Home for good: Yankees eliminated by rival Red Sox in ALDS

If anyone on the Red Sox gets hit (or even brushed back) in Game 4, it would be Andrew Benintendi or Brock Holt. Gleyber Torres hit a slow roller that third baseman Eduardo Nunez charged and threw in a hurry.

Next up, the Houston Astros, who demolished the Indians in a three-game sweep. Yet manager Alex Cora didn't want to risk the series reaching that point.

"We're ready for another shot", Red Sox pitcher Rick Porcello said.

Holt completed the cycle with a solo home run off of Yankees catcher Austin Romine, who was on the mound for the final inning, in the ninth. To make matters worse, the Red Sox clinched while in NY. The season matchups included a four-game series in Houston and a three-game series in NY.

Wild from the start, he walked Aaron Judge to start the inning, then gave up a single to Didi Gregorius to bring the tying run to the plate in Giancarlo Stanton. I'd expect him to be strong again tonight before turning it over to one of the best pullpens in baseball. The Red Sox obliterated the Yankees 16-1 in Game 3, which saw them take a 10-0 lead after four innings. Boone said Hicks was doing "significantly better", and sitting him was a much more hard decision than it was Saturday. It certainly wouldn't be smart for Yankees starter C.C. Sabathia to plunk a guy on goal and risk getting ejected.

Boston took Games 6 and 7 at Yankee Stadium on the way to its first World Series championship in 86 years.

"I go [to the bullpen] 20 minutes before the game, I play catch, and then I always get on the mound 10 minutes before the game", Severino added. I was trying to hit a home run.

Boston Red Sox infielder Brock Holt accomplished a feat Monday no other player has done in the Major League Baseball postseason ever: hit for the cycle. Brett Gardner was back in center, but Boone said he wouldn't hesitate to use Hicks in any role off the bench.

Despite the lack of impact made by Hernandez, Yankees starting pitcher CC Sabathia lambasted the umpire after taking the loss.

Hernandez has had first base calls overturned in 14 of 18 video reviews during the last three regular seasons, according to Sports Info Solutions, and his 78 per cent overturn rate was above the 60 per cent overall figure for first base calls during that span, the company said. We can argue that Boone should have pulled Severino in the third inning, but it was criminal that the Yankees skipper sent the right-hander out for the fourth inning.

Severino's velocity appeared to be down a tick in the opening innings, and he allowed six runs on seven hits in three-plus innings. He didn't throw a pitch until 7:32. The call was overturned, giving NY a runner on second with one out. The stolen base, in particular, was laughable in that it actually offended anyone.
