"We felt the matchup was good for him".
"At one point of the playoffs, he was going to start, regardless if it was Game 3 or 4". The only time they scored more runs in the postseason was a 23-7 win over Cleveland in 1999.
TBS reported Severino began warming up only 10 minutes before the game, and he certainly looked out of sorts from the start in misty weather. It was Friday night, moments before the opening game of the American League Division Series and a couple of hours before Porcello-to his surprise and most everyone else's-would be summoned to pitch.
"The Yankees" bullpen is one of the best in baseball.
Obviously, the stakes could not be much higher for Porcello when he starts.
If the Yankees do win Game 3, it is very likely the Red Sox throw Chris Sale out on the mound to start Game 4 in an effort to avoid elimination. The problem occurred in the third inning - not in the first inning. He singled off Severino to lead off the fourth inning - the pivotal frame that would see the Red Sox send 11 batters to the plate, score seven runs and lead to inevitable and painful scrutiny of Boone's pitching choices - then smashed a two-run triple off reliever Chad Green later the same inning.

It's unclear what Minnesota wanted in return for the 29-year-old Butler, but Miami felt the Timberwolves' asking price wasn't worth it for him.
Luis Severino lasted just three-plus innings and allows six runs in disappointing ALDS Game 3 start for Yankees.
Did they want to give him another days rest and move up Nathan Eovaldi? "I was just trying to use their aggressiveness against them and just get some quick outs". But that's what took place Monday night at Yankee Stadium. "Again, I feel like the key to that is working ahead and staying ahead and not really giving them the free bases and little things like that". "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. "When we do that, we have success, and that's what we're going to try to do tomorrow", Cora added Sunday. "If you hear that from Yankees staff or something like that, maybe you can believe it, but I don't know where you get that from".
Surely a player has hit for the cycle in the playoffs before, right? "So that's a key".
"This fan base I feel like absolutely connected with kind of this new generation of Yankee player, this young corps that has developed", Boone said.
Though Severino acknowledged he struggled with the command of his fastball, he, too, said he completed his normal pregame routine and knew what time the game started.
