Should Red Sox be anxious Angel Hernandez is umpiring Game 4?

Game 4 is Tuesday night in the Bronx, where the 108-win Red Sox can put away the wild-card Yankees for good and advance to the AL Championship Series against Houston.

"We saw it in Game 1, and we saw it throughout the season".

With Porcello pitching two-thirds of an inning, the Red Sox were forced to make a decision.

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. That was the last straw, so Boone came out to the mound - surely to bring in a talented and experienced reliever, right? He was just 5-for-31 (.161 average) with one extra-base hit (a double) and nine strikeouts against the Twins (in the ALDS) and the Red Sox. "I don't think it's quite settled in yet". Gleyber Torres finished 1-for-3 with a walk and a run. "He's rested, had a good week, and we're going with him". In the four games, Hernandez has been Sabathia's home plate umpire, the lefty has allowed just five runs over 31 innings.

With four more years and $127 million left on Price contract, there is plenty of time to debate whether his acute postseason woes are some sort of character flaw, such as a sheer inability to handle the pressure, or a random fluke of statistics and small sample sizes. Should the Red Sox win Game 3, they have a former Cy Young Award victor pitching basically in his hometown (Porcello went to Seton Hall Prep) to try to advance Boston to the ALCS; if they lose, though, then they have the same former Cy Young Award victor pitching to keep them alive instead of a wild card in Eovaldi.

"I felt like my fastball command and cutter were really effective tonight", Eovaldi said.

"It was a special moment for me", Eovaldi said. Mitch Moreland was 1-for-3 and scored a run.

Severino said. "I came out 20 minutes before the game like I usually do, I don't know why he was saying that".

Rothschild told reporters after the crushing defeat that Severino was "perfectly clear" with what time the game started. He entered the game as a pinch-runner for Ruben Sierra in the eighth inning, but was stranded when Alfonso Soriano hit into a force out with the bases loaded and two outs in a tie game. NY is 8-3 in its last 11 home games versus the Red Sox.

That's also the only run Eovaldi has conceded in four Red Sox appearances against NY this season, covering 23 innings. Steve Pearce played first and had an RBI single in the fourth. In the 17 starts that followed, Sevy pitched much more tentatively, going 9-6 with a 3.99 ERA.

In their long and storied histories as iconic franchises in Major League Baseball, the Yankees and Red Sox have squared off against each other 2,215 times. Roberts made his first appearance in the ALCS in the ninth inning of Game 4, as a pinch-runner for Kevin Millar, who drew a lead-off walk off Yankees closer Mariano Rivera. He said Monday he definitely wants to play in 2019 - even if it's not for the Yankees.
