‘Embarrassing’: Yanks routed by Red Sox 16-1, trail ALDS 2-1

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 defending World Series champion Houston Astros come to Fenway Park Saturday night.

Holt finished 4-for-6 in the Red Sox's 16-1 blowout in the Game 3 of the American League Division Series against the rival New York Yankees.

Craig Kimbrel somehow, someway, got the save, almost squandering a three-run lead as part of a wild ninth inning.

Yankees manager Aaron Boone only has two games of Stadium postseason experience to draw on himself - this year's Wild Card Game as the manager, and last year's as a broadcaster - but he knows those two games against the Twins and Athletics will be nothing compared to the next two nights.

Aaron Hicks remains out of the lineup with a hamstring injury, so Aaron Boone had to make some changes ahead of Monday's big matchup.

Or do you let him go as long as he can to avoid the Yankees coming back like they almost did in Game 1? He pitched five innings allowing just one run on four hits, and manager Alex Cora questionably removed Porcello from the game before the sixth inning even though he had only thrown 60-something pitches.

The New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox may have the most heated rivalry in baseball, but that won't prevent Mookie Betts from showing some common courtesy.

What the Red Sox do for Game 4 is 100% reliant on what happens on Monday.

Nine thoughts on the Red Sox' Division Series-clinching 4-3 victory over the Yankees. Matt Barnes and Ryan Brasier followed with a flawless inning each to protect a 4-1 lead, and Red Sox ace Chris Sale followed with a 1-2-3 eighth in a rare relief appearance. The Yankees were a flawless 7-0 at Yankee Stadium in the postseason since the 2017 wild-card game, winning those games by an aggregate margin of 42-14.

"I mean, we always play well here at home", Game 3 starter Luis Severino 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. "And Aaron, he's one of our resident deejays, so he's got a pretty extensive playlist", Boone said later that day at Yankee Stadium, a smirk filling his face.

"Yeah, I think that's something that really started previous year, as this fan base absolutely connected with this new young corps that has developed", Boone said.

Before the game, Cora was outspoken about a "very slim" chance he would use Sale, yet there was the lanky lefty trotting in from the bullpen to start the eighth, and three batters later, he was trotting into the dugout for high fives.

At the final out Tuesday night, at least once the replay review confirmed it, the Red Sox converged near the mound and hugged each other.

Zach Britton gave up an opposite-field homer to No. 9 batter Christian Vazquez in the fourth, and NY never fully recovered.
