Red Sox rout Yankees to take 2-1 series lead

Red Sox rout Yankees to take 2-1 series lead

Should the Red Sox win Game 3, they have a former Cy Young Award victor pitching basically in his hometown (Porcello went to Seton Hall Prep) to try to advance Boston to the ALCS; if they lose, though, then they have the same former Cy Young Award victor pitching to keep them alive instead of a wild card in Eovaldi. That's the only way you can get back into the count because they're disciplined and they don't chase a lot. "I don't think it's really quite settled in yet". On the downside, they're now one loss from elimination. "He was able to sit down for three or four minutes and go out". Handed a big early lead, Nathan Eovaldi shut down his former team during New York's most lopsided defeat in 396 postseason games. He is 0-3 with a 5.33 ERA in 12 career postseason outings, including four starts.

On the same token, Porcello is "higher up the depth chart", or so it seems, in the Red Sox rotation, so moving him is a bit of a hedge. Plus, a win tonight will clinch the best-of-five series and send the Sox into the ALCS against Houston. "Obviously, you don't go into the game expecting to make history or do anything like that, let alone score 16 runs". He also pitched seven scoreless (on two hits) against them in April in Boston.

It's a positive and encouraging trend. The over is 6-1-1 in the last eight Boston games overall.

Actually, no. They're not that at all.




"At one point of the playoffs, he was going to start, regardless if it was Game 3 or 4". Severino retired just nine batters, Lynn was hooked after facing just four men in relief and Nathan Eovaldi was left to cut through the risky NY lineup with a comfortable cushion.

Porcello sees value in everything he's learned from all of his postseason stints, as both starter and reliever.

Though Severino acknowledged he struggled with the command of his fastball, he, too, said he completed his normal pregame routine and knew what time the game started. If the Red Sox win game three do you start Chris Sale to avoid a game five, or do you start Rick Porcello to save Sale for a possible game five? "You get it, and you just hope he makes the right calls". "If you have the lead that night, you've got to do whatever you can to win, and if that means starting pitchers pitching, that's what it means".

"I think they both can strike, can strike big", said Hyers, who was with the Dodgers as they went to Game 7 of the World Series past year. "So I'm very confident that, regardless of what happens today, we have the right guy on the mound tomorrow".
