‘Embarrassing’: Yanks routed by Red Sox 16-1, trail ALDS 2-1

‘Embarrassing’: Yanks routed by Red Sox 16-1, trail ALDS 2-1

He also pointing out that, by maintaining an aggressive approach on offense, the Red Sox could have forced the Yankees to dig deeper into their bullpen, potentially providing Boston with a useful edge in Tuesday's Game 4.

But his ineptitude was on full display in Game 3 of the Yankees-Red Sox ALDS Monday night.

The team was not subtle about its intentions. Matt Barnes and Ryan Brasier followed with a flawless inning each to protect a 4-1 lead, and Red Sox ace Chris Sale followed with a 1-2-3 eighth in a rare relief appearance. That has to hurt. "It's wonderful that he's getting a job to umpire in these playoff games". As it stands now, the Red Sox have a slight edge, picking up 52% of bets.

If anyone on the Red Sox gets hit (or even brushed back) in Game 4, it would be Andrew Benintendi or Brock Holt.

"Well, it got a little exciting there at the end", Kimbrel admitted.

Holt finished 4-for-6 in the Red Sox's 16-1 blowout in the Game 3 of the American League Division Series against the rival New York Yankees.

Before the big inning, Boston took a 3-0 lead on Vazquez's infield hit off Severino's glove in the second before getting two runs in the third on a sacrifice fly by Martinez and an RBI groundout by Rafael Devers.

When asked if there should be a mechanism for umpires to be removed from a series if they have a game as poor as Hernandez had Monday, Sabathia said: "Yeah, that's what we do". According to that code, acts that could show up or embarrass the opposition - such as flipping the bat after a home run or, in this case, trying to pad a lead when the outcome appears no longer in question - are frowned upon.

TBS reported Severino began warming up only 10 minutes before the game, and he certainly looked out of sorts from the start in misty weather. "I rounded the bases, and seeing everybody going nuts in the dugout was a pretty cool moment for me".

'I think it was a sound decision'.

Severino's velocity appeared to be down a tick in the opening innings, and he allowed six runs on seven hits in three-plus innings. That's just flat-out not OK and I hope whoever threw it gets punished. Stop trying to score runs?

Benintendi, already a Yankees nemesis, was on base four times and scored twice.

Those who pitched in relief for the Red Sox in the DS allowed seven runs in 17 innings (a 3.71 ERA) with 17 strikeouts and 11 walks.

Mitch Moreland was again on the bench with hamstring soreness, though Cora said he was available to pinch hit (he didn't). The big lefty was ejected from his last regular-season outing for hitting Tampa Bay catcher Jesus Sucre with a pitch during a testy game between division rivals on September 27. For the second straight night, Yankees rookie manager Aaron Boone hesitated to remove his starting pitcher early. "I saw Romine was on the mound, so you get a little antsy when a position player is on the mound".

When somebody's telling me, "Good luck for Sunday", I think always, "Unfortunately, we need it". "It was a back spasm". Tottenham as well", and added "But for us, for Manchester City , we want to defend our title, and they are contenders.
