Yankees Feel Good With Severino On The Hill In Game 3

Yankees Feel Good With Severino On The Hill In Game 3

The ultimate wisdom of that decision is in the process of being tested here in October. After squandering an early lead and narrowly losing Game 1 to the Red Sox on Friday night, they found their mojo again with some help from homegrown sluggers Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez, both of whom were instrumental in boosting the club to a 6-2 win to tie the series.

The series is now tied, 1-1, as we head back to NY. I tallied the number of times a team that won any game in a series won the next game in the series, which, I think, makes at least a decent back-of-the-napkin indicator for momentum.

"This is my first postseason start", Eovaldi said. In fact, six of the eight teams have players that were in Dunedin in spring training. He pitched for NY in 2015 and '16 before injuring his elbow, which required Tommy John surgery for the second time. A video of the moment circulated on the web, and Dustin Pedroia mentioned it to Sox manager Alex Cora. "He can even get away with mistakes". If you hear that from Yankees staff or something like that, maybe you can believe it, but I don't know where he got that from.

The team with momentum, so to speak, inside a postseason series wins the next game only about half the time, and this really shouldn't come as much of a surprise.

The Yankees' high-powered offense, which set a big league record for homers in the regular season, smashed three more Saturday night, with right fielder Aaron Judge and catcher Gary Sanchez victimizing Price, and a second shot by Sanchez - a three-run homer off lefty Eduardo Rodriguez, which traveled a staggering 479 feet - breaking the game open in the seventh.

"I don't know where he got that, but I didn't say nothing about I was hurt", Severino said, per MassLive.com.

Who follows Eovaldi in the late innings, if necessary, is anybody's best guess.

Severino was 10-2 with a 2.74 ERA and.217 opponents' batting average at home, just 9-6 with a 3.99 ERA and.257 opponents' batting average on the road. Luis Severino, coming off four scoreless innings in the wild-card game against Oakland, starts for NY and former Yankees pitcher Nathan Eovaldi pitches for the Red Sox.

But on Saturday night, the player feeling the crush of those walls, and hearing the vitriol of the crowd, wore the home-white trousers and home-red jersey of the Red Sox. I felt like there was some benefit, just the nature of hamstrings and we have Brett Gardner sitting there I thought it was the best thing to do. I've certainly been guilty of it myself, and anyone eager to prove me a waffling fool upon reading this post could dig up countless examples of this author stating - in print, online, in radio interviews, in real-life conversations - that playoff wins like the Yankees' series-evening victory in Boston on Saturday might represent some greater change in the course of the series.

Joe Kelly doused the Price flames with 2.1 innings of one-hit relief and Ryan Brasier didn't allow a hit in his one inning on the mound. Roberts, who stole five bases in 45 games with Boston after he arrived in a July 31 trade from the Dodgers, stole second base on Rivera's first pitch, beating the throw from Jorge Posada, to move into scoring position.

Let's get back to David Price.

Ortiz went 6-for-12 in the first three games of the ALCS, but his Red Sox lost all three games.
