New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia critical of umpire Angel Hernandez

Home-field advantage Yankees and their electric fanbase have Red Sox right where they want them

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

"He wasn't shy about it", Benintendi said.

Finally, as Red Sox third baseman Rafael Devers was driving in their second run of the inning to make it 3-0, Boone got a pair of relievers heated up. We have a bad night, we don't get to play.

He ended up leading the Yankees with 38 homers and 100 RBIs, but his all-or-nothing approach at the plate showed that last season's NL MVP isn't the complete hitter that Judge is. "It doesn't happen too often, but when you get to that point with your closer, that's who you're trying to get to and you look at it today and most of the series, they did a really fine job".

Brasier, Barnes and Workman struggled in Game 1 while Rodriguez gave up a three-run bomb in Game 2.

The Sox out-classed the Yankees with better performances in every part of the game over this four-game set.

And with the opportunity to deliver in the postseason, Stanton came up small. You know how it worked: Just how Cora wanted it to when he wrote out his lineup card.

According to the TBS telecast, Severino did not begin warming up until 7:32 p.m. ET, only 10 minutes before he threw his first pitch.

Still, nothing Boone did or didn't do with his pitching staff would matter if the Yankees couldn't score.

With one out, the Yankees put runners at second and third on a double by Gary Sanchez and an infield single by Torres before scoring their first run on a sacrifice fly by Brett Gardner.

The aggressive manner in which Boone managed that victory was near-perfect, and instructive: driven by the do-or-die stakes, he pulled Severino at the first sign of trouble in the fifth, and used only his most reliable and dominant relievers in guiding home a 7-2 win. Since losing Game 2 of the 2004 ALCS, the Red Sox have outscored the Yankees 34-9 in postseason games in the Bronx.

"This is definitely a different crowd (than 2009-12's postseason runs)", said CC Sabathia.

Those who pitched in relief for the Red Sox in the DS allowed seven runs in 17 innings (a 3.71 ERA) with 17 strikeouts and 11 walks. The big lefty was ejected from his last regular-season outing for hitting Tampa Bay catcher Jesus Sucre with a pitch during a testy game between division rivals on September 27.

Angel Hernandez is a horrific umpire and it's insane Major League Baseball keeps running him out for playoff games.

The expiration date: It's a little hard to make it out all these years later, but there's a good chance it says October 8, 2018.
