Bring on Boston: Yanks rout A's 7-2 in wild-card game

09 October 2018

"We want Boston!" the fans roared in unison.

"It's a good song". And yet for all the billions in salary they've spent and all the stars they've grown and imported, the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox have not faced one another in the playoffs since Boston overcame a three-games-to-none deficit almost a decade and a half ago. "We like to hear that song sometimes when we win a big game".

The 29-year-old Perth native, one of only 33 Australians to play in the majors, opened the game for the Oakland A's against the New York Yankees in their must-win American League wildcard clash.

Severino was 10-2 with a 2.74 ERA and.217 opponents' batting average at home, just 9-6 with a 3.99 ERA and.257 opponents' batting average on the road.

The era of the postseason "opener" arrived at Yankee Stadium on Wednesday night, and for those who follow the evolution of pitching strategy, it was a sight to behold.

"The fans, they're out there on the field with you", Judge said. "They pitched really well", he added.

Barbara Bush's twin sister, Jenna Bush Hager , shared details of the weekend nuptials on "Today" show Monday morning. She added in another post, "My heart exploded last night as I watched my dearest sissy get married in Maine.

Only Zach Britton was touched up for a run when Oakland's Khris Davis smacked a two-run home run off him in the eighth as their bullpen rode to victory midweek.

"Early in the game they're going to be loud".

The New York Yankees will play the Boston Red Sox in the ALDS.

In a situation as crucial as a one-game playoff like the upcoming AL wild-card game at Yankee Stadium, there are certain players the A's just have to expect to be able to count on.

Yankees-Red Sox is back. Not only should Wendelken be relied on to pitch in this game, he might be asked to go more than one inning, as he has shown the ability to do so during the past month. With the final score of 7-2 the Bronx Bombers move on to face the Boston Red Sox.

"I'm all healed up right now", Betances said.

Hurricane Michael takes aim at Florida Panhandle, prompting evacuations
In Florida, state offices, schools and universities were set to close Tuesday through the end of the week in panhandle counties. The forecast indicates Michael may be a Category 3 hurricane - with winds from 111 to 129 miles per hour - when it strikes.

"All it means is I'm relieving in the first inning", Hendriks said.

For all the focus on big boppers, J.D. Martinez, Mookie Betts and Andrew Benintendi for Boston, and Judge, Giancarlo Stanton and Gary Sanchez for NY, relievers have reigned in an era when starting pitchers often are shown the exit before they have a chance to stumble too much.

The previous three times a pitcher with no wins in the regular season - never mind one who was cut from the 40-man roster in June - had started a postseason game, they had missed most of the season either because of injury or to serve in a war.

From the first inning on, there was little doubt. The Red Sox went on to win their first World Series since 1918, but Boone's drive off Tim Wakefield has not been forgotten or forgiven.

Yankees fans fretted about an all-or-nothing knockout match, thinking back to a year ago when Severino fell behind Minnesota 3-0 just 10 pitches in.

Boston player-manager Joe Cronin and NY outfielder Jake Powell fought on the field and beneath the Yankee Stadium stands in 1938, and Jimmy Piersall of the Red Sox and Billy Martin of the Yankees brawled beneath Fenway Park's stands in 1952.
