Red Sox strike first in ALDS Game 4, take 3-0 lead

Yankees ace Luis Severino not seeing eye to eye with Pedro Martinez New York Yankees: What the Red Sox moving up Nathan Eovaldi means for the Yanks
Sidney Guerrero | 12 October, 2018, 04:00

The part-time utilityman put the finishing touch on a Red Sox blowout, becoming the first player to hit for the cycle in a postseason game as Boston routed the New York Yankees 16-1 on Monday to seize a 2-1 lead in their best-of-five AL Division Series. Boston did so with class, pure joy and a hint of pettiness.

The Red Sox beat the Yankees 4-3 in Game 4 of their ALDS on Tuesday night to win the series 3-1 and advance to the ALCS.But man, did it ever come down to a heart-pounding finish for fans of both teams. But not only did they pop bottles-they did so to Frank Sinatra's "New York, New York".

Last year, it was the Yankees who reached the AL Championship Series before their surprising run ended with a Game 7 loss to the Astros.

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

Despite the minor blip in the radar, Severino will look to build off his solid, yet shortened Wild Card start - when he tossed four innings of shutout ball while striking out seven and allowing two hits. Rick Porcello is set to pitch for Boston while CC Sabathia will start for the Yankees.

With two outs, Gleyber Torres grounded out weakly to third, the throw beating him by a half-step - an outcome that was confirmed on replay review, forcing the Red Sox to delay their wild, teeming celebration at the centre of the infield for a few heart-pounding seconds. 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. "We felt the matchup was good for him". I hear guys all the time say how hard it is to play here.

NASA said that rescue teams have reached Hague and Ovchinin and they've been taken out of the capsule and were in good condition. One of the pictures showed Hague smiling and another had him sitting next to Russia's space agency chief Dmitry Rogozin.

Whether fatigue or dead-arm played any part in Severino's less than stellar summer, Martinez's supposed declaration of an injury to the Yankees No. 1 pitcher is not only inflammatory if untrue, but insanely underhanded if indeed accurate - considering Severino credited much of his 2017 success to the Hall of Famer.

That was the last time they did.

After hitting a record 267 home runs this season, the Yankees failed to hit any in Games 3 and 4, thus dropping their record to 10-23 this year, regular and post-season combined, when going homerless. "It's awesome how he's getting jobs umpiring in these playoff games". When Didi Gregorius lashed a double off Porcello in the fourth, it represented the Yankees' first extra-base hit since the seventh inning of Game 2.

Every starter had at least one hit for the Red Sox, who piled up 18 in all.

Zach Britton gave up an opposite-field homer to No. 9 batter Christian Vazquez in the fourth, and NY never fully recovered. They won, somehow, and now and again it's left to the Yankees to deal with a winter of what-ifs. "They push us throughout the whole season, and they push it even more here in the postseason, I think".
