In between, the Red Sox pummeled one Yankee pitcher after another in a 16-1 rout in Game 3 of the American League Division Series which Boston now leads 2 games to 1.
Nathan Eovaldi was nothing short of brilliant - one run on five hits over seven innings. He struck out five and didn't walk a batter.
Meanwhile, Yankees starter Luis Severino, who apparently didn't know what time the game was supposed to start and began his warm up routine late, was booed off the mound by the Yankee Stadium "faithful" in the top of the fourth inning. He was charged with six runs on seven hits and a pair of walks.
Boston manager Alex Cora's revamped lineup was clearly up to the task - every starter had at least one hit, led by Holt who became the first player in MLB history to hit for the cycle in the postseason.
The bulk of the damage came in the top of the fourth inning when the Red Sox scored seven times, highlighted by a bases-clearing double by Andrew Benintendi, and a two-run triple by Holt.

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball and radio (WDHA).
