3 takeaways from ALDS Game 4

There was sizable risk in that move, given that if it didn't work, either the Red Sox would have to bring back Sale on one day of rest to pitch Game 5 on Thursday, or turn to David Price, who was one of just two Red Sox pitchers who had a bad series (Eduardo Rodriguez being the other). Craig Kimbrel allowed two runs before closing out the ninth to earn the save to eliminate the Yankees. "I'll play anywhere. I still want to play".

Yankees manager Aaron Boone only has two games of Stadium postseason experience to draw on himself - this year's Wild Card Game as the manager, and last year's as a broadcaster - but he knows those two games against the Twins and Athletics will be nothing compared to the next two nights. "But our guys were able to juggle that and Alex [Cora] did a good job handling the 'pen to get us ready to use the guys and [Heath] Hembree stepped in and pitched well for us".

Porcello said he had never been that nervous in a game before. "They push us throughout the whole season, and they push it even more here in the postseason, I think". Torres was ruled out and the call was upheld on replay review, officially giving the Red Sox a 4-3 win. "I scooted up in the box a little bit, and I was going to be swinging at anything and try to hook anything".

Whether fatigue or dead-arm played any part in Severino's less than stellar summer, Martinez's supposed declaration of an injury to the Yankees No. 1 pitcher is not only inflammatory if untrue, but insanely underhanded if indeed accurate - considering Severino credited much of his 2017 success to the Hall of Famer. "I expected to come back here and win two in a row", Gardner said. He knows stuff. He got the usual sports-radio yelping for deciding to start Ian Kinsler at second base over Game 3 cyclist Brock Holt, a choice that at the very least was defensible given that Sabathia held lefties to a.180/.339/.230 slash line this year.

Angel Hernandez is a horrific umpire and it's insane Major League Baseball keeps running him out for playoff games.

He ended up leading the Yankees with 38 homers and 100 RBIs, but his all-or-nothing approach at the plate showed that last season's NL MVP isn't the complete hitter that Judge is. The Red Sox produced their fourth seven-run inning in a postseason game and first since Game 1 of the 2007 World Series against the Colorado Rockies. "We like to hear that song sometimes when we win a big game". When Didi Gregorius lashed a double off Porcello in the fourth, it represented the Yankees' first extra-base hit since the seventh inning of Game 2.

There was no debating the better team all year, and there was no debating the better team in this series.
