Red Sox-Yankees ALDS Game 3

Stanton comes up small in big game as Yankees face must-win at Fenway

The Red Sox' manager said that even if the Sox lose Game 3, Chris Sale will not be starting in Game 4. Oh, and the Bucky Effing Dent game doesn't technically count - that unforgettable tiebreaker contest went down in the history books as Game 163 of the 1978 season - but those other 21 games have produced an impressive number of postseason heroes.

Of course, Sanchez's presence in the lineup, especially given his two home runs in Saturday's Game 2 win, is important, but Boone said his role as a game caller and on defense can not be underestimated.

"We have to keep it in the park", the first-year Red Sox manager said of a Yankees offence that set a major league record with 267 regular-season homers in 2018, a mark that had stood since the 1997 Seattle Mariners hit 264. Before we watch what will happen over the next few days, let's look back at the players - the stars and the surprises - who have worn the hero capes in this short, but intense, playoff rivalry. "We've known that all year, and you hit a couple homers in the postseason, it doesn't matter what you do in the regular season". October has a way of cementing legacies.

It's not easy finding a good matchup for Price against the Yankees.

His postseason leading up to Game 7 of the 2003 ALCS was not great. Next time just bust your a- to first base. "If it's Game 4, it's Game 4".

And there is no guarantee he will get another chance in 2018 - unless, perhaps, it is in relief - with Game 3 of this series to be played Monday night at Yankee Stadium, and the first team to notch two more wins advancing to the AL Championship Series next weekend.

"Two places that are historic franchises where the fans are definitely rowdy for their home team and against the visiting team", Red Sox reliever Matt Barnes said. Ortiz hit.545 in the ALDS sweep of the Angels, including a walk-off homer in Game 3.




What the Red Sox do for Game 4 is 100% reliant on what happens on Monday. The game went to extra innings, again, and again Ortiz delivered.

Stanton has hit the Boston righty well with three hits in 10 at-bats, including two doubles and two RBIs.

The Red Sox jumped out to a 5-0 lead over the Yankees after three innings in Game 1, but have scored just two runs since. But the Yankees early and often reminded David Price who he is.

The Yankees slugging centre fielder Aaron Judge, the second batter of the game, launched a solo home run and Gary Sanchez, the fifth NY player to the plate, led off the second with another round tripper. Bill Mueller smacked a 1-1 pitch back up the middle, chasing home Roberts with the tying run.

Meanwhile, the Red Sox got a run back against Tanaka on Xander Bogaerts's homer to straightaway center field in the fourth, and a second run against reliever Dellin Betances in the seventh. The Yankees' second batter of the game, Judge, crushed a home run to left-center field, at estimated 445 feet - Judge's third homer in three games this postseason. He struck out four and walked one. Six innings later, Ortiz ended the game with his RBI single. At Fenway Park, however, he is 0-2 with a 7.59 ERA. Eleven days later, NY won its 22nd World Series title.

Severino's 10-2 record and 2.74 ERA this season at Yankee Stadium, including seven innings of one-run ball the last time he faced the Sox on September 19, should give him all the confidence needed to put the Yankees up 2-1 in the ALDS.

With every bat that met ball was done so with alarming velocity, Price lasted just 1.2 innings and took the loss in an atmosphere squelching 6-2 defeat to the hated New York Yankees.
