Boston escapes ninth-inning rally, ousts Yankees for trip to ALCS

Why the Yankees are now favored to win Red Sox series

Yankees center fielder Aaron Hicks remained out of the lineup after missing Game 2 with tightness in his right hamstring that forced him from the opener Friday night at Fenway Park.

The Red Sox earned that right on Tuesday night when they eliminated the Yankees with a 4-3 victory in Game 4 of the ALDS.

Red Sox manager has the utmost confidence in Porcello heading into Game 4 and expects the right-hander to turn in a quality start against a Yankees club that he's had success against this season.

Craig Kimbrel somehow, someway, got the save, almost squandering a three-run lead as part of a wild ninth inning. The 28-year-old right-hander, who throws at 97-98 miles per hour, allowed no earned runs in three of four starts this year against the Yankees.

Facebook downgrades breach count from 50 million to 30 million users
The social media giant has, however, not clarified if the private messages of affected users too had been breached. Facebook said the FBI is investigating, but asked the company not to discuss who may be behind the attack.

The question manager Aaron Boone will now have to answer is why Severino was allowed to start the fourth inning after clearly being on the ropes after three.

Still, given the way Cora navigated the Red Sox to three wins in four tries against a potent Yankees team, you'd have to give them a fighting chance against the Astros.

But Cora expressed confidence in Price afterward, claiming that Astros ace Justin Verlander and Red Sox Hall of Famer Pedro Martinez also struggled in the playoffs early in their careers. But not only did they pop bottles-they did so to Frank Sinatra's "New York, New York". The current Red Sox staff entered the series with a 0-19 postseason record as starters, and now everyone but Price has picked up a win.

Boston added championships in 2007 and 2013, becoming one of baseball's elite clubs, but the Red Sox had been knocked out in the Division Series the previous two years and had not reached the sport's final four since their last title. "We like to hear that song sometimes when we win a big game".

Those who pitched in relief for the Red Sox in the DS allowed seven runs in 17 innings (a 3.71 ERA) with 17 strikeouts and 11 walks. The Yankees were a ideal 7-0 at Yankee Stadium in the postseason since the 2017 wild-card game, winning those games by an aggregate margin of 42-14.

Senate Turns To Health Care, Dems Force Vote They Can Campaign On
During the vote, Murkowski withdrew her "no" vote, changing it to "present" instead, effectively pairing it with Republican Sen. Cory Gardner of Colorado insisted it was actually the Democrats who had done themselves no favours with the vote.

The Red Sox built a 3-0 lead on Luis Severino (0-1) through three innings and led 4-0 when Benintendi stepped in against Lance Lynn.

Before the last two games, NY was 7-0 at home over the past two postseasons.

Hicks lobbied to start, but Boone said he felt there was some benefit in waiting at least another day because hamstrings can be fickle and Gardner provides a quality alternative.

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. Don't know about you, but after this, my nerves will be ready for another Red Sox-Yankees series in, oh, about 14 years.
