The Yankees Prove the Best Opener Is Still a Dominant Starter

Other than opening with a reliever on the mound, nothing was any different about this October for the Oakland Athletics.
Severino started the AL wild-card game against Oakland on Wednesday night, pitching four shutout innings as the Yankees advanced to the ALDS.
"Unless you play the last game, it's disappointing", manager Bob Melvin said.

Senate paves way for Kavanaugh confirmation

Twitter quickly jumped on the A's after their strategy backfired.
The A's did not officially name their starter after Sunday's loss to the Angels, but there are strong indications Hendriks will be the one called upon to open things as part of a bullpenning strategy at Yankee Stadium, which might not be as insane as you think. With the Yankees' deep and talented bullpen, a comeback after the fifth inning would be almost impossible.
"I just want to win", Severino said Tuesday, according to the AP. "Anytime you get to put baseball on the forefront in Australia it's a good thing", Hendriks said. "After that, I kind of settled down a little bit and got into a rhythm, and I was able to retire the next three". Yankee Stadium is alive again. For New York, they are one of three teams in the league with at least 100 wins.
The Yankees now lead 2-0 over the Athletics, as the game is available on TBS. And by the time David Robertson succeeded Betances to start the seventh inning, he enjoyed the benefit of a 6-0 cushion. "Their pitching just showed up tonight". It lined up to be a real David vs Goliath in NY. It came after Aaron Judge homered, Luke Voit tripled, and Luis Severino tossed four scoreless innings ahead of Dellin Betances, who tacked on two more. In his one playoff series, which came with the St. Louis Cardinals in the 2015 NLDS against the Chicago Cubs, Piscotty went off with a.375 average and three home runs over four games. "I had a hard time getting my slider down".
But by then, it was way too late.
"It's not the ideal situation", catcher Jonathan Lucroy acknowledged. NY became the first team since the 2001 A's to reach triple digits in wins and fail to finish first. "We feel like he's back to normal and a guy we're not afraid to go one-plus or two innings with". "We just didn't do it". You do have to give them credit. "Every single pitch they're locked in". Whether it's throwing out a runner on the bases, swiping a bag, or starting a rally with a big hit, the A's could use a boost in some form from the exciting outfielder to get them going.
