"Two places that are historic franchises where the fans are definitely rowdy for their home team and against the visiting team", Red Sox reliever Matt Barnes said. Porcello has been more effective on the road than at home this year, which seems to bode well for the Red Sox's current situation. "It's electric. They throw strikes". He is one of the most dominant pitchers of all time before the postseason, but he isn't quite as good when the games matter most.
"Obviously, we know Severino had a good outing in the last game, but we know we're a different team, and we're looking forward to that challenge". Still, without the certainty the Red Sox thought they might have him Steven Wright and/or Eduardo Rodriguez we might see some dice-rolling.
In all, Price was charged with three runs on three hits and two walks in 1 2/3 innings - the shortest playoff start of his career, and tied with Roger Clemens for the shortest in Red Sox postseason history.
"I've got to tell you there's nothing like this season", admitted Sanchez. He did it in the wild-card game when he hit that home run in the bottom of the first inning.
They got a little chase-happy against Masahiro Tanaka on Saturday in Game 2, and they paid the price. "But I know I'm more than capable of winning games as a starter in October".
NY was 6-3 at home vs. Boston this year.

Cora said he and his staff will discuss the bullpen plans on Sunday as they prepare for Game 3. "Stay in the zone". Although Sanchez told ESPN's Buster Olney, postgame, that he didn't think much of it, considering Brasier struck out Sanchez with a 97 miles per hour fastball, Brasier's brashness went unwarranted upon Sanchez's nail in the coffin homer, two frames later. "We like to hear that song sometimes when we win a big game". We trust his stuff. The Yankees, he said, "make it tough for me, and knowing that, you have to go out there and execute pitches in big spots".
Eovaldi has done it against the Yankees several times this year.
The Astros, who beat the Los Angeles Dodgers in last year's World Series, can sweep out the Indians with a victory in game three on Monday in Cleveland. I just didn't break. "I'm trying to do the same thing that I have been doing; stay aggressive and try to get that first-pitch strike out of the way". He's a guy that, when he hits the ball out of the ballpark, he [puts his head down] and runs.
Cleveland's Francisco Lindor opened the scoring in the third inning with a solo homer off a slider from Cole, who joined the Astros in a January trade after five seasons with Pittsburgh. Porcello's only a few days removed from working out of Boston's bullpen, having thrown 15 pitches and picked up a pair of outs in the eighth inning of its Game 1 win Friday.
At Houston, Astros starting pitcher Gerrit Cole struck out 12 Cleveland batters with no walks while scattering only three hits over seven innings.
