Red Sox hold on in 9th vs. Yankees to advance to ALCS

Red Sox hold on in 9th vs. Yankees to advance to ALCS”

"It's fantastic how he's getting jobs umpiring in these playoff games".

Aces Justin Verlander and Chris Sale will battle it out Friday in Game 1, while Astros right-hander Gerrit Cole and Sox lefty David Price will take the mound Saturday for Game 2. I'm sure that'll go well and not have one hint of controversy.

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.

"I think we're right there knocking on the door", Boone said, "very close to being a championship club right now".

Craig Kimbrel and the Boston Red Sox held off the Yankees' ninth-inning rally that ended with a video replay, eliminating NY with a 4-3 victory Tuesday night that set up a postseason rematch with the World Series champion Houston Astros.

"We're ready for another shot", Red Sox pitcher Rick Porcello said.

"He's absolutely awful", Sabathia said.

Pitching on 11 days' rest and perhaps for the final time in pinstripes, Sabathia escaped a bases-loaded jam in the first when Kinsler hit an inning-ending flyout to Gardner in front of the left-field wall. "But he shouldn't be around these playoff games".

In possibly his final start of a 10-year run with the Yankees, Sabathia allowed three runs on five hits in three innings.

"Throw the ball over the plate C.C".

Following the Yankees' win in Game 2 at Fenway Park in Boston, Judge played the Sinatra tune from a boombox while walking past the Red Sox.

Mitch Moreland was again on the bench with hamstring soreness, though Cora said he was available to pinch hit (he didn't).

A Yankee Stadium crowd of 49,641 wondered and the Red Sox paused as they watched from the infield in suspended celebration, fixated on the center-field video board.

By then, the Red Sox appeared in control.
