Price Falters Again Bats Go Silent in 6-2 Game 2 Loss

Boston Red Sox's Brock Holt follows through on a triple against the New York Yankees during the fourth inning of Game 3 of baseball's American League Division Series, Monday, Oct. 8, 2018, in New York.

"I don't know where he got that, but I didn't say [anything] about [being] hurt", Severino said. "The ball just bounced their way". The Red Sox won the opener and the Yankees took Game 2, sending the best-of-five series to Yankee Stadium knotted up 1-1. They cheered him like he was one of their own. His first trip through the Boston order produced a series of line-drive outs, plus two singles, a walk and a Red Sox run.

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.

It can never be easy in NY, and it wasn't for the Red Sox in the ninth inning.

Yankees fans stuck it out in the Bronx for most of the game, though.

Severino started New York's postseason with four shutout innings in the AL wild-card win over Oakland last Wednesday.

Confident players were excited about returning to the Big Apple, and Judge even walked past Boston's clubhouse inside Fenway Park early Sunday morning with Frank Sinatra's rendition of "New York, New York" blaring from a boom box.

"It's a good song".

On Severino's night went, as Aaron Boone barreled on in what quickly turned into full disregard of caution or urgency. They were here to win three games and move on.

Veteran left-hander CC Sabathia had faced four batters in the third inning, and the Red Sox had already plated a run, with another two runners on base, when Boone finally got his bullpen heated up. "If you hear that from Yankees staff or something like that, maybe you can believe it, but I don't know where you get that from". Their manager let things get out of hand.

Catcher Gary Sanchez dropped a pitch on a stolen base that set up Boston's first run.

And when the stakes were the highest, when the team needed to show the regular season was no fluke, Cora came through and led the Sox past their first true test.

Holt said he was going to swing at anything that was thrown to him. "So I'm not going to go out there and compete if I'm not healthy".

Zach Britton gave up an opposite-field homer to No. 9 batter Christian Vazquez in the fourth, and NY never fully recovered. They won, somehow, and now and again it's left to the Yankees to deal with a winter of what-ifs. "It doesn't happen too often, but when you get to that point with your closer, that's who you're trying to get to and you look at it today and most of the series, they did a really fine job".

New York Yankees center fielder Aaron Hicks is not in the starting line-up heading into Monday night's game against the Boston Red Sox.
