CC Sabathia took his questions, he provided his answers, he spoke of his pitching performance in the Yankees' 4-3 season-ending loss to the Red Sox, of his 10 years with the Yankees, and then he made it his turn. Boston scored its 13th run when Ian Kinsler trotted in on an eighth-inning wild pitch, then took a 14-1 lead on Betts' base hit later in the inning as Red Sox fans began chanting "Let's Go Red Sox".

Following Benintendi's hit, the Red Sox extended the lead on a single to left by Steve Pearce off Chad Green. The Yankees immediately challenged and, with a sellout crowd standing and hoping, the out call was upheld after a 63-second review.

Dent previously threw out the ceremonial first pitch ahead of Game 7 of the AL Championship Series in 2004.

Confident players were excited about returning to the Big Apple, and Judge even walked past Boston's clubhouse inside Fenway Park early Sunday morning with Frank Sinatra's rendition of "New York, New York" blaring from a boom box. Boston is now one win away from an American League Championship Series date with the Houston Astros.

"We're ready for another shot", Red Sox pitcher Rick Porcello said.

NY faced a win-or-go-home predicament in that 1978 clash between these storied rivals, and did so again Tuesday night.

The Red Sox are 8-1 in their last nine Monday games. It's hard to imagine how, with the season on the line, Sabathia was the better option against those righties in the third inning over one of New York's top relievers.

Didi Gregorius singled and Giancarlo Stanton struck out, dropping to 4 for 18 (.222) with no RBIs in the series.

This stop, however, was not characterized by what she wore, but her support for Judge Brett Kavanaugh and Dr. She also visited the great pyramids of Giza as well as the Sphinx as part of her visit to the nation.

Boston got to celebrate the series-clinching win on the field at Yankee Stadium, in front of all the fans, including the one who tossed a beer at Craig Kimbrel.

Overall, the admiration for the diminutive utility player, whose struggles with injuries limited him to just 64 games last season, was overwhelming.

"We feel like CC physically is in a good place right now coming off a really good start at the end of the year", said Aaron Boone yesterday.

Dent, now 66, hasn't had a lot of success while on the field in a ceremonial role. "I'll play anywhere. I still want to play. So whoever needs me".

The possible deciding Game 4 will be played at Yankee Stadium on Tuesday. The 2016 AL Cy Young Award victor entered with a 0-3 in 12 previous postseason appearances, which included four starts. Brett Gardner walked twice in four plate appearances. He said either first base or second base.

He needed 35 pitches to get through two innings and nicked Benintendi on the right shoulder with a slider on his first pitch of the third. I was trying to hit a home run.

Yeah, A.C. does a good job of letting the guys that don't play every day, letting us know when we're playing so we can kind of mentally prepare in that way.
