Wikipedia Ensures Angel Hernandez’s Game 3 Disaster Won’t Be Forgotten

"It's part of my story now", Holt said of his health history.

He allowed seven hits and two walks over three-plus innings and exited with the bases loaded and nobody out with his New York Yankees down 3-0 to the Boston Red Sox in the fourth inning. And they understand that.

After that ejection, Kinsler said, "I don't know how, for as many years he's been in the league, that he can be that bad".

Within moments, Romine was on the mound for the first time as a professional, thus becoming the first position player since Kansas City's Cliff Pennington in the 2015 ALDS to pitch in a postseason game. Why not this time? "Mitch is available, but he's not 100 percent", Cora said.

By the same token, the Yankees got emasculated on their home field on Monday night. The game went to extra innings, again, and again Ortiz delivered. "Last year that place was alive, and it was loud from the get-go". "We felt the matchup was good for him".

"This is definitely a different crowd (than 2009-12's postseason runs)", said CC Sabathia.

The Red Sox can clinch a berth in the American League Championship Series against the Houston Astros with a win over the Yankees on Tuesday night.

"Just hoping he could get something started to get through the bottom of the lineup there", Boone explained of the rationale. He came up with two outs and runners on first and second; on the 10th pitch of his at-bat against Esteban Loaiza, Ortiz smacked a single into center, scoring Damon with the winning run. In this case, that guy is very tough against lefties. "Whatever these guys say, I don't know where it comes from". Overall in four starts (one was a tune-up before the season ended), he went 2-0 with a 2.31 ERA and a 0.643 WHIP. They knew before the game we were going this route. But everything seems to be coming up gold for Boston skipper Alex Cora, so we'll see if this latest round of changes continues that trend.

Severino looked out of sorts in the outing, but his rushed pregame warmup likely had little to do with it.

Christian Vazquez got the start, his second straight start over Sandy Leon.

Vazquez hadn't caught Rick Porcello since the 2017 postseason. "Really, really good behind the plate with pitches, blocking balls, throwing people out, sticking with the game plan defensively. We feel comfortable with him".

Cora noted managers try to put pressure on umpires, but ultimately they will call the game the way they see it regardless. Tzu-Wei Lin is now working out with the team in case Moreland needs to be replaced on the roster.

Nathan Eovaldi, who threw 97 pitches in seven strong innings on Monday, is unlikely to pitch again this series, though Cora wouldn't rule it out. In Game 7, Ortiz crushed a two-run homer in the first inning off Kevin Brown, giving the Red Sox a 2-0 lead in a game they would never trail and eventually won 10-3.

What would first-base umpire Angel Hernandez have to say for himself after not one, not two, not three, but four of his safe/out calls were challenged Monday night, and not one, not two, but three of them were overturned following replay reviews?
