Rick Porcello Fires Back After CC Sabathia Criticizes Umpire Angel Hernandez

Red Sox hold off Yanks in Game 4, face Astros in ALCS Red Sox Name Starters for Games 1 and 2 of ALCS

The Astros won two out of three at Fenway in early September.

Well, the Red Sox remembered that move and had some fun with it... while also enjoying some champagne. The Red Sox and Patriots will go head to head for ratings Sunday night when the Sox host Game 2 of the ALCS against the Astros on TBS just after 7 p.m. before the Patriots host the Chiefs on NBC's "Sunday Night Football" at 8:20.

Amid all the regular drama that comes when the Yankees and the Red Sox meet up, a major source of attention came in the form of one of the series' umpires, Angel Hernandez. The Yankees fail to reach the ALCS after falling just shy of reaching the World Series previous year.

Didi Gregorius singled and Giancarlo Stanton struck out, Luke Voit walked on four pitches, and Kimbrel hit Neil Walker on a leg with a next pitch, forcing in a run that made it 4-2.

Sabathia said he thinks there should be a way to remove an umpire from other games in a series after having a poor performance.

A Yankee Stadium crowd of 49,641 wondered and the Red Sox paused as they watched from the infield in suspended celebration, fixated on the center-field video board. This time it was Rick Porcello, who spun five innings of one-run ball, four-hit ball.

And, after 100 regular-season wins, a thrilling Wild Card Game victory, and a insane ALDS, the Yankees end with two straight losses that truncate their season one round short of last year, and two rounds short of the ultimate goal - so there's nothing left to do but wait until next year.

- John Farrell was sacked from his job as the Red Sox manager nearly exactly one year ago and now he's offering analysis on his former team for ESPN.

Usually when "New York, New York" plays at Yankee Stadium, it means the Yankees won. "He was awful at first base". Steve Pearce sliced a cutter into right-center to put runners at the corners and Martinez hit a third-inning sacrifice fly for second straight night, giving him six RBIs in the series. Perhaps the only person who had a worse Game 3 than Boone or Severino was umpire Angel Hernandez.

"I told [Holt] it's a tough league", Cora said with a grin before Game 4.
