In a rare relief appearance, Boston Red Sox ace, Chris Sale, strikes out Aaron Hicks in the eighth inning. SALE pitched a perfect 1-2-3 eighth inning to protect a 4-1 lead. The Red Sox went on to defeat the New York Yankees 4-3 and win the AL Division Series.
Check out these six selected images from tonight’s Boston Red Sox/ New York Yankees game from Yankees stadium where the Red Sox defeated the Yankees 4-3 to win the AL DIVISIONAL SERIES.
Stars of the game were Red Sox starting pitcher, RICK PORCELLO, who held the Yankees to only 4 hits and one run over five innings for his first postseason victory; CHRIS SALE, who in a rare relief appearance, pitched a perfect 1-2-3 eighth inning to protect a 4-1 lead; and
Boston Red Sox catcher, CHRISTIAN VASQUEZ, who hit the winning home run in the fourth inning to give the Red Sox a 4-0 lead.
I included 2 iconic celebration shots as well.
The Red Sox will now face last year’s World Series Champions, the Houston Astros, in the AL CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES.
