Hernandez was overruled on 3-of-4 video reviews of his decisions at first base during Boston's 16-1 rout of the New York Yankees on Monday night. After all, NY hit by far the most home runs of any team in the regular season, and it scored five or more runs in an inning 16 times (per Baseball Reference). "I don't think it's really quite settled in yet".
"Well obviously yeah, I knew I needed to hit a home run", Holt said after the game.
The Red Sox hold homefield advantage over the Astros, but Houston holds homefield advantage over the Yankees.
What's more evident is which side will account for more money. Unlike Boston's Eovaldi, Severino could not get ahead of batters, and the Red Sox made him and the Yankees pay.
According to the TBS telecast, Severino did not begin warming up until 7:32 p.m. ET, only 10 minutes before he threw his first pitch.
"So I was saying before that, on a 10-1 score, Benintendi took off to run and stole a base". There were 11 hits given up, two of them home runs, and opponents hit.183 against them.
Red Sox starter Rick Porcello, meanwhile, was far more effective, allowing just one run on four hits in five innings, striking out one and walking zero, while throwing 48 of 65 pitches for strikes.
Looking to play left-handed hitters against Severino, the first-year skipper inserted Holt at second base and Rafael Devers at third.

Patrick Cushing, who worked for the New York State Senate, and his girlfriend, Amanda Halse, also died in the crash. Abeling said in an interview from upstate NY where her family was gathered. "Our lives have been changed forever".
New York Yankees fans aren't exactly covering themselves in glory this postseason. The stolen base, in particular, was laughable in that it actually offended anyone.
"It just kind of shows you what kind of team we have and that we could explode at any minute", Betts said.
Instead, coming off a career-high 19 wins, he exited with a 1-2 record and a 6.26 ERA in six postseason starts. All three calls were overturned on instant replay. Nothing anyone can do now other than turn the page and focus on Game Four tonight. Steve Pearce later scored Benintendi on an RBI single to give Boston an 8-0 advantage. "I thought Angel Hernandez called a good game".
"He had plenty of warm-up", manager Aaron Boone said.
With the season on the line tonight, Boone cannot let Sabathia go through the lineup a third time unless the Yankees have a huge lead. Brett Gardner was back in center, but Boone said he wouldn't hesitate to use Hicks in any role off the bench.
He called the balls and strikes last night, leading to Yankees starter CC Sabathia questioning Hernandez' ability after the lefty allowed three runs in three innings before getting pulled.
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. And their backup catcher wound up pitching. "I saw Romine was on the mound, so you get a little antsy when a position player is on the mound".
