What happened to the fans at Yankee Stadium Monday night?

Andrew Benintendi lifted Boston with a three-run double in a seven-run fourth inning for Boston.

Brock Holt became the first player in baseball history to hit for the cycle in a postseason game.

It was just the fourth time in a playoff inning that the Red Sox had plated at least seven runs and the second-most runs overall Boston has scored in any playoff contest.

There were four replay challenges in the first four innings - all involving calls by first base umpire Angel Hernandez.

In a 16-1 rout of the Yankees in the Bronx, Holt was the Red Sox' offensive star. Even myself, I think I was a little bit overaggressive. So when Red Sox Manager Alex Cora texted him the night before that he would be getting the start in place of the struggling veteran Ian Kinsler, Holt texted back, "Are you sure?" Steve Pearce's RBI single through the left side and Holt's two-run triple to right against Chad Green were the icing on the cake, as Boston built a 10-0 lead.

Unfortunately for the Red Sox, they were forced to pitch Rick Porcello on Friday night in an effort to hold off the Yankees and get the victory in Game 1. "He's rested, had a good week, and we're going with him".

"I told everyone [in the dugout], 'Get me up". Furthermore, Severino admitted after the game, "I wasn't commanding my stuff", right from the first pitch. "I don't think it's quite settled in yet".

Stanton then singled to put runners at the corners, and Gregorius grounded to Holt.




Within moments, Romine was on the mound for the first time as a professional, thus becoming the first position player since Kansas City's Cliff Pennington in the 2015 ALDS to pitch in a postseason game.

In retrospect, this felt like the last time the Red Sox played a postseason game at Yankee Stadium. "Mitch is available, but he's not 100 percent", Cora said.

However, both Boone and Yankees pitching coach Larry Rothschild said the situation was being overblown.

Yankees: CF Aaron Hicks hopes to be back in the lineup after missing Game 2 because of right hamstring tightness, but Boone said it was unclear if the leg might need another day to deal.

The Red Sox decided with the former in favor of moving up Nathan Eovaldi to start in Game 3 instead of his originally scheduled Game 4 start. The 28-year-old split his season between Tampa Bay and Boston, posting a 3.81 ERA, 3.67 xFIP and 8.19 K/9 in 111 innings pitched this season.

"Trying to keep the ball in the ballpark, try and get quick outs and try not to let the crowd get too insane and get behind them and get them going", Eovaldi said of his Stadium strategy earlier this year.

If bad umpire Angel Hernandez really wants to gain traction for his lawsuit against Major League Baseball, he should probably not make repeated mistakes on the game's biggest stage. He said Monday he definitely wants to play in 2019 - even if it's not for the Yankees.
