  • Red Sox Troll Yankees By Playing

New York Yankees fans probably aren't too happy with the folks in charge of Major League Baseball's official Twitter account.

"We're ready for another shot", Red Sox pitcher Rick Porcello said. As far as trolls go, it was pretty vicious. A year after losing to Houston in a four-game ALDS, they will open the best-of-seven matchup against the 103-win Astros on Saturday night at Fenway Park.

Those hits came a night after Brock Holt and Rafael Devers helped the Red Sox roll to a 16-1 rout in Game 3.

"Awesome to clinch this one", Red Sox reliever Matt Barnes said, "but we've got eight more". Steve Pearce sliced a cutter into right-centre to put runners at the corners and Martinez hit a third-inning sacrifice fly for second straight night, giving him six RBIs in the series.

He called the balls and strikes last night, leading to Yankees starter CC Sabathia questioning Hernandez' ability after the lefty allowed three runs in three innings before getting pulled.


The Red Sox made it 4-0 when Vazquez lined a 2-1 fastball into the right field seats off Zach Britton. Kinsler made it 2-0 with a double over Gardner's head in left, and Nunez made it 3-0 with a single to left.

David Price will indeed start again for the Boston Red Sox this postseason.

Boston recorded its fourth straight postseason win in NY. "And Aaron, he's one of our resident deejays, so he's got a pretty extensive playlist", NY manager Aaron Boone said afterward. "I don't think the most nervous game or something like that, but I think the final outs of that game, with guys on base and Gary Sanchez hit that ball up and the air and I'm like, 'Oh my God.' Then you've got (Andrew Benintendi who) was going slowly back to the wall and I'm like, 'Stop going back!"

"He's absolutely bad", Sabathia said.

A night after three of his calls at first base were reversed on video reviews, Angel Hernandez was the plate umpire. Major League Baseball declined comment, spokesman Mike Teevan said.
