Red Sox eliminate rival Yankees, advance to ALCS

Boston Red Sox’s Brock Holt center celebrates with Ian Kinsler after hitting a two-run home

Next up: the World Champion Houston Astros in the seven-game American League Championship Series that will begin on Saturday night at Fenway Park.

Stanton's first foray into the playoffs didn't go as he had hoped, and he wound up hearing a familiar sound in The Bronx in a season-ending, 4-3 Game 4 loss to the Red Sox in the ALDS. He was bad at first base. Severino was removed with the bases loaded and nobody out, but relievers Lance Lynn and Chad Green quickly let the game get out of hand. Handed a big early lead, Nathan Eovaldi shut down his former team during New York's most lopsided defeat in 396 postseason games.

Red Sox: Porcello (17-7, 4.28 ERA) got two late outs in relief during the series opener last Friday, so his start was pushed back a day to Game 4. Sabathia got Xander Bogaerts to ground out, bringing up Ian Kinsler.

Finally, as Red Sox third baseman Rafael Devers was driving in their second run of the inning to make it 3-0, Boone got a pair of relievers heated up. Sabathia's night ended after that.

"We've gotten huge lifts from them", Aaron Hicks says.

"I do feel with that adjustment he'll be back to the guy that pitched in the middle of the summer and he is going to dominant and be a huge part of what we do", he said. "I don't understand why he's doing playoff games".

It wasn't pretty, but the Red Sox bullpen twice held on against the most home-run happy team to grace the regular season in major league history.

The menu included a caprese salad with balsamic glaze for an appetizer and roaster chicken with fingerling potatoes and sautéed asparagus for the main course.

Asked after Boston's win about Hernandez's strike zone - and Sabathia's critique of it - Porcello was pointed in his response.

"Nerve-racking", Rick Porcello said of the ninth.

Because "the Aaron Boone game" is already taken - Boone's 2003 pennant-winning homer will remain a landmark moment in Yankees lore, no matter the trajectory of his managerial career - this game, for the sake of historical convenience, is likely to be known, somewhat incongruously, as "the Angel Hernandez game".

We posted the first missed call above. He was getting hit hard from the first pitch he threw, a 95 mile-per-hour fastball that Mookie Betts turned into a 400-foot fly ball that died at the warning track in deep center under the heavy air on a humid evening.

The Cuban-born Hernandez is now embroiled in a racial discrimination lawsuit against Major League Baseball, stating that he has been passed over for promotion to crew chief and for postseason assignments. His suit claims he had been passed over for assignments because of a feud with Joe Torre, who is MLB's chief baseball officer.

Since Hernandez filed his suit in 2017, he was selected for the 2017 All-Star Game as well as postseason duty in 2017 and now 2018.
