'Embarrassing': Yanks routed by Red Sox 16-1, trail ALDS 2-1

The game ended on Torres' slow roller to third, where a charging Eduardo Nunez fielded and made a strong throw to nip the hustling rookie by half a step. Steve Pearce played first and had an RBI single in the fourth. The Yankees challenged, but it wasn't that close. The Red Sox are a +168 underdog, while the total is set at 8.5 runs. Yet manager Alex Cora didn't want to risk the series reaching that point.

Holt entered the ninth inning needing just a home run to complete the historic feat. To make matters worse, the Red Sox clinched while in NY.

Severino started New York's postseason with four shutout innings in the AL wild-card win over Oakland last Wednesday.

Red Sox starter Rick Porcello, meanwhile, was far more effective, allowing just one run on four hits in five innings, striking out one and walking zero, while throwing 48 of 65 pitches for strikes.

That missed Kimbrel by a few feet and could have seriously injured him. I'd expect him to be strong again tonight before turning it over to one of the best pullpens in baseball.

"We feel like CC physically is in a good place right now coming off a really good start at the end of the year", said Aaron Boone yesterday.

The possible deciding Game 4 will be played at Yankee Stadium on Tuesday.

"I think back to the replay of the Luke Voit play at first base, that Angel Hernandez actually got right".

"So I was saying before that, on a 10-1 score, Benintendi took off to run and stole a base".

It wasn't pretty, but the Red Sox bullpen twice held on against the most home-run happy team to grace the regular season in major league history.

The Red Sox now go on to face the defending-champion Astros in the ALCS, which starts Saturday night in Boston.

A lanky, bearded 29-year-old right-hander, Porcello lived a traffic jam from Yankee Stadium in Chester, New Jersey, and is a 2007 graduate of Seton Hall Prep in West Orange - the baseball field there was renamed in his honor last year after he helped fund artificial turf and pro-style dugouts. Brett Gardner was back in center, but Boone said he wouldn't hesitate to use Hicks in any role off the bench.

CC Sabathia plans to pitch next season, even if it means leaving the New York Yankees to find a contract.

"He was awful behind the plate today, he's bad at first base", Sabathia continued.

Hernandez's troubles started in the second inning, when Didi Gregorius bunted with Giancarlo Stanton on first and the umpire ruled Gregorius beat the throw from pitcher Nathan Eovaldi. He hit a home run off a 79 miles per hour Romine slider, according to MLB.com Statcast. The call was overturned, giving NY a runner on second with one out. There was occasional barking about his decisions, and Benintendi argued after he was called out on a breaking ball with the bases loaded for the final out of the eighth, a pitch that may have been outside.
