Angel Hernandez now in a bigger spot after Game 3 debacle

Angel Hernandez now in a bigger spot after Game 3 debacle

First the Red Sox needed to eliminate the Yankees, and they dispatched their longtime rivals with a 4-3 victory that seemed in control until closer Craig Kimbrel couldn't find the plate in the ninth.

While it's true that Severino was far-less effective post-All-Star break - and he and Martinez do have a relationship, as the two worked out together during the winter of 2016 in their native Dominican Republic, the 24-year-old Severino made it clear he never said anything about an injury to the former Red Sox star. Holt smacked the first offering he saw from Austin Romine for a line drive two-run home run to right field. After all, NY hit by far the most home runs of any team in the regular season, and it scored five or more runs in an inning 16 times (per Baseball Reference). Boston ended up winning 10-3, paving the way to the Red Sox's first World Series title since 1918. "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". So it shouldn't shock anyone that he might be miffed by some of the things the Red Sox did in Game 3.

The Yankees must win both Game 4 and Game 5 in order to advance to meet the Astros in the ALCS. "It doesn't matter how many times he sues Major League Baseball". Ortiz hit.545 in the ALDS sweep of the Angels, including a walk-off homer in Game 3.

■ Fellow outfielder Marwin Gonzalez put together a solid season, blasting 16 homers to go along with 68 RBIs and a team-high 126 strikeouts. According to that code, acts that could show up or embarrass the opposition - such as flipping the bat after a home run or, in this case, trying to pad a lead when the outcome appears no longer in question - are frowned upon.

Every starter had at least one hit for the Red Sox, who piled up 18 in all.

Manchester City's tactics showed Pep Guardiola's respect for Liverpool - Virgil van Dijk
Before the season started I thought United and Liverpool would both be close to City this time. Six of those matches were against opponents ranked in the top 15 in the world.

According to the TBS telecast, Severino did not begin warming up until 7:32 p.m. ET, only 10 minutes before he threw his first pitch.

Benintendi, already a Yankees nemesis, was on base four times and scored twice.

So I definitely think there's something to it.

Luis Severino looked out of sorts from the start.

Palestinian shoots 3 Israelis in West Bank attack
Gaza's Hamas rulers and other militant groups praised Sunday's attack, but none claimed responsibility for it. The suspected assailant worked at the park, which employs both Israelis and Palestinians.


Much like the Wild Card Game and Sabathia's starts last postseason, chances are the bullpen will get more outs than the starting pitcher tonight. Steve Pearce later scored Benintendi on an RBI single to give Boston an 8-0 advantage. Hernandez had four plays reviewed in the first four innings, with his lone successful call coming via an upheld call on a Luke Voit single in the bottom of the fourth.

Most notably, Darling received criticism for being insensitive in analyzing the outing Saturday by Masahiro Tanaka, a Japanese pitcher who started for the Yankees in Game 2.

"He had plenty of warm-up", manager Aaron Boone said. Brett Gardner was back in center, but Boone said he wouldn't hesitate to use Hicks in any role off the bench.

Dent previously threw out the ceremonial first pitch ahead of Game 7 of the AL Championship Series in 2004.

Apropos of nothing in this realm, perhaps, but credit that connection, in Boone's mind, for Yankee Stadium's average attendance being up more than 4,000 fans per game this year, and the turnstile total over the whole season ranking second in Major League Baseball.
