Alex Cora made the right moves when Red Sox needed it most


"Me watching from afar a year ago, especially in the postseason, you could kind of see that raw intensity connection that the fan base had with the players".

"This one I'll remember for a long time", Holt said.

The outcome was stripped of all mystery, but history was put in play when Holt hit a ground-rule double in the eighth inning, leaving him a homer shy of his second-career cycle.

And the home run came off a position player. I was trying to hit a home run. It's definitely probably the most important game I've ever pitched in. But the Red Sox, frequent visitors who clinched the AL East crown at Yankee Stadium just 2½ weeks ago, were hardly intimidated. This season there has been just one game with such a dynamic, with Sabathia allowing just one run on five hits and a walk over seven innings. Three of them ranked atop the major leagues in one category: contact rate.

"I think from pitch 1, we let them know that we were here", Cora said.

Pompeo: 'Significant progress' in denuclearization talks with North Korea
It added that the two sides agreed on holding working negotiations for the second North Korean-U.S. summit as early as possible. Mike Pompeo , the US secretary of state, made the announcement after a Sunday meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un .

"I think back to the replay of the Luke Voit play at first base, that Angel Hernandez actually got right".

Every starter had at least one hit for the Red Sox, who piled up 18 in all.

"It was a special moment for me", Eovaldi said.

Should the Red Sox win Game 3, they have a former Cy Young Award victor pitching basically in his hometown (Porcello went to Seton Hall Prep) to try to advance Boston to the ALCS; if they lose, though, then they have the same former Cy Young Award victor pitching to keep them alive instead of a wild card in Eovaldi.

Hernandez's troubles started in the second inning, when Didi Gregorius bunted with Giancarlo Stanton on first and the umpire ruled Gregorius beat the throw from pitcher Nathan Eovaldi.

Arsenal thrash Fulham for ninth straight win
The two substitutions saw Arsenal shift gears, with Ramsey adding a third moments after entering following Aubameyang's assist. He played today in the middle then right in the 4-4-2 and his performance was the same.

Devers singled twice, stole a base, scored two runs and knocked in another.

Luis Severino and Lance Lynn played the hapless roles of Kevin Brown and Javier Vazquez, respectively, as Boston's offense raked both pitchers over the coals. "He's had success against them, and it seems like it's a good matchup; obviously, in the playoffs, game planning is part of it, and I know they're going to be ready, but we will too, and we trust his stuff".

Yankees: CF Aaron Hicks remained out of the lineup after missing Game 2 with tightness in his right hamstring, which forced him from the series opener Friday. Alex Cora was Houston's bench coach in that title-winning season, and he helped his club dispatch the Red Sox in four games in the ALDS.

"I found out once we had landed (in New York) that I was going to start Game 3", Eovaldi added of the move.

Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp: Nations League a 'senseless' competition
Don't lose the ball in risky positions because when you lose the ball there, they counter attack with Firmino, Mane and Salah. If you want to see fresher, give them a summer break - for Jordan Henderson , it was exactly two weeks, which is amusing .
