NY is 8-3 in its last 11 home games versus the Red Sox.
The Red Sox, Yankees and baseball fans will see plenty of Hernandez on Tuesday night, when he's scheduled to work the plate in Game 4. Gleyber Torres hit a slow roller that third baseman Eduardo Nunez charged and threw across the diamond. The Yankees immediately challenged and, with a sellout crowd standing and hoping, the out call was upheld after a 63-second look.
It's true. The Yankees won the 1999 ALCS (4-1) and the 2003 ALCS (4-3) and the Red Sox pulled off their epic comeback from down 3-0 to win the 2004 ALCS in seven games. "Obviously, you don't go into the game expecting to make history or do anything like that, let alone score 16 runs". After all, NY hit by far the most home runs of any team in the regular season, and it scored five or more runs in an inning 16 times (per Baseball Reference). NY with six homers and 28 RBI.
Ortiz finished the seven-game series with 11 RBIs, 12 hits, three triples, a.387 average and 1.199 OPS and was an easy choice for series MVP.
The victory fit the selfless profile of so many that came before it. Manager Alex Cora opened himself to criticism by benching Game 3 hero Brock Holt, who had just hit for the first postseason cycle in history.
"It's unbelievable", adds Didi Gregorius of the Stadium atmosphere.
Every starter had at least one hit for the Red Sox, who piled up 18 in all.

"Yeah, I think that's something that really started previous year, as this fan base absolutely connected with this new young corps that has developed", Boone said.
Houston and Boston split the series in Houston in late May and early June. Aaron Hicks missed a home run by about 4 feet on a foul drive down the right-field line, worked the count full, then popped out to Kinsler to backpedaled from second to short right field.
"We feel like CC physically is in a good place right now coming off a really good start at the end of the year", said Aaron Boone yesterday.

Hernandez and crew chief Mike Winters declined comment after Game 3, in which Hernandez was corrected by replay three times.
Boston scored its initial run on a groundout by Christian Vazquez in the bottom of the second inning.
Xander Bogaerts advanced Pearce with a comebacker and, with David Robertson starting to warm up, Sabathia threw a wild pitch on a cross-up with Sanchez. He popped 31 homers for Boston in 2003 and followed that up with a 41-homer, 139-RBI, 145-OPS+ season in 2004 (he finished fourth in the AL MVP voting, which was announced after the postseason).
Umpire Angel Hernandez sued Major League Baseball in July 2017, alleging race discrimination and citing his lack of World Series assignments and baseball not promoting him to crew chief. There was occasional barking about his decisions, and Benintendi argued after he was called out on a breaking ball with the bases loaded for the final out of the eighth, a pitch that may have been outside.
