The second life of Gary Sanchez isn't shocking the Red Sox

Despite having a 5.57 ERA in the second half of the season and throwing four-plus innings in the wild-card game, Yankees RHP Luis Severino is confident he can give NY a 2-1 series lead over the Boston Red Sox in Game 3 of the ALDS on Monday. But after throwing just 42 pitches Saturday, Price could function as a reliever before the series is out. "You know you can protect guys". This season alone, the 33-year-old left-hander is 0-3 with a 10.34 ERA against NY.

Gary Sanchez smashed two home runs and Aaron Judge blasted another to power the New York Yankees over arch-rival Boston 6-2 on Saturday in the Major League Baseball playoffs.

"That's kind of what we've been waiting for to some degree", Yankees Manager Aaron Boone said of Sanchez, who struggled with injuries and inconsistency this season, "where he can take over a game on offense".

Matt Barnes and Xander Bogaerts said they had not seen the video.

While Sanchez had a terrible regular season - plagued by an injured groin, ineffectiveness at the plate and continued questions about whether he was a good enough defender to be an everyday catcher - Boston didn't take him lightly heading into this series. He threw 6 2/3 scoreless innings against them on July 1 and allowed one run in seven innings when he last faced them on September 19.

That's when Sanchez aimed one in the same direction, sending it out of the park and onto Lansdowne Street. "But a homer is a homer". "Me watching from afar previous year, especially in the postseason, you could kind of see that raw intensity connection that the fan base had with the players".

With every bat that met ball was done so with alarming velocity, Price lasted just 1.2 innings and took the loss in an atmosphere squelching 6-2 defeat to the hated New York Yankees.

The 2012 AL Cy Young Award victor - and two-time runner-up for the award - Price signed a seven-year, $217 million deal to come to Boston as a free agent before the 2016 season and has pitched like an ace at times in the regular season. The Bombers had several chances to blow the game open against a shoddy Red Sox bullpen but couldn't get the job done.

As poor as Price has been as a starter in the postseason, he's had a 2.25 ERA in 15 innings out of relief.

"When it's on the line, you just want to perform. That's it", Price said.

Isn't Boston vs. NY technically the World Series? He wants to win and he knows he is certainly capable of getting it done. "I feel like my splitter was way more consistent tonight, and I was able to get the sound mechanics back to be able to get that effective splitter back". Buehler completely lost the ability to hit the strike zone as he walked Newcomb on four pitches, forcing in a run.

Eovaldi has pitched very effectively against the Yankees since joining the Red Sox, turning in eight shutout innings at Fenway Park on August 4 and then not allowing a run and just two hits in six innings at Yankee Stadium Sept. 18. "We started to see him really turn the corner at the end of the season and, I think, kind of get that swagger and that confidence back that he has when he's going so well".

Also of note: Sanchez has six homers off Price and incredibly has done so in just 14 at-bats.

His troubles began with Aaron Judge, the second batter of the game, who crushed a 1-2 cutter 445 feet over the Green Monster in deep left-center. At some point, you are what your record says you are.
