The Boston Red Sox will collide with the New York Yankees in game two of the ALDS Saturday night from Fenway Park. That gave Boston's beleaguered bullpen the cushion it needed to stave off New York's late comeback attempt.
And as the tweet from the official Red Sox account says, "It doesn't end at 108". When the rivals went head-to-head in the playoffs for the first time in 1999, NY eliminated Boston in five games before winning the second of three straight championships. Sanchez had an inconsistent season, and he finished with a poor.186 batting average. Boston responded with just five hits against four NY pitchers. Tonight, from the get-go with McCutchen he was very aggressive in the strike zone, you could see the good extension, repeating his delivery, breaking ball was good, changeup was good, he was outstanding for us. Yes, they're two of the better teams in baseball. "We get caught up in the numbers and the playoffs and all that".
"We know how good they are".
"But if I lose the entire playoffs, and we win the World Series, I'll take that". The righty immediately threw a wild pitch to put runners on second and third, and a walk to Brett Gardner loaded the bases with no outs.
"He's solid", Cora said of Happ. "It's the separation obviously that makes hitters uncomfortable". If his starters can't contain Boston's lineup, putting the team in an early hole, it will be an uphill battle.
NY will have J.A. Happ on the mound, as the veteran has a 1.99 ERA in four starts this season against Boston. Sanchez was next to visit the seats above the wall in left, hooking another cut-fastball down and away into the second row to double the NY lead.
On a night when the offense came ready and Chris Sale erased most of the concerns surrounding him, the Red Sox' bullpen almost brought it all down.

The Yankees will counter with Masahiro Tanaka, who has excelled in the postseason.
Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez has had a rough season, hitting just.186 despite 18 home runs.
"It happened. I'm not going to run away from it". He made some mistakes and they took advantage of it. You can Google it now, tomorrow and 100 years from now and it's going to be there.
"To be able to start off the way I did kind of made the transition a lot easier", Pearce told the Toronto Sun.
Boston's much maligned bullpen - a group that walked a tightrope in Friday night's 5-4 victory in Game 1 - was further besmirched by a converted starter the following night.
In National League (NL) action, the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Colorado Rockies 4-0 and the Los Angeles Dodgers cruised past the Atlanta Braves 3-0 to give both teams commanding 2-0 leads in their best-of-five series. "I don't think that's the right thing to do", he said. "He didn't miss that one". Ryan Brasier struck out the side in the fifth and Rodriguez bailed Brandon Workman out of a jam in the sixth before buckling the following frame. Tanaka proved to be a big-game pitcher during the Yankees' 2017 playoff run when he had a 0.90 ERA in three starts.
