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

Red Sox blow open Game 3 in stunning Yankees disaster Modal Trigger Christian Vazquez Getty Images

He even got offended when the Red Sox bunted at him to test his fielding capabilities in a 2017 game.

TBS analyst Ron Darling raised eyebrows, if not ire, during Game 3 of the Boston Red Sox-New York Yankees playoff series by declaring himself offended at Boston's attempts to tack on more runs while already holding a large lead.

The New York Yankees were 6-0 at home in the postseason previous year, and enter Monday's ALDS Game 3 with the AL Wild Card Game win in their pinstriped back pocket. I hear guys all the time say how hard it is to play here.

Twitter absolutely went off on Hernandez during and after the game and he was actually trending in the USA after. The Red Sox infielder ended the night 4-for-6 with five RBIs and three runs scored.

The Yankees lead the all-time series against the Astros with a 32-24 record, although the Astros have eliminated the Yanks from the postseason both times the teams have met - once in the 2015 American League Wild Card Game and again last season in the ALCS.

This year belongs to the Red Sox.

Overall, the admiration for the diminutive utility player, whose struggles with injuries limited him to just 64 games last season, was overwhelming. The suit alleges MLB chief baseball officer Joe Torre "has a history of animosity toward Hernandez stemming from Torre's time as manager of the New York Yankees".

A night after becoming a punch line for his three blown calls at first base that were overturned by replay, Angel Hernandez returned to Yankee Stadium in the most visible spot imaginable for an umpire: behind home plate. The Red Sox plated two more runs in the third frame before a huge fourth inning. I told everyone, 'Get me up. "If you hear that from Yankees staff or something like that, maybe you can believe it, but I don't know where you get that from".

He added when he walked outside he saw thick black smoke billowing so he hopped in his auto to take a closer look. Flame and smoke erupts from the Irving Oil refinery in Saint John, N.B., on Monday, September 8, 2018.


Boosted by noisy fans in their homer-friendly ballpark, the Yankees entered 7-0 at home the past two postseasons - against out-of-division opponents.

Holt began the frame with a leadoff single.

He got five good innings out of Rick Porcello, who pitched the eighth inning in Game 1. Andrew Benintendi plated three more runs with an RBI double in the next at-bat. Boston acquired him from Tampa Bay in July and the hard-throwing righty compiled a 1.93 ERA in four starts against NY this season - three with the Red Sox. First pitch from Yankee Stadium is slated for 8:07 p.m.

Benintendi has earned a reputation as a Yankee-killer.

Luis Severino looked out of sorts from the start. It certainly wouldn't be smart for Yankees starter C.C. Sabathia to plunk a guy on objective and risk getting ejected.

The Astros went 2-5 against the Yankees this season. The two teams split the first two games of the series in Boston.

"The first game didn't go our way, but we kept battling, and (Saturday), we started good and then we played good the whole game", Didi Gregorius said.

Just speaking from experience, I've never warmed up a starting pitcher who put his foot on the pitching rubber in the bullpen eight minutes before the first pitch was supposed to be thrown in a major league game.
