Sox beat Yankees 4-3, advance to ALCS

For just the second time ever, the Red Sox got to celebrate advancing in the postseason on the field of their rivals, the Yankees, while at Yankee Stadium. Boston did so with class, pure joy and a hint of pettiness.

Starter CC Sabathia blasted Hernandez after New York's 4-3 loss to the Boston Red Sox in Game 4 of the American League Division Series, saying unprompted that the veteran umpire was "terrible" behind the plate in the Yankees' season-ending defeat in the Bronx. But not only did they pop bottles-they did so to Frank Sinatra's "New York, New York".

Shortly before the game began, TBS aired footage of Severino going down to the Yankees bullpen 10 minutes before the game, throwing his first pitch off the mound at 7:32, or eight minutes before he was due on the real mound for.

After beating Oakland in the AL wild-card game, it was a humbling playoff exit for a power-packed Yankees team that added reigning NL MVP Giancarlo Stanton last off-season and hit a major league-record 267 home runs.

J.D. Martinez added an RBI single in the seventh off Jonathan Holder, and Holt hit an RBI double in the eighth off Stephen Tarpley.

Asked whether Hernandez was the reason the Yankees lost, Sabathia responded: "Not at all".

The series will also see Red Sox manager Alex Cora take on his old team.

The expiration date: It's a little hard to make it out all these years later, but there's a good chance it says October 8, 2018. The Red Sox produced their fourth seven-run inning in a postseason game and first since Game 1 of the 2007 World Series against the Colorado Rockies. The Yankees were a ideal 7-0 at Yankee Stadium in the postseason since the 2017 wild-card game, winning those games by an aggregate margin of 42-14.

"It's a good song".

We posted the first missed call above. "We like to hear that song sometimes when we win a big game".

Boone acknowledged some regret in allowing ace Luis Severino to start the fourth inning down 3-0. By the time the inning was over, the Red Sox had a 3-0 lead they never relinquished. "I don't think it's really quite settled in yet".

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.

"I think it's going to be fantastic". He used Christian Vazquez at catcher, despite the fact he hadn't caught Porcello all year, and Vazquez snuck a flyball over the wall in left against Zach Britton - his first homer since June 26 - to extend the Boston lead to 4-0. "They won 108 games", Judge said. "So that ended up affecting the Cy Young-type of season that he was having and affecting his performance when they needed him the most".
