Luis Severino of New York Yankees -- Warm-up routine not rushed

Luis Severino of New York Yankees -- Warm-up routine not rushed

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

"It just kind of shows you what kind of team we have and that we could explode at any minute", Betts said.

Yankees: CF Aaron Hicks remained out of the lineup after missing Game 2 with tightness in his right hamstring, which forced him from the series opener Friday. He had 136 career wins and a 3.87 ERA.

Analyst Ron Darling said on TBS that Severino didn't get to the bullpen for his warm-ups until 7:32, just eight minutes before the first pitch. His first pitch of the game bounced shy of the plate. "So he was pretty clear with that", Rothschild said. The trade deadline acquisition from Tampa Bay was overpowering, carving his way through seven innings in his first postseason start. "So if there was a difference in his warmups, he had already thrown 44 pitches when all this stuff happened".

"Seven innings, two hits, one run", was Cora's answer when asked Sunday what he expected from Eovaldi tonight. Boston took a quick 3-0 lead. The Yankees traded for Boone at the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline, sending Branden Claussen and Charlie Manning and a bit of cash to Cincinnati, and Boone was good not great in the season's final two months.




This outing continued that troubling trend for Severino. It was by that point Boone finally determined he had seen enough. Results notwithstanding, he should've come in earlier in the inning rather than Lynn.

"Trying to keep the ball in the ballpark, try and get quick outs and try not to let the crowd get too insane and get behind them and get them going", Eovaldi said of his Stadium strategy earlier this year. "He certainly didn't seem as electric as his last time out".

Regardless of the numbers, though, it's up to Eovaldi to execute - and going back to the thought of series placement, this is his first postseason start, so it's important to avoid a situation like Severino found himself in during last year's AL Wild Card Game, which was his first postseason start.

Of the 18 batters Severino faced Monday, seven connected on balls that had exit velocities at 100 miles per hour or faster. Severino didn't even know what time the game started. Boone's reluctance to call on an actual reliever shouldn't have been based on preservation, especially in a pivotal playoff game. Boone explained that he had stayed away from his relief aces because he wanted to save them for later innings, and that he eventually conceded the game-catcher Austin Romine pitched the ninth-in favor of keeping everyone fresh for Tuesday night. But on Saturday night, the player feeling the crush of those walls, and hearing the vitriol of the crowd, wore the home-white trousers and home-red jersey of the Red Sox.

"Obviously this is my first, but I'm excited", Eovaldi said. He was just 5-for-31 (.161 average) with one extra-base hit (a double) and nine strikeouts against the Twins (in the ALDS) and the Red Sox.
