Boston's Brock Holt rides into history on game's first postseason cycle

Adjust Comment Print

Umpire Angel Hernandez had a rough Game 3 of the ALDS on Monday night, having four of his calls reviewed by replay and three overturned in fewer than five innings of the game. He led off that inning with a single to shallow center, and later came around to score the fourth run of the night for Boston.

Romine had just become the second position player in history to pitch in a postseason game, while Holt was a home run shy of becoming the first batter in history to hit for a postseason cycle.

Holt grounded out in the sixth but hit a ground-rule double to deep right-center field in the eighth inning, extending the Red Sox' lead to 12-1 at the time.

In the bottom of the second, Hernandez called Didi Gregorious safe at first base on a bunt attempt. Even myself, I think I was a little bit overaggressive. Now the question is whether the Red Sox can eliminate the Bombers in the Bronx again, just like they did in 2004. David Price suffered the loss as he surrendered three earned runs on three hits with two strikeouts over 1 2/3 innings.

"It's been a while since Boston played Yankees in the playoffs".

Later in the fourth, Holt stepped to the plate with two runners on base, and he brought them both home when he ripped a triple deep down the right field line. It's not something that gets talked about much, but Eovaldi has been money for the Red Sox in games against the Yankees this season. "We felt the matchup was good for him". I told a couple of teammates that he has no idea that in 2016 and '18, Betts and Mike Trout will have finished 2-1 and 1-2 in the MVP voting and Wins Above Replacement science. Furthermore, Severino admitted after the game, "I wasn't commanding my stuff", right from the first pitch. But tonight, I think we settled down pretty nice.

Yankees and Red Sox fans are, of course, nothing if not patient and understanding... "Mitch is available, but he's not 100 percent", Cora said.

"No choice but to flush", manager Aaron Boone said. Brett Gardner was back in center, but Boone said he wouldn't hesitate to use Hicks in any role off the bench.

Eovaldi was 3-3 with a 3.33 in 11 starts and one relief appearance for the Red Sox, who acquired him from Tampa Bay in July. And he hasn't had a particularly good year, putting up a 5.10 ERA with the Twins and a 4.14 ERA with the Yankees.

Instead, coming off a career-high 19 wins, he exited with a 1-2 record and a 6.26 ERA in six postseason starts. CC Sabathia (9-7, 3.65 ERA), 8:07 p.m. ET, TBS and ESPN Radio. He said he threw all fastballs, despite what the pitch-recognition systems were calling them, the fastest of which hit 90 miles per hour and the slowest of them at 68.

If awful umpire Angel Hernandez really wants to gain traction for his lawsuit against Major League Baseball, he should probably not make repeated mistakes on the game's biggest stage.

"I mean, in hindsight because he didn't get an out, sure", Boone said.
