Did late warm-up play role in Luis Severino's poor start?

GETTING HIS CUTS Rafael Devers who was in the lineup for the Red Sox last night at Yankee Stadium works in the batting cage before Game 3

Mike Fitzpatrick, The Associated Press •.

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

After all, the game was decided long ago. After coming to Boston in late July, he made two starts against the Yankees, allowing no runs through 14 total innings. I'm sure that'll go well and not have one hint of controversy. Three innings later, Ortiz ended the game with his walk-off home run. "Both games in Boston were good games, but we come here to win".

"It's unbelievable", adds Didi Gregorius of the Stadium atmosphere.

Oh, and Hernandez will be the home-plate umpire.

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

Perhaps the Red Sox believe Holt's success has been more matchup related. Holt completed the first cycle in postseason history with the homer. Either way, Eovaldi came up huge in an incredibly crucial game, and his effort on the mound - paired with an outstanding showing at the plate by the Red Sox lineup - has put this team in position to close out their rivals in the Bronx. Evaluating Boston's offense, Sabathia said: "They've got speed, they've got power. I need a home run for a cycle, '" Holt said. "I scooted up in the box a little bit, and I was going to be swinging at anything and try to hook anything". "I was going to try to hit a home run, but I figured I'd ground out to first". Jason Varitek led off the eighth with a home run off Hernandez and Nomar Garciaparra followed with a double to force Torre to go to his bullpen, but four relievers combined to shut down Boston and give the Yankees the victory and the trip to the World Series. "I rounded the bases, and seeing everyone going nuts in the dugout was a pretty cool moment for me". "Everybody was rooting for him". "Our fans are wonderful, especially in the postseason". " ... It just snowballed on him".

"I think from pitch 1, we let them know that we were here", Cora said.

Mookie Betts, in fact, hit a 405-foot flyout to the center-field warning track to begin the game.

Was Luis Severino confused about this game's start time? Ian Kinsler finished 1-for-4 with an RBI double.

"It's part of my story now", Holt said of his health history. "But we had to take our best shots with the righties in the lineup".

Middle 1st, 0-0: Right off the bat, the Red Sox got a prime opportunity.

The Yankees responded past year, of course, and while it won't necessarily be a referendum on the new manager if they don't do the same this time, it would surely be a reminder that there's still more to managing than crunching the numbers and carrying out even the best-laid plans of the front office. They have played and won two consecutive AL Wild Card Games, recovered from an 0-2 deficit to the Indians in last year's ALDS, and won three straight at home last year against the Astros in the ALCS before falling in Games 6 and 7 at Houston.

Bumped up a day in front of Porcello, he delivered a gem in his first postseason appearance. Severino went just three innings, giving up six earned runs and seven hits in the 16-1 Game 3 loss to Boston.
