Brief but intense Yankees-Red Sox postseason rivalry has produced many heroes

Adjust Comment Print

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.

Hernandez was overruled on 3-of-4 video reviews of his decisions at first base during Boston's 16-1 rout of the New York Yankees on Monday night.

The New York Yankees were 6-0 at home in the postseason past year, and enter Monday's ALDS Game 3 with the AL Wild Card Game win in their pinstriped back pocket.

"How does he know what time I normally go out?"

Twitter absolutely went off on Hernandez during and after the game and he was actually trending in the USA after.

The Yankees must win both Game 4 and Game 5 in order to advance to meet the Astros in the ALCS.

J.D. Martinez and the 108-win Red Sox reached the AL Championship Series for the first time since 2013. Furthermore, the Red Sox are really good, and Sabathia has a significant third time through the order penalty.

It's a new phenomenon for numerous young players on the Yankees, who only have the last two seasons, and maybe the 2015 Wild Card Game, to draw on. NY with six homers and 28 RBI.

The Red Sox were just a little better than the Yankees all year, a trend that continued in this series. "I know with the (Yankees-Red Sox) rivalry and everything, we've played some games there and it's been loud, but nothing like the way it's going to be on Monday". "You don't usually see that", the 58-year-old analyst said on TBS's telecast (via Awful Announcing). I didn't expect anybody to say that he was late warming up. "If we stay in the same rhythm coming here playing at home, especially in front of all these fans, just keep the same rhythm and everything going and go in the right direction, we'll be fine". Andrew Benintendi plated three more runs with an RBI double in the next at-bat. Against the Red Sox this season: 1-0 in two starts, 3.46 ERA, 15 strikeouts, five earned runs on 10 hits over 13 innings. NY is 8-3 in its last 11 home games versus the Red Sox. First pitch from Yankee Stadium is slated for 8:07 p.m.

"So I was saying before that, on a 10-1 score, Benintendi took off to run and stole a base". Ian Kinsler drove in two runs in a three-run third inning, and Christian Vazquez homered in the fourth inning.

Though he got out of that second inning after only surrendering one run, Severino's struggles started on his second trip through the Red Sox lineup.

Despite the minor blip in the radar, Severino will look to build off his solid, yet shortened Wild Card start - when he tossed four innings of shutout ball while striking out seven and allowing two hits.

Just speaking from experience, I've never warmed up a starting pitcher who put his foot on the pitching rubber in the bullpen eight minutes before the first pitch was supposed to be thrown in a major league game. They absorbed every blow the Yankees landed all year, including New York's 6-2 victory in Game 2 that sent the series back to the Bronx with a chance for the Yankees to clinch at home.
