The New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox may have the most heated rivalry in baseball, but that won't prevent Mookie Betts from showing some common courtesy.
"We're very fortunate to have a guy in (Cora) who is not very far removed from playing the game, which definitely helps", Barnes said. "Our fans are unbelievable, especially in the postseason".
"I didn't know until I finally spoke to Severino that Severino wasn't totally healthy, and they could not afford to stop him from pitching, " Martinez said on the show. The only time they scored more runs in the postseason was a 23-7 win over Cleveland in 1999.
"Trying to keep the ball in the ballpark - try and get quick outs, try not to let the crowd get too insane and get behind them and get them going", he said.
"No, I didn't envision myself getting into the playoffs in this role", he said.
Their ace got booed off the mound, loudly.
"We played a really hard season, we managed to win 100 games and then we get to this point and we just can't finish off a series against the Red Sox".
New York Yankees center fielder Aaron Hicks' pee-until-he plays plan didn't work out like he thought it would. But if you ask the veterans, well, it's a new experience for them, too.
"He's always bad. He's a bad umpire". "I saw Romine was on the mound".
On Severino's night went, as Aaron Boone barreled on in what quickly turned into full disregard of caution or urgency.
"I think it's going to be awesome". "I think the connection that our players and our fans have is a special one, and now you put it in the postseason, and you bring the Red Sox, a rival who was a great team this season, and I think it's going to be electric".
Or did they want to keep it as is seeing he only threw 15 pitches and risk it in their biggest game of the year? NY set a major league record this year for most home runs in a season, but didn't go deep in the two games at Yankee Stadium. "Me watching from afar a year ago, especially in the postseason, you could kind of see that raw intensity connection that the fan base had with the players". "It's not just the same old guard".
Porcello also had one pitch called a ball that had a better than 50 percent chance of being called a strike - and that was a 1-2 pitch to Aaron Hicks with two outs in the fifth inning that had a 70.5 percent chance, according to ESPN's Stats & Information data.
His four hits in six at bats propelled the Sox to the decisive Game 3 victory.
His instincts, based on sound logic and Eovaldi's track record against the Yankees, paid off as Eovaldi completely suppressed the Yankees in Game 3.
"Like I've been saying all along, we're a complete team, and we count on everybody to win games". He wasn't as lucky in the third, allowing three runs on three hits as Boston took the lead for good.
