Eovaldi to start Game 3 instead of Porcello

David Price Booed Mercilously by Boston Fans After Another Playoff Failure Sanchez, Judge power Yankees past Red Sox 6-2 to even ALDS

Red Sox starter David Price extended a long history of postseason struggles in Game 2 of the ALDS on Saturday, when he couldn't escape the second inning in the Yankees' series-evening 6-2 win. His presence evoked one of the unique aspects of a winner-take-all postseason game: a starting pitcher on standby to enter in relief.

Unfortunately for the Red Sox, they were forced to pitch Rick Porcello on Friday night in an effort to hold off the Yankees and get the victory in Game 1.

Monday's Game 3 of the ALDS was obviously the biggest game of the Yankees season.

He has been. Back in the day he was also armed with 97-mph gas; now he come after the Red Sox with grit and guile, with cutters and sliders, with the accumulated cunning of time and age. Masahiro Tanaka picked up the win as he allowed one earned run on three hits with four strikeouts and one walk over five innings.

And it almost happened that way.

Sanchez struck out on the next pitch, a 97 miles per hour fastball.

Price dropped to 2-9 lifetime in the postseason. Ryan Brasier, Brandon Workman, and Heath Hembree all had scoreless appearances. The Yankees need Sabathia to reach back to 2011 or so, figure out a way to halt a Sox offense that, Monday, was a full-on locomotive. But lefty Zach Britton and closer Aroldis Chapman secured the final six outs without incident, and the Yankees had the equalizing win.

Yankees players were ready for familiar sounds when the series resume.

"I just talked to him and told him just be accountable. And Aaron, he's one of our resident deejays, so he's got a pretty extensive playlist", NY manager Aaron Boone said later in the day at Yankee Stadium, a smirk filling his face. He had been open with the media in recent weeks, perhaps to a fault, about how important this October would be to the mission of redirecting the narrative arc of his career.

Would they want to start their best pitcher in Chris Sale, in an effort to avoid elimination?

Severino, who pitched into the fourth, began to run into serious trouble in the third inning, when the Red Sox followed a couple of base hits with a sacrifice fly and a fielder's choice.

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

With his two-home run night, Sanchez joined Yogi Berra as the only other Yankees catcher to hit multiple homers in a playoff game. The Yankees left five runners on base and went 0-for-4 with runners in scoring position. "But with the Red Sox in the division, they were running away with it".

Aaron Judge walked past Boston's Fenway Park clubhouse early Sunday morning, Frank Sinatra's rendition of "New York, New York" blaring from a boom box atop the wheelie bag he was pulling with his left hand.

But it will be a long few days - at least - until he pitches again, and a long winter should that second chance to redeem his 2018 never come.
