Who Wins In Red Sox-Yankees? Boston Businesses

Left-hander Chris Sale pitched effectively into the sixth inning, J.D. Martinez hit a three-run home run in the first and the Boston Red Sox opened the American League Division Series by holding on for a 5-4 victory over the visiting New York Yankees Friday night.

AROUND THE BASES Josh Donaldson went 0-for-4 against the Astros in Friday's opener of the other ALDS series and prior to the game the Blue Jays finally announced the player the named later in the August 31 deal.

It has been 14 years since the Red Sox and Yankees last met in the post-season - in 2004, the Red Sox rallied from three games down for a stunning series triumph. He would be on the usual four days' rest. Rick Porcello will follow, with former Yankees righty Nathan Eovaldi now scheduled as Boston's Game 4 starter. You can Google it now, tomorrow and 100 years from now and it's going to be there.

Tanaka allowed just three hits, including Xander Bogaerts' solo homer, before leaving after five innings with a 3-1 lead. I mean, we know we have to play our best if we're going to have a chance to beat them.

For the Red Sox, the biggest X-factor in Game 2 could be their bullpen. He has a career 2.98 ERA against Boston.

After Sale, you've got David Price in Game 2. In a game against the Yankees in Fenway in August, he allowed two runs in six innings while getting a non-decision in a 5-4 Boston win.

When good pitching is making it even harder to score than during the regular season, the need to get the ball out of the park goes up.

He is 1-1 with a 3.72 ERA in 10 postseason games - three starts - and was pitching in relief when he was on the champion Philadelphia Phillies in 2008. Judge had three hits, including the only extra-base hit, and Luke Voit had two singles for NY, which went 1 for 7 with runners in scoring position.

The Red Sox have some ugly numbers against Happ - except for Steve Pearce and Brandon Phillips, the latter not likely active for the series.

Andrew Benintendi and Jackie Bradley Jr. were the only two left-handed hitters to draw a start against Happ, and with good reason. Chacin (1-0) worked the first five innings, limiting the Rockies to three hits. To hear what he had to say, check out the "Red Sox Extra Innings" video above, presented by WB Mason.

Alex Bregman slugged his fifth career postseason home run, and right-hander Justin Verlander delivered a strong start for Houston, which claimed Game 1 of its ALDS against visiting Cleveland. In fact, Boston relievers had a cumulative 4.84 ERA in 126 1/3 innings.

"Just a bad outing today", Cora said. "They were hit around. We're going to the same guys, and it seemed like some of them hit the wall".

Fans - and their wallets - are more likely to visit from NY than California; the Oakland Athletics were the Sox's other possible foe.

Cora confirmed former Yankee Nathan Eovaldi will start a Game 4 if necessary, in NY and likely against CC Sabathia.
