Boston Red Sox vs. New York Yankees 10/8/18, Prediction & Odds

10 October 2018

Oh, and the Bucky Effing Dent game doesn't technically count - that unforgettable tiebreaker contest went down in the history books as Game 163 of the 1978 season - but those other 21 games have produced an impressive number of postseason heroes.

Nobody was on top of their game for the New York Yankees in Game 3 of the ALDS, including starting pitcher Luis Severino, who allowed six runs on seven hits in three innings of work.

The New York Yankees were 6-0 at home in the postseason previous year, and enter Monday's ALDS Game 3 with the AL Wild Card Game win in their pinstriped back pocket.

"This one I'll remember for a long time", Holt told reporters.

Twitter absolutely went off on Hernandez during and after the game and he was actually trending in the US after.

Home-field advantage is a thing in so many ways in an age where teams are tailored to the park they play 81 games in, but Yankee Stadium clearly has another one in the crowd, which has been nothing less than deafening for every postseason pitch over the last two Octobers.

Severino's 10-2 record and 2.74 ERA this season at Yankee Stadium, including seven innings of one-run ball the last time he faced the Sox on September 19, should give him all the confidence needed to put the Yankees up 2-1 in the ALDS. As it stands now, the Red Sox have a slight edge, picking up 52% of bets.

Holt entered the ninth inning needing just a home run to complete the historic feat.

"I don't take it back", Darling said to the New York Post on Tuesday of his remark about Severino's exit.

The Yankees may have the younger team with most of their super stars under team control for years to come while the Red Sox have a narrow to window to win it all. - Holt " Get me up.

The Sox put themselves in put position to close out the series by trouncing the Yankees 16-1 in Game 3 on Monday night. "You don't usually see that", the 58-year-old analyst said on TBS's telecast (via Awful Announcing). "If we stay in the same rhythm coming here playing at home, especially in front of all these fans, just keep the same rhythm and everything going and go in the right direction, we'll be fine".

Holt began the frame with a leadoff single. The 2015 All-Star also doubled home a run in the eighth and finished with five RBIs.

The Boston Red Sox just handed the New York Yankees one of their most embarrassing postseason losses in franchise history. But Holt's replacement, veteran Ian Kinsler, responded with an RBI double and run scored during the three-run third that won the game.

Benintendi has earned a reputation as a Yankee-killer.

Severino looked out of sorts in the outing, but his rushed pregame warmup likely had little to do with it. Rick Porcello is set to pitch for Boston while CC Sabathia will start for the Yankees.

Dent previously threw out the ceremonial first pitch ahead of Game 7 of the AL Championship Series in 2004.

It wasn't a turn of phrase that irked many viewers Monday so much as an apparent return to an informal code that Major League Baseball itself is eager to move past.
