Astros, Red Sox announce starters for first 2 ALCS games

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.

The New York Yankees' season came to an end on Tuesday night at the hands of the Boston Red Sox. "And Aaron, he's one of our resident deejays, so he's got a pretty extensive playlist", NY manager Aaron Boone said afterward.

He let reporters in the Yankee clubhouse know after the 4-3 game.

To open their league championship series, the Red Sox and Houston Astros are sticking with their rotation from the ALDS.

There were seven Frenchmen named on the list after helping Les Bleus win their second World Cup in Russian Federation this summer.

The Red Sox carried a 4-1 lead into the ninth thanks to J.D. Martinez's sacrifice fly, run-scoring hits by Ian Kinsler and Nunez and a solo home run by Christian Vazquez. The 10 straight losses are the longest streak in postseason history. The 2016 AL Cy Young Award victor entered with a 0-3 in 12 previous postseason appearances, which included four starts.

Porcello needed only 25 pitches to get through New York's lineup the first time and entered the fifth inning with only 40 pitches.

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. It would prove to be their only run off of him.

There's no crying in baseball - unless Angel Hernandez is behind the plate. He had four of his calls reviewed at first base. The attractive thing about sports is that whether you lose 16-1 or 1-0, it counts the same and there's no better pitcher for this spot than CC Sabathia.
