ALDS: Brock Holt, Red Sox take series lead vs. Yankees

After the two teams split the first two games of the ALDS in Boston, the Red Sox absolutely trucked the Yankees in Game 3 of the ALDS.

The Red Sox attempt to win the series in Game 4, which begins at 8:07 p.m. on Tuesday at Yankee Stadium in New York City.

Now the Red Sox know Chris Sale isn't their only starter who can shine under the October lights. Eovaldi allowed one run and five hits in seven innings, throwing 72 of 97 pitches for strikes. Jackie Bradley Jr. ended the contest 1-for-3. The defending champs just swept the Indians and are itching for some national exposure, as star third baseman Alex Bregman made clear after beating the Indians in Game 3, wondering if Tiger Woods would be asked to tee off before noon or Floyd Mayweather to fight on an undercard. The former Red Sox infielder was there in the flesh, sitting on the bench in the visitor's dugout, helping guide the Houston Astros through the Bronx and into the World Series. The 30-year-old is not as effective against left-handed pitching, and the Yankees are sending veteran southpaw CC Sabathia to the mound as the Red Sox look to eliminate their rivals from the postseason. Boston was up a footbally 10-0 after the top of the fourth inning, which was not a result anyone expected, but one that does have some precedence. If he's up with the bases empty and two outs tonight, he might want to be prepared to duck. Ian Kinsler, 2B; 7. Especially when the Yankees may need to put a little extra on tonight's game with their season on the line and the fact that they're coming off an absolute spanking. Of note, he brought in Porcello in relief in Game 1 and he retired Miguel Andújar and Gary Sánchez.

Home-field advantage is a thing in so many ways in an age where teams are tailored to the park they play 81 games in, but Yankee Stadium clearly has another one in the crowd, which has been nothing less than deafening for every postseason pitch over the last two Octobers. He also pointing out that, by maintaining an aggressive approach on offense, the Red Sox could have forced the Yankees to dig deeper into their bullpen, potentially providing Boston with a useful edge in Tuesday's Game 4. He came in to score the Red Sox's fourth run on a bases-loaded walk issued by Lance Lynn.

Russian President Vladimir Putin also insisted that Petrov and Boshirov were "civilians" and not agents of Russia's military.

"I don't know where he got that, but I didn't say [anything] about [being] hurt", Severino said. "I saw Romine was on the mound, so you get a little antsy when a position player is on the mound". They also drew some criticism for breaking some of the game's many "unwritten rules" in the process.

With a chance to finish off the Yankees, Cora couldn't resist using Sale to bridge the gap to Kimbrel.

Next up: The defending champs, who rolled through Cleveland in sweeping their series. He actually faced three batters in Game 1 of this series, but he only threw 15 pitches, so he shouldn't be compromised here. Sale didn't pitch in that series, but neither did Verlander. A 10-1 lead is comfortable, sure, but against the Red Sox' shaky bullpen in that ballpark?
