Enough damage had already been done, given a dormant edition of the Red Sox offence had shown up for Game 2. In general theory, Porcello vs. Yankees Game 3 starter Luis Severino is an elite vs. elite pitching duel, while Eovaldi vs. Hardly seems possible, right?
NY and Boston split at Fenway Park and are tied 1-1 in the best-of-five AL Division Series going into Game 3 on Monday night. He realized that the Yankees own him, that the Yankees know that they own him, that David Price knows that the Yankees own him, so he got his ass out of the game.
Did they want to give him another days rest and move up Nathan Eovaldi? October has a way of cementing legacies. Berra had two in Game 7 of the 1956 World Series. Next time just bust your a- to first base.
The series now shifts back to NY for Games 3 and 4 on Monday and Tuesday. Boone's career with the Yankees ended that winter, when he tore his ACL in a pickup basketball game, violating the terms of his contract, leading to his release in late February.
Severino's home-road splits have been fairly significant this season. But the 2004 postseason is where he established his reputation as a clutch hitter.
Pulled after allowing the first two Boston runners aboard in the third and his team already trailing 3-0, Happ wasn't afforded the opportunity to work his way out of it.
Ortiz went 6-for-12 in the first three games of the ALCS, but his Red Sox lost all three games.
The Red Sox managed just five hits with a Xander Bogaerts solo homer in the fourth the only swat of significance.

Expect heavy traffic as Maggie tours Melania around the city
Egypt is the next and final stop on her tour of the continent, focusing on child welfare, education, tourism and conservation. The baby jumbo made a run, startling the US First Lady who jumped off and nearly fell on her back.
Judge kicked things off for the Yankees in the first inning. The game went to extra innings, again, and again Ortiz delivered. "Every single pitch they're locked in".
In all, Price was charged with three runs on three hits and two walks in 1 2/3 innings - the shortest playoff start of his career, and tied with Roger Clemens for the shortest in Red Sox postseason history.
Ortiz finished the seven-game series with 11 RBIs, 12 hits, three triples, a.387 average and 1.199 OPS and was an easy choice for series MVP.
While it's true that Severino was far-less effective post-All-Star break - and he and Martinez do have a relationship, as the two worked out together during the winter of 2016 in their native Dominican Republic, the 24-year-old Severino made it clear he never said anything about an injury to the former Red Sox star. But the Yankees early and often reminded David Price who he is. Boston trailed by a run, 4-3, and was on the verge of being swept.
For all the focus on big boppers, J.D. Martinez, Mookie Betts and Andrew Benintendi for Boston, and Judge, Giancarlo Stanton and Gary Sanchez for NY, relievers have reigned in an error when starting pitchers often are shown the exit before they have a chance to stumble too much. Bill Mueller smacked a 1-1 pitch back up the middle, chasing home Roberts with the tying run. Brett Gardner walked twice in four plate appearances.
Eovaldi's mark at Yankee Stadium is 3.38 in two starts, slightly better than his 3.70 career ERA in the Bronx, but again, that's inflated by the one start he made here with the Rays - or, if you look at the other side of the coin, not representative of the six shutout innings he pitched here on September 16. Eleven days later, NY won its 22nd World Series title.
Hernandez finished the job in Game 5.
Sanchez later broke the game open in the seventh with a three-run, 479-foot homer off Eduardo Rodriguez as the Yankees mashed their way to a 6-2 victory in Game 2 of the American League Division Series against the Red Sox.
