So will New England's baseball fans see their heroes again this season at Fenway Park? The ugly totals: 10 batters faced, three hits, two walks, two home runs, only five outs.
After broadcasting his show from Fenway Park on Saturday night and watching the Yankees take Game 2 of their ALDS against the Red Sox, Evan Roberts wasted no time sharing his thoughts on the game - he recorded the latest edition of his podcast from inside his auto leaving the ballpark.
"They haven't lost a playoff game (there) in a while", Red Sox Manager Alex Cora said.
"We have to keep them in the ballpark".
"I've got to talk to him", Cora said.
"He left something there for me and I was able to hit it well", Sanchez said. "It's a tough lineup".
The best formula they have in winning this series was splitting in Boston and winning the two games in Yankee Stadium.
Instead, Masahiro Tanaka helped the wild-card Yankees claim the first victory by a road team in a Division Series game this year and gave them a chance to advance to the AL Championship Series with a pair of wins at home, where they are 7-0 over the past two postseasons. The veteran pitcher should know how to work his way out of early struggles.
He realized the suckitude of David Price. That mark was just ahead of the Yankees, who allowed 177. He clobbered a cutter from Boston left-hander David Price and parked it 445 feet away in the seats atop the Green Monster.
"We can't wait. We know our fans are waiting for us to get back home", Judge said. "They make it tough for me". You know you're always going to get that with Gardy.
India vs West Indies
Even before stepping on the green pitch of Rajkot , the Men in Blue were heavily touted to thrash the travelling West Indies side. India condemned West Indies to an innings and 272-run defeat inside three days of the opening Test in Rajkot on Saturday.
This was Price's first career post-season start against the Yankees but far from his first as a pro and it's clear the sight of the Pinstripes make him quake. Right-hander Joe Kelly entered in relief of Price and succeeded in stabilizing the game with 2 1/3 scoreless innings.
Price's postseason troubles are quickly becoming legendary.
Saturday was the only start of Price's career, in the regular season or in the playoffs, in which he did not record a strikeout.
"Monday", Price said matter-of-factly when asked when he could conceivably pitch again. It's unclear if Cora would go that route or save Price for another start in this series.
Has it really been 14 seasons since the Red Sox and Yankees last met in the postseason?
Still, there's the question: Can the Red Sox win the World Series if Price doesn't pitch well? "That's what I'm here for", he said. "That's what I worry about". The first is obviously that Boston's bullpen was alarmingly bad.
His second relief stint in as many games certainly unfolded much more smoothly.
Severino has also fared best with Gary Sanchez behind the plate.
On Saturday night, he simply didn't do it, which just added to his disastrous playoff numbers. I know physically he's fine and we know where we're going.
Here are three things that need to happen in order for the Sox to steal Monday night's game. One is, of course, Aaron (insert your verb of choice) Boone. The Fenway faithful did not hesitate to let their frustration known. I'm looking forward to getting back out there and getting another opportunity... "I mean, this is what it's all about in a lot of ways. That's now begun. To get to play here in this venue is special".
