The Yankees' second batter of the game, Judge, crushed a home run to left-center field, at estimated 445 feet - Judge's third homer in three games this postseason. Tanaka was very good, surrendering just one run in five innings of work. "Tough place to play". "You know you can protect guys".

Sanchez followed with another solo blast atop the left-field wall in the second inning.

"One of our overwhelming strengths is our bullpen, and when you get into these postseason games, especially when you have some off-days sprinkled in, you don't worry as much about workload", Boone said.

Aaron Judge on Saturday night strolled along the Fenway Park concourse with a speaker blaring "New York, New York", the anthem played after every game at Yankee Stadium.

"I really feel strongly that 90, 95 percent of the stuff we're seeing was really impactful behind the plate", Boone said. "There's nothing like that atmosphere".

It's not a coincidence that the Yankees have already smashed four home runs in two games this series.

Outside of Craig Kimbrel, Alex Cora has nobody he can trust in that 'pen and the Yankees will be licking their chops if they can get David Price's pitch count up in Game 2. He just kept stepping out.

-Judge has homered in all three of the Yankees' games this postseason, but he's not buying too much into a breakout: "I'm just trying to have quality at-bats, and not try to do too much". "Maybe I can tell you tomorrow". Price could have addressed the media in the cramped clubhouse underneath the stands at Fenway Park, answered a few question in hushed tones, but it made sense for him to give a more public assessment of his performance. "It's an honor to me". We all know he's capable of that.

The Yankees have won their last seven playoff games at home - the wild-card game last week and all six postseason games previous year.

It took all of 42 pitches in 1.2 innings for the Boston faithful to boo their No. 2 starter off the mound and swing the momentum back New York's way.

Sanchez then connected off Price to lead off the second, a rocket into the second row of the Green Monster seats.

-Tanaka was lights-out last October, and that experience was a boost for him heading into tonight: "Yeah, I do think the experience in the playoffs a year ago helped me, and I think it actually helped me during the regular season as well". Leadoff hitter Mookie Betts is just 1 for 7 with a walk, a run and two strikeouts, while Andrew Benintendi also went hitless Saturday. Signed to a seven-year, $217 million contract before the 2016 season - which made him the highest-paid pitcher in baseball - he has alternated between brilliant and terrible, with most of the latter instances coming in his biggest starts. You get the ball and have to perform.

At Houston, Astros starting pitcher Gerrit Cole struck out 12 Cleveland batters with no walks while scattering only three hits over seven innings. "Obviously that was a big at-bat and just kind of setting things up again, and adding on a little bit there early". They needed him to go twice through the lineup and get out of there with a lead, and that he did. It appears they'll turn to Porcello, though, as Eovaldi suggested he's lined up for Game 4, Rob Bradford of WEEI tweets. "It's a new opportunity to make an impact".
