Red Sox knocked down the Yankees tower and advanced in the Playoffs

The Boston Red Sox relived the New York Yankees' worst nightmares at Fenway Park and beat 6 runs to 2 to enter the American League Division Series.

From the very first episode, the red-legged, with a home run by Xander Bogaerts, took the advantage of the scoreboard.

Bogaerts dispatched a gear change through center field and brought in Rafael Devers, who had already walked on base.

Kyle Schwarber, also went to the street opening the offense of Boston in the third inning, extended the advantage and removed the commitment to Gerrit Cole.

Cole was only able to complete two innings, allowed 3 runs and 4 hits, and showed some lack of control by awarding two walks.

For his part, Nathan Eovaldi was unworkable in 5.1 innings pitched and handed out 8 strikeouts.

Eovaldi was only disturbed in the sixth inning, with a home run by Anthony Rizzo and a single by Aaron Judge, when Alex Cora decided to take him out of the commitment.

In that inning the Yankees were able to react with a single by Giancarlo Stanton, but Judge was put out at the plate and finished killing the team's rally.

Executioner sentenced the game

Boston did not forgive any of the mules' mistakes in the engagement, avoided the reaction in the sixth with good defense and took advantage of Jonathan Loáisiga's lack of control in the seventh.

The Nicaraguan after retiring the first batter gave two consecutive walks and Chad Green, who would then base another on base on balls, allowed an unstoppable producer by Alex Verdugo.

With the commitment 6 runs to 1, New York could do nothing, only a home run by Stanton in the top of the ninth to reduce the lead.

In this way, Aaron Boone fails again with the Yankees in the postseason, while Boston returns to the Division Series after two years.
