Red Sox (barely) prove they have the edge in baseball’s greatest rivalry

The Red Sox withstood a furious ninth-inning rally by the New York Yankees to win 4-3 and eliminate their longtime rivals with a four-game ALDS victory.

We will never know what would have happened had Boone pulled starting pitcher Luis Severino before the top of the fourth inning, when it was painfully clear the right-hander did not have the requisite weapons on this night to hold off Boston's relentless offense.

"We're very fortunate to have a guy in (Cora) who is not very far removed from playing the game, which definitely helps", Barnes said.

The possible deciding Game 4 will be played at Yankee Stadium on Tuesday.

"I told him it's a tough league", Red Sox manager Alex Cora said with a smile. Christian Vazquez was behind the plate for the second straight night after Sandy Leon started the first two games.

Well, that question is a lot more complicated than one might think. He hit the home run off Yankees catcher Austin Romine, who was in the game to give relievers a rest before Game 4.

"He's absolutely bad", Sabathia told reporters after giving up three runs on five hits over three innings, walking two and striking out one. Kelly threw 20 of his 25 pitches for strikes and flashed triple-digit heat against NY in Game 2, topping out at 101.2 miles per hour on his last pitch of the third inning.

If the Red Sox win the ALDS, then Houston will travel to Boston for Game 1. In the 2004 ALCS, the Red Sox became the first big league team to overcome 3-0 postseason deficit, winning the final two games on the road and going on to sweep the World Series for its first title since 1918.

Two runs had come around to score in the inning, one on a hit batsman and the second on a warning-track sacrifice fly by Gary Sanchez. His first trip through the Boston order produced a series of line-drive outs, plus two singles, a walk and a Red Sox run. "I talked to them last night".

The Red Sox made it 4-0 when Vazquez lined a 2-1 fastball into the right field seats off Zach Britton. He inserts utility man Brock Holt at second base Monday night in Game 3, and Holt hits for the cycle. "If you hear that from Yankees staff or something like that, maybe you can believe it, but I don't know where you get that from".

It can never be easy in NY, and it wasn't for the Red Sox in the ninth inning. There was a TBS report that he began to warm up only 10 minutes before the game began, but Boone insisted he had enough time to get ready.

A Cy Young candidate during the first half of the 2018 season, Severino was 10-2 with a 2.74 ERA in 15 starts prior to the Midsummer Classic. NY manager Aaron Boone said Hicks was doing "considerably better", and sitting him was a much more hard decision than it was Saturday.
