After a Game 3 drubbing, the Yankees are on the ropes. Will the survive?

Bernie Williams misses the ball

ALDS GAME 4
RED SOX AT YANKEES
RICK PORCELLO (17-7 4.28 ERA) VS C.C. SABATHIA (9-7, 3.65 ERA)
5:00 PM, TBS
RED SOX LEAD 2-1

The Red Sox murdered the Yankees to death last night, with Brock Holt (BROCK HOLT!) hitting for the cycle on the way. This was compounded by Aaron Boone making some questionable pitching decisions when things got a little dicey. Look, the transition from booth to manager isn’t always seamless.

Is Rick Porcello the oddest-in-hindsight Cy Young winner ever? (Non-reliever category?) His performance since has been... not great. Here he is, starting an elimination game, though. What a time to be alive.

If the Red Sox win, it will be the first time since 2014 that none of the four division series went the full 5 games. That year also featured a sweep and a 4-1 LCS. Of course, the World Series went the full 7. Baseball!
