Gleyber Torres hit a slow roller that third baseman Eduardo Nunez charged and threw in a hurry. Steve Pearce played first and had an RBI single in the fourth. As it stands now, the Red Sox have a slight edge, picking up 52% of bets. A year after losing to Houston in a four-game ALDS, they will open the best-of-seven matchup against the 103-win Astros on Saturday night at Fenway Park.

"I don't know too much about them, just they have a good team", joked manager Alex Cora, who was the bench coach for the Astros past year.

Holt completed the cycle with a solo home run off of Yankees catcher Austin Romine, who was on the mound for the final inning, in the ninth. Matt Barnes and Ryan Brasier followed with a ideal inning each to protect a 4-1 lead, and Red Sox ace Chris Sale followed with a 1-2-3 eighth in a rare relief appearance. The season matchups included a four-game series in Houston and a three-game series in NY.

Didi Gregorius singled and Giancarlo Stanton struck out, dropping to 4 for 18 (.222) with no RBIs in the series.

Gary Sanchez came very close to hitting a game-ending grand slam in the bottom of the ninth inning last night.

With the home crowd behind him once again, Severino needs to control the strike zone early, and perhaps get a few more calls on the outside of the plate, than he did against Oakland - to keep his pitch count down. The Red Sox obliterated the Yankees 16-1 in Game 3, which saw them take a 10-0 lead after four innings. Asked whether Boone the broadcaster would have criticized Boone the manager, he smiled and said: "No, absolutely not".

Data for July was revised to show the trade deficit rising to US$50.0 billion, instead of the previously reported US$50.1 billion. Consumers and businesses were the most confident they have been in years with stock market indexes near record highs, it added.

When Boone brought in Zach Britton to start the fourth, Christian Vazquez led off with an opposite-field drive over the short porch in right field for his first career postseason homer.

The possible deciding Game 4 will be played at Yankee Stadium on Tuesday. And Aaron, he's one of our resident deejays, so he's got a pretty extensive playlist, ' Boone said later in the day at Yankee Stadium, a smirk filling his face. I was trying to hit a home run.

Kimbrel was one of two regular Sox relievers - not a converted starter - to allow an earned run in the series, with three in 2 1/3 innings. Entering Monday, Holt was 0-for-8 against the right-hander this season. Brett Gardner walked twice in four plate appearances.

Center fielder Aaron Hicks returned to the starting lineup after missing two games because of a tight right hamstring.

The Boston Red Sox just handed the New York Yankees one of their most embarrassing postseason losses in franchise history. Boone also inserted Neil Walker at third base in place of rookie Miguel Andujar, behind slow-moving lefty CC Sabathia.

"Obviously, you don't expect to hit a home run, but I was trying to". He didn't throw a pitch until 7:32.
