CC Sabathia Criticized Angel Hernandez After The Yankees' Elimination

Sale pitched a crucial scoreless inning in relief Tuesday night in the Red Sox's series-clinching win against the Yankees. Boston did so with class, pure joy and a hint of pettiness.

Porcello needed only 25 pitches to get through New York's lineup the first time and entered the fifth inning with only 40 pitches. Price did have a nice 2018 season, posting a 3.58 ERA with 9.1 K/9 over 30 regular starts. The 10 straight losses are the longest streak in postseason history.

A lanky, bearded 29-year-old right-hander, Porcello lived a traffic jam from Yankee Stadium in Chester, New Jersey, and is a 2007 graduate of Seton Hall Prep in West Orange - the baseball field there was renamed in his honor last year after he helped fund artificial turf and pro-style dugouts.

He needed 35 pitches to get through two innings and nicked Benintendi on the right shoulder with a slider on his first pitch of the third.

They scored three in the third off Sabathia (0-1), and it started with a sacrifice fly by Martinez.

Kinsler doubled over a leaping Gardner for a 2-0 lead and Nunez singled on the next pitch for his first RBI of the post-season. "I thought Angel Hernandez called a good game", he told reporters, per James Wagner of the New York Times. "It was tough in this first round for a while, but I think this is a group we have that is pretty special".

Sabathia's criticism mirrors that of three-time Cy Young victor Pedro Martinez, who sounded off on Hernandez's controversial calls on Monday night when three of his decisions at first base were overturned upon replay review. "He's absolutely awful. He was bad behind the plate today".

"Major League Baseball needs to do something about Angel", Martinez said.
