Eovaldi to start Game 3 instead of Porcello

BOSTON MA.- OCTOBER 3 Boston Red Sox second baseman Brock Holt bunts as the Red Sox practice prior to the ALDS at Fenway Park

Despite having a 5.57 ERA in the second half of the season and throwing four-plus innings in the wild-card game, Yankees RHP Luis Severino is confident he can give NY a 2-1 series lead over the Boston Red Sox in Game 3 of the ALDS on Monday.

Devers, Holt and Vazquez are a combined 3-for-35 lifetime against Yankees Game 3 starter Luis Severino.

"I watched pretty much all the games", the Yankees manager said. "That's kind of what we've been waiting for to some degree, where he can take over a game on offense". The Yankees stole away home-field advantage.

But both Yankees management and the clubhouse realize that Sanchez's presence in the lineup remains an integral piece to defeating the Red Sox in the team's pursuit of a 28 World Series championship.

Makes a baseball fan excited about what will happen in the final few games of this ALDS.

At one point, Brasier was caught telling El Gary to "get back in the f-ing box".

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. They are a flawless 7-0 in their seven home games since the start of last postseason, and, in those seven games, they've outscored their opponents 42-14.

"I just talked to him and told him just be accountable". He popped 31 homers for Boston in 2003 and followed that up with a 41-homer, 139-RBI, 145-OPS+ season in 2004 (he finished fourth in the AL MVP voting, which was announced after the postseason). Last October, Willson Contreras hit a 491-foot homer for the Cubs.

This time past year, Aaron Boone and Alex Cora were experiencing the crowd at Yankee Stadium from very different positions.




"I can't tell you the specific details because they're going to know", he said. But a homer is a homer. "I'm excited. This is what we play for coming out of spring training".

Injured first baseman Mitch Moreland, who usually starts against right-handed pitching, is also out of the lineup for Steve Pearce.

"He left something there for me and I was able to hit it well", Sanchez said.

"You've got to ask [Judge] if it was something for us", Cora said, "but I doubt it". "It's an honor to me". Eleven days later, NY won its 22nd World Series title.

Sanchez is now 7-for-14 against Price in his career with six home runs. "We saw him start to get that back towards the end of the season". Although Sanchez told ESPN's Buster Olney, postgame, that he didn't think much of it, considering Brasier struck out Sanchez with a 97 miles per hour fastball, Brasier's brashness went unwarranted upon Sanchez's nail in the coffin homer, two frames later.

Sanchez's sudden offensive explosion came at a time he needed it the most.

He endured an abysmal season that included two stints on the disabled list, a.186 batting average, and a league-leading 18 passed balls in only 89 games.

"That's probably just something they do when they win", the manager said. "If he's doing that, he's going to be a risky hitter". The veteran pitcher should know how to work his way out of early struggles. "Every single pitch, they're locked in", Judge said.

Severino's home-road splits have been fairly significant this season.
