Red Sox eliminate Yankees in Game 4 in photo finish

Grant SmithOct 10, 2018

NY set a major league record this year for most home runs in a season, but didn't go deep in the two games at Yankee Stadium.

On Tuesday night, the Red Sox took care of business with their second straight win in NY, claiming the series in four games and setting up a meeting in the American League Championship Series with the Astros, who are flying high and ready to defend their World Series title after sweeping the Indians.

Twitter absolutely went off on Hernandez during and after the game and he was actually trending in the USA after.

Xander Bogaerts finished 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Game 2 to help lead the Red Sox offense.

J.D. Martinez and the 108-win Red Sox reached the AL Championship Series for the first time since 2013. As it stands now, the Red Sox have a slight edge, picking up 52% of bets.

The Yankees are denying that Luis Severino was confused about the start time for Monday's ALDS Game 3, which left him with little time to warm up. The Red Sox plated two more runs in the third frame before a huge fourth inning.

"It was an embarrassing day today", New York Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius said. I didn't expect anybody to say that he was late warming up. These guys go through routines that usually take 25, 30 minutes, where they're running in the outfield and then they go through a long-toss routine and then they get on the mound and they kind of work their way into it and then get to the dugout, have plenty of time to relax and figure it out and go out there and you're ready to go.

The Yankees are going home.

A New Jersey native who grew up a Mets fan, Porcello held the Yankees to one run over five innings for his first post-season win. Gleyber Torres hit a slow roller that third baseman Eduardo Nunez charged and threw in a hurry. 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.

Severino has looked sharp again over his last few starts including in the AL Wild Card Game.

In the seventh, still leading 10-1, Benintendi swung at a 3-and-0 pitch from Yankees reliever Jonathan Holder.

The Red Sox bullpen appeared to have little trust from their fanbase entering this series, but the relief crew threw 17 innings and allowed just seven runs. Steve Pearce later scored Benintendi on an RBI single to give Boston an 8-0 advantage. He was pulled after four straight batters reached in the fourth.

Most notably, Darling received criticism for being insensitive in analyzing the outing Saturday by Masahiro Tanaka, a Japanese pitcher who started for the Yankees in Game 2. In Game 7, Ortiz crushed a two-run homer in the first inning off Kevin Brown, giving the Red Sox a 2-0 lead in a game they would never trail and eventually won 10-3.

It wasn't a turn of phrase that irked many viewers Monday so much as an apparent return to an informal code that Major League Baseball itself is eager to move past. For the second straight night, Yankees rookie manager Aaron Boone hesitated to remove his starting pitcher early.
