Red Sox eliminate rival Yankees, advance to ALCS

David Price

For the Red Sox, it marks their first trip to the League Championship Series since 2013 - when they won their most recent World Series title - and 10th appearance since divisional play began in 1969. Boston did so with class, pure joy and a hint of pettiness.

NEW YORK-As one Boston Red Sox pitcher after another mowed down the New York Yankees on Tuesday night, the realization slowly settled across an increasingly silent Yankee Stadium: None of it mattered.

Many had that same question after Monday's game, which NY lost 16-1.

Last year, it was the Yankees who reached the AL Championship Series before their surprising run ended with a Game 7 loss to the Astros.

Apropos of nothing in this realm, perhaps, but credit that connection, in Boone's mind, for Yankee Stadium's average attendance being up more than 4,000 fans per game this year, and the turnstile total over the whole season ranking second in Major League Baseball.

"They got momentum on their side and never really slowed down", Robertson said. It was the second shortest home run in Yankee Stadium the season at 338 feet, according to The Athletic.

Asked whether Hernandez was the reason the Yankees lost, Sabathia responded: "Not at all".

As it was, the Yankees appeared to have little fight left after the interminable, deflating fourth inning, though a large part of that could be attributed to Red Sox starter Nathan Eovaldi, who carved up their vaunted lineup for seven dominating innings with a fastball that topped out at 101 miles per hour and an assortment of secondary pitches. The Red Sox produced their fourth seven-run inning in a postseason game and first since Game 1 of the 2007 World Series against the Colorado Rockies. Winning a meaningful game against the Yankees is rarely easy, even when for so many innings it seems to be trending that way.

"I didn't know until I finally spoke to Severino that Severino wasn't totally healthy, and they could not afford to stop him from pitching, " Martinez said on the show.

"It's a good song".

Boston's 16-1 blowout Monday marked the most lopsided defeat for a home team in post-season history, and shortstop Didi Gregorius called it "an embarrassing day". "Both games in Boston were good games, but we come here to win". Severino was removed with the bases loaded and nobody out, but relievers Lance Lynn and Chad Green quickly let the game get out of hand.

Yankees: The 38-year-old Sabathia (9-7, 3.65) will be on 11 days' rest when he makes his 23rd postseason start. "I scooted up in the box a little bit, and I was going to be swinging at anything and try to hook anything".

"I was fine with the way CC was throwing the ball", Boone said. They had a 3.38 ERA in the regular season.
