How Sharps Are Betting Red Sox-Yankees Game 4

Now, they are each at the helm of opposite posts, and the memories of those 2017 postseason crowds in NY are on each of their minds today as they prepare their teams to face off for Game 3 of the ALDS on Monday night.

Yankees: CF Aaron Hicks remained out of the lineup after missing Game 2 with tightness in his right hamstring, which forced him from the series opener Friday. "It's the first inning where he's lost a little of his control". I hope so. Bottom line, as long as he gets his cutter in on righties, he'll be okay. "While unintentional, I apologize for my choice of words".

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.

Umpire Angel Hernandez had as rough of a night as the Yankees' pitching staff on Monday night, having three calls at first base overturned by replay review.

"Well, I guess from the school of not taking anything for granted. You don't usually see that", the 58-year-old analyst said on TBS's telecast (via Awful Announcing). In the postseason, maybe.

Benintendi then went too far, in Darling's eyes, in the seventh inning, with the Red Sox still leading 10-1.

Benintendi has earned a reputation as a Yankee-killer.

"Honestly, you get the feedback", Cora said.

"There used to be a book. There's no book anymore", he continued.


"But I would find that offensive, personally".

For the first time since 2013, the Boston Red Sox are heading to the American League Championship Series.

There was also the question of what exactly he was doing.

The 25-year veteran earned a fair share of criticism for his poor performance on Twitter, but perhaps the harshest comments came from three-time Cy Young victor Pedro Martinez during the postgame broadcast on TBS.

Former Yankee Nathan Eovaldi (1-0) shined in his first career postseason start, allowing one run on five hits in seven innings. It certainly wouldn't be smart for Yankees starter C.C. Sabathia to plunk a guy on goal and risk getting ejected. There is no 'rubbing it in.'.

After beating the Yankees 4-3 on Tuesday night in NY, the Red Sox eliminated their rivals and moved on to the next round of the postseason.

In the seven games this season, the Astros averaged 2.9 runs per game and the Yankees averaged 3.9 runs per game.

The Red Sox now have some starting pitchers who can handle the pressure and use hostile atmospheres to fuel their adrenaline. and some who can't. The Red Sox plated two more runs in the third frame before a huge fourth inning. "Obviously, you don't go into the game expecting to make history or do anything like that, let alone score 16 runs".

"This one I'll remember for a long time", said Holt, unaware of his achievement until told by a television reporter right after the final out. Closer Craig Kimbrel almost blew the game, however, as he walked two batters and Gary Sanchez just missed a walk-off grand slam when his towering fly ball to left field was caught on the warning track.
