The Red Sox eliminated the Yankees in thrilling fashion Tuesday night in the Bronx and then had some fun in the locker room - with a familiar song blaring over the speakers. Boston did so with class, pure joy and a hint of pettiness.
The lefty's spot in the Red Sox rotation was in question after he was lit up by the New York Yankees in Game 2 of the ALDS. The National League, originally founded in 1876, consists of the following teams: Arizona Diamondbacks; Atlanta Braves; Chicago Cubs; Cincinnati Reds; Colorado Rockies; Los Angeles Dodgers; Miami Marlins; Milwaukee Brewers; New York Mets; Philadelphia Phillies; Pittsburgh Pirates; San Diego Padres; San Francisco Giants; St. Louis Cardinals; and Washington Nationals. He fell to 0-9 as a starter in his postseason career, with his overall ERA ballooning to 6.04.
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. Aaron Hicks missed a two-run homer by about 4 feet on a foul drive down the right-field line.

"He's absolutely bad. He was awful behind the plate today", Sabathia told reporters after the game, per Tim Healey of Newsday. "I don't think Ángel Hernández should be umping playoff games". He was bad at first base.
The career Major League Baseball umpire was stationed behind the plate for Tuesday's ALDS Game 4, just one day after he had three close calls at first base overturned in. Major League Baseball declined comment, spokesman Mike Teevan said.
