NY got its first run on Brett Gardner's sacrifice fly in the fifth.
Moved back a day after throwing 15 pitches in the eighth inning of Game 1, Porcello (1-0) displayed command of the strike zone most of the night. As far as trolls go, it was pretty vicious. A year after losing to the Astros in the ALDS, Boston will open the best-of-seven matchup against them Saturday night at Fenway Park. Chris Sale is slated for Game 1 of the series. Matt Barnes and Ryan Brasier followed with a flawless inning each to protect a 4-1 lead, and Red Sox ace Chris Sale followed with a 1-2-3 eighth in a rare relief appearance.

Sabathia continued to express his frustration, adding that it was "sad" that Hernandez was chosen as the umpire for playoff games.
Boston recorded its fourth straight postseason win in NY.
The ball died at the warning track, and Kimbrel got a groundout from Gleyber Torres to end the 4-3 win, finish the American League Division Series and send the Red Sox into a celebration on their rivals' home field for the second time in less than three weeks.

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. We just got to continue to improve on the margins in every facet. "He was bad at first base [in Game 3]". Sabathia was livid. "I don't think Angel Hernandez should be umping playoff games", he said. During Game 3, Hernandez had three calls overturned by replay, which was the latest chapter in a career that has featured plenty of complaints from players on how he calls games.
"Major League Baseball needs to do something about Angel", Martinez said.More news: Democrats to force health care vote Wednesday in Senate
