"He threw me something high in the zone and I was able to do something with it", Sanchez said through a translator.
This is the best home field advantage in all of baseball and NY could send the Red Sox packing after Game 4 if Boston isn't careful.
Red Sox starter David Price came into Saturday night with a 6.00 ERA as a postseason starter, and that's now a 6.28 mark, thanks to solo homers by Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez and an RBI single that produced Andrew McCutchen's first career October RBI - all of which chased Price after just five outs.
The steep, sloping stands and intimate dimensions of Fenway Park, the "lyric little bandbox" of Updike's famous depiction, seem created to cause the impression, particularly on cool October nights, of walls closing in on the unsuspecting opponent standing at the center of its diamond.
"Maybe my wife cooks better food here".

Unfortunately for the 108-win Sox, the pressure cooker that is playoff baseball was limited for all of one batter, as Aaron Judge hit a 445-foot homer over the Green Moster in left-center to give NY a quick 1-0 lead. She typed "Tonight @ElGarySanchez became the first #Yankees catcher to hit two home runs in a postseason game since Gampa did it in Game 7 of the 1956 #WorldSeries".
It isn't panic time for the Red Sox quite yet, but they'll certainly need to piece together a more complete effort in Game 3 if they want to reclaim the series lead.
