The New York Yankees tried to make a late 9th inning rally but it wasn’t enough as they fell to their arch-rivals, the Boston Red Sox 4-3 at Yankee Stadium. With the loss, the Yankees were eliminated from the postseason and the Red Sox move on to play the defending World Series champion Houston Astros in the American League Championship. Even worse, the Yankees had to watch the Red Sox celebrate on their home turf.
Yanks may want to invest in some starting pitching and guys that can hit for average, instead of feast or famine home run hitters.
The New York Yankees were absolutely clubbed by the Boston Red Sox last night 16-1 in Game 3 of the American League Divisional Series. Starter Luis Severino got hit early and often and Yankee fans found their beloved bombers out of the game nearly before it had even started. Adding insult to injury, the Yankees had to use their backup catcher as a late inning pitcher and Brock Holt of the Red Sox became the first player in Major League Baseball history to hit a cycle in the postseason.
Game 4 is tonight at Yankee Stadium in the best 3 out of 5 series. Hopefully, the Yankees put up a better fight tonight.

On a day where the New York Yankees broke the single season record for the most home runs in a season by a team, a Boston Red Sox fan threw the home run ball of Giancarlo Stanton from the top of the Green Monster at Fenway Park and actually hit Stanton as he was rounding the bases. Stanton, realizing what happened, gave the fan a half-hearted salute. Whether the fan saw it or not is unknown, as security was escorting him out for his actions.
The New York Yankees blew a 4-1 lead in the bottom of the 9th inning last night and proceeded to lose 5-4 in the 10th inning resulting in a 4 game sweep of the Bronx Bombers for the Boston Red Sox. The sweep puts the Yankees 9 1/2 games out of first place and in dangerous position to end up as a wild card team in the post-season.
A four game series starting tonight with the New York Yankees trailing the Boston Red Sox 5 1/2 games in the standings. It’s a chance for the Yankees to either gain ground or dig a deeper hole for the American League East pennant.
Should be some serious fireworks!
Three game series between storied rivals: the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees; perhaps the two best teams currently in baseball not named the Astros. Game starts at 7pm EST from Yankee Stadium..
