Red Sox beat Yankees, advance to ALCS

On an October night 15 years ago next week, Aaron Boone sent a flyball into the Bronx sky that vanquished the hated Boston Red Sox, sent the New York Yankees to the World Series and ensured that Boone, at the time the Yankees' third baseman, would never have to buy a drink in this town again - a bargain that, unbeknown to any of the involved parties, came with an unspoken caveat and a provisional expiration date. Boston did so with class, pure joy and a hint of pettiness.

Rick Porcello earned his first win in a playoff start, Christian Vazquez hit his first home run since June 26 and Chris Sale pitched out of relief in a bizarro Game 4 win, 4-3, that secured the Red Sox' first playoff series win since 2013.

Confident players were excited about returning to the Big Apple, and Judge even walked past Boston's clubhouse inside Fenway Park early Sunday morning with Frank Sinatra's rendition of "New York, New York" blaring from a boom box.

Dent previously threw out the ceremonial first pitch ahead of Game 7 of the AL Championship Series in 2004.

After beating Oakland in the AL wild-card game, it was a humbling playoff exit for a power-packed Yankees team that added reigning NL MVP Giancarlo Stanton last off-season and hit a major league-record 267 home runs. They were here to win three games and move on.

The DH went 0-for-4 and finished with just one extra-base hit against Boston.

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

By then, the Red Sox appeared in control. The Red Sox produced their fourth seven-run inning in a postseason game and first since Game 1 of the 2007 World Series against the Colorado Rockies. It's also, of course, played at Yankee Stadium after every game.

"It's a good song". Severino was removed with the bases loaded and nobody out, but relievers Lance Lynn and Chad Green quickly let the game get out of hand.

"The first game didn't go our way, but we kept battling, and (Saturday), we started good and then we played good the whole game", Didi Gregorius said.

Severino's 10-2 record and 2.74 ERA this season at Yankee Stadium, including seven innings of one-run ball the last time he faced the Sox on September 19, should give him all the confidence needed to put the Yankees up 2-1 in the ALDS. By the time the inning was over, the Red Sox had a 3-0 lead they never relinquished. "So I'm not going to go out there and compete if I'm not healthy". "I think our bullpen did a fine job during the postseason".

The Red Sox made it 4-0 when Vazquez lined a 2-1 fastball into the right field seats off Zach Britton.

"They've got a great team over there". The only time they scored more runs in the postseason was a 23-7 win over Cleveland in 1999.
