And now despite a stellar career in the regular season, you have to wonder if the left-hander will ever win a playoff game before retirement beckons. And the righthander's contribution to the Red Sox-Yankees rivalry has given Boston reason to be optimistic about his postseason debut. Rick Porcello is scheduled to start Game 4 on Tuesday and Chris Sale would be in line to pitch a Game 5, if necessary, at Fenway Park on Thursday.
The bombing began nearly from the outset.
Exactly 40 years ago, Munson, another revered Yankees catcher, homered in the eighth to help NY win Game 3 of the ALCS.
Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez continued his assault of Sox lefthander Davis Price, and is now 7-for-14 in his career against the former Cy Young victor, with home runs accounting for six of his seven hits.
Why he's here: Ortiz was only in his second season with the Red Sox in 2004, but he had already started to establish the foundation of what would be a strong Hall of Fame case. Boston didn't manage to catch a break until the fourth inning, when Xander Bogaerts jumped on a first-pitch fastball and postmarked it straight out to the center field stands for a solo home run.
Cora's rather simplistic handicapping of his team's chances to win the series was as elementary as it comes.

"That's kind of what we've been waiting for to some degree", Yankees Manager Aaron Boone said of Sanchez, who struggled with injuries and inconsistency this season, "where he can take over a game on offense". According to Statcast, it was the longest measured home run ever at the historic venue. When he's had six days of rest or more, he has a 1.67 ERA. That home run against David Price was nearly a reminder. The six-pack ties Jose Bautista for the most any batter has hit off of the 33-year-old starter.
"All empires fall sooner or later", then-Red Sox president Larry Lucchino said that night. "Alex had already told me ahead of time to prepare as if I'm going to start Game 3 but expect Game 4 - but given the fact that we faced the Yankees so many times, if you're not prepared for them now, you're in trouble, so I feel like I'm prepared for them".
Pulled after allowing the first two Boston runners aboard in the third and his team already trailing 3-0, Happ wasn't afforded the opportunity to work his way out of it. I know there's a point where everybody is all in. I'm like, 'Man, if you don't break right away, just be accountable.
Happ, of course, was touted by Yankees faithful as a key to the series.
Sanchez also had a solo shot in the second inning to give NY a 2-0 lead.
Since lasting just 1/3 of an inning in last year's wild-card game, Severino is 1-1 with a 3.20 ERA in four playoff starts, however he has pitched past the fifth inning just once.
