Yankees Make Changes to Game 3 Lineup With Aaron Hicks Still Out

Yankees Make Changes to Game 3 Lineup With Aaron Hicks Still Out Yankees Make Changes to Game 3 Lineup With Aaron Hicks Still Out

Last year, it was the Yankees who reached the AL Championship Series before their surprising run ended with a Game 7 loss to the Astros. But the Red Sox escaped one batter later when Gleyber Torres grounded out to Eduardo Nunez at third base. The Yankees immediately challenged and, with a sellout crowd standing and hoping, the out call was upheld after a 63-second review.

The Red Sox decided with the former in favor of moving up Nathan Eovaldi to start in Game 3 instead of his originally scheduled Game 4 start. His first trip through the Boston order produced a series of line-drive outs, plus two singles, a walk and a Red Sox run.

Cora and the Red Sox wouldn't sound off about Judge's musical taste - not that they could hear the famous Kander and Ebb song on Fenway's concourse through thick clubhouse walls after the 6-2 win in Game 2.

After beating Oakland in the AL wild-card game, it was a humbling playoff exit for a power-packed Yankees team that added reigning NL MVP Giancarlo Stanton last offseason and hit a major league-record 267 home runs. The Yankees traded for Boone at the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline, sending Branden Claussen and Charlie Manning and a bit of cash to Cincinnati, and Boone was good not great in the season's final two months.

NY had not put a leadoff runner on until Kimbrel, a seven-time All-Star closer, walked Aaron Judge on four pitches leading off the ninth. It's also a rematch of last year's ALDS matchup, which the Astros won in four games.

Craig Kimbrel somehow, someway, got the save, almost squandering a three-run lead as part of a wild ninth inning.

He finished with five RBI as Boston took a 2-1 series lead against NY.

Sale then entered when the Red Sox took the field.

"I don't know where he got that, but I didn't say [anything] about [being] hurt", Severino said.

The game was pretty much over by the fourth inning, when the Red Sox scored 7 runs, going up 10-0.

It's true. The Yankees won the 1999 ALCS (4-1) and the 2003 ALCS (4-3) and the Red Sox pulled off their epic comeback from down 3-0 to win the 2004 ALCS in seven games. Gary Sanchez crushed a double (are we sure this guy hit.186 this year?), and after an 89-foot infield single by Torres, Brett Gardner brought in Sanchez for the Yankees first run. The 2016 AL Cy Young Award victor entered with a 0-3 in 12 previous postseason appearances, which included four starts.

Red Sox: 1B Mitch Moreland had what Cora called aggressive treatment on his right hamstring, which forced him from Game 2.

He needed 35 pitches to get through two innings and nicked Benintendi on the right shoulder with a slider on his first pitch of the third.
