Major League Baseball announces start times for first two games of ALCS

Home-field advantage Yankees and their electric fanbase have Red Sox right where they want them

Home-field advantage Yankees and their electric fanbase have Red Sox right where they want them

The Yankees must win both Game 4 and Game 5 in order to advance to meet the Astros in the ALCS.

Hopefully, for Hernandez's sake, he is done blowing calls tonight.

In the seventh, still leading 10-1, Benintendi swung at a 3-and-0 pitch from Yankees reliever Jonathan Holder. If the benches cleared, it would be fantastic entertainment - but not wise for the Yanks to do anything drastic or unnecessary when they have their season on the line. And as terrible of a night as it was for us, we got to turn the page. They'll need to do something to show some pride and keep the series alive, if only from a mental standpoint.

Of course, Sabathia might not be long for Game Four even if he pitches well. ALDS performance: In Game 1, Verlander went 5⅓ innings, striking out seven and walking two of the 20 batters he faced while giving up only two runs on two hits.

This year belongs to the Red Sox. He came in to score the Red Sox's fourth run on a bases-loaded walk issued by Lance Lynn. He waited for his chance as the fourth batter of the final inning.

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. And the Red Sox plated 12 runs off them in 17 innings this series.

Darling, who's also calls regular season games for the Mets, is now pushing back and standing behind what he said. After all, NY hit by far the most home runs of any team in the regular season, and it scored five or more runs in an inning 16 times (per Baseball Reference). And in a comment that could have him taking a fastball on the backside, he admitted that he was trying to do it.

"I think from pitch 1, we let them know that we were here", Cora said. "You don't usually see that", the 58-year-old analyst said on TBS's telecast (via Awful Announcing).

"Lance had a little bit of trouble, obviously, coming in there. I need a homer". "I rounded the bases, and seeing everyone going nuts in the dugout was a pretty cool moment for me". David Price suffered the loss as he surrendered three earned runs on three hits with two strikeouts over 1 2/3 innings.

Not sure what Darling or any of baseball's other gatekeepers wanted the Red Sox to do.

The game fell apart quickly, too. But that argument won't work on baseball's biggest supporters of maintaining the game's convoluted, overbearing "code".

Yankees: CF Aaron Hicks remained out of the lineup after missing Game 2 with tightness in his right hamstring, which forced him from the series opener Friday. He's going to be the home plate umpire tomorrow night in Game 4. Boston ended up winning 10-3, paving the way to the Red Sox's first World Series title since 1918. So the Yankees will certainly have to be careful, if anything.

Overall, the admiration for the diminutive utility player, whose struggles with injuries limited him to just 64 games last season, was overwhelming.
