Yankees ace Luis Severino not seeing eye to eye with Pedro Martinez

Holt made the score 16-1 with his two-run shot in the ninth inning, while completing the cycle.

Hernandez missed 3 calls in the first 4 innings.

Romine joined Toronto infielder Cliff Pennington, who pitched in the 2015 AL playoffs against Kansas City, as non-pitchers to take the hill at this time of year.

"I always go to the bullpen 10 minutes before the game", Severino said.

The Yankees must win both Game 4 and Game 5 in order to advance to meet the Astros in the ALCS.

"This one I'll remember for a long time", said Holt, unaware of his achievement until told by a television reporter right after the final out. As with the Yankees, Houston hosted the Red Sox for a four-game series at Minute Maid Park, and then visited Fenway Park for a three-game set. We have a great team, a great lineup and great starting pitching, so I think coming home is going to be good for us. "I scooted up in the box a little bit, and I was going to be swinging at anything and try to hook anything". He even got offended when the Red Sox bunted at him to test his fielding capabilities in a 2017 game. He got a fly out to deep right-center, a slow chopper to third base and then fanned Hicks looking on a slider at the knees. A 10-1 lead is comfortable, sure, but against the Red Sox' shaky bullpen in that ballpark? MLB's replay system has had issues with long delays at times, and adding more time to a Yankees-Red Sox playoff game is never ideal.

Porcello put them in the position to win with five innings of one-run ball.

New York, which scored its lone run on a groundout by Didi Gregorius in the fourth, saw its seven-game home postseason streak snapped.

"I was just trying to use their aggressiveness against them and try and get some quick outs", Eovaldi said.

Devers singled twice, stole a base, scored two runs and knocked in another.

Severino looked out of sorts in the outing, but his rushed pregame warmup likely had little to do with it.

Facing elimination tonight - along with the threat of seeing the Red Sox pop bottles in their stadium for the second time in less than three weeks - the Yanks are sending CC Sabathia to the mound in an attempt to force a fifth game. Holt became the first player in postseason history to hit for the cycle.

Competing only against a Sun Belt college football matchup, some early season National Hockey League games and preseason NBA, this prime-time playoff matchup should see plenty of betting action tonight.

Boston first baseman Steve Pearce stretched for an outstanding catch that nipped Torres. Sabathia is still among the most competitive pitchers in the game. He last started on September 27th, so he'll be on eleven days rest tonight, and this season he had a 2.01 ERA (3.88 FIP) in eight starts with six or more days rest.

Apropos of nothing in this realm, perhaps, but credit that connection, in Boone's mind, for Yankee Stadium's average attendance being up more than 4,000 fans per game this year, and the turnstile total over the whole season ranking second in Major League Baseball.
