CC Sabathia complains about umpiring, Rick Porcello tells him to shut up

TBS analyst Ron Darling raised eyebrows, if not ire, during Game 3 of the Boston Red Sox-New York Yankees playoff series by declaring himself offended at Boston's attempts to tack on more runs while already holding a large lead.

Facing elimination tonight - along with the threat of seeing the Red Sox pop bottles in their stadium for the second time in less than three weeks - the Yanks are sending CC Sabathia to the mound in an attempt to force a fifth game.

During a press conference following the game, Holt said he questioned manager Alex Cora's decision to play him against Yankees starter Luis Severino.

Boosted by noisy fans in their homer-friendly ballpark, the Yankees entered 7-0 at home the past two postseasons - against out-of-division opponents. I didn't expect anybody to say that he was late warming up. But since he had first base Monday night, he'll be behind the plate for Tuesday night's Game 4. Just 'cause you know I'm so nervous.

"I was just trying to use their aggressiveness against them and try and get some quick outs", Eovaldi said. That makes a huge difference, knowing that you're going to be in the game. There were 11 hits given up, two of them home runs, and opponents hit.183 against them.

I mean, usually when stuff like that's going on, you don't really talk about it. I need a homer.' He wasn't shy about it. "Everybody was rooting for him". He hit a home run off a 79 miles per hour Romine slider, according to MLB.com Statcast.

Gary Sanchez fell behind 0-2 in the count, worked it full and sent a drive that had the crowd roaring only for Andrew Benintendi to catch it on the left-field warning track, a few feet short of a game-ending grand slam.

The Yankees, who had many bigger names in their 'pen, had a 4.91 ERA in relief in the series - but most of that was concentrated in a disastrous Game 3.

I knew I needed a home run.

To get on a bullpen mound eight minutes before the scheduled first pitch, I never seen it. I told everyone, Get me up.

But there was Vazquez - he of the.207 batting average and three home runs during the regular season - poking a solo homer into the first row of seats in right field off Zach Britton in the fourth inning to give the Red Sox a 4-0 lead.

Added Rothschild: "I think that's a little bit blown out of proportion". But if things aren't look great the first time through, the bullpen has to be ready to go, specifically the top relievers.
