Yankees ace Luis Severino not seeing eye to eye with Pedro Martinez

Yankees ace Luis Severino not seeing eye to eye with Pedro Martinez

Their ace got booed off the mound, loudly. NY is 8-3 in its last 11 home games versus the Red Sox.

The Sox put themselves in put position to close out the series by trouncing the Yankees 16-1 in Game 3 on Monday night. Rick Porcello is scheduled to pitch against NY lefty CC Sabathia. Boone said Hicks was doing "significantly better", and sitting him was a much more hard decision than it was Saturday. The good news is tonight's game will start 0-0. Nothing anyone can do now other than turn the page and focus on Game Four tonight.

Despite the minor blip in the radar, Severino will look to build off his solid, yet shortened Wild Card start - when he tossed four innings of shutout ball while striking out seven and allowing two hits. There was a TBS report that he began to warm up only 10 minutes before the game began, but Boone insisted he had enough time to get ready. Severino also said there was no issue.

The game fell apart quickly, too.

Oct 8, 2018; Bronx, NY, USA; Boston Red Sox second baseman Brock Holt (12) runs the bases after hitting a two-run home run against the New York Yankees during the ninth inning in game three of the 2018 ALDS playoff baseball series at Yankee Stadium. Jeered as he walked to the dugout during a seven-run burst in the fourth, it soon was 10-0.

By the seventh, the stands had started to empty. There's no Game 5 without Game 4.

The second-string catcher actually hit 90 miles per hour with his fastball.

Holt went 4-for-6 and finished off his cycle with a two-run homer off Yankees backup catcher Austin Romine in the ninth. But for the people in here.it's just like, 'Yeah, there's a reason we're doing this and that's what matters.' I get it. "Both games in Boston were good games, but we come here to win". Like I always say, I care about my arm and being healthy.

Hernandez had three calls at first base overturned during the Red Sox's 16-1 win over the Yankees.

A sellout crowd arrived early at Yankee Stadium, loudly chanting and cheering even before the teams lined up for pregame introductions. But his command never suffered as he kept the best home run-hitting team in baseball history from going deep.

Looking to play left-handed hitters against Severino, the first-year skipper inserted Holt at second base and Rafael Devers at third. Left fielder Andrew McCutchen was slow to retrieve a hit that proved costly. I'm sure that'll go well and not have one hint of controversy.

And when Boone did call for a reliever, he summoned a starter, Lance Lynn, rather than someone from the deep NY bullpen.

"Lance had a little bit of trouble, obviously, coming in there".

"I didn't know until I finally spoke to Severino that Severino wasn't totally healthy, and they could not afford to stop him from pitching, " Martinez said on the show.

It was a sharp turnaround for Severino.

This time past year, Aaron Boone and Alex Cora were experiencing the crowd at Yankee Stadium from very different positions.
