New York Yankees: What the Red Sox moving up Nathan Eovaldi means for the Yanks
Severino's 10-2 record and 2.74 ERA this season at Yankee Stadium, including seven innings of one-run ball the last time he faced the Sox on September 19, should give him all the confidence needed to put the Yankees up 2-1 in the ALDS.
Unfortunately for the Red Sox, they were forced to pitch Rick Porcello on Friday night in an effort to hold off the Yankees and get the victory in Game 1. 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.
Boston plated a touchdown-and-conversion worth of runs in the fourth inning to blow open what was a 3-0 lead. Only then did Boone come to get his young ace, but the snowball was already rolling down the hill by then. "And when he came back, next to Voit, he made a little comment to him and smiled a little bit, nearly like, you know, 'I got one right, '" Flaherty said.
Devers opened the second with a single and stolen base, then scored the game's first run on an infield single by catcher Christian Vazquez, who started in place of Sandy Leon.

Both men will likely see their futures re-evaluated after the elections, Trump advisers have said. Trump walked off Air Force One with Rosenstein and Chief of Staff John Kelly.
This outing continued that troubling trend for Severino.
Severino has looked sharp again over his last few starts including in the AL Wild Card Game.
He also created his own unfortunate spot in Yankees postseason history. Alex Cora was Houston's bench coach in that title-winning season, and he helped his club dispatch the Red Sox in four games in the ALDS. Yankees relievers added gasoline to the fire, with all five who entered allowing at least one run. To the surprise of just about everyone, including potentially even himself, Lance Lynn jogged to the mound.
That's also the only run Eovaldi has conceded in four Red Sox appearances against NY this season, covering 23 innings. Jonathan Holder allowed one run in two innings, making him New York's most effective pitcher in the game. The 2015 All-Star also doubled home a run in the eighth and finished with five RBIs.
Just like that, Holt has become the first player in Major League Baseball history to hit for the cycle in the postseason.
There's no other way to put it. Each made the case for more playing time in the postseason, but who do you sit? Fortunately for the Yankees, it only counts as one game. Or would they start Porcello and risk being eliminated?
