Red Sox eliminate rival Yankees, advance to ALCS

The Boston Red Sox were routing the New York Yankees in Game 3 of the American League Division Series when the ninth inning rolled around

Boston did so with class, pure joy and a hint of pettiness.

Craig Kimbrel and the Boston Red Sox held off the Yankees' ninth-inning rally that ended with a video replay, eliminating NY with a 4-3 victory Tuesday night that set up a postseason rematch with the World Series champion Houston Astros.

That song was "New York, New York" by Frank Sinatra.

According to the TBS telecast, Severino did not begin warming up until 7:32 p.m. ET, only 10 minutes before he threw his first pitch.

As any New York Mets fan (including this author) can attest, Angel Hernandez has been the worst umpire in baseball since just about forever.

Porcello said he had never been that nervous in a game before.

The DH went 0-for-4 and finished with just one extra-base hit against Boston. Brett Gardner was back in center, but Boone said he wouldn't hesitate to use Hicks in any role off the bench. The Red Sox produced their fourth seven-run inning in a postseason game and first since Game 1 of the 2007 World Series against the Colorado Rockies.

The only other position player to pitch in a postseason game was Toronto infielder Cliff Pennington against Kansas City in the 2015 AL Championship Series.

"The way he pitched against them this year, he matches up real well against them", said Cora of Price against the Astros. "Both games in Boston were good games, but we come here to win".

That was the last time they did.

Boston's 16-1 blowout Monday marked the most lopsided defeat for a home team in post-season history, and shortstop Didi Gregorius called it "an embarrassing day".

Boone acknowledged some regret in allowing ace Luis Severino to start the fourth inning down 3-0.

And we will never know what sort of fight the Yankees could have mustered over the remaining innings had Boone - after Severino, already down by three runs, loaded the bases with no outs on a pair of singles and a walk - inserted one of the many strikeout artists in his bullpen, rather than right-hander Lance Lynn, a starter for all but six of his 170 big league appearances over the past six seasons. "It's fantastic how he's getting jobs umpiring in these playoff games". "I think it was a sound decision".

"I was fine with the way CC was throwing the ball", Boone said.

Update (9:21 PM ET): It's now 4-0 as Christian Vásquez was able to sneak a solo home run over the fence in right field off of Zach Britton in the top of the fourth inning.

"They've got a great team over there". They won, somehow, and now and again it's left to the Yankees to deal with a winter of what-ifs. "They're one of the most potent offences in the game and it was a battle back and forth".
