Gary Sanchez lifts New York Yankees with 479-foot moonshot

Gary Sanchez lifts New York Yankees with 479-foot moonshot

Signed to a seven-year, $217 million contract before the 2016 season - which made him the highest-paid pitcher in baseball - he has alternated between brilliant and bad, with most of the latter instances coming in his biggest starts. The Red Sox are a +168 underdog, while the total is set at 8.5 runs. Hicks left Game 1 of the ALDS on Friday night with a tight hamstring and didn't play in Game 2 on Saturday night.

And now despite a stellar career in the regular season, you have to wonder if the left-hander will ever win a playoff game before retirement beckons.

"That's kind of what we've been waiting for to some degree", Yankees Manager Aaron Boone said of Sanchez, who struggled with injuries and inconsistency this season, "where he can take over a game on offense". Now back at home, will NY win again tonight to grab the lead in the series and pull within one win of taking the series?

The bombing began nearly from the outset.

NY starts Luis Severino in Game 3, followed by CC Sabathia. The former Red Sox infielder was there in the flesh, sitting on the bench in the visitor's dugout, helping guide the Houston Astros through the Bronx and into the World Series.

Joe Kelly pitched well in relief, tossing 2 1/3 innings of scoreless ball after replacing Price. Enough damage had already been done, given a dormant edition of the Red Sox offence had shown up for Game 2.

David Price added another chapter to his novel of postseason failures as the Red Sox dropped Game 2 of the ALDS to the Yankees 6-2 Saturday night at Fenway Park.

In their long and storied histories as iconic franchises in Major League Baseball, the Yankees and Red Sox have squared off against each other 2,215 times. No one saw it land as the belt easily cleared the Green Monster in left field and was clocked at 479 feet. For one thing, postseason series vary in length by nature, and it could be a series-sweeping team like this year's Brewers just had so much darn momentum over the Rockies that they would've kept on winning ad infinitum. "And Aaron, he's one of our resident deejays, so he's got a pretty extensive playlist", NY manager Aaron Boone said later in the day at Yankee Stadium, a smirk filling his face. That home run against David Price was nearly a reminder. For one, that was the first year of the current postseason format, in which two Wild Card teams per league play for entry into the proper playoffs.

"We expect to go out there and win tomorrow and the next day", Red Sox reliever Matt Barnes said. The ugly totals: 10 batters faced, three hits, two walks, two home runs, only five outs. Gleyber Torres finished 1-for-3 with a walk and a run.

However, if this was the case the question becomes how long Sale stays in the game. "So I'm definitely looking forward to that and giving us a chance to win".

Happ, of course, was touted by Yankees faithful as a key to the series.

New York's bullpen has allowed one run in 10 innings, led by Dellin Betances, Zach Britton and Aroldis Chapman. And using him as a reliever must be a tantalizing possibility for the Red Sox, given their thin bullpen and Price's success in a relief role last fall. Perhaps revealingly, it was right here at Fenway. If the series goes the distance he'd be scheduled to get the ball for Game 5 back here next Thursday. Jackie Bradley Jr. ended the contest 1-for-3. He said it. He wants to win a World Series.
