Boston escapes ninth-inning rally, ousts Yankees for trip to ALCS

Boston escapes ninth-inning rally, ousts Yankees for trip to ALCS

Don't expect to see a Red Sox decision for Game 4 until Tuesday, right before game time. Such a scenario would pit the 108-win Red Sox against the reigning world champs, the Houston Astros, who completed their AL Division Series sweep of the Cleveland Indians on Monday.

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.

NY mounted a last-ditch rally against wild closer Craig Kimbrel, scoring twice in the ninth inning. Gary Sanchez crushed a double (are we sure this guy hit.186 this year?), and after an 89-foot infield single by Torres, Brett Gardner brought in Sanchez for the Yankees first run.

Still, nothing Boone did or didn't do with his pitching staff would matter if the Yankees couldn't score.

With Luis Severino scheduled to pitch Game 3 of the ALDS, there's nothing like a bit of gossip surrounding the Yankees ace to get the juices flowing.

Home-field advantage is a thing in so many ways in an age where teams are tailored to the park they play 81 games in, but Yankee Stadium clearly has another one in the crowd, which has been nothing less than deafening for every postseason pitch over the last two Octobers.

Many had that same question after Monday's game, which NY lost 16-1. His first trip through the Boston order produced a series of line-drive outs, plus two singles, a walk and a Red Sox run.

With the stakes at their highest, however, the Yankees never left the yard in two home games versus Boston.

Trump blames Fed for stock rout, says central bank ‘ridiculous’
Now, explaining market actions through psychology is probably as much a mug's game as psychoanalyzing a Fed chair from afar. Efforts to cool down the market generally accompany rises in inflation, but there are few signs of that at the moment.

The Bronx is steeped with anticipation heading into tonight's Game 3 ALDS showdown with the Boston Red Sox.

All that changed in 2004, when Mariano Rivera was finally unable to close out the pesky Red Sox and they rallied for an unprecedented comeback from a 3-0 deficit to win the ALCS.

He finished with five RBI as Boston took a 2-1 series lead against NY.

Before the last two games, NY was 7-0 at home over the past two postseasons.

"All empires fall sooner or later", then-Red Sox president Larry Lucchino said that night.

Benintendi, already a Yankees nemesis, was on base four times and scored twice. And yeah, maybe the Yankees all but quit after the fourth inning.

Yankees: CF Aaron Hicks remained out of the lineup after missing Game 2 with tightness in his right hamstring, which forced him from the series opener Friday. Boone said he wouldn't hesitate to use Hicks in any role off the bench.

Update (9:21 PM ET): It's now 4-0 as Christian Vásquez was able to sneak a solo home run over the fence in right field off of Zach Britton in the top of the fourth inning.
