Red Sox play 'New York New York' in clubhouse

Red Sox play 'New York New York' in clubhouse

Instead, the BoSox put on Frank Sinatra's "New York, New York" as a not-so-subtle middle finger to their hosts, in particular New York outfielder Aaron Judge.

Sale pitched a crucial scoreless inning in relief Tuesday night in the Red Sox's series-clinching win against the Yankees. As far as trolls go, it was pretty vicious.

After taking the ALDS three games to one, the AL East champion Red Sox will advance to the ALCS against defending World Series champion Houston.

Right now, the SportsLine Projection Model leans toward a Dodgers-Red Sox World Series.

They scored three in the third off Sabathia (0-1), and it started with a sacrifice fly by Martinez.

Sabathia continued to express his frustration, adding that it was "sad" that Hernandez was chosen as the umpire for playoff games. The 10 straight losses are the longest streak in postseason history.


In Game 2 of the ALDS, Price lasted only 1.2 innings and allowed three runs on three hits and two walks, bringing his career postseason ERA to 5.28.

Sabathia escaped a bases-loaded jam in the first when Kinsler hit an inning-ending flyout to Gardner in front of the left-field wall.

Kinsler doubled over a leaping Gardner for a 2-0 lead and Nunez singled on the next pitch for his first RBI of the post-season. "And Aaron, he's one of our resident deejays, so he's got a pretty extensive playlist", NY manager Aaron Boone said afterward.

"I think we're right there knocking on the door", Boone said, "very close to being a championship club right now. Pitching is one of those".

The career Major League Baseball umpire was stationed behind the plate for Tuesday's ALDS Game 4, just one day after he had three close calls at first base overturned in. 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's absolutely awful. He was bad behind the plate today". He was awful at first base.

Major League Baseball (MLB) is the most historic professional sports league in the United States and consists of 30 member clubs in the USA and Canada, representing the highest level of professional baseball.
