5 things that doomed the Yankees vs. the Red Sox in ALDS

Angel Hernandez

Trailing in Game 4 of the AL Division Series, the Yankees scored twice in the ninth and had runners at first and second with two outs.

Torres hit a slow ground ball to third base, and Eduardo Nunez fielded it. Steve Pearce stretched, falling on his chest for a sprawling catch. The Yankees immediately challenged and, with a sellout crowd standing and hoping, the out call was upheld after a 63-second look.

"He's absolutely bad", said Sabathia, who gave up three runs on five hits over three innings, with two walks and a strikeout.

The Red Sox advance to the AL Championship Series, where they will host Houston Astros in Game 1 on Friday.

Price, who went 16-7 in the regular season with a 3.58 ERA, is 0-9 in 10 career postseason starts, and his teams have never won a postseason game that he has started, .

"Awesome to clinch this one", Red Sox reliever Matt Barnes said, "but we've got eight more". Price was shelled by the Yankees in Game 2 of the ALDS on Saturday, lasting just 1 2/3 innings and giving up two home runs in an eventual 6-2 loss. Aaron Hicks missed a two-run homer by about 4 feet on a foul drive down the right-field line.

Porcello needed only 25 pitches to get through New York's lineup the first time and entered the fifth inning with only 40 pitches. Porcello then ended the inning by getting Aaron Hicks on a pop-up on the ninth pitch of the at-bat.

He didn't allow a run until a sacrifice fly in the fifth by Brett Gardner, like Sabathia playing perhaps his last game for the Yankees.
