Boone's decision to pull Severino too late costs Yankees

BOSTON MA- OCTOBER 06 Manager Alex Cora of the Boston Red Sox takes the ball from starting pitcher David Price #24 and pulls Price from the game during the second inning with two runners on base in Game Two of the American League Division Series agains

The part-time utilityman put the finishing touch on a Red Sox blowout, becoming the first player to hit for the cycle in a postseason game as Boston routed the New York Yankees 16-1 on Monday to seize a 2-1 lead in their best-of-five AL Division Series. The Yankees need to win it to force a Game 5.

Don't expect to see a Red Sox decision for Game 4 until Tuesday, right before game time. It's barely halfway over and anyone who's watched a playoff game (any game, really) in Yankee Stadium knows that the team can rally quickly. But on Saturday night, the player feeling the crush of those walls, and hearing the vitriol of the crowd, wore the home-white trousers and home-red jersey of the Red Sox.

Added Rothschild: "I think that's a little bit blown out of proportion".

"Yeah, I think that's something that really started a year ago, as this fan base absolutely connected with this new young corps that has developed", Boone said.

"There's a reason he's in this series, and he has a job to do just like all of us", Cora said. But if you look at the first inning - and I know people have brought up, "Oh well, he got into trouble later on in the game" - first inning, he was all over the place.

"You get a little antsy when a position player is on the mound". David Price suffered the loss as he surrendered three earned runs on three hits with two strikeouts over 1 2/3 innings. It's not like when Jim Joyce could miss a call that cost Armando Galarraga a ideal game. "Like [Monday] we felt that that was the best lineup for us was to attack Severino, and tonight we feel this is the best lineup to attack CC Sabathia". Eovaldi may have been given the toughest test of any player on this Red Sox team: going into Yankee Stadium in front of a raucous crowd and stopping a high-powered NY team that was still riding high from its big win in Game 2, a game in which the Yankees took out starter David Price in just the second inning. Boone's career with the Yankees ended that winter, when he tore his ACL in a pickup basketball game, violating the terms of his contract, leading to his release in late February. Fellow right Nathan Eovaldi set a rather high bar for Red Sox pitching in Game 3, going seven innings and allowing just one run. He handed the ball to Manager Alex Cora, skulked off to a chorus of boos, stepped carefully across the white chalk lines to avoid bad luck - too late for that, perhaps - and made a beeline straight to the sanctuary of the Red Sox's clubhouse.

Bumped up a day in front of Porcello, he delivered a gem in his first postseason appearance.

"I think it's going to be wonderful". He came up with two outs and runners on first and second; on the 10th pitch of his at-bat against Esteban Loaiza, Ortiz smacked a single into center, scoring Damon with the winning run.

"It just kind of shows you what kind of team we have and that we could explode at any minute", Betts said.

After a game in which he had three calls at first base overturned via replay and drew plenty of criticism for his umpiring, Hernandez could be looking to act like the sheriff out there.

On the other side of the equation, Romine had even less expectation of pitching in Game 3 than Holt did of starting it. "Mitch is available, but he's not 100 percent", Cora said.

In the seven games this season, the Astros averaged 2.9 runs per game and the Yankees averaged 3.9 runs per game. "For me to pitch the way I did and for us to score as many runs as we did, it was a big game for us tonight".

"No choice but to flush", manager Aaron Boone said.

A Cy Young candidate during the first half of the 2018 season, Severino was 10-2 with a 2.74 ERA in 15 starts prior to the Midsummer Classic.
