Home for good: Yankees eliminated by rival Red Sox in ALDS

Home for good: Yankees eliminated by rival Red Sox in ALDS

Yankees: CF Aaron Hicks remained out of the lineup after missing Game 2 with tightness in his right hamstring, which forced him from the series opener Friday. And everything else went Boston's way all night, so why not this? Now back at home, will NY win again tonight to grab the lead in the series and pull within one win of taking the series? Boston acquired him from Tampa Bay in July and the hard-throwing righty compiled a 1.93 ERA in four starts against NY this season - three with the Red Sox.

Before the last two games, NY was 7-0 at home over the past two postseasons.

Didi Gregorius singled and Giancarlo Stanton struck out, dropping to 4 for 18 (.222) with no RBIs in the series.

Severino's counterpart, Nathan Eovaldi, shut down the Yankees, allowing just one run and five hits in seven innings as the Red Sox took a 2-1 series lead.

With the home crowd behind him once again, Severino needs to control the strike zone early, and perhaps get a few more calls on the outside of the plate, than he did against Oakland - to keep his pitch count down. "And Aaron, he's one of our resident deejays, so he's got a pretty extensive playlist", Boone said later that day at Yankee Stadium, a smirk filling his face. By the time the fourth inning was over, three of his calls were overturned and a fourth call was upheld on review.

With the stakes at their highest, however, the Yankees never left the yard in two home games versus Boston.

"We played a really hard season, we managed to win 100 games and then we get to this point and we just can't finish off a series against the Red Sox".

"I mean, we always play well here at home", Game 3 starter Luis Severino said.




Last night, thanks to an all-around disaster, the Yankees were pushed to the brink of elimination by the Red Sox.

Boston added championships in 2007 and 2013, becoming one of baseball's elite clubs, but the Red Sox had been knocked out in the Division Series the previous two years and had not reached the sport's final four since their last title. This could be a step in the right direction for the part of Boston's team Red Sox fans were most nervous about coming into the series.

Park. He is 0-3 with a 5.33 ERA in 12 career postseason outings, including four starts.

Boone and the Yankees should have a very short leash with Sabathia tonight.

The next night, after 1978 Boston nemesis Bucky Dent threw out the first pitch, Boone stayed with Sabathia even when the 38-year-old lefty, pitching on 11 days' rest, ran into trouble in the third.

Holt made the score 16-1 with his two-run shot in the ninth inning, while completing the cycle.

Holt raked his triple in the next exchange, scoring Xander Bogaerts and Pearce.

Kinsler doubled over a leaping Gardner for a 2-0 lead and Nunez singled on the next pitch for his first RBI of the postseason. He's a good player, one of the best in the game.
