Gary Sanchez, Aaron Judge power Yankees to Game 2 win in ALDS

BOSTON MA.- OCTOBER 5 Brandon Workman #44 of the Boston Red Sox yells out after striking out Gleyber Torres #25 of the New York Yankees with bases loaded in the sixth inning of Game 1 of Major League Baseball's American League Division Series at F

"I've got to say they have a good lineup, and I need to hit my spots, don't do mistakes, and try to go deep in my game".

The Yankees walked into Fenway Park in a game that they really needed to get. They return to the Bronx with no plans to fly back to Logan Airport this season.

Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora was not happy with one of his pitchers for making excuses over his lack of hustle during Game 2 of the ALDS.

The best formula they have in winning this series was splitting in Boston and winning the two games in Yankee Stadium. The Porcello move helped Boston's shaky bullpen survive Game 1, but nothing could prevent a collapse in a 6-2 loss in Game 2.

David Price has put together a stellar Major League career. The best-of-five series is tied 1-1.

Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez continued his assault of Sox lefthander Davis Price, and is now 7-for-14 in his career against the former Cy Young victor, with home runs accounting for six of his seven hits.

"I'm not sure", Price said, when asked what was behind his command issues.

"Trying to keep the ball in the ballpark - try and get quick outs, try not to let the crowd get too insane and get behind them and get them going", he said. I'm looking forward to getting back out there and getting another opportunity...

Southgate marks new deal with bold selections for England’s Nations League tasks
Sancho joined the "BVB" in the summer 2017 and has made 18 league appearances, providing two goals and nine assists so far. One of England's weak points in recent years, including at the World Cup, was a lack of creativity and vision in midfield.

Price may not see another chance this October. The 28-year-old right-hander, who throws at 97-98 miles per hour, allowed no earned runs in three of four starts this year against the Yankees. You want to give them a shot to win the game. His team managed as many strikeouts as hits (13) in the opening two games and the bottom of the order seems filled with overmatched hitters.

What went through Cora's mind, then, when Sanchez destroyed an offering from reliever Eduardo Rodriguez in the seventh inning.

Exactly 40 years ago, Munson, another revered Yankees catcher, homered in the eighth to help NY win Game 3 of the ALCS.

In any other game, in any other situation and against any other team, perhaps Cora would've stuck with Price longer. That home run against David Price was nearly a reminder. Boston is constructed in a similar fashion, knowing half its games are played in front of Fenway's Green Monster lurking in left field. But on Saturday night, the player feeling the crush of those walls, and hearing the vitriol of the crowd, wore the home-white trousers and home-red jersey of the Red Sox. Does he become the team's 25th man, permanently banished to the end of the bench? But regardless what happens, it's worth wondering if Price pitches again in this series and what the plan would be for the ALCS.

On Saturday night, he simply didn't do it, which just added to his disastrous playoff numbers. Red Sox relievers have given up five in 11 innings. Boston didn't manage to catch a break until the fourth inning, when Xander Bogaerts jumped on a first-pitch fastball and postmarked it straight out to the center field stands for a solo home run. But this series isn't going to come down to that.

Have yourself a night, Gary Sanchez!

It won't be easy, not with the new Yankee Stadium's short porches awaiting soft fly balls.

The Yankees have won a record 27 World Series crowns, most recently in 2009, while the Red Sox last captured the title, their eighth, in 2013.
