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

More context to make things even more intriguing: Hernandez, a frequent target of dugout displeasure, will be behind the plate for Tuesday's Game 4.

Not much else to say after the Yankees absorbed the most-lopsided loss in their distinguished, 396-game postseason history, routed by the Boston Red Sox 16-1 Monday night in the AL Division Series.

Nathan Eovaldi and 2016 AL Cy Young Award victor Rick Porcello are expected to start Games 3 and 4, after picking up wins in the same roles against the Yankees.

Craig Kimbrel somehow, someway, got the save, almost squandering a three-run lead as part of a wild ninth inning.

Severino allowed six runs (all earned) on seven hits and two walks, while only retiring nine batters.

Trump Must Stop Fed From Fueling Inflation
Trump this week has blamed the market's big sell-off on the Fed's interest rate increases, saying "the Fed is out of control". The Republican president told the presenters: "They're [Fed bankers are] making a big mistake".


The Yankees didn't go quietly into the night, though.

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. He pitched five innings allowing just one run on four hits, and manager Alex Cora questionably removed Porcello from the game before the sixth inning even though he had only thrown 60-something pitches.

One key stat to know: Porcello has just two quality starts and one win in seven starts for the Detroit Tigers and the Red Sox in Yankee Stadium, which adds up to a 5.56 ERA and a 1.420 WHIP.

Following Benintendi's hit, the Red Sox extended the lead on a single to left by Steve Pearce off Chad Green.

The Red Sox got to C.C. Sabathia early, knocking him out of the game after a three-run third inning.

The Red Sox should be able to turn to Game 1 starter (and winner) Chris Sale, while the Yankees could pick between J.A. Happ on long rest or Masahiro Tanaka on regular rest.

"Definitely frustrating", Boone said. "At the end of the day we got the win and we're looking forward to Houston".

New York's lineup has 266 home runs this season, led by Giancarlo Stanton's mark of 38.

Cora and the Red Sox wouldn't sound off about Judge's musical taste - not that they could hear the famous Kander and Ebb song on Fenway's concourse through thick clubhouse walls after the 6-2 win in Game 2.

Making his first playoff start this year, Holt opened the fourth with a single off Severino and capped the 26-minute outburst with a triple to right field. Red Sox relievers have given up five in 11 innings.

"I was fine with the way CC was throwing the ball", Boone said.

The Red Sox made it 4-0 when Vazquez lined a 2-1 fastball into the right field seats off Zach Britton. "They were pretty loud for that Oakland game".
