ALDS: Brock Holt, Red Sox take series lead vs. Yankees

Veteran Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia added to the growing criticism of umpire Ángel Hernández Tuesday night after NY lost to the Red Sox in Game 4 of the ALDS.

The Red Sox are 8-1 in their last nine Monday games. "I don't think it's really quite settled in yet".

When Gleyber Torres hit a three-hopper off the mound in the third with the Yankees trailing 3-0, shortstop Xander Bogaerts gloved the ball, continued onto the second-base side of the dirt and threw to first, when Hernandez signalled safe.

Benintendi then went too far, in Darling's eyes, in the seventh inning, with the Red Sox still leading 10-1.

Lynn promptly walked Mookie Betts on four pitches to force home a run that made it 4-0, then gave up a three-run double to Andrew Benintendi. After all, NY hit by far the most home runs of any team in the regular season, and it scored five or more runs in an inning 16 times (per Baseball Reference).

The Red Sox manager benched a player who had just hit for the cycle, started a backstop who hadn't caught Rick Porcello all season, took his dominant starting pitcher out after five innings to leave the game up to his shaky bullpen, and by the end of it all, was on his way to the ALCS.

"I don't know, man", he said. Mitch Moreland was 1-for-3 and scored a run. And, in Game Two, he didn't let Masahiro Tanaka go through the middle of the lineup a third time even though Tanaka had pitched well up to that point.

Following Benintendi's hit, the Red Sox extended the lead on a single to left by Steve Pearce off Chad Green.

"I do need to say this though", the veteran lefty said before letting it fly.

Catcher Gary Sanchez dropped a pitch on a stolen base that set up Boston's first run. Brett Gardner walked twice in four plate appearances.

In the seven games this season, the Astros averaged 2.9 runs per game and the Yankees averaged 3.9 runs per game.

With the season on the line tonight, Boone cannot let Sabathia go through the lineup a third time unless the Yankees have a huge lead.

Facing elimination tonight - along with the threat of seeing the Red Sox pop bottles in their stadium for the second time in less than three weeks - the Yanks are sending CC Sabathia to the mound in an attempt to force a fifth game.

A Cy Young candidate during the first half of the 2018 season, Severino was 10-2 with a 2.74 ERA in 15 starts prior to the Midsummer Classic. "Major League Baseball needs to do something about Angel".
