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

They were outscored 20-4 as the AL East champs took the best-of-five series 3-1 and advanced to the ALCS against defending World Series champion Houston.

"He wasn't shy about it", Benintendi said.

Red Sox manager has the utmost confidence in Porcello heading into Game 4 and expects the right-hander to turn in a quality start against a Yankees club that he's had success against this season.

Rick Porcello tossed five good innings for Boston to earn the win while Christian Vasquez hit the home run which would prove to be the difference in the game. "I know with the (Yankees-Red Sox) rivalry and everything, we've played some games there and it's been loud, but nothing like the way it's going to be on Monday". "It doesn't happen too often, but when you get to that point with your closer, that's who you're trying to get to and you look at it today and most of the series, they did a really fine job".

With the stakes at their highest, however, the Yankees never left the yard in two home games versus Boston. Gary Sanchez crushed a double (are we sure this guy hit.186 this year?), and after an 89-foot infield single by Torres, Brett Gardner brought in Sanchez for the Yankees first run.

Brasier, Barnes and Workman struggled in Game 1 while Rodriguez gave up a three-run bomb in Game 2.

None of it was going to matter because the Yankees' history-making lineup, in the second week of October, had suddenly stopped hitting, and it was because of that the Yankees lost their American League division series to their archrivals.

Bumped up a day in front of Porcello, he delivered a gem in his first postseason appearance. Just, I don't know.

Dent previously threw out the ceremonial first pitch ahead of Game 7 of the AL Championship Series in 2004.

"He got his normal pitches routine", Yankees manager Aaron Boone said.

Veteran left-hander CC Sabathia had faced four batters in the third inning, and the Red Sox had already plated a run, with another two runners on base, when Boone finally got his bullpen heated up.

With the home crowd behind him once again, Severino needs to control the strike zone early, and perhaps get a few more calls on the outside of the plate, than he did against Oakland - to keep his pitch count down.

Park. He is 0-3 with a 5.33 ERA in 12 career postseason outings, including four starts.

Severino's 10-2 record and 2.74 ERA this season at Yankee Stadium, including seven innings of one-run ball the last time he faced the Sox on September 19, should give him all the confidence needed to put the Yankees up 2-1 in the ALDS. The big lefty was ejected from his last regular-season outing for hitting Tampa Bay catcher Jesus Sucre with a pitch during a testy game between division rivals on September 27. He said Monday he definitely wants to play in 2019 - even if it's not for the Yankees.
