Severino's 10-2 record and 2.74 ERA this season at Yankee Stadium, including seven innings of one-run ball the last time he faced the Sox on September 19, should give him all the confidence needed to put the Yankees up 2-1 in the ALDS. Jeered as he walked to the dugout during a seven-run burst in the fourth, it soon was 10-0.

Brock Holt had one thing in mind: He was swinging for the fences.

Their ace got booed off the mound, loudly. Like I always say, I care about my arm and being healthy. "You are not supposed to get feedback from inside, but guys are watching the game, they go in the clubhouse and tell you how many pitches were borderline pitches or outside the box and we know, so right away we react to it".

Umpire Angel Hernandez had as rough of a night as the Yankees' pitching staff on Monday night, having three calls at first base overturned by replay review. After the game, an agitated Severino said of the analyst, "How does he know what time I normally go out?"

Before the big inning, Boston took a 3-0 lead on Vazquez's infield hit off Severino's glove in the second before getting two runs in the third on a sacrifice fly by Martinez and an RBI groundout by Rafael Devers. "I need a home run for a cycle, '" Holt said.

Making his first playoff start this year, Holt opened the fourth with a single off Severino and capped the 26-minute outburst with a triple to right field.

Benintendi, already a Yankees nemesis, was on base four times and scored twice. Rick Porcello is set to pitch for Boston while CC Sabathia will start for the Yankees. "It wasn't an issue". Against the Red Sox this season: 8 for 30 with a home run, a walk, and 10 Ks. The fans who left early missed a bit of history - Austin Romine became just the second position player to pitch in a postseason game.

Hernandez, a notoriously shaky umpire, blew three calls on close plays at first base in the first four innings. "Mitch is available, but he's not 100 percent", Cora said.

"No choice but to flush", manager Aaron Boone said. Especially when the Yankees may need to put a little extra on tonight's game with their season on the line and the fact that they're coming off an absolute spanking. Brett Gardner was back in center, but Boone said he wouldn't hesitate to use Hicks in any role off the bench. In Game 7, Ortiz crushed a two-run homer in the first inning off Kevin Brown, giving the Red Sox a 2-0 lead in a game they would never trail and eventually won 10-3.

Park. He is 0-3 with a 5.33 ERA in 12 career postseason outings, including four starts.

Boone and the Yankees should have a very short leash with Sabathia tonight.

Major League Baseball instead released a statement: "Postseason assignments are made on the basis of regular season performance, previous playoff experience, crew compatibility and other factors".

In their long and storied histories as iconic franchises in Major League Baseball, the Yankees and Red Sox have squared off against each other 2,215 times.
