Yankees outfielder Clint Frazier always plays with emotion, and it came out in a different way during the eighth inning of Friday night’s game at Yankee Stadium when he whiffed on an outside slider. Furious at himself for chasing, Frazier pulled a Bo Jackson by snapping his bat in half over his knee. After screaming a few bad words heading back to the Yankees dugout, Frazier let off more steam there by whipping his bat pieces first and then his helmet into a walkway that leads to the locker room.

Forced from the field by COVID-19, the Miami Marlins returned with enough force to reach the playoffs for the first time since their 2003 championship. An NL-worst 57-105 a year ago, they sealed the improbable berth on the field of the team that Miami CEO Derek Jeter and manager Don Mattingly once captained.

Betts was traded from the Boston Red Sox to the Dodgers in February, and Los Angeles signed the 2018 AL MVP to a $365 million, 12-year deal that runs through the 2032 season.
