"I don't think he thinks he's very good", said Betts' science-of-hitting companion J.D. Martinez. Baserunning, defensive positioning and pitch selection are often overshadowed by three-run home runs, but they can often make the difference between winning and losing.

It was just the fourth time in a playoff inning that the Red Sox had plated at least seven runs and the second-most runs overall Boston has scored in any playoff contest. "And Aaron, he's one of our resident deejays, so he's got a pretty extensive playlist", NY manager Aaron Boone said later in the day at Yankee Stadium, a smirk filling his face. Stephen Tarpley was touched for three runs in the eighth inning.

"Two places that are historic franchises where the fans are definitely rowdy for their home team and against the visiting team", Red Sox reliever Matt Barnes said.
