The Yankees may have the younger team with most of their super stars under team control for years to come while the Red Sox have a narrow to window to win it all. Holt smacked the first offering he saw from Austin Romine for a line drive two-run home run to right field. I didn't expect anybody to say that he was late warming up. He entered the game as a pinch-runner for Ruben Sierra in the eighth inning, but was stranded when Alfonso Soriano hit into a force out with the bases loaded and two outs in a tie game. 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. These guys go through routines that usually take 25, 30 minutes, where they're running in the outfield and then they go through a long-toss routine and then they get on the mound and they kind of work their way into it and then get to the dugout, have plenty of time to relax and figure it out and go out there and you're ready to go.
This year belongs to the Red Sox.
The Yankees insisted after the game Monday night, there was nothing unusual about Severino's preparation.
Boston didn't win 108 games to lose in the Division Series, and it definitely didn't win 108 and the American League East to lose to the Yankees. - Andrew Benintendi " I was trying to hit a home run". "They push us throughout the whole season, and they push it even more here in the postseason, I think". First pitch from Yankee Stadium is slated for 8:07 p.m.
Benintendi, already a Yankees nemesis, was on base four times and scored twice.
Luis Severino looked out of sorts from the start.
NY trailed 10-0 in the fourth when Luke Voit hit a comebacker off the bare hand of Eovaldi, and Hernandez signalled Voit beat the throw from second baseman Brock Holt for an infield hit.
In the seventh, still leading 10-1, Benintendi swung at a 3-and-0 pitch from Yankees reliever Jonathan Holder.
Boston first baseman Steve Pearce stretched for an outstanding catch that nipped Torres.
There were four replay challenges in the first four innings - all involving calls by first base umpire Angel Hernandez.
"We feel like CC physically is in a good place right now coming off a really good start at the end of the year", said Aaron Boone yesterday. Referencing the Red Sox getting to Yankees starter Masahiro Tanaka in Game 2, he used an old idiom that happens to include a racial slur. The Yankees traded for Boone at the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline, sending Branden Claussen and Charlie Manning and a bit of cash to Cincinnati, and Boone was good not great in the season's final two months.
Yankees manager Aaron Boone only has two games of Stadium postseason experience to draw on himself - this year's Wild Card Game as the manager, and last year's as a broadcaster - but he knows those two games against the Twins and Athletics will be nothing compared to the next two nights.
It wasn't a turn of phrase that irked many viewers Monday so much as an apparent return to an informal code that Major League Baseball itself is eager to move past.
