Monday night, the Boston Red Sox got to the New York Yankees early. More than that, though, they go to the Yankees often. And by the time Game 3 came to a close, Boston had taken a 16-1 victory into Game 4. So that’s right, Yankees fans — winning Game 2 meant Game 4 would be necessary. It also meant they’d see two home games, of course.
But Monday night got out of hand. And utility man Brock Holt even made MLB postseason history.

How about that?
“This one I’ll remember for a long time,” Holt told reporters following the win. “Obviously, you don’t go into the game expecting to make history or do anything like that, let alone score 16 runs against a good New York Yankees team. So it was a good night overall for everyone.”
Game 4 comes at us tonight from Yankee Stadium. Will the Red Sox book their date with the Houston Astros in the ALCS? Or, can the Yankees get over their destruction quickly to force Game 5?
It’ll be Rick Porcello and C.C. Sabathia getting things started on the mound.
