In the always must win game 3 of the a series, the Yankees sent out arguably their best pitchers in Luis Severino. He only made it three innings before getting pulled after three batters in the fourth with no outs.
In those three innings, Severino got lit up for six runs on seven hits. He finished the game with an 18.00 ERA. For a man who has been the achilles heel for Boston when at home in New York, this was a terrible outing.
Red Sox starter Nathan Eovaldi went seven strong innings recording five strikeouts. He gave up one single run on five hits.
Boston bats woke up and crushed seven runs in the fourth inning. They scored 16 runs on 18 hits and didn’t even hit a home run until Brock Holt smashed one in the 9th inning.
Yankees bats took the night off with the exception of Stanton who managed to grab two hits with both being singles. There weren’t a lot of baserunners or opportunities for the evil empire in this game. It’s not like the continued to leave men on base all night. There were only five all night.
Going into this series all the talk was about how the Red Sox bullpen couldn’t hang. This game had the exact opposite effect as the Yankee bullpen continued to get rocked after Severino. The Yankees bullpen combined for 10 runs on 11 hits.
