The Red Sox celebrated by playing Frank Sinatra's "New York, New York" in their clubhouse after the game.
After "Brock Star" cemented his place in the history books, he received overwhelming praise from his teammates, his coaching staff, and Red Sox fans, while also revealing that he actually questioned his spot in the lineup before the game.
CC Sabathia became the latest pitcher to put NY in an early hole as rookie manager Aaron Boone again stuck with his starter too long, and the Yankees fell just short of extending their season Tuesday night with a 4-3 loss to the rival Boston Red Sox in Game 4 of their AL Division Series.
The team was not subtle about its intentions. Boston acquired him from Tampa Bay in July and the hard-throwing righty compiled a 1.93 ERA in four starts against NY this season - three with the Red Sox. That has to hurt.
Severino was removed with the bases loaded and nobody out, but relievers Lance Lynn and Chad Green quickly let the game get out of hand. It's even worse when that rival decides to stomp all over your grave. Whether the rushed work in the bullpen affected Severino or not, he failed to deliver when the Yankees had a chance to force the Red Sox against the wall.
Xander Bogaerts finished 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Game 2 to help lead the Red Sox offense.
"You get a little antsy when a position player is on the mound". The Red Sox obliterated the Yankees 16-1 in Game 3, which saw them take a 10-0 lead after four innings. But I scooted up in the box a little bit, and I was going to be swinging at anything and try to hook anything.

Tropical Storm Michael Could Turn Into 'Devastating' Hurricane Before It Hits Florida
Rick Scott has declared a state of emergency for 26 counties in Florida's Panhandle and Big Bend areas. He warned that storm surge could affect areas of Florida not in the storm's direct path.
Looking to play left-handed hitters against Severino, the first-year skipper inserted Holt at second base and Rafael Devers at third. Obviously, you don't expect to hit a home run, but I was trying to. That's probably the first time I've ever tried to do that. Eovaldi allowed one run and five hits in seven innings, throwing 72 of 97 pitches for strikes. I knew I was going to be in here. "I thought Angel Hernandez called a good game". "I go (to the bullpen) 20 minutes before the game, I play catch and then I always get on the mound 10 minutes before the game".
Devers singled twice, stole a base, scored two runs and knocked in another. He hit a home run off a 79 miles per hour Romine slider, according to MLB.com Statcast. "It was tough in this first round for a while, but I think this is a group we have that is pretty special".
Mitch Moreland was again on the bench with hamstring soreness, though Cora said he was available to pinch hit (he didn't).
Sabathia, 38, threw 153 innings with a 3.65 ERA this season.
"We feel like CC physically is in a good place right now coming off a really good start at the end of the year", said Aaron Boone yesterday. And their backup catcher wound up pitching.
"I've been talking about them the whole season, so now we go".
