David Price’s playoff woes continue as Yankees even series with Red Sox

David Price’s playoff woes continue as Yankees even series with Red Sox

Some three hours of baseball were played Saturday night between the moment the Boston Red Sox's starting pitcher departed the proceedings and the moment when Game 2 of the American League Division Series ended - some three hours in which the outcome was still more or less malleable, and the Red Sox's hopes of stealing a win from the visiting New York Yankees went from unlikely to quite fathomable to dwindling to nil.

The series now shifts back to NY for Games 3 and 4 on Monday and Tuesday. He wants to win and he knows he is certainly capable of getting it done. "That's kind of what we've been waiting for to some degree, where he can take over a game on offense".

The ovation came as Price jogged from the Red Sox's dugout to the third-base line, when he announced as one of the game's reserves. Yet the Bombers captured a pivotal Game 2, stealing home field advantage in the process, courtesy of Sanchez, who rewarded the Yankees' unwavering faith in him with a breakout offensive performance.

Game 5 would be back in Boston on Thursday, if necessary. David Price could join the bullpen after his early flameout in Game 2, since the left-hander lasted a mere 10 batters in a 6-2 loss. Both were lacking on Saturday night when Aaron Judge took him deep for a mammoth homer in the first, and Gary Sanchez followed suit in the second.

The U.S. military was moving its aircraft from the Panhandle on Monday. "This storm will be life-threatening and really unsafe ". We'll find out later this week how severe this storm shall be, but for now, it's time to batten down those hatches.

Red Sox manager Alex Cora says he made the decision because Porcello pitched two-thirds of an inning of relief in Friday's opener and he wanted to give him an extra day of rest. "So every single day I've been peeing like insane, being hydrated", Hicks said Sunday, according to the New York Post.

Makes a baseball fan excited about what will happen in the final few games of this ALDS. Bill Mueller smacked a 1-1 pitch back up the middle, chasing home Roberts with the tying run. Last October, Willson Contreras hit a 491-foot homer for the Cubs. Sanchez also became the first Yankee catcher to have a multi-home run game in the postseason since Hall of Famer Yogi Berra. "You get an opportunity to have the ball in Yankee Stadium, Game 4, this is the culmination of the entire season leads up to your opportunities in the postseason".

"They definitely have had a lot of confidence in me", said Sanchez. "I guess he told you guys he slipped or something like that". But a homer is a homer. I'm like, 'Man, if you don't break right away, just be accountable. Berra had two in Game 7 of the 1956 World Series. "The rivalry is always there, so it's always good to have a little bit of fun with it, I guess". "He said he's available", Cora told MassLive.com on Monday. "It's an honor to me". The 29-year-old functioned exclusively as a starter during the regular season, as has been the case throughout his career, and pitched to a 4.28 ERA/4.01 FIP with 8.94 K/9 and 2.26 BB/9 in 191 1/3 innings. NY won in the 10th, on a solo home run by Bernie Williams off Boston closer Rod Beck. The Red Sox would be thrilled if they get what Eovaldi provided in four of his last five starts with the Rays, when he completed at least six innings and allowed two earned runs or less each time.

At one point, Brasier was so angry about Sanchez's delay tactics that cameras caught him telling the catcher to "get back in the f--ing box".
