What Brock Holt and the Red Sox said about history-making cycle

What Brock Holt and the Red Sox said about history-making cycle

"Our fans are wonderful, especially in the postseason".

"You could always get an all-hands-on-deck situation any one of these games that come up", added Boone.

"An embarrassing day", shortstop Didi Gregorius said. Best of seven. They know me. That's what you want from them.

With the stakes at their highest, however, the Yankees never left the yard in two home games versus Boston.

Red Sox manager Alex Cora knows that Stadium magic first-hand; he got an up close and personal look last October as the Houston Astros' bench coach, and vividly remembers the Bronx faithful making Games 3 through 5 of the 2017 ALCS a miserable experience for the visitors.

Whether fatigue or dead-arm played any part in Severino's less than stellar summer, Martinez's supposed declaration of an injury to the Yankees No. 1 pitcher is not only inflammatory if untrue, but insanely underhanded if indeed accurate - considering Severino credited much of his 2017 success to the Hall of Famer. "Last year that place was alive, and it was loud from the get-go".


The part-time utilityman put the finishing touch on a Red Sox blowout, becoming the first player to hit for the cycle in a postseason game as Boston routed the New York Yankees 16-1 on Monday to seize a 2-1 lead in their best-of-five AL Division Series.

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. But if you ask the veterans, well, it's a new experience for them, too. That said, an umpire of Hernandez's experience would seem likely to have worked more in the postseason. "I think our bullpen did a fine job during the postseason". That's just flat-out not OK and I hope whoever threw it gets punished.

"We feel like CC physically is in a good place right now coming off a really good start at the end of the year", said Aaron Boone yesterday.

"I think it's going to be fantastic". Just 'cause you know I'm so nervous.

Perhaps this was some revenge music for the Red Sox, who no doubt enjoyed celebrating on their rival's home field for the second time this season. ALDS Game Five went well a year ago. But the relief corps also came through well enough to send the Red Sox past a fellow 100-win team in the Yankees. "Watching from afar previous year, especially in the postseason, you could kind of see that raw, intense connection that the fan base had with the players, and that created a lot of buzz going into the winter obviously. I know them. It should be fun". No, Sabathia was most annoyed with notably bad umpire Angel Hernandez, who was on home plate duty in the loss. The Yankees celebrated with that song on a boombox carried by Aaron Judge throughout Fenway Park after Game 2. The fans who left early missed a bit of history - Austin Romine became just the second position player to pitch in a post-season game. I need a home run for a cycle.
