Houston and Boston split the series in Houston in late May and early June.
You can always, if you're inclined this way, look at these Yankees-Red Sox games through the well-smudged lens of history. Brock Holt recorded the first cycle in Major League Baseball postseason history. The Red Sox produced their fourth seven-run inning in a postseason game and first since Game 1 of the 2007 World Series against the Colorado Rockies. "Obviously you don't go into the game expecting to make history or do anything like that, let alone score 16 runs against a very good New York Yankees team".
"It was a good night overall for everyone". And everything else went Boston's way all night, so why not this? He was pulled after four straight batters reached in the fourth. The trade deadline acquisition from Tampa Bay was overpowering, carving his way through seven innings in his first postseason start.
"He's not around here (all the time)", Severino said.
Hoping for a deep outing, Boston manager Alex Cora selected Eovaldi for Game 3 over Rick Porcello, who pitched two-thirds of an inning of relief in Friday's opener and now will match up against 38-year-old left-hander CC Sabathia in Game 4.
Holt began the frame with a leadoff single. Mookie Betts hits a rocket, (Xander) Bogaerts hits a rocket. Andrew Benintendi followed by adding what was the truly killer blow, lining a three-run double to the corner in right.
Steve Pearce hit a soft two-out liner into shallow center field for a single, and then J.D. Martinez hit a jam shot to the area that's normally occupied by the second baseman.
With four more years and $127 million left on Price contract, there is plenty of time to debate whether his acute postseason woes are some sort of character flaw, such as a sheer inability to handle the pressure, or a random fluke of statistics and small sample sizes. We know that CC didn't like it when Eduardo Nunez tried to lay one down a year ago, so that bears watching.

The 0-0 draw also means Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea have conceded the least amount of goals. You need to finish. "You can not defend them over 95 minutes at 100 percent". 'I have to look forward.
Boston second baseman Brock Holt celebrates hitting a two-run home run with second baseman Ian Kinsler in the ninth inning in game three of the 2018 ALDS playoff baseball series at Yankee Stadium. Like so many of their milestones set or matched this season, the previous reference points were teams that won championships.
In their seven matchups this season, the Astros averaged 4.9 runs per game and the Red Sox averaged 4.4 runs per game.
Again, maybe none of it would have mattered, considering Eovaldi was far and away the best pitcher in the ballpark on Monday night.
Miguel Andujar also has been replaced.
Judge then grounded out to short, and Gregorius struck out swinging to end the frame. The game got away so completely in the fourth inning that Nathan Eovaldi could afford to challenge Yankee hitters without any real fear of outcome.
Within moments, Romine was on the mound for the first time as a professional, thus becoming the first position player since Kansas City's Cliff Pennington in the 2015 ALDS to pitch in a postseason game.
Every starter had at least one hit for the Red Sox, who piled up 18 in all. Of course, they're not going to say that. "I think attacking, being aggressive, and go from there". Signed to a seven-year $217 million before the 2016 season - which made him the highest-paid pitcher in baseball - he has alternated between brilliant and bad, with most of the latter example coming in his biggest starts.
