Yankees rout Oakland A’s in American League wild card

What if disaster strikes again in Yankees’ wild-card game

The Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees back at each other in the postseason for the first time in 14 years.

With his rotation heavily depleted by injuries, Melvin started Hendriks in a "bullpen game", a strategic trend that's quickly catching on around the majors after an innovative Tampa Bay organization employed it often this year with tangible success.

"I've been waiting for this moment a long time".

Hendriks (the loser) had not allowed a home run since June 24, the night before he was cut from the major league roster.

Severino struggled in the second half, and he lasted just one-third of an inning in last year's Wild Card game, but his skipper is confident the righty is ready for the rebound tonight. "Didn't quite get ahead, got into some bad counts and they made me pay", Hendriks said.

-One more from the skipper on the challenges of preparing for a one-and-done: "We've had our meetings, and support staff has been pouring into all the things that hopefully can give us that little bit of a competitive advantage".

If it's a close game Wednesday night, Piscotty will be a guy the A's lean on to come through in a big spot, as he did so often in the regular season. They opened the fifth with their first hits of the night, consecutive singles that chased Severino.

"It was a tough environment", Davis said.

New York's outfield will consist of Andrew McCutchen, Aaron Judge and Aaron Hicks, meaning the veteran Brett Gardner will start on the bench.

But Dubow said he would be surprised if the judge ultimately rejected the proposed settlement . The SEC charged Musk with misleading investors with the tweet, saying it had no basis in fact.

Severino atoned for flopping in his postseason debut past year, and late-season spark Luke Voit added a two-run triple off Blake Treinen in a four-run sixth, missing a home run by inches. "So I think when you reflect back and look where we started the year, kind of where we came from, it ends up being a good year". He stretched a couple of times and tried to figure out when he might get a chance to play.

Only Zach Britton was touched up for a run when Oakland's Khris Davis smacked a two-run home run off him in the eighth as their bullpen rode to victory midweek.

No wonder he threw four innings of two-hit, no-run, seven-strikeout ball on Wednesday.

But by then, it was way too late.

"Early in the game they're going to be loud".

"We feel like with the group that we have here together that we're going to get better each and every year", Melvin said.

"We just didn't do enough offensively tonight".

"Because they're patient and they're unsafe, you've got to be able to mix those pitches and you've got to be able to throw strikes with all those pitches", Boone said.

These three players are not just the top three on the A's, they all will be receiving AL MVP votes this year. He chugged into third with his first big league triple and let loose with a holler. "When you're away and you get the crowd into it, that's more that you have to overcome".
