Some Red Sox players were technically close as Judge shared his tune, because of the clubhouse’s location along the concourse.
“It’s a good song”.
This time a year ago, Aaron Boone and Alex Cora were experiencing the crowd at Yankee Stadium from very different positions.
Nathan Eovaldi will get the start in Game 3 for the Boston Red Sox as their American League Division Series shifts to NY on Monday. Luis Severino, coming off four scoreless innings in the wild-card game against Oakland, starts for NY and former Yankees pitcher Nathan Eovaldi pitches for the Red Sox.
NY was 6-3 at home vs. Boston this year.
“Maybe my wife cooks better food here”, he said.
The Yankees smacked the most homers of any club in major league history this season with 267 and have sustained their superb slugging into the playoffs. At Fenway Park, however, he is 0-2 with a 7.59 ERA.
“Obviously we need outs”, Cora said, via Browne.
“Seven innings, two hits, one run”.
Now that this humiliating effort is tucked into his backpack, Price certainly can’t start another game in this series as Sale will no doubt get the ball if there is a Game 5. The Yankees’ Masahiro Tanaka, on the other hand, mowed down the Red Sox’ lineup inning after inning.
Here’s an excerpt of what Roberts had to say about the game, which evened the series at 1-1 heading back to Yankee Stadium.
Meanwhile, the Red Sox got a run back against Tanaka on Xander Bogaerts’s homer to straightaway center field in the fourth, and a second run against reliever Dellin Betances in the seventh.
It was the longest home run of the postseason – for about five innings.
The Indians are trying to end a 70-year World Series title drought, having last captured the championship in 1948.
“I really feel strongly that 90, 95 percent of the stuff we’re seeing was really impactful behind the plate”, Boone said. I guess that’s the one that was going.
For all the focus on big boppers, J.D. If the Boston bullpen was rotten in victory Friday night, it was stellar – save for one pitch from Rodriguez to Sanchez in the seventh – in defeat on Saturday.
Sanchez, whose batting average didn’t top.200 after June 8, also had a solo shot in the second inning to give NY a 2-0 lead. Still, without the certainty the Red Sox thought they might have him Steven Wright and/or Eduardo Rodriguez we might see some dice-rolling.
Boston Red Sox starter David Price couldn’t have gotten off to a worst start than he did in the first two innings in Game 2 of the American League Division Series. Amazingly, Price now owns an 0-9 record and a 6.03 ERA over 10 postseason starts, though his ongoing struggles on the game’s biggest stage won’t lead the Red Sox to pull him from their rotation. He pitched for the Yankees in 2015 and ’16 before injuring his elbow, which required Tommy John surgery for the second time.
His goal is to keep bats and fans quiet.
But walks are in part how the Red Sox have attacked Severino this year, by letting him get wild with his high-90s fastball, changeup and slider, laying off the junk and taking what he gives them for singles and doubles.
“That’s probably just something they do when they win”, the manager said.
Of all the players in this series, Price may have had the most riding on his performance.
“It’s been a while since Boston played Yankees in the playoffs”. “They were pretty loud for that Oakland game”.
“The reason why [I called timeout] was because my hands were a little numb from a foul ball”, Sanchez said to ESPN’s Buster Olney on the field after the game.
