cutter on his first pitch in the bottom half, causing Carapazza to eject the pitcher and Boone.Sucre declined to comment, while Kittredge said it’s “just baseball.”“Obviously that was a high-and-tight pitch,” Kittredge said. “That’s not a comfortable feeling for him. It is what it is, I guess.”Sabathia stared and pointed toward the Tampa Bay bench while walking to the Yankees dugout after being tossed. Relievers in both bullpens stood up but the other players remained in the dugouts.“You don’t throw at someone’s head. He did what he felt he needed to do,” Stanton said of Sabathia.Sabathia, likely the Yankees’ fourth starter during the postseason, allowed one hit, lowered his season ERA to 3.65 and struck out five to increase his career total to 2,986. He has a $10 million base salary in his one-year contract.Luis Cessa and Jonathan Loaisiga completed a two-hitter, giving New York its third straight series win. Cessa gave up C.J Cron’s homer in the seventh.Andujar hit a three-run homer during a four-run first off Jaime Schultz (2-2). Aaron Judge had a sacrifice fly and Voit hit an RBI double in a three-run fourth.New York’s four-run sixth included back-to-back solo homers by Voit and Stanton, who had his 32nd multihomer game.Tampa Bay’s Tommy Pham walked in the ninth to extend his on-base streak to 29 games, the longest active run in the AL.TRAINER’S ROOMYankees: CF Aaron Hicks (left hamstring) should start Friday night and SS Didi Gregorius (right wrist) also could also return during the final regular-season series. Both ran the bases and took batting practice, while Gregorius took grounders. “Looking good for both of them,” Boone said. … Neil Walker started at third base, one day after getting hit by a pitch on the left shin.Rays: 3B Matt Duffy (right quadriceps) will have his status evaluated Friday.UP NEXTYankees: LHP J.A. Happ (16-6, including 6-0 with Yankees) is scheduled to start Friday night at Boston, which lines him up to pitch against Oakland on regular rest. RHP Luis Severino starts Sunday, which lines him up for a Division Series opener at Fenway Park on Oct. 5. RHP Rick Porcello (17-7) starts Friday for the Red Sox.Rays: RHP Tyler Glasnow (2-7) starts Friday for the Rays and LHP Thomas Pannone (4-1) for Toronto. ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Shohei Ohtani knows what’s possible after Tommy John surgery from watching Andrew Heaney’s pitching performances this season for the Los Angeles Angels.At the plate, Ohtani keeps doing things that aren’t possible for many other sluggers.Ohtani hit a tiebreaking homer in the eighth inning, sending the Angels to a 3-2 victory and a three-game sweep of the Texas Rangers on Wednesday night.Although he is scheduled for elbow ligament replacement surgery next week http://www.lionscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-kerryon-johnson-jersey , Ohtani is still slugging away. He matched his professional single-season high for homers after hitting 22 in Japan two seasons ago.“It’s two completely different things — different countries, different pitchers, different ballparks, different balls,” Ohtani said. “But being able to accomplish my career high in my first year in the big leagues, it was a huge thing for me. I’m proud of that.”Ohtani had an early RBI single before he connected off Rangers reliever Chris Martin (1-5), his former teammate in Japan with the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters. The two-way rookie went the opposite way, bouncing it off the top of the left-field wall.“He’s a special hitter,” Texas interim manager Don Wakamatsu said. “He’s pulling balls down the right-field line. Then you put a ball a little elevated out and away, (and) he takes it away. It shows you what kind of leverage he has with that body.”The Angels were in position to win because of Heaney, who struck out 10 and yielded two runs over seven innings in a strong finish to the Angels left-hander’s first full season back from Tommy John.“He was very solid throughout the whole year, very consistent,” Ohtani said of Heaney. “I’m really impressed by how he was able to stay healthy and finish the season strong.”After making just six starts in the previous two years, Heaney was the only consistently successful starter in Los Angeles’ injury-wracked rotation this season. While pitching 180 innings, he became the first Angels left-hander to surpass 175 strikeouts since C.J. Wilson did it in 2013, and his 100 pitches against the Rangers were the most by any Angels pitcher since July 22.“I’m happy I kept us in it,” Heaney said. “Other than the first couple of weeks (of the season), being able to take the ball every fifth or sixth day, that’s what every pitcher wants to do. I think there’s still a lot of juice to be squeezed … but I’m proud of that.”Taylor Ward also homered for the Angels (78-81), who need three more victories in their season-ending series with Oakland to avoid having three consecutive losing seasons for the first time since 1992-94.Jose Alvarez (6-4) pitched a perfect eighth inning in his 76th appearance of the season. Jim Johnson pitched the ninth for his second save.Adrian Beltre and Jurickson Profar homered for the Rangers, who have lost four of five and eight of 10.Justin Upton doubled for the Angels’ first hit in the fourth inning and scored on a single by Ohtani, who has driven in runs in three consecutive games.ADRIAN’S BELTBeltre crushed his 15th homer of the season over the ficus trees in center field in the second inning Authentic Kerryon Johnson Jersey , giving him eight homers in September during a fitting finish to what could be the final season of his remarkable career.“That’s the idea, but I don’t think as a team we are doing a good job right now,” Beltre said. “Obviously as a team we want to finish strong, but individually I’m feeling a little better.”The RBI was the 39-year-old Beltre’s 1,704th, moving him even with Frank Thomas for 22nd in baseball history. He has 48 homers and 168 RBIs against the Angels, both tops for any opponent in his career.“You look up at the record books and he just keeps climbing in every category,” Wakamatsu said. “There is no mystery why he’s where he’s at. The work ethic, the character, the intelligence, it’s everything he puts in.”Beltre hasn’t decided whether to play again next season, but he got a warm send-off from his Dallas-area fans last weekend just in case.TRAINER’S ROOMRangers: SS Elvis Andrus was shaken up in the fifth inning when he broke his bat and hit himself in the back of the head with the barrel on his follow-through. Andrus didn’t really run to first while he was thrown out, and he walked gingerly back to the dugout, but stayed in the game.Angels: Reliever Ty Buttrey has been shut down for the season with right knee bursitis, Scioscia revealed after the game. Buttrey had been the Angels’ closer recently, and he has a 3.31 ERA and four saves since arriving in a midseason trade.UP NEXTRangers: Ariel Jurado (4-5, 6.66 ERA) takes the mound Thursday when Texas opens a four-game series at Seattle to close the regular season.Angels: After a day off, Jaime Barria (10-9, 3.54 ERA) will make the last start of his impressive rookie season Friday when the Angels open their final series at home against the Oakland Athletics.
