Umpire Angel Hernandez goes 1-for-4 on replay reviews

Home-field advantage Yankees and their electric fanbase have Red Sox right where they want them

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.

The Red Sox earned a trip to the AL Championship Series with a 4-3 victory in Game 4 of the ALDS, outpitching, outhitting and outmanaging the Yankees across 36 innings. They will face the unsafe Houston Astros in the American League Championship Series, but let's give the clubbies time to wash the beer and champagne out of the uniforms before diving too deeply into that matchup.

Red Sox starter Rick Porcello, meanwhile, was far more effective, giving up only one run and four hits over five innings, striking out one with no walks while throwing 48 of 65 pitches for strikes.

NY had not put a leadoff runner on until Kimbrel, a seven-time All-Star closer, walked Aaron Judge on four pitches leading off the ninth. Kimbrel didn't seem to have his control Tuesday, loading the bases and then forcing in a run to make it 4-2 when he hit Neil Walker with a pitch.

The Boston Red Sox are moving on.

Yankees: CF Aaron Hicks hopes to be back in the lineup after missing Game 2 because of right hamstring tightness, but Boone said it was unclear if the leg might need another day to deal.

Facebook reveals more details about recent hack that affected 30 million accounts
Facebook says it has since fixed the flaw but it had to also reset the access tokens of around 90 million users post the breach. At that point, Facebook had started investigating the issue, so it wasn't exactly sure which users had actually been impacted.

In overseeing the Red Sox' first successful attempt to win a postseason series since 2013, the rookie manager made the biggest, boldest and best moves. Jonathan Holder allowed one run in two innings, making him New York's most effective pitcher in the game. The Red Sox are looking to win their 12th American League pennant. And he squarely hit Brock Holt's bat, and the result was a two-run homer in the ninth that gave Holt the first cycle in postseason history. "Both games in Boston were good games, but we come here to win".

Better late: Aaron Boone comes out to take the ball from Yankees starter Luis Severino in the fourth inning of Game 4 of the American League Division Series. Kinsler, who came maybe 15 feet away from a grand slam in the first inning, gave the Red Sox a 2-0 lead in the third on a crushed double to left just over the glove of Gardner. It was a much-needed display of offensive prowess from the catcher, who became the proverbial whipping boy of Yankees fans after batting just.186 during the regular season. "That's it", Price said after his ALDS start.

New York's bullpen has allowed one run in 10 innings, led by Dellin Betances, Zach Britton and Aroldis Chapman.

All that changed in 2004, when Mariano Rivera was finally unable to close out the pesky Red Sox and they rallied for an unprecedented comeback from a 3-0 deficit to win the ALCS. Four inherited runners were stranded in Game 2, the only other game Sox relievers had inherited runners.

"No, I didn't envision myself getting into the playoffs in this role", he said.
