"If you hear that from Yankees staff or something like that, maybe you can believe it, but I don't know where you get that from".

"Trying to keep the ball in the ballpark, try and get quick outs and try not to let the crowd get too insane and get behind them and get them going", Eovaldi said of his Stadium strategy earlier this year. I need a home run for a cycle.

Just like that, Holt has become the first player in Major League Baseball history to hit for the cycle in the postseason. "I scooted up in the box a little bit", he said.

And the home run came off a position player. "I was just trying to use their aggressiveness against them and just get some quick outs". "It's something I'll remember for a long, long time". But that's what took place Monday night at Yankee Stadium.

Should the Red Sox win Game 3, they have a former Cy Young Award victor pitching basically in his hometown (Porcello went to Seton Hall Prep) to try to advance Boston to the ALCS; if they lose, though, then they have the same former Cy Young Award victor pitching to keep them alive instead of a wild card in Eovaldi.

One afternoon this week, some of his Red Sox teammates and coaches were making light of Mookie Betts, their likely MVP and most unassuming friend.

He reportedly said to a female congresswoman, publicly, that he would not sexually assault her because she was not worthy of him . He also echoed Trump when he called on his social media followers to "make Brazil great". "We have to believe in our Brazil.

"Against Tanaka, we got a little overaggressive, swinging at a lot of pitches out of the zone", Bogaerts said. Steve Pearce's RBI single through the left side and Holt's two-run triple to right against Chad Green were the icing on the cake, as Boston built a 10-0 lead. Masahiro Tanaka picked up the win as he allowed one earned run on three hits with four strikeouts and one walk over five innings. That was the last straw, so Boone came out to the mound - surely to bring in a talented and experienced reliever, right?

"It was a special moment for me", Eovaldi said.

Hernandez's troubles started in the second inning, when Didi Gregorius bunted with Giancarlo Stanton on first and the umpire ruled Gregorius beat the throw from pitcher Nathan Eovaldi. "I don't think it's really quite settled in yet".

Devers singled twice, stole a base, scored two runs and knocked in another.

The originally scheduled pitching matchup was Luis Severino for the Yankees and Rick Porcello for the Sox. The win over Oakland in last week's wild-card game improved NY to 7-0 at home in the postseason since the start of the 2017 playoffs. Fortunately for the Yankees, it only counts as one game. So when the embattled lefty's name was called during player introductions before Game 3 of the series at Yankee Stadium on Monday, the Bronx crowd greeted Price with a warm ovation and chants of "M-V-P".
