Holt becomes first player to hit for cycle in playoffs

Holt becomes first player to hit for cycle in playoffs

New York, which scored its lone run on a groundout by Didi Gregorius in the fourth, saw its seven-game home postseason streak snapped.

Also like the Yankees, the Astros knocked the Red Sox out of the postseason last year, the only year the teams have met in the postseason.

The 30-year-old utility player hit for the cycle in the Red Sox's 16-1 road win over the Yankees in Game 3 of the American League Division Series.

The Red Sox are 8-1 in their last nine Monday games. That has to hurt. "It's fantastic how he's getting jobs umpiring in these playoff games". It's even worse when that rival decides to stomp all over your grave. At an earlier point in Monday's telecast, Darling told viewers that the pitcher did not begin his bullpen warmup until 7:32 p.m., just 10 minutes before he was scheduled to take the mound against the Red Sox.

"You get a little antsy when a position player is on the mound". As with the Yankees, Houston hosted the Red Sox for a four-game series at Minute Maid Park, and then visited Fenway Park for a three-game set. It's not me trying to crack the code or doing some journalistic exercise.

"We figured we would use some starters at times, you can do that with some of the time", Dombrowski said. "He was awful behind the plate today". I was trying to hit a home run.

White said Nurmagomedov should've "pulled [McGregor] up from the ground and said, 'Hey, good fight, ' and got his belt". Derrick Lewis won in the ring, in the post-fight interview and on Twitter Saturday night.

Sale had started Game 1 and would have been in line to start a decisive Game 5. "I rounded the bases, and seeing everyone going nuts in the dugout was a pretty cool moment for me". It's barely halfway over and anyone who's watched a playoff game (any game, really) in Yankee Stadium knows that the team can rally quickly.

Darling said after Benintendi stole second base, "Well, I guess [that's] from the school of never taking anything for granted". Steve Pearce sliced a cutter into right-center to put runners at the corners and Martinez hit a third-inning sacrifice fly for second straight night, giving him six RBIs in the series.

Hernandez is in his 28th year as a major league umpire. "Mitch is available, but he's not 100 percent", Cora said.

Severino's 10-2 record and 2.74 ERA this season at Yankee Stadium, including seven innings of one-run ball the last time he faced the Sox on September 19, should give him all the confidence needed to put the Yankees up 2-1 in the ALDS.

Now down 2-1 and in danger of being eliminated in the best-of-five matchup, they'll turn to CC Sabathia on Tuesday night in hopes of saving their season.

'I was fine with the way CC was throwing the ball, ' Boone said. Catcher Gary Sanchez told reporters that the pitcher had followed "his normal routine", while Yankees pitching coach Larry Rothschild said Darling's concerns were "a little bit blown out of proportion". "It happens, man. I mean, so many bang-bang plays consistently".
