MLB Twitter Celebrates Red Sox’s ALDS Win By Savagely Trolling New York

Craig Kimbrel and the Boston Red Sox held off the Yankees' ninth-inning rally that ended with a video replay, eliminating NY with a 4-3 victory Tuesday night that set up a postseason rematch with the World Series champion Houston Astros.

All of that, and she was raised in Highbridge, "nine blocks from Yankee Stadium".

Sale pitched a crucial scoreless inning in relief Tuesday night in the Red Sox's series-clinching win against the Yankees.

Gary Sanchez fell behind 0-2 in the count, worked it full and sent a drive that had the crowd roaring only for Andrew Benintendi to catch it on the left-field warning track, a few feet short of a game-ending grand slam. But not only did they pop bottles-they did so to Frank Sinatra's "New York, New York".

As for the Red Sox, they now look forward to a matchup with the Houston Astros in the American League Championship Series. The 2016 AL Cy Young Award victor entered with a 0-3 in 12 previous postseason appearances, which included four starts. He held the Yankees to one run on four hits.




The Red Sox made it 4-0 when Vazquez lined a 2-1 fastball into the right field seats off Zach Britton.

Boston recorded its fourth straight postseason win in NY.

Hernández was Game 4's home plate umpire while Sabathia was on the mound. "We have a bad night, we don't get to play. Pitching is one of those". Benintendi argued after he was called out on a breaking ball with the bases loaded for the final out of the eighth, a pitch that may have been outside. He was awful at first base [in Monday's game]. "He was awful at first base".

Sabathia continued to express his frustration, adding that it was "sad" that Hernandez was chosen as the umpire for playoff games.

"Major League Baseball needs to do something about Angel", Martinez said.
