  • Red Sox hold off Yanks in Game 4, face Astros in ALCS

Steve Pearce stretched, falling on his chest for a sprawling catch.

Kimbrel, who finished with 42 saves during the regular season, went on to struggle in the bottom of the ninth, allowing two runs on one hit and two walks before closing the door on the Yankees' season.

Still in search of his first postseason win as a starter, David Price gets the call for the Red Sox in Game 2. He came around to score on an RBI single by Eduardo Nunez, who was also back in the lineup after sitting out the Red Sox's 16-run barrage in Game 3. He's their ace and will pitch multiple times in this series.

Didi Gregorius singled and Giancarlo Stanton struck out, dropping to 4 for 18 (.222) with no RBIs in the series. Christian Vásquez tacked on a solo home run in the fourth inning off of Zach Britton to push the lead to 4-0.

"He's absolutely bad", said Sabathia, who gave up three runs on five hits over three innings, with two walks and a strikeout.

Nationally, viewership for TBS baseball postseason coverage is up 40 percent over 2016 - the last time the network had the ALDS - and 13 percent over last year's NLDS, which included a decisive Cubs-Nationals Game 5.

It was in this exact setting that the Red Sox last captured an American League pennant, as a Shane Victorino grand slam against the Tigers in Game 6 in 2013 pushed the Red Sox to the World Series, where they defeated the Cardinals in six games. The 2016 AL Cy Young Award victor entered with a 0-3 in 12 previous postseason appearances, which included four starts.

Boston completed the first step of its historically tall task with relative ease, knocking NY out in four games. Sánchez worked a full count, then lifted a fly ball to deep left field that brought Gregorius home. He had four of his calls reviewed at first base.

He needed 35 pitches to get through two innings and nicked Benintendi on the right shoulder with a slider on his first pitch of the third.
