Now, they are each at the helm of opposite posts, and the memories of those 2017 postseason crowds in NY are on each of their minds today as they prepare their teams to face off for Game 3 of the ALDS on Monday night. The former delivered the hit that broke Game 3 open in the fourth inning, when he blasted a bases-clearing double to make it 7-0 Red Sox. The homer made the game 16-1, and Holt made history. And everything else went Boston's way all night, so why not this? "You are not supposed to get feedback from inside, but guys are watching the game, they go in the clubhouse and tell you how many pitches were borderline pitches or outside the box and we know, so right away we react to it".

The most scrutinized person on the field Tuesday night for Game 4 of the ALDS wasn't wearing a Yankees or Red Sox uniform.

It's worth noting that even Holt indicated following Monday's game that he didn't expect to be in the lineup for Game 4.

"How does he know what time I normally go out?" Rick Porcello starts for Boston.

The Red Sox attempt to win the series in Game 4, which begins at 8:07 p.m. on Tuesday at Yankee Stadium in New York City. Like I always say, I care about my arm and being healthy. But his command never suffered as he kept the best home run-hitting team in baseball history from going deep.

Meanwhile, Danny Lee was just outside the top 10 after his second round at the opening event of the PGA Tour season in California. Congratulations to all the players for an excellent tournament and especially to Lucas Bjerregaard on an impressive victory.

"Lance had a little bit of trouble, obviously, coming in there. I rounded the bases, and seeing everybody going nuts in the dugout was a pretty cool moment for me". He actually faced three batters in Game 1 of this series, but he only threw 15 pitches, so he shouldn't be compromised here. But the Red Sox, frequent visitors who clinched the AL East crown at Yankee Stadium just 2½ weeks ago, were hardly intimidated. Furthermore, the Red Sox are really good, and Sabathia has a significant third time through the order penalty. Eovaldi allowed one run and five hits in seven innings, throwing 72 of 97 pitches for strikes. Martinez at the plate, Benintendi stole second base. Betts also scored two runs and drove in two. It was loud the whole time, and I think even opposing players can feel it. Darling said he read Yankees pitching coach Larry Rothschild's lips as he said "7:40" - the game's start time - to his starting pitcher.

Competing only against a Sun Belt college football matchup, some early season National Hockey League games and preseason NBA, this prime-time playoff matchup should see plenty of betting action tonight. Steve Pearce played first and had an RBI single in the fourth. Or you can just look at it this way: In the autumn of 2018 two of the best three teams in baseball (the other one is already bound for the ALCS) still have nine innings, or 18 perhaps, in which to decide their seasons.

Most notably, Darling received criticism for being insensitive in analyzing the outing Saturday by Masahiro Tanaka, a Japanese pitcher who started for the Yankees in Game 2.

It wasn't a turn of phrase that irked many viewers Monday so much as an apparent return to an informal code that Major League Baseball itself is eager to move past.
