MLB Postseason 2018: Three takeaways from Boston's win

New York Yankees starting pitcher Luis Severino answers questions during a news conference Sunday Oct. 7 2018 in New York. The Yankees will play against the Boston Red Sox in Game 3 of the AL Division Series on Monday. (AP

"But Nate, he can even get away with mistakes, you know what I mean?"

"Over the course of the season, talking to him, and we have a great relationship, I think, we're very close, the way he goes about his business and how fiery he is and how he prepares. this guy, he gets it", said Cora. Baserunning, defensive positioning and pitch selection are often overshadowed by three-run home runs, but they can often make the difference between winning and losing.

He'll be the answer to a trivia question for that, and also for allowing Brock Holt's ninth-inning home run, which wrapped up the first-ever cycle in postseason history. "But I scooted up in the box a little bit, and I was going to be swinging at anything and try to hook anything". David Price suffered the loss as he surrendered three earned runs on three hits with two strikeouts over 1 2/3 innings. "I'm trying to do the same thing that I have been doing; stay aggressive and try to get that first pitch strike out of the way". You could definitely make the argument that Boston is lucky that it lost only one of the first two games, but that's just spilled milk. But the Red Sox now sit one win from reaching that next round of the playoffs after a stunning display on Monday night.

Severino's counterpart, Nathan Eovaldi, shut down the Yankees, allowing just one run and five hits in seven innings as the Red Sox took a 2-1 series lead.

Hurricane Michael's path: Track the storm here
Tropical storm winds extended out 170 miles (275 kilometers), primarily to the northeast and southeast of the storm's center. The track takes the developing storm as a hurricane toward a landfall near the Florida Panhandle Wednesday.

Nice we got a cycle in there. On a Boston-area sports-talk radio show this author happened to catch while driving back to NY on Sunday, hosts argued that the Red Sox should eat the remainder of Price's seven-year, $217-million contract and send him packing this offseason. That was the last straw, so Boone came out to the mound - surely to bring in a talented and experienced reliever, right? "Alex had already told me ahead of time to prepare as if I'm going to start Game 3 but expect Game 4 - but given the fact that we faced the Yankees so many times, if you're not prepared for them now, you're in trouble, so I feel like I'm prepared for them".

The Red Sox scored seven runs in all during the inning, building a 10-run lead.

"It was a special moment for me", Eovaldi said. The trade deadline acquisition from Tampa Bay was overpowering, carving his way through seven innings in his first postseason start. "I don't think it's sunk in".

Devers singled twice, stole a base, scored two runs and knocked in another.

Khabib Nurmagomedov leaves conference before late Conor McGregor shows up
When the bout was announced back in August, Khabib opened as a -200 favorite, while McGregor was listed at +160. Conor McGregor has been part of the UFC for five years, and its biggest star for at least three.

Nathan Eovaldi (6-7, 3.81 ERA) will start today for Boston, while NY counters with Luis Severino (19-8, 3.39).

The only other position player to pitch in a postseason game was Toronto infielder Cliff Pennington against Kansas City in the 2015 AL Championship Series.

Red Sox: Porcello (17-7, 4.28 ERA) got two late outs in relief during the series opener last Friday, so his start was pushed back a day to Game 4. So, by flipping his starters, Cora maybe gives himself a more favorable matchup in Game 4, at the expense of a lesser one in Game 3. But they clearly gave him too much rope in ALDS Game 3.
