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

The last time the Red Sox played a postseason game in Yankee Stadium was in the American League Championship Series, October of 2004.

Hernandez, a notoriously shaky umpire, blew three calls on close plays at first base in the first four innings. The Yankees and the Red Sox all over again. After all, NY hit by far the most home runs of any team in the regular season, and it scored five or more runs in an inning 16 times (per Baseball Reference). Closer Craig Kimbrel almost blew the game, however, as he walked two batters and Gary Sanchez just missed a walk-off grand slam when his towering fly ball to left field was caught on the warning track. Eduardo Nunez, 3B; 8: Jackie Bradley Jr.

Houston advanced by completing a sweep of the Cleveland Indians on Monday. The Yankees and Red Sox won 209 regular season games between them this year. It's the first LCS matchup of 100-win teams since 1977, when the Yankees beat the Royals in the ALCS and the Dodgers beat the Phillies in the NLCS.

Facing elimination tonight - along with the threat of seeing the Red Sox pop bottles in their stadium for the second time in less than three weeks - the Yanks are sending CC Sabathia to the mound in an attempt to force a fifth game. He was pulled after four straight batters reached in the fourth. If he's up with the bases empty and two outs tonight, he might want to be prepared to duck.

Yankees: 1. Aaron Hicks, CF; 2. The ace and potential Game 5 starter instead entered in relief and delivereda 1-2-3 frame. Of note, he brought in Porcello in relief in Game 1 and he retired Miguel Andújar and Gary Sánchez. "It was unbelievable before the game and the first few innings, and he was just being Nate".

The Yankees insisted after the game Monday night, there was nothing unusual about Severino's preparation.

At an earlier point in Monday's telecast, Darling told viewers that the pitcher did not begin his bullpen warmup until 7:32 p.m., just 10 minutes before he was scheduled to take the mound against the Red Sox. The Red Sox are a +168 underdog, while the total is set at 8.5 runs. "I know he's swinging the bat well and I know what he did yesterday, but this is a different game and we feel this is the best lineup that we have to go against him and they understand that. You don't usually see that", the 58-year-old analyst said on TBS's telecast (via Awful Announcing).

With a chance to finish off the Yankees, Cora couldn't resist using Sale to bridge the gap to Kimbrel. "Yeah, the fans are going to be loud, but I'm looking forward to pitching with that!"

Next up: The defending champs, who rolled through Cleveland in sweeping their series.

New York, which scored its lone run on a groundout by Didi Gregorius in the fourth, saw its seven-game home postseason streak snapped. Sale didn't pitch in that series, but neither did Verlander. Mookie Betts hits a rocket, (Xander) Bogaerts hits a rocket.
