The Red Sox made history.
Aaron Judge won’t break the American League home run record at Yankee Stadium, remaining at 61 as New York headed on the road for its final four regular-season games after a 3-1 loss to the Baltimore Orioles. Judge struck out three times and walked once, disappointing a crowd of 44,332 that watched the Yankees regular-season home finale in rain for much of a chilly, blustery afternoon. New York finishes the regular season with four games at Texas. Judge took a called third strike from rookie Kyle Bradish leading off the first inning, then couldn’t check his swing and stranded the bases loaded when he struck out on a curveball in the second. He walked in the fifth and fanned against Bryan Baker in the seventh.
Willson Contreras got several standing ovations in what could be his final home game at Wrigley Field, Marcus Stroman threw six scoreless innings and the surging Chicago Cubs won their seventh straight with an 8-1 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. Nelson Velázquez drove in four runs to help Chicago match its best run since a seven-game streak late last year. The Cubs knocked out a Chase Anderson in a five-run first. The Reds have dropped six straight and 19 of 23. They’ll need to sweep a season-ending three-game series against the Cubs in Cincinnati to avoid the franchise’s second 100-loss season.
ARLINGTON, Texas — This was not the most impressive of victories.
DETROIT — The last time the Seahawks played in Detroit in 2018, Russell Wilson turned in the only perfect passer rating of his career in leading Seattle to a comfortable win.
Wissam Ben Yedder scored a hat trick as fifth-place Monaco thrashed Nantes 4-1 to extend its winning streak to four games in the French league. Switzerland forward Breel Embolo opened the scoring by heading home a rebound in the second minute. Ben Yedder doubled the lead with a chip four minutes later. The France international capitalized on a counterattack to make it 3-0 with a first-time effort in the 28th. He completed his hat trick from the penalty spot in the 62nd after Andrei Girotto had fouled Kevin Volland. Ten-man Lorient extended its winning streak to five games to consolidate third place by beating Lille 2-1. Fourth-place Lens edged Lyon 1-0
Chicago Blackhawks forward Boris Katchouk will be sidelined for four to six weeks with a left ankle sprain. The 24-year-old Katchouk played almost 12 minutes during a 3-0 preseason loss to Detroit on Saturday night. He was acquired in a multiplayer trade with Tampa Bay in March. The Blackhawks open the season on Oct. 12 at Colorado. The team also said forward Jujhar Khaira is day to day with a right ankle injury.

BALTIMORE — In a matchup of star quarterbacks, Josh Allen led the Buffalo Bills to a come-from-behind 23-20 win with a decisive final drive, handing the Ravens another loss after a second straight second-half collapse in Baltimore.
Miles Sanders ran for 134 yards and two touchdowns, Jalen Hurts threw for 204 yards and ran for a score and the Philadelphia Eagles beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 29-21. The Eagles spoiled the return of former coach Doug Pederson to Philadelphia. Pederson is the only coach to lead the Eagles to a Super Bowl championship. Pederson received a standing ovation when he walked out for pregame introductions. The Eagles are 4-0 and the lone undefeated team in the NFL. The Jaguars fell to 2-2.
Minnesota Vikings rookie Lewis Cine sustained a “lower-leg fracture” against the New Orleans Saints and will stay in London to undergo surgery. Coach Kevin O'Connell says team personnel will stay in the British capital with Cine. The 32nd pick overall in last spring’s NFL draft out of Georgia was blocking on a punt return when he sustained the injury. Cine clutched his left leg as he went down. Players from both teams took a knee as medical personnel stabilized Cine’s lower left leg and put him on a cart to leave the field.
