Red Sox eliminate rival Yankees, advance to ALCS

  • Yankees fans greet David Price with loud cheers and'M-V-P chants

And we will never know what sort of fight the Yankees could have mustered over the remaining innings had Boone - after Severino, already down by three runs, loaded the bases with no outs on a pair of singles and a walk - inserted one of the many strikeout artists in his bullpen, rather than right-hander Lance Lynn, a starter for all but six of his 170 big league appearances over the past six seasons.

Red Sox manager Alex Cora confirmed on Ordway, Merloni & Fauria Wednesday afternoon that the left-hander will start Sunday night against the Astros, and as expected, Chris Sale will start Game 1. "It's fantastic how he's getting jobs umpiring in these playoff games".

The New York Yankees were 6-0 at home in the postseason a year ago, and enter Monday's ALDS Game 3 with the AL Wild Card Game win in their pinstriped back pocket.

Bucky Dent threw out the first pitch ahead of Game 4 of the American League Division Series in the Bronx, some 40 years after his go-ahead, three-run home run crushed Boston fans' hearts in a one-game AL East tiebreaker. But Sabathia was allowed to stay in the game to give up an RBI double to Ian Kinsler and an RBI single to Eduardo Nunez that made it 3-0.

The Boston Red Sox are moving on. Brett Gardner was back in center, but Boone said he wouldn't hesitate to use Hicks in any role off the bench. "But he shouldn't be around these playoff games".

In possibly his final start of a 10-year run with the Yankees, Sabathia allowed three runs on five hits in three innings. "He's a bad umpire". "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".

"They got momentum on their side and never really slowed down", Robertson said.

Virgin Galactic to be in space 'in weeks,' owner Branson says
After that, it will be closer to its goal of offering commercial spaceflight to the 600 patrons who have paid $250,000 for a ride. Branson was referring to the Virgin Galactic spaceship being developed by the company for future commercial trips into space.

"I mean, we always play well here at home", Game 3 starter Luis Severino said.

Yankees and Red Sox fans are, of course, nothing if not patient and understanding...

Asked after Boston's win about Hernandez's strike zone - and Sabathia's critique of it - Porcello was pointed in his response.

Watch the lowlights of Angel Hernandez's tough night above, via TBS. 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.

The Cuban-born Hernandez is now embroiled in a racial discrimination lawsuit against Major League Baseball, stating that he has been passed over for promotion to crew chief and for postseason assignments.

Twitter absolutely went off on Hernandez during and after the game and he was actually trending in the USA after.

Since Hernandez filed his suit in 2017, he was selected for the 2017 All-Star Game as well as postseason duty in 2017 and now 2018.
