Red Sox overhaul lineup before Game 3

BOSTON MA.- OCTOBER 3 Boston Red Sox second baseman Brock Holt bunts as the Red Sox practice prior to the ALDS at Fenway Park

And then, perhaps he'll re-gain value throughout Red Sox Nation.

One issue: The notion of "momentum" inside a short Major League Baseball postseason series does not exist, or at least seems impossible to identify with any evidence beyond the anecdotal. "This is going to be a little crazier for this Boston game, for sure". He also did so on April 11 in an early-season game at Fenway Park.

The Red Sox will hand the ball to Nathan Eovaldi in Game 3 of the American League Division Series on Monday night. Before we watch what will happen over the next few days, let's look back at the players - the stars and the surprises - who have worn the hero capes in this short, but intense, playoff rivalry. The Yankees have certainly victimized other pitchers this season, but an inordinate number of home runs, nine in the regular season and two more Saturday night, have come against Price, in just 17 ⅓ innings combined.

Price was yanked off the mound after logging just 1 2/3 innings; per Evan Drellich of NBC Sports Boston, it was the first outing of his career during which he failed to record even one strikeout.

Severino is scheduled to start Monday in Game 3 of the Yankees vs.

But Sanchez smashed a three-run homer out of the ballpark off Red Sox reliever Eduardo Rodriguez in the seventh for his first multi-homer game since May 19 to give the Yankees a 6-1 advantage. And home runs, they play in the postseason. But the 2004 postseason is where he established his reputation as a clutch hitter. "But with the Red Sox in the division, they were running away with it".

It was the longest home run of the postseason - for about five innings. Boston is constructed in a similar fashion, knowing half its games are played in front of Fenway's Green Monster lurking in left field. He wasn't done, though.

Mourinho insisted he wouldn´t be affected by the doubters claiming he has lost control of his club and is destined for the axe. I understand things in the human nature nowadays and in the industry where I work. "So I think it's a ridiculous talk".

"Hicks is good. It was a much harder decision today", the Yankee manager said. David Price still is the wild card for the Boston Red Sox World Series hopes. Roberts made his first appearance in the ALCS in the ninth inning of Game 4, as a pinch-runner for Kevin Millar, who drew a lead-off walk off Yankees closer Mariano Rivera. He posted a 4.77 ERA/4.63 FIP at Fenway Park during the regular season and a 3.86 ERA/3.48 FIP outside of Boston. Bill Mueller smacked a 1-1 pitch back up the middle, chasing home Roberts with the tying run.

Meanwhile, the Red Sox got a run back against Tanaka on Xander Bogaerts's homer to straightaway center field in the fourth, and a second run against reliever Dellin Betances in the seventh.

Roberts scored the tying run in Game 5, too, this time in the eighth inning. He struck out four and walked one. Six innings later, Ortiz ended the game with his RBI single.

The Yankees have not lost in the postseason at Yankee Stadium since 2015. The 28-year-old right-hander, who throws at 97-98 miles per hour, allowed no earned runs in three of four starts this year against the Yankees. Eleven days later, NY won its 22nd World Series title.

The 28-year-old American right-hander became only the second pitcher with so many strikeouts and no walks in a playoff game, following Tom Seaver's 13-strikeout effort for the New York Mets in 1973.

That's what the Yankees will need in order to take a series lead against Boston.
