Eovaldi to start Game 3 instead of Porcello

Here's Aaron Judge walking past the Red Sox clubhouse on his way to the bus.

"It's a good song". But, against the Yankees and on the postseason stage, Price's mental toughness is what got him yanked more than his physical ability and talent. Suddenly, the Yankees looked on the way to a Game 4 with their season on the line.

In what seemed like a wildly unpredictable Game 3 of the American League Division Series, the moments leading up to the showdown between the Red Sox and Yankees shouldn't have come as a surprise. At Fenway Park, however, he is 0-2 with a 7.59 ERA.

"Maybe my wife cooks better food here", he said.

The Yankees turn to righthander Luis Severino, who helped NY defeat Oakland in the American League wild card game.

NY is 19-9 in the postseason at new Yankee Stadium, where boisterous Bronx crowds try to intimidate. He popped 31 homers for Boston in 2003 and followed that up with a 41-homer, 139-RBI, 145-OPS+ season in 2004 (he finished fourth in the AL MVP voting, which was announced after the postseason). He realized the suckitude of David Price.

"Where I was at the start of the season with the Rays, we had good things going over there", Eovaldi said. "Every single pitch they're locked in". The ugly totals: 10 batters faced, three hits, two walks, two home runs, only five outs. Every other Boston player was greeted with boos.

"No, no. He's one of our starters", Red Sox Manager Alex Cora said when that question was posed. David Price could join the bullpen after his early flameout in Game 2, since the left-hander lasted a mere 10 batters in a 6-2 loss.

"All empires fall sooner or later", then-Red Sox president Larry Lucchino said that night. If the series goes the distance he'd be scheduled to get the ball for Game 5 back here next Thursday.

Los Angeles was denied its second straight sweep in the NLDS, having chased Arizona past year.

"I would say I just made the pitch right in the middle", Rodriguez said. Signed to a seven-year $217 million before the 2016 season - which made him the highest-paid pitcher in baseball - he has alternated between brilliant and very bad, with most of the latter example coming in his biggest starts. "But with the Red Sox in the division, they were running away with it".

In all, Price was charged with three runs on three hits and two walks in 1 2/3 innings - the shortest playoff start of his career, and tied with Roger Clemens for the shortest in Red Sox postseason history. The 28-year-old right-hander, who throws at 97-98 miles per hour, allowed no earned runs in three of four starts this year against the Yankees.

His goal is to keep bats and fans quiet.

"Trying to keep the ball in the ballpark, try and get quick outs and try not to let the crowd get too insane and get behind them and get them going", Eovaldi said of his Stadium strategy earlier this year.

Should the Red Sox advance to the American League Championship Series, Price likely will slot back into the No. 2 spot in Boston's rotation.

"Just a monster night", Yankees manager Aaron Boone said.

Yankees players were ready for familiar sounds when the series resume. "They were pretty loud for that Oakland game".

The three-run moonshot broke the game wide open, making it 6-1.

Red Sox closer Craig Kimbrel tossed a football with pitching coach Dana LeVangie before throwing a baseball in the outfield.

Perhaps more notably, Sanchez brought two more Yankees home with him to extend the lead to 6-1, a margin that was going to be easily insurmountable.
