Alex Cora’s Lineup Shakeup Pays Off In Game 3 Rout

David Price Booed Mercilously by Boston Fans After Another Playoff Failure

Despite having a 5.57 ERA in the second half of the season and throwing four-plus innings in the wild-card game, Yankees RHP Luis Severino is confident he can give NY a 2-1 series lead over the Boston Red Sox in Game 3 of the ALDS on Monday.

Games 3 and 4 are at Yankee Stadium on Monday and Tuesday nights, with Game 5 back in Boston on Thursday, if necessary. "And if we have the opportunity to score runs like that, you know, even if it's 300 feet, I'll take it".

"No, no. He's one of our starters", Red Sox Manager Alex Cora said when that question was posed. With the bases loaded, he lined a single down the right field line to clear the bases, extending the 4-0 advantage to 7-0. Three decisions - to not have the "pen moving to start the fourth, having too long a leash on Severino, and going with Lynn over an actual reliever - put the game practically out of reach for the Yankees". Surely, by dint of the law of averages or just sheer luck, Price should have won Game 2 on Saturday.

Price gave up three runs on three hits, including two home runs, and recorded only five outs before he was pulled from the game to a chorus of boos in the second inning. Tanaka now has a 1.50 ERA in 30 career postseason innings.

Prior to the Yankees Wild Card win over the A's, Pedro Martinez, who works as an analyst for TBS, took time out of the broadcast to let the world know that Severino made him aware that he wasn't completely healthy during the second half of the regular season - and that the club needed him on the mound, hence his decline in productivity. "That's what happens when you miss it right in the middle of the plate". It went down as the second-longest postseason homer in the Statcast era (since 2015). The hit would have been a homer in many ballparks.

Aaron Judge helped chase David Price early by hitting a home run to a part of Fenway Park where balls rarely travel.

Judge is certainly happy with his team's performance so far.

"If I don't like it", he said, "I need to pitch better, period". "Maybe I can tell you tomorrow". But a homer is a homer. Mitch Moreland was 1-for-3 and scored a run. 190 of the 214 regular season games in which he's appeared have been starts. 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.

"I definitely did not know that".

I'd expect him to be strong again tonight before turning it over to one of the best pullpens in baseball. "It's an honor to me".

After one of his shortest outings of the season - and his only disastrous start since becoming a New York Yankee, Friday's Game 1 losing starter J.A. Happ was in shock afterwards.

The teams have Sunday off before resuming the series in NY on Monday night.

Also of note: Sanchez has six homers off Price and incredibly has done so in just 14 at-bats.

At one point, Brasier was so angry about Sanchez's delay tactics that cameras caught him telling the catcher to "get back in the f--ing box".
