Hernandez was overruled on 3-of-4 video reviews of his decisions at first base during Boston's 16-1 rout of the New York Yankees on Monday night. Boston acquired him from Tampa Bay in July and the hard-throwing righty compiled a 1.93 ERA in four starts against NY this season - three with the Red Sox. "I don't think it's really quite settled in yet".
It's nearly a shame we're gonna have to wait until 2019 for the next Red Sox-Yankees tilt, and that Sabathia, who is a free agent this winter and indicated he would retire if the Yankees won the World Series, may not even be part of it.
Stanton then singled to put runners at the corners, and Gregorius grounded to Holt.
Former Yankee Nathan Eovaldi (1-0) shined in his first career postseason start, allowing one run on five hits in seven innings. The season matchups included a four-game series in Houston and a three-game series in NY.
"I don't know where he got that, but I didn't say [anything] about [being] hurt", Severino said. Christian Vazquez started at catcher over Sandy Leon. Mitch Moreland was 1-for-3 and scored a run. Benintendi's stolen base was in something of a gray area.
"We figured we would use some starters at times, you can do that with some of the time", Dombrowski said.

Alisson helped Roma reach the Champions League semi-finals last season and is the second-most expensive goalkeeper in history. Liverpool's Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson Becker, Frenchman Karim Benzema and Edinson Cavani completes the five-man list.
Dent previously threw out the ceremonial first pitch ahead of Game 7 of the AL Championship Series in 2004.
Umpire Angel Hernandez sued Major League Baseball in July 2017, alleging race discrimination and citing his lack of World Series assignments and baseball not promoting him to crew chief.
"When Dustin brought it up, I said, "Well, they know it happened, '" Cora told reporters". "He was bad at first base [in Game 3]".
Pitching on 11 days' rest and perhaps for the final time in pinstripes, Sabathia escaped a bases-loaded jam in the first when Kinsler hit an inning-ending flyout to Gardner in front of the left-field wall.
Boone and the Yankees should have a very short leash with Sabathia tonight.
The Red Sox, Yankees and baseball fans will see plenty of Hernandez on Tuesday night, when he's scheduled to work the plate in Game 4. Sandy Leon had caught 32 of the righty's 33 regular-season starts, with Blake Swihart taking care of the other.
Yankees: CF Aaron Hicks remained out of the lineup after missing Game 2 with tightness in his right hamstring, which forced him from the series opener Friday.
