Red Sox 16, Yankees 1: Eovaldis brilliance, Holts cycle power Boston

Dellin Betances celebrates with Gary Sanchez after getting out of the seventh inning in the Yankees' 6-2 win in Game 2 of the ALDS Saturday night Lo Duca: Can the Yankees Get to Boston’s Bullpen Early in Game 3?

Wake up the Bambino and ask him to sign the deed transfer, because Yankee Stadium has been annexed by Boston.

Well, that question is a lot more complicated than one might think.

The Red Sox pounded out 18 hits, led by Brock Holt, who hit for the cycle - the first in postseason history - and drove in five runs. Nathan Eovaldi tossed seven innings and struck out five. Then, at the end of a 16-1 trouncing, here was Boston's own No. 2 - a kid who grew up idolizing Derek Jeter and has become a complete shortstop himself - politely mimicking Jeets' signature move. The 108-win team never lost more than three games in a row.

There were 329 pitches thrown by nine pitchers on Monday night, and it was Eovaldi who threw the 25 hardest.

Brees breaks NFL's all-time passing yards record
Former Saints receiver Devery Henderson, who caught the pass on which Brees broke Unitas' mark, attended Monday night's game. Of course, the prolific passer has sometimes been underrated when compared to his peers like Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers.

Expanded video review in the major leagues began in 2014. "Alex had already told me ahead of time to prepare as if I'm going to start Game 3 but expect Game 4 - but given the fact that we faced the Yankees so many times, if you're not prepared for them now, you're in trouble, so I feel like I'm prepared for them". In the third, Devers gave the Red Sox a 3-0 lead with an RBI groundout.

Did Yankees Manager Aaron Boone have a satisfactory explanation for leaving starting pitcher Luis Severino in a pivotal game long enough to be charged with six earned runs, essentially putting the game out of reach in the fourth inning? 190 of the 214 regular season games in which he's appeared have been starts. Then on Monday, the Sox took it to Aaron Boone's most unsafe pitcher - or at least their hardest throwing - Luis Severino. He said he threw all fastballs, despite what the pitch-recognition systems were calling them, the fastest of which hit 90 miles per hour and the slowest of them at 68.

"As terrible a night as it was for us, we've got to turn the page", Boone said. "But I scooted up in the box a little bit, and I was going to be swinging at anything and try to hook anything. I don't think it's really quite settled in yet". We worked the count. That, too, was overturned by the replay room umpires, which include Marvin Hudson, Brian Knight, David Rackley and Bill Welke during the Division Series. The Indians finished at 15 percent. There are different ways to win. I'm sure that'll go well and not have one hint of controversy. If you fall behind guys, you give them the opportunity to see pitches in the strike zone. "They can put up a three-spot in a hurry and this club can do the same thing".

"All empires fall sooner or later", then-Red Sox president Larry Lucchino said that night.
