Astros, Red Sox announce starters for first 2 ALCS games

The Yankees’ last hope doesn’t need video help or butterflies

The Yankees’ last hope doesn’t need video help or butterflies

Boston did so with class, pure joy and a hint of pettiness.

The Red Sox topped the Yankees 4-3 in Game 4 on Tuesday night, barely surviving a shaky 9th inning that saw the game end on a review. But not only did they pop bottles-they did so to Frank Sinatra's "New York, New York".

Sabathia's Game 4 start was the shortest of his postseason career as he went three innings allowing five hits, three runs and just one strikeout on the night.

Astros manager A.J. Hinch announced the Astros starters for the first two games of the American League Championship Series, which will begin in Boston on Saturday.




First off, Kimbrel allowed a number of baserunners, loading the bases and then hitting a batter, to make it a 4-2 game. The Yankees plated their only run in the bottom of that frame.

"He's absolutely awful", said Sabathia, who gave up three runs on five hits over three innings, with two walks and a strikeout.

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. "We have a bad night, we don't get to play". The lovely thing about sports is that whether you lose 16-1 or 1-0, it counts the same and there's no better pitcher for this spot than CC Sabathia.

Hernandez, a 57-year-old born in Cuba, filed a racial discrimination lawsuit against Major League Baseball in 2017, claiming he has been passed over for promotions and postseason assignments. "He's absolutely bad. He was awful behind the plate today; he's awful at first base". "I thought Angel Hernandez called a good game".
