Red Sox hold on in 9th vs. Yankees to advance to ALCS

"It's fantastic that he's getting a job to umpire in these playoff games".

J.D. Martinez and the 108-win Red Sox reached the AL Championship Series for the first time since Boston won the title in 2013.

"I've been talking about them the whole season, so now we go", said Red Sox rookie manager Alex Cora, Houston's bench coach past year.

Those hits came a night after Brock Holt and Rafael Devers helped the Red Sox roll to a 16-1 rout in Game 3. In 1⅔ innings, Price threw 42 pitches (24 strikes), struck out no batters, and gave up three earned runs. "It was tough in this first round for a while, but I think this is a group we have that is pretty special".

It came back to bite him as the Red Sox went on to win Game 3 in NY by 15 runs and then squeaked by the Yankees last night by a single run.

Sale pitched a crucial scoreless inning in relief Tuesday night in the Red Sox's series-clinching win against the Yankees. "I thought Angel Hernandez called a good game", he told reporters, per James Wagner of the New York Times. "He's absolutely awful. He was bad behind the plate today".

Sabathia continued to express his frustration, adding that it was "sad" that Hernandez was chosen as the umpire for playoff games. "He was awful at first base [in Game 3]".

Following the Yankees' win in Game 2 at Fenway Park in Boston, Judge played the Sinatra tune from a boombox while walking past the Red Sox. Both bouts will take place at Fenway Park.

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.

The Red Sox hit.400 with runners in scoring position this series; the Yankees hit.154.
