‘Embarrassing’: Yanks routed by Red Sox 16-1, trail ALDS 2-1

Adjust Comment Print

Boston Red Sox's Brock Holt follows through on a triple against the New York Yankees during the fourth inning of Game 3 of baseball's American League Division Series, Monday, Oct. 8, 2018, in New York. Kimbrel opened the ninth with a four-pitch walk to Aaron Judge, who had already homered off Kimbrel in the ninth inning of Game 1, before allowing a two-strike single to Didi Gregorius. Gleyber Torres hit a slow roller that third baseman Eduardo Nunez charged and threw in a hurry.

Following Benintendi's hit, the Red Sox extended the lead on a single to left by Steve Pearce off Chad Green. The Yankees immediately challenged and, with a sellout crowd standing and hoping, the out call was upheld after a 63-second review.

"They haven't lost a playoff game in a while there, and it's a tough place to play", Cora said. Houston won the first matchup 2-1, on April 30 at Minute Maid Park. When Porcello was informed of Sabathia's commentary on Hernandez, the Red Sox righty shut down the conversation.

A New Jersey native who grew up a Mets fan, Porcello held the Yankees to one run over five innings for his first postseason win.

Sale then entered when the Red Sox took the field.

Slugger Giancarlo Stanton, terrible all series, swung at a pair of curveballs nowhere near the plate to give Kimbrel a little breathing room, but he walked Luke Voit and hit Neil Walker with a pitch to force in a run. "For us to be on the other side kind of getting excited about our games and getting some energy towards playing, it just helps us play better".

Limousine crash: Vehicle 'failed inspection' and driver 'did not have proper licence'

Trump apologises to Kavanaugh over 'unfair' treatment

Intel's 9th generation processors are here to outperform the competition
All these new processors come with hardware fixes for the Meltdown Variant 3 and L1 Terminal Fault issues. Even the 9th generation designation is a sign of Intel's excitement (or marketing savvy, you decide).

Hernandez had three calls at first base overturned during the Red Sox's 16-1 win over the Yankees. For the second straight night, Yankees rookie manager Aaron Boone hesitated to remove his starting pitcher early. It certainly wouldn't be smart for Yankees starter C.C. Sabathia to plunk a guy on goal and risk getting ejected. Handed a big early lead, Nathan Eovaldi shut down his former team during New York's most lopsided defeat in 396 postseason games.

After racking up 100 regular-season wins and beating Oakland in the AL wild-card game, it was a humbling exit for a power-packed Yankees team that added reigning NL MVP Giancarlo Stanton last offseason and hit a major league-record 267 home runs this year.

Red Sox manager Alex Cora knows that Stadium magic first-hand; he got an up close and personal look last October as the Houston Astros' bench coach, and vividly remembers the Bronx faithful making Games 3 through 5 of the 2017 ALCS a miserable experience for the visitors. Brett Gardner walked twice in four plate appearances.

"I mean, we always play well here at home", Game 3 starter Luis Severino said. Rick Porcello is scheduled to pitch against NY lefty CC Sabathia.

Pitching on 11 days' rest and perhaps for the final time in pinstripes, Sabathia escaped a bases-loaded jam in the first when Kinsler hit an inning-ending flyout to Gardner in front of the left-field wall. If he pitches poorly, it'll be because he doesn't execute, not because he gets spooked.

Hernandez was working first base on Monday night.
