Red Sox Elect To Start Nathan Eovaldi In Game 3 Versus Yankees

Stanton comes up small in big game as Yankees face must-win at Fenway

Stanton comes up small in big game as Yankees face must-win at Fenway

Rick Porcello is scheduled to start Game 4 on Tuesday and Chris Sale would be in line to pitch a Game 5, if necessary, at Fenway Park on Thursday. "If we do that, we're going to be in good shape".

Forty years to the day after New York Yankees catching legend Thurman Munson launched a pivotal, go-ahead home run in Game 3 of the 1978 ALCS, the Bronx Bombers' current catcher, Gary Sanchez, had a similarly special postseason day at the plate.

"That's it", Cora said, via Christopher Smith of MassLive. "I'm excited. This is what we play for coming out of spring training". Enough damage had already been done, given a dormant edition of the Red Sox offence had shown up for Game 2. Hicks tried to talk his way into the lineup Saturday night, and he's doing his best to do the same ahead of Game 3. "We like to hear that song sometimes when we win a big game".

"I'm hopeful he's available", Boone added. "He fought me today".

Gary Sanchez smashed two home runs and Aaron Judge blasted another to power the New York Yankees over arch-rival Boston 6-2 on Saturday in the Major League Baseball playoffs. Unusual on paper, perhaps, but easily explained by both hurler and skipper. It's not like some of those small ballparks out there where there's no place to go. We have to pitch to blue. I just didn't break. "I guess he told you guys he slipped or something like that". The ALDS is now a best-of-three series with the next two games at Yankee Stadium.

"I think it's fun", Boone said.

And now despite a stellar career in the regular season, you have to wonder if the left-hander will ever win a playoff game before retirement beckons.

All that matters tomorrow is that Severino goes out and pitches like the ace the Yankees know he is.

"I don't know. I'm not sure", he said. "If he does that, hopefully, we'll be in a good spot at any time when we take him out tomorrow".

With this Price nearly always wrong at this time of year, the early damage was enough to allow the Yankees to square the ALDS at a win apiece.

Unfortunately for the 108-win Sox, the pressure cooker that is playoff baseball was limited for all of one batter, as Aaron Judge hit a 445-foot homer over the Green Moster in left-center to give NY a quick 1-0 lead.

At one point, Brasier was so angry about Sanchez's delay tactics that cameras caught him telling the catcher to "get back in the f--ing box". "I think they - from top to bottom - they can hit the ball out of the ballpark. That's all you've got to do". "I don't know why that is, but I always have confidence in myself". I was ready to go.

But on Saturday night, the player feeling the crush of those walls, and hearing the vitriol of the crowd, wore the home-white trousers and home-red jersey of the Red Sox. After a pair of back-to-back walks to Gleyber Torres and Brett Gardner, Andrew McCutchen got in on the fun, too, this time with an RBI single that inflated the Yankees' lead to 3-0. This season alone, the 33-year-old left-hander is 0-3 with a 10.34 ERA against NY.

-Last word from Boone is this, his answer when asked how his friendship with Alex Cora is handling this series: "There were a couple text messages, congrats, things like that, and we spoke a little bit before Game 1, so it's not weird or anything".
