Brief but intense Yankees-Red Sox postseason rivalry has produced many heroes

What Brock Holt and the Red Sox said about history-making cycle
Rick Porcello earned his first win in a playoff start, Christian Vazquez hit his first home run since June 26 and Chris Sale pitched out of relief in a bizarro Game 4 win, 4-3, that secured the Red Sox' first playoff series win since 2013.
A name no Red Sox fan likes to hear was on the field at Yankee Stadium on Tuesday night. NY is 8-3 in its last 11 home games versus the Red Sox.
Boston didn't win 108 games to lose in the Division Series, and it definitely didn't win 108 and the American League East to lose to the Yankees.
Expect more of the same Tuesday night. Boston is now one win away from an American League Championship Series date with the Houston Astros.
For the first time in five years, Red Sox starting pitchers showed up.
The Red Sox built a 3-0 lead on Luis Severino (0-1) through three innings and led 4-0 when Benintendi stepped in against Lance Lynn.
NY had not put a leadoff runner on until Kimbrel, a seven-time All-Star closer, walked Aaron Judge on four pitches leading off the ninth. Luke Voit walked on four pitches, and Kimbrel hit Neil Walker on a leg with his next pitch, forcing in a run. That was upheld by the replay room umpires.
"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.

Every starter had at least one hit for the Red Sox, who piled up 18 in all.
Yankees manager Aaron Boone only has two games of Stadium postseason experience to draw on himself - this year's Wild Card Game as the manager, and last year's as a broadcaster - but he knows those two games against the Twins and Athletics will be nothing compared to the next two nights. In all my years as pitcher, I never had a pitching coach have to tell me what time the game was.
Did Andrew Benintendi violate baseball's unwritten rules twice the Red Sox' 16-1 rout over the Yankees in Game 3 of the ALDS? The all-time series is now tied at two apiece.
Major League Baseball moved to dismiss the case, but U.S. District Judge Michael Barrett transferred it to federal court in NY on September 30 without ruling on the motion to dismiss. The 2016 AL Cy Young Award victor entered with a 0-3 in 12 previous post-season appearances, which included four starts. As of Monday morning, 58 percent of public bets are being placed on host NY.
By the ninth, backup catcher Austin Romine was on the mound for NY and he gave up a two-run homer to Holt that completed his cycle.
Hernandez missed 3 calls in the first 4 innings.
Holt raked his triple in the next exchange, scoring Xander Bogaerts and Pearce.
Kinsler doubled over a leaping Gardner for a 2-0 lead and Nunez singled on the next pitch for his first RBI of the post-season. Incredibly, umpire Angel Hernandez might be having a worse night than the Bronx Bombers. 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.
