On Tuesday night, the Red Sox took care of business with their second straight win in NY, claiming the series in four games and setting up a meeting in the American League Championship Series with the Astros, who are flying high and ready to defend their World Series title after sweeping the Indians. Boston was up a footbally 10-0 after the top of the fourth inning, which was not a result anyone expected, but one that does have some precedence. Holt hit for the cycle in the Red Sox's 16-1 win.

Houston went 4-3 against Boston this season.

Romine joined Toronto infielder Cliff Pennington, who pitched in the 2015 AL playoffs against Kansas City, as non-pitchers to take the hill at this time of year.

"I don't know where he got that, but I didn't say [anything] about [being] hurt", Severino said. I'd expect him to be strong again tonight before turning it over to one of the best pullpens in baseball. Rick Porcello is scheduled to pitch against NY lefty CC Sabathia.

"No, I didn't envision myself getting into the playoffs in this role", he said. But I scooted up in the box a little bit, and I was going to be swinging at anything and try to hook anything. He got a fly out to deep right-center, a slow chopper to third base and then fanned Hicks looking on a slider at the knees.

New York, which scored its lone run on a groundout by Didi Gregorius in the fourth, saw its seven-game home postseason streak snapped. That could be the Game 1 matchup if the Red Sox are willing to start Sale on three days' rest following his relief outing on Tuesday.

The Red Sox move on to their first ALCS since 2013 after marching into Yankee Stadium and sweeping both games.

He worked seven sharp innings on 97 pitches, allowing just one run on five singles and striking out five.

"I was just trying to use their aggressiveness against them and try and get some quick outs", Eovaldi said. He noted that Darling appeared aware that he might be coming off as a curmudgeon - the analyst went on to assert during Monday's telecast that he was a fan of bat-flips and "letting the kids play" - only to claim that "you have to judge for yourself, if you feel like rubbing it in starts to rub you the wrong way". The stolen base, in particular, was laughable in that it actually offended anyone.

It was electric stuff that played even bigger on the postseason stage.

You can always, if you're inclined this way, look at these Yankees-Red Sox games through the well-smudged lens of history. Steve Pearce later scored Benintendi on an RBI single to give Boston an 8-0 advantage.

Monday marked the first time an umpire had three calls overturned by replay in a postseason game. It was the most lopsided postseason loss in team history and a truly embarrassing thrashing.
