5 things that doomed the Yankees vs. the Red Sox in ALDS

5 things that doomed the Yankees vs. the Red Sox in ALDS

Veteran Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia added to the growing criticism of umpire Ángel Hernández Tuesday night after NY lost to the Red Sox in Game 4 of the ALDS.

Moved back a day after throwing 15 pitches in the eighth inning of Game 1, Porcello (1-0) displayed command of the strike zone most of the night. Kinsler made it 2-0 with a double over Gardner's head in left, and Nunez made it 3-0 with a single to left.

Boston Red Sox relief pitcher Craig Kimbrel (46) celebrates after the last out in game four of the 2018 ALDS playoff baseball series against the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium.

To open their league championship series, the Red Sox and Houston Astros are sticking with their rotation from the ALDS. The 2016 AL Cy Young Award victor entered with a 0-3 in 12 previous postseason appearances, which included four starts.

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.

New York Yankees fans probably aren't too happy with the folks in charge of Major League Baseball's official Twitter account.

"He was bad behind the plate today, he's awful at first base", Sabathia continued. "I don't understand why he's doing playoff games".

After striking out only one batter during his three innings of work on Tuesday, the 38-year-old left-hander again sounded off on Hernandez's work, taking a moment out of his postgame press conference to blast the veteran.
