It's just what they wanted--the renewal of a rich regular season rivalry in the postseason. Smile

The series gets underway today in Boston.

The Red Sox have beaten the Yankees in Game 1, 5-4, played at Fenway Park. They jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first inning off New York's J.A. Happ and never looked back. Chris Sale notched the win for Boston.

And the Yankees bounced back with a Game 2 win, 6-2, to tie the series. Masahiro Tanaka beat David Price, the Red Sox' perennial postseason struggler, and the scene now shifts to New York.

As the series moved to Yankee Stadium, Boston won Game 3, shoving New York all over the field throughout, and eventually prevailing, 16-1. Bronx cheers all around!

Yankees starting pitcher Luis Severino arrived late for warm-ups because, reportedly, he didn't know the official starting time for the game! Rolling Eyes Severino was knocked out of the box early, taking the loss, as (former Dodger) Nathan Eovaldi pitched seven strong innings for the Red Sox.

And despite the blowout, some history was made.

Yankees catcher/OC native Austine Romine became just the second position player to take the mound in a postseason game. What was even more significant about this game was the fact that Red Sox second baseman Brock Holt hit for the cycle, the first time such a feat has been accomplished in a playoff game (congratulations to him!). It's hard to imagine what more could have gone wrong for the NYY in what could be their next-to-last home game of 20-18.

The Sox are now up two games to one, and can clinch the ALDS with a win in Game 4.

And we're down to four teams left!

The Red Sox eliminated the Yankees in Game 4 at Yankee Stadium, CC Sabathia took the loss for New York, as Rick Porcello earned the W for Boston, which now moves on to play Houston in the ALCS!

Congratulations! (And I guess I'm the only one posting in this thread!)

No, I'll post too, lol. Not very much competition for the Red Sox. They were much deeper than the Yankees and everyone knew it. Great game for Brock Holt - also the way they really showed no mercy in Yankee Stadium.
