Red Sox Name Starters for Games 1 and 2 of ALCS


The rapper appeared on retired Red Sox legend David Ortiz's Instagram story flying her true colors after the Sox beat the Yankees 4-3 on Tuesday to move on to the ALCS, saying that she's a Red Sox fan from birth because it runs in her blood. After the Yankees won Game 2 of the ALDS to even the series, the song was playing as Aaron Judge exited Fenway Park.

Kimbrel, who finished with 42 saves during the regular season, went on to struggle in the bottom of the ninth, allowing two runs on one hit and two walks before closing the door on the Yankees' season. Steve Pearce sliced a cutter into right-centre to put runners at the corners and Martinez hit a third-inning sacrifice fly for second straight night, giving him six RBIs in the series. But the Red Sox were knocked out in the Division Series in 2016 and '17, had not reached the sport's final four since their last title.

Gary Sanchez fell behind 0-2 in the count, worked it full and sent a drive that had the crowd roaring only for Andrew Benintendi to catch it on the left-field warning track, a few feet short of a game-ending grand slam. "He's absolutely bad. He was awful behind the plate today".

Game 4 was generally controversy-free, although Hernandez was behind the plate and didn't exactly have the world's most consistent strike zone for the myriad of arms that took the bump. Four plays at first base were reviewed in the first four innings, and three were overturned. It's wonderful how he's getting a job to umpire in these playoff games.

"Major League Baseball needs to do something about Angel", Martinez said.
