'Embarrassing': Yanks routed by Red Sox 16-1, trail ALDS 2-1

NY is 19-9 in the postseason at new Yankee Stadium, where boisterous Bronx crowds try to intimidate.

Sabathia wouldn't blame his night - three earned runs allowed over three innings - on Hernandez, but that didn't stop Red Sox pitcher Rick Porcello from firing a shot toward the Yankees clubhouse. "It's easy to say, 'Hey, we're all in, here we go with 25 guys regardless of your role.' But you've got to talk to them - this is where we're going, this is your role".

Sanchez sprang to life in Game 2 on Saturday night, launching a pair of home runs, including a 479-foot, three-run bomb that put the game out of reach. "But he was born to be a manager, he's a natural leader". The big lefty was ejected from his last regular-season outing for hitting Tampa Bay catcher Jesus Sucre with a pitch during a testy game between division rivals on September 27. Given the Red Sox bullpen's well-earned reputation for occasionally dousing gasoline on a ballgame and waving around a match in the middle innings, I thought Alex Cora should have tried to squeeze another inning out of him, though he clearly missed his spots a few times in the fifth. But last night was for Brock Holt.

Verlander had a 5.57 ERA through his first eight playoff starts, but he won three of them; Martinez struggled in the 2003 playoffs and early in the 2004 postseason, but had already posted a win in his playoff debut in 1998 and threw 18 shutout innings over three appearances in 1999.




"And Aaron, he's one of our resident deejays, so he's got a pretty extensive playlist", Boone said later that day at Yankee Stadium, a smirk filling his face. But Craig did a hell of a job. "Hopefully, we can go out there and give them reason to keep building as the game unfolds". The bottom half of the Boston order was making life far too easy for the Yankees' pitching staff, which has allowed just four extra-base hits through two games. On the downside, they're now one loss from elimination. He turned to his primary setup man, Matt Barnes, who was Sale-like: three up, three down. "They push us throughout the whole season, and they push it even more here in the postseason, I think". Boston took Games 6 and 7 at Yankee Stadium on the way to its first World Series championship in 86 years.

What about having Porcello on the mound in the first place? It all added up to a 16-1 Red Sox blowout, as the majority of the 49,657 fans on hand were long gone by the inevitable finish in Game 3 of the A.L. Division Series.

His instincts, based on sound logic and Eovaldi's track record against the Yankees, paid off as Eovaldi completely suppressed the Yankees in Game 3. Four inherited runners were stranded in Game 2, the only other game Sox relievers had inherited runners.
