Red Sox Name Starters for Games 1 and 2 of ALCS

Luis Severino

Hours earlier, Red Sox manager Alex Cora said it would have to be a flawless scenario for him to call on Sale in relief in Game 4 of the American League Division Series. It is not warm.

Game 4 was generally controversy-free, although Hernandez was behind the plate and didn't exactly have the world's most consistent strike zone for the myriad of arms that took the bump.

Such is the unique challenge facing the 2018 Red Sox, who won a major league-best (and franchise-best) 108 games this season yet enter the AL Championship Series as betting underdogs. Whether the rushed work in the bullpen affected Severino or not, he failed to deliver when the Yankees had a chance to force the Red Sox against the wall.

NY had not put a leadoff runner on until Kimbrel, a seven-time All-Star closer, walked Aaron Judge on four pitches leading off the ninth. Game 1 of the ALCS against Houston is set for Saturday night at Fenway Park. Barnes and Ryan Brasier followed with a ideal inning each to protect a 4-1 lead. Chris Sale is slated for Game 1 of the series. Unlike Boston's Eovaldi, Severino could not get ahead of batters, and the Red Sox made him and the Yankees pay.

"I hoped I was safe, but it is what it is", Torres said. For the second straight night, Yankees rookie manager Aaron Boone hesitated to remove his starting pitcher early.

And, after 100 regular-season wins, a thrilling Wild Card Game victory, and a insane ALDS, the Yankees end with two straight losses that truncate their season one round short of last year, and two rounds short of the ultimate goal - so there's nothing left to do but wait until next year. The case was moved last week from southern OH, where Hernandez's lawyer initially filed it, to NY after U.S. District Court Judge Michael R. Barrett ruled in favor of the league.

This obviously wasn't the only flying beer of note at Yankee Stadium this postseason, as a Yankees fan and A's fan went viral with their friendship after the former threw a beer at the latter in the immediate aftermath of the AL wild card game. Torres was ruled out and the call was upheld on replay review, officially giving the Red Sox a 4-3 win. Instead, according to Newsday's Tim Healey, he blames umpire Ángel Hernández. He was awful at first base [Monday]. "He was awful at first base [in Game 3]". Major League Baseball declined comment, spokesman Mike Teevan said.
