"He left something there for me and I was able to hit it well", Sanchez said.
Despite having a 5.57 ERA in the second half of the season and throwing four-plus innings in the wild-card game, Yankees RHP Luis Severino is confident he can give NY a 2-1 series lead over the Boston Red Sox in Game 3 of the ALDS on Monday. The Yankees have certainly victimized other pitchers this season, but an inordinate number of them, nine in the regular season and two more Saturday night, have come against Price, in just 17 1/3 innings combined. "You know he's capable of that".
Eovaldi was 3-3 with a 3.33 in 11 starts and one relief appearance for the Red Sox, who acquired him from Tampa Bay in July. They hit home runs - tons of them. "You know, just after we won Game 1 to go out there and have that opportunity to go up 2-0".
The Red Sox say they are not anxious.
The best-of-five series is tied 1-1.
Masahiro Tanaka got the win while David Price was playoff David Price. She typed "Tonight @ElGarySanchez became the first #Yankees catcher to hit two home runs in a postseason game since Gampa did it in Game 7 of the 1956 #WorldSeries". Sanchez's second homer was in same direction but sailed clean out of the park, onto Lansdowne Street.
"No excuses. I just didn't get it done". "But a homer is a homer". I know physically he's fine and we know where we're going.
With every bat that met ball was done so with alarming velocity, Price lasted just 1.2 innings and took the loss in an atmosphere squelching 6-2 defeat to the hated New York Yankees. Price then walked back-to-back batters with two outs and gave up Andrew McCutchen's RBI single on what could be his last pitch in a Red Sox uniform.
The 2012 AL Cy Young Award victor - and two-time runner up for the award - Price signed a seven-year, $217 million deal to come to Boston as a free agent before the 2016 season and has pitched like an ace in the regular season.
The Red Sox are going with their best matchup in Game 3. Red Sox fans' worst fears were realized in the form of a 1.2 inning start.
Joe Kelly doused the Price flames with 2.1 innings of one-hit relief and Ryan Brasier didn't allow a hit in his one inning on the mound.
"I said it past year and I'll say it again: I want to win".
Price said he lacked command on a few critical pitches and the Yankees took advantage.
"Yeah, but if I lose the entire playoffs and we win a World Series, I'll take that". Until October, when more often than not, he's turned into a pumpkin.
Xander Bogaerts and J.D. Martinez have been arguably the Red Sox' most productive players through two games. Two of the K's came after an Eduardo Nunez throwing error and a walk and at the expense of Giancarlo Stanton and Gary Sanchez on 97 miles per hour heaters up in the strike zone. "We'll know a little bit more after all his rounds of whatever, steam and all that stuff he goes on, and then we'll talk to (team trainer Brad Pearson) and go from there".
Buehler walked Nick Markakis on four pitches to open the bottom of the second, a harbinger of things to come.
After struggling badly in Game 1, several Boston relievers settled down in their second stab at the Yanks. "We just have to go out there and keep playing our game, and see what happens".
