Dichotomy between Boone and Cora looms large in wild Game 3

Dichotomy between Boone and Cora looms large in wild Game 3”

Before we watch what will happen over the next few days, let's look back at the players - the stars and the surprises - who have worn the hero capes in this short, but intense, playoff rivalry.

With Rick Porcello scheduled to start Game 4 on Tuesday and Chris Sale likely to pitch Game 5 back in Boston if it's necessary, Price's best shot at redeeming himself in this series will be coming out of the bullpen.

He'll be the answer to a trivia question for that, and also for allowing Brock Holt's ninth-inning home run, which wrapped up the first-ever cycle in postseason history.

The Red Sox humiliated the Yankees, 16-1, in Game 3 of the ALDS Monday night in the Bronx.

"This one I'll remember for a long time", said Holt, unaware of his achievement until told by a television reporter right after the final out.

Luis Severino lasted just three-plus innings and allows six runs in disappointing ALDS Game 3 start for Yankees. "It was a good night". At long last, Green got Vázquez to ground out to end the inning, finally putting the cap on a seven-run outburst that saw the score run up to 10-0. Severino retired just nine batters, Lynn was hooked after facing just four men in relief and Nathan Eovaldi was left to cut through the unsafe NY lineup with a comfortable cushion. "But, I'm just here to try to help the guys out there". Boone stuck with Severino, who proceeded to walk Jackie Bradley, Jr. on four pitches to load the bases. "I need a home run for a cycle, '" Holt said.

The rout was on following a seven-run fourth inning, started with singles by Holt and Vazquez. Lance Lynn surrendered a bases-loaded walk to Mookie Betts and a bases-clearing double to Andrew Benintendi that gave the Red Sox a 7-0 lead.

As it was, the Yankees appeared to have little fight left after the interminable, deflating fourth inning, though a large part of that could be attributed to Red Sox starter Nathan Eovaldi, who carved up their vaunted lineup for seven dominating innings with a fastball that topped out at 101 miles per hour and an assortment of secondary pitches. Like so many of their milestones set or matched this season, the previous reference points were teams that won championships.

Game 3 of the American League Division Series is monumental, there's no doubt about that.

There were 329 pitches thrown by nine pitchers on Monday night, and it was Eovaldi who threw the 25 hardest.

Ortiz went 6-for-12 in the first three games of the ALCS, but his Red Sox lost all three games.

"He does a lot inside, and then he comes out a little bit later than most starters", Rothschild said. "It was a special moment for me". He came up with two outs and runners on first and second; on the 10th pitch of his at-bat against Esteban Loaiza, Ortiz smacked a single into center, scoring Damon with the winning run. "He's had success against them, and it seems like it's a good matchup; obviously, in the playoffs, game planning is part of it, and I know they're going to be ready, but we will too, and we trust his stuff".
