Red Sox strike first in ALDS Game 4, take 3-0 lead

Despite the minor blip in the radar, Severino will look to build off his solid, yet shortened Wild Card start - when he tossed four innings of shutout ball while striking out seven and allowing two hits. And the Red Sox plated 12 runs off them in 17 innings this series. With a win, Boston will earn a trip to the American League Champion Series and a date with the reigning World Series champion Houston Astros.

Better late: Aaron Boone comes out to take the ball from Yankees starter Luis Severino in the fourth inning of Game 4 of the American League Division Series. That bridged the gap to Craig Kimbrel in the ninth.

Mookie Betts, in fact, hit a 405-foot flyout to the center-field warning track to begin the game.

Cora also said he thinks he and the Red Sox have identified an issue with Price in the last couple outings, dating back to his final regular-season start against the Orioles on September 30.

Boston second baseman Brock Holt celebrates hitting a two-run home run with second baseman Ian Kinsler in the ninth inning in game three of the 2018 ALDS playoff baseball series at Yankee Stadium.

After two scoreless frames, the Red Sox offense jumped on starter CC Sabathia in the third inning, utilizing a hit batter, two singles, and a double to plate three runs.

We posted the first missed call above. After splitting two games at Fenway Park, they quieted the Yankees' boisterous crowd - and their risky bats.

At inning's end, Sabathia, a free agent now at age 38, walked slowly off the mound, and if anyone in the stadium took note of the fact it might have been his last appearance here in the pinstripes, they didn't show it.

Still, nothing Boone did or didn't do with his pitching staff would matter if the Yankees couldn't score. A great bullpen can't carry home a victory if it is never handed a lead to protect. Given the Red Sox bullpen's well-earned reputation for occasionally dousing gasoline on a ballgame and waving around a match in the middle innings, I thought Alex Cora should have tried to squeeze another inning out of him, though he clearly missed his spots a few times in the fifth. He also put Nunez back at third base after going with Rafael Devers in Game 3 (he had a pair of hits).

NY faced a win-or-go-home predicament in that 1978 clash between these storied rivals, and did so again Tuesday night.

Zach Britton gave up an opposite-field homer to No. 9 batter Christian Vazquez in the fourth, and NY never fully recovered. They got shutout innings from Matt Barnes, Ryan Brazier, and ace-turned-temporary-setup-man Chris Sale, which was a surprise.

At the final out Tuesday night, at least once the replay review confirmed it, the Red Sox converged near the mound and hugged each other.
