Red Sox strike first in ALDS Game 4, take 3-0 lead

14 October 2018

The Red Sox eliminated the Yankees in thrilling fashion Tuesday night in the Bronx and then had some fun in the locker room - with a familiar song blaring over the speakers.

The Michelangelo of blown calls managed to whiff on three plays in first four innings of Monday night's American League Division Series game between the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox.

J.D. Martinez and the 108-win Red Sox reached the AL Championship Series for the first time since 2013.

NY mounted a last-ditch rally against wild closer Craig Kimbrel, scoring twice in the ninth inning. Kimbrel didn't seem to have his control Tuesday, loading the bases and then forcing in a run to make it 4-2 when he hit Neil Walker with a pitch. The latest was a five-out cameo in Game 2 against the Yankees in which he gave up homers to Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez. Houston, which won 103 games this year for the second best record in baseball behind Boston, appears to be unbeatable after sweeping the Cleveland Indians in their ALDS series.

But Cora expressed confidence in Price afterward, claiming that Astros ace Justin Verlander and Red Sox Hall of Famer Pedro Martinez also struggled in the playoffs early in their careers.

One night after Boone, the Yankees manager, had his bullpen moves (and non-moves) scrutinized mercilessly in the NY papers - the consensus being that he was too late in pulling his starter and too passive in deploying his better arms in what would become an ugly 16-1 loss - the Yankees, this time facing elimination, again fell behind in the early innings with the bullpen at rest. Holt hit for the cycle in the Red Sox's 16-1 win. "I expected to come back here and win two in a row", Gardner said.

He was supposed to be the Game 3 starter, but given Cora went to Porcello in Game 1 for two outs, he figured Nathan Eovaldi could do the job. But I know I'm more than capable of winning games as a starter in October.

"Yeah, I think that's something that really started past year, as this fan base absolutely connected with this new young corps that has developed", Boone said.

United Nations 'concern' over Khashoggi disapperance relayed to Saudis
The tension between the two countries is nothing new - their mutual dislike goes back to the days of the Ottoman Empire. Spokesman Ibrahim Kalin says the proposal to set up the committee was made by Saudi Arabia.

New York, which scored its lone run on a groundout by Didi Gregorius in the fourth, saw its seven-game home postseason streak snapped.

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. By the time the inning was over, the Red Sox had a 3-0 lead they never relinquished.

The Red Sox began celebrating, but the Yankees challenged the initial call. Boone said he wouldn't hesitate to use Hicks in any role off the bench.

The Red Sox made it 4-0 when Vazquez lined a 2-1 fastball into the right field seats off Zach Britton.
