What Alex Cora Expects From Rick Porcello In Game 4 Against Yankees

Boston Red Sox’s Brock Holt center celebrates with Ian Kinsler after hitting a two-run home

Rookie Boston manager Alex Cora was Houston's bench coach last October.

The Red Sox eliminated the Yankees in thrilling fashion Tuesday night in the Bronx and then had some fun in the locker room - with a familiar song blaring over the speakers.

They made that abundantly clear in dominant fashion, beating the Yankees in back-to-back games at Yankee Stadium to officially bring New York's 2018 season to an end. That bridged the gap to Craig Kimbrel in the ninth. Boston ended up winning 10-3, paving the way to the Red Sox's first World Series title since 1918. Game 7 of the 2004 ALCS was a Red Sox rout, you say? NY hadn't gone consecutive games at Yankee Stadium without a home run since April. Luke Voit walked on four pitches, and Kimbrel hit Neil Walker on a leg with his next pitch, forcing in a run. His cycle came in the 1,562nd postseason game in major league history, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. Don't know about you, but after this, my nerves will be ready for another Red Sox-Yankees series in, oh, about 14 years.

"You get a little antsy when a position player is on the mound", Holt said.

One night after Boone, the Yankees manager, had his bullpen moves (and non-moves) scrutinized mercilessly in the NY papers - the consensus being that he was too late in pulling his starter and too passive in deploying his better arms in what would become an ugly 16-1 loss - the Yankees, this time facing elimination, again fell behind in the early innings with the bullpen at rest.

Eduardo Nunez single to left gives Red Sox a 3-0 lead. Cora preferred the matchup of the right-handed Kinsler, rather than the left-handed Holt, to face Yankees lefty CC Sabathia.

Sabathia loaded the bases with two outs in the first inning and escaped with no damage.

Steve Pearce was at first base for the second straight night; Mitch Moreland left Game 2 after hurting his right hamstring while running the bases.

Xander Bogaerts advanced Pearce with a comebacker and, with David Robertson starting to warm up, Sabathia threw a wild pitch on a cross-up with Sanchez.

A night after three of his calls at first base were reversed on video reviews, Angel Hernandez called balls and strikes.
