Boston Red Sox vs. New York Yankees 10/8/18, Prediction & Odds

Severino and the rest of the Yankees strongly denied that he wasn't warmed up properly, something TBS broadcaster Ron Darling wondered about on the air, noting that he didn't see the Yankee righthander start throwing in the bullpen until 7:32, eight minutes before the time of the game's first pitch. After that point, Boston never looked back, running up the score and soaring to a 2-1 series lead with a chance to finish it off on Tuesday night. In 24 appearances and 23 starts against the Yankees, including the postseason, he is 10-9 with a 3.22 ERA.

Why he's here: Maybe it's fitting that a guy who played just 54 regular-season games in a Yankees uniform owns one of the biggest homers in the history of the franchise.

One day after hitting for the first postseason cycle in Major League Baseball history, Brock Holt wasn't in the starting lineup for the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday.

The Red Sox began the eighth inning with back-to-back singles off of Stephen Tarpley before Holt scored Rafael Devers on a ground-rule double, giving Boston a 12-1 lead.

"I told him it's a tough league", Cora said with a grin before the game at Yankee Stadium.

Aaron Judge walked past Boston's Fenway Park clubhouse early Sunday morning, Frank Sinatra's rendition of "New York, New York" blaring from a boom box atop the wheelie bag he was pulling with his left hand.

"It was a good night overall for everyone". He struck out 20 batters while walking just four. The trade deadline acquisition from Tampa Bay was overpowering, carving his way through seven innings in his first postseason start. Kinsler went on to say "I'm suprised at how bad an umpire he is". We have a great team, a great lineup and great starting pitching, so I think coming home is going to be good for us.

In the fifth inning, with the Red Sox up 10-1, Benintendi stole second base after drawing a walk.

Making his first playoff start this year, Holt opened the fourth with a single off Severino and capped the 26-minute outburst with a triple to right field. Steve Pearce played first and had an RBI single in the fourth.

With four more years and $127 million left on Price contract, there is plenty of time to debate whether his acute postseason woes are some sort of character flaw, such as a sheer inability to handle the pressure, or a random fluke of statistics and small sample sizes.

"We saw it in Game 1, and we saw it throughout the season".

Boston's Brock Holt connects for a two-run home run against Yankees backup catcher Austin Romine during the ninth inning of the Red Sox's Game 3 ALDS victory. He reached or exceeded 100 miles per hour seven times, topping out at 101.0 on a soft grounder to second by Miguel Andujar to end the second.

In a pivotal game that could drastically turn the momentum of the series, Eovaldi took the mound at Yankee Stadium, in front of a crowd that was very far from quiet, and absolutely dazzled for seven innings. It's not like when Jim Joyce could miss a call that cost Armando Galarraga a flawless game. Red Sox relievers have given up five in 11 innings. Of course, they're not going to say that.

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

It was New York's most lopsided defeat in 396 postseason games.

Game 4 is Tuesday night in the Bronx with Rick Porcello scheduled to pitch against NY lefty CC Sabathia. The meeting would happen one round later than in 2017, with the Astros finishing off a sweep of Cleveland and clinching a return to the ALCS.

Then there's the question of what happens if the Red Sox win game three.
