He struck out 17 in that span, issuing only three walks. He allowed two runs by hitting Neil Walker in the foot and allowing a sacrifice fly to Gary Sanchez to deep left but escaped by retiring Gleyber Torres.

Boston first baseman Steve Pearce stretched for an outstanding catch that nipped Torres. The Red Sox scored first both nights in Yankee Stadium and will now play in the ALCS for the 11th time in franchise history.

Moved back a day after throwing 15 pitches in the eighth inning of Game 1, Porcello (1-0) displayed command of the strike zone most of the night.

A New Jersey native who grew up a Mets fan, Porcello held the Yankees to one run over five innings for his first post-season win.

NY got its first run on Brett Gardner's sacrifice fly in the fifth.

Not even the presence of 1978 AL East tiebreaker star Bucky Dent for the ceremonial first pitch could inspire the 100-win Yankees, who were outscored 27-14 in the series, including 20-4 in the final two games.

Wild from the start, he walked Aaron Judge to start the inning, then gave up a single to Didi Gregorius to bring the tying run to the plate in Giancarlo Stanton.

"Awesome to clinch this one", Red Sox reliever Matt Barnes said, "but we've got eight more".

He didn't allow a run until a sacrifice fly in the fifth by Brett Gardner, like Sabathia playing perhaps his last game for the Yankees. Kinsler made it 2-0 with a double over Gardner's head in left, and Nunez made it 3-0 with a single to left. Chris Sale is slated for Game 1 of the series. Holt and Devers returned to the bench as Kinsler and Nunez re-entered the starting lineup.

Matt Barnes got two groundouts in a scoreless sixth, Ryan Brasier pitched a ideal seventh and Chris Sale ended a scoreless eighth by striking out Hicks.

The Red Sox manager noted the differences between Minute Maid Park and Fenway Park as the reason for Price to start Game 2 opposed to a later game in Houston. The 10 straight losses are the longest streak in postseason history.

David Price will indeed start again for the Boston Red Sox this postseason.
